Amid continuing efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19, many are staying in to celebrate the holidays this year. Whether that means gathering in small groups or doing them solo, we see this as a time to both be safe and treat yourself.

If, like us, this year has raised your anxiety and stress levels, you’re in need of rejuvenation. So, while indoors, why not use this time to invest in, well, you and indulge in some much-needed self-care?

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up a selection of pick-me-ups that will help you enjoy the holidays, no matter how you celebrate.

Maison Francis Kurkdjianl’Homme À la rose
from $215
(Available at 2 Merchants)

Launched just a few months ago, this fragrance by Maison Francis Kurkdjian has quickly become one of our favorites. It’s one of those rare scents that successfully uses rose in a gender-neutral way. Formulated with grapefruit accord, Damask rose from Bulgaria, and sage from France, it’s a wonderful, luxurious scent to spritz yourself with over the holidays – and the act of using fragrance on the daily is a great mood elevator.

AesopCallippus Aromatique Candle
Buy at Aesop Store

For all the Aesop fans, you can now scent your home with its recently-launched line of candles. We’ve been using Callippus, which uses vetiver, frankincense, and shiso as its main ingredients. The woody fragrance is a great way to create those cozy vibes. And, much like Aesop’s other products, the candle’s casing looks like a lovely decorative object.

DiptyqueCoriander Candle
from $65
(Available at 8 Merchants)

Something we’ve been experimenting with while working from home is layering candle scents. Snobs, take note. Simultaneously lighting Diptyque’s Coriander candle and its Tuberose candle creates a new scent, like an Indian spice market. Try layering your candles this holiday season to come up with your own unique scent.

Skincare soared this year with the increased amount of time we’ve spent indoors, and we’re not mad about it. One of our favorite products this year is skinbetter Science’s Alto Defense Serum.
