The brand's unveiled its Christmas 2021 gifting collection that includes its debut candle as well as a new lipstick shade and scented bath oil pods
Fans of Glossier's Body Hero range: rejoice. The brand's famous orange blossom and neroli scent, used in its popular bath and body products, has just been transformed into the very first Glossier candle, especially for Christmas 2021.
Glossier founder Emily Weiss has been teasing the launch of a candle since 2017 but, much to super-fans' dismay, nothing has ever materialised – until now. The limited-edition coconut and soy wax creation was unveiled today as part of Glossier's latest festive holiday collection comprising three gift sets. In a millennial pink glass jar, it's sure to sit pretty on your dressing table or bathroom shelf. But it's the divine aroma that makes the candle a standout.
If you've ever tried Glossier's dry-touch body oil Mist, exfoliating soap Bar, oil body wash or perfecting cream body moisturiser, you'll be familiar with the Body Hero blend. Think soft orange blossom and neroli swirled with fresher notes of pear, mandarin, cypress and bergamot – inspired by "chic French baby products," according to Emily, when the range was introduced four years ago.

The candle features in Glossier The Bath Duo, £45, alongside another brand debut – Glossier Bath Pods. Think a luxe and 100 per cent vegan take on traditional bath pearls, filled with skin-conditioning oils and, you guessed it, that same distinctive fragrance.
Incorporating new formulations alongside cult classics, Glossier says its 2021 seasonal collection celebrates "the party that is 'getting ready'" with a campaign fronted by the cast of the new series of Gossip Girl. In the video, actors Evan Mock, Savannah Lee Smith and Zion Moreno (below) can be seen dripping in diamonds and prepping for a night out with room service and bubble baths in a swanky hotel suite... because isn't that what everyone's pre-party session looks like?

Here's a closer look at the full Glossier Holiday 2021 range that goes on sale today (Tuesday 9 November).
Containing five of the brand's most iconic makeup and skincare products, this kit is perfect for Glossier newbies and super-fans alike. Housed in a recyclable paper case, you'll find a Mini Milky Jelly Cleanser, Mini Priming Moisturiser, Mini Balm Dotcom in Rose, full-sized Boy Brow pomade and full-sized Lash Slick mascara.
Hello brand new shade! This set comes in an embossed box and stars three of Glossier's most popular lip formulas in a limited edition crimson red hue.
There's a buttery Ultralip, super-shiny Lip Gloss and matte Generation G.
The main event – this is the set that features the brand new Glossier candle and bath pods, both limited edition and being sold exclusively for Christmas 2021.
Presented in another luxe-looking embossed box, it comprises 18 of the 4ml bath pods, in their own branded pink tub, while the candle is 113g (for comparison a standard Diptyque candle is 190g) and made from coconut and soy wax – designed to give a cleaner, smoother and slower burn compared to paraffin wax candles.
