Mulled wine or Glühwein, as it’s known in Germany, is perfect for the holiday season when the weather is nice and crisp. This warm, spiced beverage will fill your home with a delicious aroma and it’ll warm you from the inside out.
While there are many combinations you can use to make a great mulled wine, black cherry merlot is arguably one of the best. We believe this so heartily, that we’ve added a new black cherry merlot fragrance to our soy candles and melts collection. After whipping up a batch of mulled black cherry wine, be sure to head over to our store so you can enjoy the scent all season long.
