As mentioned in my earlier post, my fiancé and I have developed a love for candles. Here are some of my favourite scented candles...
I only discovered these last year when they appeared on a wedding gift list. I investigated by going to John Lewis and spent an age sniffing each individual candle in turn. At around £8 each, I think they are quite pricey (especially when I liked so many of the scents!), but then the tins are so lovely and the scents are so divine I think it’s worth it. We currently have 3 in our collection...
1. Fairy Dust
This is a gorgeous, very sweet, girly scent. I love how the little bits on top of the candles look like dolly mixture. Very cute.
Another girly scent but more subtle and less sweet than Fairy Dust. I love the baby pink colour of the wax.
3. Mellow Figs & Garden Mint
This is a lovely fresh scent for the bedroom. The mint isn't distinctive, it mixes with the fig to create a light, airy, clean-smelling scent!
Laura Ashley - Rose : £10
Really the box is what attracted me to this candle. With a gorgeous dusky pink satin box and a bow, I thought this would look lovely on my dressing table (when we eventually buy one!) Inside was a delightful find. This deliciously scented candle is carved in the shape of a rose with a little butterfly on top, lovely!
Orla Kiely – White Tea : £25.00
I was sent this an a little extra by a PR company recently. The white tea scent is lovely and comforting. Due to the contemporary box design I can see this being placed in the living room when we move.
Next I’m keen to try a Yankee candle. I love the glass jars they come in, it’s always a bonus having a candle in some packaging you’d like to keep afterwards. Any recommendations for particular fragrances I should consider?
