Some light on the matter

Scented candles are one of those perfect gifts, mainly given by women to women. They’re great because (whilst admittedly a bit unimaginative) everyone likes them, they’re simple and the kind of thing you don’t really treat yourself too =  a great gift.

They are also the kind of thing you imagine yourself using in the more perfect version of your life. The one where you make your own bread, have a fridge full of intriguing ingredients you actually know how to use and waft around looking elegant in statement necklaces. For me that also involves me having long relaxing baths in a room flickering with gentle candle light and ideally scented by some marvellous candle. In reality I know I get bored within about five minutes, but I still like the idea.

So when I was contacted recently by  The Scented Candle Shop asking if I’d like to review some of their products I was all for it.

Now some of their lines are not really for me, the colours are too bold and the packaging too fussy but I did really like the look of their St Eval and Heaven Scent ranges.

Here are the St Eval ones I received.

Quite good for me as I have some unused lanterns that these are perfect for. I really liked the one from the Victorian Herb Range, it’s a nice concept and also smelt lovely.

From the same line I also received some candle tins which had really pleasant fragrances.

All good so far but my favourite by a long way was the candle jar from the Aromatherapy range by Heaven Scent. It smelt amazing and I think it looks really cool. If I were to buy one it would be this one.

And here I am trying them all out at once in a kind of scented candle megamix. Lovely.
