Do you enjoy burning candles?

One thing I really enjoy in the evenings is to burn a scented candle, either in the living room whilst relaxing watching tv or in the bedroom as you are settling down to go to sleep.

The two candles I have been loving at the moment are:

Crabtree & Evelyn – Wanderlust Dream

I have always been a fan of Crabtree & Evelyn hand products but never tried any of their candles or diffusers before. This candle is 200g so pretty big and the jar is so simple and stylish you can either show the logo and candle name or turn it round for a plain side.

This one is so relaxing and I have it next to my bed to burn for half an hour before I plan to drift of the sleep. it is so calming and helps me to relax and get to sleep better.

This scent is described as “Dream away to your hearts content with the beautiful essences in this luxurious fragranced candle designed to fill your bedroom with enchantment. A balance of feminine florals and woody masculine notes create ambient layers of sophistication. Powdery violet and geranium blend with earthier hints of iris and cinnamon leaf. Incense like spice notes of elemi pricked with aromatic pink pepper, warm cedarwood and smooth tobacco add a mellow dreamy mood.”

Brinley Williams – Fairy Dust

With the Brinley Williams candles you can personalize what the jar says or pick from a variety of options. Once you have done this you can then select what scent you prefer:

Amber Noir, Wild Jasmine, Spring Breeze, Parma Violet, Fairy Dust, Mocca, Fresh Verbena, Pure Vanilla, Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Black Pomegranate, Fig & Cassis & Festive Spice.

I think it is great you can personalize them. Mine says: All you need is love, and handbags and shoes. It is a great size (230g) and I have used it a handful of times in the evenings and it hasn’t really gone down too much so it will last for ages 🙂

The fairy dust scent is very sweet and is described as “A stunning powdery soft floral fragrance. A stunning powdery soft floral signature balances night blooming jasmine with fresh cassis, while hints of ozone create a shimmering effect. Complex musk tones intertwine with rare woods and a hint of vanilla at the base of the scent. Simply dreamy.”

Do you have a favourite candle?

    Great post, love the personalised, Yankee Candles can now have pictures printed on the labels I think!
    I’ve been in love with my large Yankee Snow in Love. But also strangely when I am in the bath I picked up a £1 small veet vapour rub candle and it is so amazing! slightly strange admittedly but lush for the bath.

    I am a huge candle collector and there is nothing i enjoy more than relaxing to a gorgeous scented candle. One of my favourite scents is mixed spice. Anything Christmasy to be honest!

    Scented (or unscented – I’m not picky!) candles are my big joy in winter! They always make the dark and cold season feel so much more comfortable. That personalized candle sounds like the perfect gift!

    I love scented candles but it’s isn’t very convenient when you’ve a sensitive nose and hay fever 😅 but these candles sound amazing. Also I love burning candles, it always makes me feel cosy and comfortable for some reasons. Great post! x

    I used to never be obsessed with candles! I was definitley missing out on all the fun scents and homey feels. I love to burn one after a long day.

    I love candles! My faves are Bath & Bodyworks but since you can’t get them in the UK I may have to give these a go! Great post x

    I love burning candles. Especially the ones infused with more exotic scents. My favourite at the moment is kitchen spice by Yankee candle.
