I love scented candles! They are probably more of a winter indulgence for me, as I associate them more with cold, dark nights and cosy evenings by the fire, but I have been investing in many fresher, lighter scents recently with Spring well on its way.
I discovered Woodwick Candles through my mum a couple of years ago when I was visiting, and was immediately taken by the gorgeous scent fragrancing her living room. Since then, I have purchased several and I have yet to come across one I don’t like!
The classic candles come in two different sizes –
- 10oz at £13.99 which burns for up to 100 hours
- 22ox at £20.99 which burns for up to 180 hours
There is a huge range of scents available from the ordinary to the extraordinary. I particularly like the Wild Bluebell scent which fills a room very quickly with a gorgeous floral aroma.
The candles are all made of high-quality soy wax so that they produce a cleaner and slower burn than conventional paraffin wax candles and there is none of the annoying ‘tunnelling’ present where the candle burns only down the centre – the whole of the candle burns meaning they are excellent value for money. One of the more unique elements of these candles is that they all have a wooden wick which gives a subtle crackling sound whilst burning! It is very quiet, so it is very unobtrusive, but it is a nice relaxing background accompaniment.
In addition to the classic candles, there are also:
- Trilogy Candles (which have 3 scents in one jar)
- Smaller ‘Petit’ Candles
There are new scents being launched all the time and I am particularly fond of the special Christmas offerings, especially the cranberry one!
Where to Buy- Direct from their website Woodwick or if you want to sniff before you buy, many small independent gift shops sell them.
