The Best Spring Summer Candles
If, like me, you associate candles with snowy days and winter festivities, don`t be fooled, there are plenty of light and refreshing summery options on the high street. Here`s a run down of my favourites!
At £16, this candle is very reasonable, the scent has great staying power and will linger throughout the day even after being lit for a short while. The gorgeous tropical fragrance is reminiscent of exotic holidays in the sun. Look out for the other fragrances in the range and corresponding perfumes; the Avocado and Mint is also very nice!
Priced at £42, this candle is a slightly more expensive option but as with all Jo Malone products, you get what you pay for. I love this quirky, nostalgic fragrance; the perfect blend of sweet and sour. It also looks great on your coffee table, mantlepiece or in the bedroom.
These candles are known for their one of a kind organic wooden wick which creates the sound of a crackling fire when lit. This lavender scent has a subtle calming aroma and at £16.99 in medium size is very reasonable. Keep an eye out for Woodwick`s trinity candles, which combine three complimentary fragrances in one and perfectly blend as they melt to create a unique and changing scent as they burn.
This set features four of the brand`s signature scents; Gingerlily, Orange & Bergamot, Ylang-Ylang and Lily of the Valley & Violet Leaf. The miniatures are perfect to dot around the house and light in different rooms. This boxed collection makes a great gift as a set or individually and at £42 is really good value for money.
For all the 60s fans out there the Orla Kiely room fragrance range at John Lewis is perfect for you. Fig Tree is a lovely fruity and zesty scent and is great for eliminating those lingering kitchen smells. Each of the candle jars in the collection feature an iconic Orla Kiely design and are ideal for storing make up brushes or even paint brushes once the wax has melted.
