Warning – my candle addition has taken a turn for the, obsessive. The fact that I may currently have a minimum of five candles sitting pride of place in my bedroom (not beginning to think about the ones stored away for a rainy day) shows that this candle loving streak is not going to dissipate anytime soon. What can I say, I just adore the warm and cozy feeling they impart on a room and the fragrance helps to calm and and relax me whilst making my room smell scrumptious. A couple of weeks ago I trundled to the White Company to have a sniff around their new candles for Spring. This may have involved me putting my nose into a bell jar on more than one occasion but it was well worth it! The White Company are a brand that I’ve looked on with envy but if only I had stepped inside and looked past the expensive items in the shop window, I would have found out that their signature candles only cost £20. Not too shabby considering you get around 28 hours of burn time.
These are not the most expensive candles I own however they do feel like some of the most luxe. The shopping experience within The White Company is very relaxed and you are well looked after. Everything within the store is crisp and clean and as soon as you open the door you are instantly engulfed by the gorgeous fragrances inside. For the changing of the seasons The White Company have launched a set of Spring scent candles. From White Geranium to Fresh Herbs and even Cut Grass, all your favourite Springtime scents have been captured. White Geranium is the new spa fragrance that is housed in a ceramic pot with a lid included in the £26 price tag. A serene floral scent this gives a new lease of life to the traditional lavender fragrance as the mixture of eucalyptus keeps this very calm and fresh. English Garden is part of the limited edition trio and this candle has sweet notes of honeysuckle, jasmine and lilac that combine to take you away to a warm summers day. A cheaper price of £16 and 20 hours burn time the packaging I find to be adorable and the glass candle sits price of place wherever it lives.
The White Company have also introduced Rose as a new signature fragrance. This means you can snap it up for £20 and it will be a permanent addition to their line of candles. A rich and global scent this is akin to an English rose garden with a very light floral fragrance which envelopes a room. Giving a contemporary twist to a classic this is a must have candle that every home needs. These candles transmit the most gorgeous aroma without even being burned, when lit the burn is clean and smoke free and the wax melts evenly. Candle perfection!
