UPDATE 22/10/2015 – You’ve probably found this page after searching for something relating to Coley & Gill.
We’ve been contacted too many times regarding this brand after writing one review. No, we are not Coley & Gill, I swear! We are two ladies who once purchased a candle and wrote a review about it. If you have any problems with your Coley & Gill products we’d advise that you bring them back to the store where you purchased them. Please, PLEASE do not send us threatening emails and/or pictures of your phlegm/mucus or any other bodily fluids. (Yes, this happened!) We’re too sweet and innocent to deal with stuff like that lol. Remember, you get what you pay for. – S&S
When I picked it up I couldn’t really smell the vanilla which in many circumstances would have made me put it down but it was only one pound. When I was lighting the candle I did notice that the design of the candle made a pretty pattern that made me say oooh! But the smell was where exactly?! Also the wick kept disintegrating and I ended up with speckled wax. Urgh. I have a teeny tiny spoon that I use to scoop it out, I don’t have OCD but that makes me get very OCD.
When I got about 3/4 down the candle it started to smell but it wasn’t vanilla, it was a burning smell. I know how to burn a candle, trim a wick etc and as soon as it started smelling like a bonfire it was in the bin! Obviously I blew out the flame and let it cool first.
It was just £1 so I don’t feel too annoyed but I did a bit of digging and found out that they do quite a few scents and started to think why bother, seems like a company that needs to perfect it’s candle quality first before going into lots of scents. Particularly as they don’t smell! Even for £1 I’m disappointed not by the price but by how much I love candles and when I get one that’s not so good, it makes me have a sad face.
Oh and want to eat cake.
