You can’t tell me that at this time of year you wouldn’t love to light some candles, make yourself your own pumpkin spice latte and snuggle up on the couch with a big warm blanket; to me that’s basically what autumn is all about.
Having NEVER tried them before, when the lovely folks at Colonial Candle contacted me about doing a review, I jumped at the chance.
I had a browse around their site, and it all just became one big online wishlist for me; not only did their candles look great but all the different scents sounded just heavenly.
I was over the moon (still am) when two AMAZING candles arrived at my door, from The Collection range.
These candles say “The Light of Luxury” on them and that’s just what they are, they ooze luxury. Read More
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.
