Our friends at Kiss Air Candles kindly sent me one of their new glass jar candles to test out and review. I’ve been going through a bit of a figgy phase so I was super happy to review their Fig & Plum candle.
Our friends at The Fragrance Lounge kindly sent me a couple of candles from the Paddywax Urban Collection, which you can read about HERE. The first one I reviewed was their Fig & Olive 3.5oz/99g candle, you can read that review HERE and now I’ll be reviewing their Salted Grapefruit 8oz/226g candle.
Salted Grapefruit has top notes of Lemon and Grapefruit, middle notes of Red Berry and base notes of Orange and Sea Salt. It’s a very uplifting and bright aroma that will awaken your senses. The citrus notes are very tart and the salt element really adds some zing to the fragrance. Read More
Our friends at The Fragrance Lounge kindly sent me a couple of candles from the Paddywax Urban Collection, which you can read about HERE. The first one I’ll be reviewing is a Fig & Olive 3.5oz/99g candle. It’s taken me so long to do this first review because I’ve been really savouring this candle.
Fig & Olive is described as a Mediterranean medley of enticing fragrances. The rich fruity aroma of freshly picked figs blends beautifully with the fresh herbaceous scent radiated from the leafy branches of an olive tree. The overall aroma is deep, fruity and truly irresistible. Read More
Regular instagram followers will know that I do enjoy a good quote and any chance to get a good quote AND a candle is always going to be a winner for me. When The Fragrance Lounge asked me to review a Paddywax candle, there were so many choices but as soon as I saw this one. I knew I had to have it!
Also I absolutely loved the scent choice and as everyone knows by now, I’m such a vanilla fan and last year also made me branch out more into more mandle type scents; oak, tobacco, amber etc. Tobacco Flower is a scent I’ve sampled quite a lot recently, maybe it was the vanilla that made me like this one more but it really is the best one. This could be because this is actually the only soy wax version actually, that really could be why.
It isn’t an overly floral scent, so obviously I love this. If you are more into your fruity or food scents, then this one is definitely not for you. I would definitely recommend this for the man in your life… also I’m sure a lot of you will enjoy it too. The Vanilla does sweeten it out and it could still make you think of a relaxing spa I’m sure.
I cannot believe that it’s basically June, I’m not complaining, as I have lots to look forward towards the end of the year. I do hope that the summer doesn’t drag on, I’m not a fan of heat or sunshine, I’m all about snow and lack of sun!
So as I’m avoiding all the UV rays and vitamin d, I thought I’d share some of my favourite products from May with you…
