You’ll all know that we love our fruity based scents here at V&L. This Blackberry & Bay Leaf candle is another immediate favourite. First of all check out the cute box packaging from The Great Little Candle Company!
Immediately you know that this is a great way of not having to wrap up gifts (anyone else not good at wrapping!?) and the flower detail is so cute. Love it!
I was almost too stubborn to not open it…
Don’t talk daft! Of course I did.
The candle tin is also designed beautifully, I love the design and it did feel very a “great” little candle company.
Using soy wax and the best fragrance oils they have a beautiful range of scents. This scent is so beautiful, the morning I chose to light it was a day that later on would involve blackberry picking. A very blackberry day!
The scent is described as “fresh floral fragrance blackcurrant, lemon and green leaves leading to a heart of lily of the valley and precious woods.”
It is very fruity but it’s also very woody too, which I liked. It’s almost a mandle at times as the wood tones take over. It’s a gorgeous scent perfect for all year round. After doing my own blackberry picking it really helped to enlighten the senses. You can also smell the lemon, not strongly but it really pushes the blackberry smell out more. It made me more eager to eat the blackberries that we’d picked, make jams and pies.
I got just under 40 hours out of this candle which for a £8 candle is superb. There was no tunneling and the scent throw stayed strong throughout. I was super impressed! With the handy packaging these would make ideal gifts and I’m looking forward to seeing what Christmas brings for them (it’s never too early to discuss Christmas!)
