A couple of weeks ago I won a competition over at Heather’s blog, Of Beauty and Nothingness for a Great Escape candle. I was literally over the moon when it was announced I have a huge obsession with candles, I think that they just instantly make any room look so much cosier. Great Escape are a company admittedly I have not heard of before which I wish I had known about sooner!
Great Escape currently have a collection ‘The Big Smoke Crackling Candle’ which includes 4 beautiful candles, Escape to Paris, Escape to Honolulu, Escape to Jaipur and Escape to Mississippi
I received the Escape to Jaipur candle (£22.00) which is a lovely spiced ginger candle, perfect for this time of year. When the candle arrived it came in a gorgeous presentation box, looking very gift like which makes it feel that more special and perfect for any gift buying opportunities especially as Christmas is fast approaching.
“Jaipur is a colourful Indian city with chaotic streets, dawdling camels and breathtaking sights. This luxury, hand poured candle is made using EcoSoya soy wax and scented with a stimulating fragrance of spiced ginger.”
What I absolutely love about this candle is that it features a wooden wick that when burning it resembles a crackling fire making your living room even more cosier during these colder months. The scent is a lovely spiced ginger which is a subtle scent but yet fills the whole room, it makes you want to just grab every blanket in the house, light the candle and cosy up with a film.
This candle isn’t like your ordinary candle, it is made from soy wax using soy beans which is a renewable resource, this is better for both you and the environment which is always a bonus when buying things. Can it get any better?! well, yes these beautiful autumnal candles burn for approximately 40 hours which is brilliant for candle lovers like myself.
What’s your favourite candle scent?
