I have a never ending love for candles, I actually blame my mum because she was obsessed and I’ve always been brought up with like a million dotted around the house. I think that candles just always make the room look 100 times cosier when lit, perfect for my Netflix binging of course. So when I had to opportunity to review The Charming Candle Co new jewellery candles (£35) it was obviously a no brainer, I’d be silly not too right!?!
If you have not heard of The Charming Candle Co before then they are a new company just founded in 2017, with a mission to shake up gift-giving. Want to know more? Read ahead.
“We’re new, and we want to be different. We think gifts should be interesting.”
Firstly what instantly catches my eye is the packaging, the candle comes in a gorgeous white box with gold enhancements. Inside your eyes are treated with a beautifully designed candle which comes with gold illustrations printed on clear glass it just looks magical and high quality. The candles are all hand made using natural wax, reusable jars, cotton wicks which are free from lead, tin and zinc, absolutely no bad stuff.
The Charming Candle Co currently have a range of candles all for £35 each allowing you to choose either a charm or jewellery, they currently have Luscious Vanilla, Fresh Linen, Pina Colada, Lavender Spa, Pink Champagne and Paradise Beach.
When it comes to buying candles I always look for the scent rather than how pretty it looks and also how powerful that scent is, because there is nothing worse than a stinky candle and having it burn it for hours without any scent pay off! But you really don’t have that problem with The Charming Candle Co, the scent is strong which you can even smell before you have opened the packaging, always a good sign.
I was kindly sent Luscious Vanilla* which is a rich, warming, creamy concoction. Luscious vanilla has top notes of rich Madagascan vanilla pods whipped to a buttery frenzy with a hint of nutmeg. As soon as I opened the box I recognised the scent which it’s similar to the smell of Lush’s Fun bars so of course I fell in love instantly. As mentioned there is nothing worse than burning a candle with no scent pay off, the candle burns filling your room with a stunning rich vanilla scent which literally spreads throughout the house, it smells AMAZING.
“Scent has the power to define an atmosphere and elevate your mood. Jewellery has the power to be this one little thing that makes you feel unique Surprise! The thrill of discovering what jewellery you get each time is highly addictive”
Just when you think this Candle can’t get any better, it does. The two wick candle comes with a hidden piece jewellery or charm depending on which you choose, so the general idea is that you burn away your candle to reveal your hidden surprise, but be careful because the wax is hot!
I’ve found that you have to burn your candle for a good few hours, I believe mine took around 3-4 hours to reveal the hidden surprise which is covered in foil but then a further hour or so to be able to fully get the foiled piece out.
After much anticipation of what you are going to find in your candle here comes the big reveal, I waited for the foil to cool and was greeted by a beautiful silver rocking horse charm stamped 925 so it is real sterling silver, it is simply beautiful. The charm will fit perfectly on my themed Pandora bracelet for my little girl as each charm has a meaning. The candle still has around 50+ hours left allowing you to enjoy for a movie night, pamper evening or just day to day burning.
Head over to The Charming Candle Co to grab your very own candle. They currently have 20% off for Bank Holiday.
