As mentioned in my previous post, I had an extended break away from work for the Christmas holidays, so after two full days in the office at my day job so far- wow! it feels as if I have already worked a full week. I do wish today was Friday…
I’m taking it easy tonight! My mini-me is fast asleep in bed now, and one of my best ways to unwind is to switch off the lights and have my candles lit.
Current candles I’m burning are Diptyque – ‘Feu De Bois’ (which is sadly coming to an end). I purchased this candle a good six months ago and although I haven’t burnt it daily as it’s only the smaller sized candle, it has lasted well. I bought the candle from Space NK.
I think It’s always hard to describe a fragrance as I think it’s quite a personal thing, I would say Feu De Bois has a fairly woody, warm fragrance – it is definitely a candle ideal for winter. Over the years I have become a bit of a candle snob and will pay in the region of £20 for a good quality candle with no nasty ingredients but rather full of good natural ingredients to which Diptyque confirm for their candles. As these candle are full of natural ingredients this candle burns very cleanly which is another sign go it being good quality.
I am also burning a candle which was purchased for me as a Christmas present. This candle was part of gift set from French Connection which came complete with bath foam and body butter – which currently are unopened.
The fragrance of this candle is definitely vanilla, i’m not quite sure if it is made from natural ingredients, but I always make the exception where gifts are concerned from my nearest and dearest’s because it truly is the thought that counts!
This candle comes set within a gorgeous tumbler with has a silvery cracked pattern running through it, so when lit against candle light it looks positively delightful.
Right then back to relaxing, but before I go…. How do you like to relax? Do you have any favourite candles?
Thanks for reading.
