I recently discovered www.lovearoma.co.uk which is a website that sells some gorgeous scented products for the home including candles, reed diffusers, wax melters and more. Here are a couple of candles that I tried out.
Lily Flame Fairy Dust Candle £8.50
I recently discovered the Fairy Dust scent in a local garden centre and fell in love with it straightaway. It is definitely a girly scent, really sweet, pretty and light.
The candle comes in a little round tin with a detachable lid and is cream in colour with white and pink decoration. The candle lasts around 30-35 hours, which I was surprised at as it is quite a small candle.
Once lit, the fragrance freshens up the room and I found that the scent lingered after for the rest of the evening, which I loved as some candles can barely be smelt when lit, nevermind afterwards.
The Lily Flame range also includes room sprays and so this may well be my next purchase.
Durance Linen Flower Candle £12.95
Before discovering Love Aroma, I had never heard of Durance candles, and I found out that they also produce reed diffusers and room sprays and come in lots of gorgeous fragrances. The scent I tried out was Linen Flower.
Durance candles are all handcrafted and made in France, with a burn duration of around 40 hours. The packaging is simple but effective, and consists of a plain glass holder, wrapped in corrugated card, a straw ribbon and a little cream card label on the front.
As all of the Durance range are quite neutral looking colours, they are perfect for any room and are adorable as gifts. The scent of the candle is really light but uplifting and fresh, and doesn’t necessarily remind me of linen, but there is definitely a gorgeous floral scent in there, that is a little woodier than for example a rose floral fragrance.
As with the Lily Flame candle, the fragrance could be smelt throughout the day after I had lit it in the morning and kept my room smelling clean and fresh.
