We have scented candles in each room of our tiny house to make our home smell lovely but also because I
think they are super relaxing and romantic. Throughout winter D and I spent many evenings chatting away on the sofa with the front room lit only by candlelight. At least one evening a week we treat ourselves (switching on the immersion heater is a luxury when you are on a budget) to a bath together with the light off and just a couple of candles flickering gently while we chat and relax among the bubbles. There’s something about the soft glow of light candles fill a room with that makes all my worries drift away and brings on a deep sense of relaxation. offered me a number of candles from their online shop to try out and write about. Their online shop is easy to navigate and stocks several candle brands including Yankee Candle, WoodWick and Price’s. I selected a small Yankee Candle called Pineapple Cilantro for £7.99  because the description made it sound like it would smell of Pina Colada cocktails- one of my favourite smells. I am very happy to confirm it smells like a fresh cocktail of pineapple and coconut; perfect for spring.

I also chose 12 Bolsius Lowboy jar candles which are made from glass and embossed with a lovely vintage design. They are sold individually for £1.89 or in packs of six for £10.20. These will be perfect to place around the garden when we have BBQs. With a burn time of up to 75 hours they should last all summer!

The candles arrived well-packed and extremely quickly. I was slightly concerned by the prospect of ordering candles from a website because the glass could get damaged during transportation but carefully wrapped each candle in bubble wrap and packed them all into a box tightly.

I certainly recommend on the basis that they have such an extensive range of candles and the fact they are delivered so quickly.
