Light up your life
Being a highly fragrant bunch here at Muddy Surrey HQ, we're obsessed with scented candles - and we're loving this range from Surrey-based Candle Spa.
The idea – like all the best ones – is simple: produce a candle that recreates that wonderful feeling of indulgence and relaxation that you get when you visit a spa. A little self-indulgence, if you will.
We test out plenty of designer candles at Muddy, and we reckon this small local company has lit upon something quite clever (see what we did there!!) with their growing range in scents that includes lavender and black pepper, mint and wild jasmine, and pomegranate and white fig.
The fragrances – which have been developed with the help of leading spas and beauty salons – have great ‘throw’, which means they give a lot of bang for their buck. All the candles are hand-poured, and made with natural soy wax.
As well as the luxury range, there’s also the everyday range, which come in stylish tins and cost just £8.99. The large luxury three-wick 50cl candles cost a very reasonable £35 and have a burn-time of about 80 hours. By comparison, a fancy-pants Diptyque one that’s around the same size would be about £55.
And if candles aren’t your thing, Candle Spa also do a range of reed diffusers.
Now, is it too early to write a Christmas list?
