Let me tell you a secret – until earlier this year I had never bought a single candle.
Why I hear you say? Well my dad is a little bit strict and is not the biggest fan of naked flames burning (even from something as innocent as a candle). So when he moved out it was time to strike and I bought some of my first ever candles.
Candles are perfect for warming up a room and so many candles these days have a gorgeous scent that makes your room smell amazing. With everything fron luxury brands like Jo Malone to budget friendly Yankee Candle the choice is endless, have a look at some of the candles currently on my wishlist.
Burberry Beauty Black Amber scented candle
A classic looking candle that is instilled with relaxing notes of vanilla, patchouli and white musk. It will leave your room smelling like a sweet courtyard of flowers.
