Ok I've learnt you can't beat a decent candle. I used to be the type of person that would pick a candle up from the poundshop after the first light the scent would be gone it would burn super quick and to be honest you got what you paid for.
I am a candle hoarder whatever I'm doing on the evenings it will be in the dark with a candle burning. I love different scents and a candle scent that lingers so I can engage with it.
When The Country Candle Company asked me if I would try one of the candies from the range I was delighted.
They pour and hand blend all the Country Candles in small batches in their own factory in the English countryside of Wiltshire. By doing this they know every candle is perfect quality. The exceptional fragrances are all from a leading English perfumer and will scent a room perfectly. They have a fantastic range with a style to suit all ages and requirements. designer led packaging makes a wonderful already wrapped gift or home accessory.
I received a morello cherry & almond fragrance from the polka dot collection, it came gift wrapped which I always love. The smaller company's I find always gift wrap which I think is a perfect extra touch. It makes you feel that little bit more special opening something gift wrapped.
The candle comes in a little tin, the design of polka dots is very pretty and eye catching very shabby chic.The scent is AMAZING!! It reminds me of cherry bakewell cakes, the cherry and almond is a great combination very fresh and sweet. The candle lasts and there was still a scent in the morning, even with the lid off when you get close to it you can really smell it. Even the other half made a comment on how it reminded him of the cakes.
The candle also comes in a medium size which is around 60 hours burn time, the candle in a tin is around 30 hours. There is some unusual scents available in the ranges, I'm very curious to find out what fig and cassis smells like. I would definitely buy these again, most likely in the bigger size. They have some beautiful gift sets and Initial candles which would make great gifts for the loved ones in your life.
