In a bid to take my mind off the gloomy weather outside, I’ve been burning this gorgeous Bordeaux Fig & Vetiver candle from Paddywax recently. I’ll find any excuse to make the house all cosy and, as I waded through a pile of admin yesterday, it certainly took the edge off being stuck indoors.
Packaged in an upcycled wine bottle (and topped off with a sustainably-sourced wooden lid), this soy wax candle has a rich fig scent, whilst the vetiver adds a certain herbal freshness that stops it from being cloying. I really like the way the dark glass creates a muted glow: just perfect for creating a little ambience as the nights draw in.
The whole Eco range, which also includes room diffusers and triple-milled soaps is just lovely thanks to its combination of beautiful packaging, an intriguing range of scents and some eco-friendly credentials thrown in for good measure.
Suffice to say, it’s going to be a fragrant winter in our house…
My candle was kindly provided by The Fragrance Lounge – thank you!
