My favourite luxury candles

Wick and Tallow

Did you know that Lucy means "light"? No me neither, but I blame this fact for my love of candles. 

A woman can never have too many candles, they smell divine and I love the way they can make a place homely.

Over the years I have used lots of candles below are some of my favourites.  


Kitsune candles

Kitsune Maison Candles although aimed at men, I love them. The Mint candle is one of my favourites it reminds me of adventures in Morocco and smells 
like Moroccan mint tea in a candle. Moss smells like a fresh cut lawn. They retail at £40.

The Hype Noses Candles pack a punch on smell.

 The Hype Noses Candles

The Mon Bel Oranger and Narcissisme retailing at £39 smell absolutely divine.

Now these beauties...Wick and tallow candles
Wickandtallow they don't only look wonderful and vibrant in any home, they also smell yummy. I have told you previously that I love Jo Malone Lime and Basil, well the Wick and Tallow Lemongrass candle smells the same. It retails at £35.    

I can't wait for the Neroli Beaumont coming out soon watch this space.

  1. I do love candles but I do thing a lot are very overpriced, I wouldn't spend that much on a candle. It's cool that Lucy means light, my road bike is called Lucy :p

    1. Candles are a luxury for birthdays and christmas. I agree there expensive but cheaper a burn quickly these beauties burn for about 35 hours and they have real oils so give off a wonderful smell. Excellent choice on the bike name Lucy x

  5. We love candles too. Lucy = light...fate, you can't hide your love for candles! They all look so classy with the Wick and Tallow candles giving that added extra with their wonderful colours. The Kitsune Maison candles packaging has been well thought out, would love the smell the moss one - fresh! Can't wait for your review on the Neroli Beaumont :-)

  6. Gorgeous post! I love Jo Malone Fig & Cassis and Diptyque Figue (bit of a fig nut!) Recently smelt the Mint Tea Cire Trudon which I love but they are SUPER expensive!

    1. I have the fig and cassis in a calogne but not tried the candel. Lime and basil is my favourite in their candels and lotion. The mint tea cira sounds interesting. Lucy
