The Great Escape Crackling Candle Collection
When autumn rolls around I feel the need to burn ALL the candles I own, it just makes me feel so cosy and they make any room look instantly homely and inviting! When these beautifully packaged candles arrived, I almost squealed with joy as they look so unique and pinterest worthy - aesthetically it would make a special, substantial gift. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter then you would have already seen these pretty candles in action. 

I have *The Great Escape The Big Smoke Cracking Candle Collection (£31) which contains four smaller size 70g candles, all of which are hand poured using EcoSoya wax in the following fragrances:

- Escape To Honolulu: Pineapple & Coconut

- Escape To Jaipur: Spiced Ginger

- Escape To Mississippi: Creme Brûlée 

- Escape To Paris: Champagne & Rose 

The use of soy wax is fantastic as it gives a cleaner burn and it is better for the environment. The candles are hand crafted from start to finish which makes them quite special, in my opinion as well as a lovely treat for yourself or as a cute gift for someone else! This collection features a unique 'cracking' wick which makes a gentle cracking sound when burning which I think is such a lovely addition and it just adds to the autumnal and cosy atmosphere - think open crackling fire, blankets and a hot chocolate.

The first candle I wanted to try after smelling them in the gift box was the Escape To Jaipur scent which is a spiced ginger fragranced candle. The smaller 70g candles have an approximate burn time of 15 hours. The scent of this candle is so delicious, it smells like musky ginger mixed with earthy spices - for me it is a gorgeous autumnal scent.  The relaxing crackling of the wick is such a nice touch to the candles. This scent is definitely one of my favourites from this set. 

Next up the Escape To Mississippi candle which is the creme brûlée candle - it smells similar to the discontinued Yankee Candle in Danish Butter Cookie which is one of my all time favourite candles. It smells like vanilla, desserts and baking which are all such homely and calming scents to me. Although unlike the Yankee Candle scent, this one isn't headache inducing or sickly sweet; it's a lovely creamy scent that everyone who has smelt it has loved instantly! 

The next two candles are a little different, the Escape To Paris fragrance consists of Champagne and Rose notes and to me it does smell like a sweet, floral and uplifting scent - it sounds like a typical feminine fragrance but I haven't had a candle that smells quite like this before. When burning the scent is very subtle which is great for me as sometimes strong candles can give me a headache. It has a lovely light floral scent that is quite sweet, almost candy like. 

Last but not least, the Escape To Honolulu candle which is a summery pineapple and coconut scented candle. I have to be honest and say that pineapple isn't my favourite scent but this candle to me smells like delicious creamy coconut, suncream and a hint of fruity sweetness. I'm surprised at how much I love this scent and it is stronger than the previous candle but it's not overpowering or too sweet - it's the PERFECT summer candle! 

Overall, I'm so impressed with these beautiful candles, I've loved burning them and having them subtly fill the house with lovely scents - especially the Escape To Jaipur and Escape To Mississippi fragrances. All of the candles burn slowly and evenly, so there is no product waste. I adore the whole aesthetic and branding, it is so unique and high quality - even the business cards, products cards and product packaging is detailed, gorgeous and special. I cannot get enough of these candles and I would highly recommend this set!  You can buy from The Great Escape website or from their store on Not On The Highstreet. Also they don't just have gorgeous candles but they have a cuticle oil that sounds lovely as well as wide range of reasonably priced beauty treatments. Stay tuned because there might be an exciting giveaway with the super generous people at The Great Escape! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5!
