However, I cannot say no to a pretty candle or two so when I had to opportunity to work with the lovely people at My Pure, I had to choose a couple of gorgeously luxe candles. I had to. My Pure is a website that features organic, natural and more niche brands as well as more famous brands such as Trilogy, Balance Me, Barefoot SOS, Ecotools and the Yes To...range, most of which I've tried products from and loved.
Isle Of Wolf Lavender Garden Candle (£15, 190ml)Now, let's start by saying that the brand name is just fantastic, as is the luxe packaging! The candles are all handmade from the historic Vilksala manor house near the Baltic sea - how fancy! If you've been following my blog for a while then you will know that I am obsessed with anything that is lavender scented so obviously I had to choose the 'lavender garden' candle. The candles burn evenly, unlike most I've tried and they look so pretty.
The lavender scent is really authentic, not overly sweet or overpowering, it's quite subtle which I think most people would love but I personally would prefer the scent to be a bit stronger as I'm obsessed with lavender; it's such a relaxing scent to me. Each candle has a heatproof and scratchproof coaster attached to it which is such a unique and fantastic idea - I haven't seen that on any other candle! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
Isle Of Wolf Bourbon Vanilla Candle (£15, 190ml)Again, gorgeous packaging and I love the coaster on the bottom which is also beautifully designed. As well as lavender, vanilla is one of the most relaxing and calming scents I can imagine. The vanilla scent to this candle is so warm, musky and rich, it's heavenly. As with the lavender candle, it burns really evenly so there is no wasted wax/money. The scent dispersion of both candle is pretty good especially considering that both are quite subtle. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
Overall, I adore these candles - they look incredibly beautiful (even the boxes they came in were SO pretty) and I think they would make lovely gifts. The scents are authentic and gorgeous but not overpowering or too sweet. I would have liked them to be a bit stronger but that's just my preference. Unlike quite a few candles I've tried, they burn incredibly evenly so there is no wasted wax and therefore money. I cannot recommend these candles enough. My Pure offers free UK delivery too which is fantastic!
