Review: The Country Candle Company

Friday, November 07, 2014
It is no secret that I have a slight...massive obsession with candles, especially at this time of the year when it is cold outside a candle makes a room look and feel so cosy, comforting and homely! Although I do miss the summer sunshine, so this candle combines the best of both worlds. I was kindly sent this candle from the brand The Country Candle Company, to read my personal disclaimer, click here.

I have *The Country Candle Company in 'Mango Mandarin' (£8.50) which is from the polka dot collection. Firstly, I love the packaging, it is so cute, it would make a great gift! The scent is described on the Country Candle Company website as "vibrant and juicy top notes of freshly squeezed mandarin and orange entwine with juicy notes of melon and exotic mango. A heart of delicate white flowers twisted with tart rhubarb rest on a supportive base of soft musks."

The scent is sweet, very tropical and the tart rhubarb definitely comes through along with the exotic mango and juicy mandarin. The candle just screams summer, beaches, refreshing tropical cocktails and sunshine - perfect if you are not interested in the more spicy christmasy scents. The candle burns evenly, the scent throw is good but it is not very strong which in my opinion is a positive point as it may be sickly if the scent was stronger. 

Overall, I think the candle is well priced, cute and the scent is perfect if you love fruity, fresh, summery scents. Although I adore christmasy/spicy/musky candles, I also like this sweet scent which reminds me of happy summer memories! I definitely have my eye on the new Country Candle Company winter collection, which sounds heavenly. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
