Petits Rituals Candle + Wax Melts
Petits Rituals Candle + Wax Melts
As the evenings become darker, the leaves are falling from the trees and winter is approaching, all I want to do is have a bubbly bath and snuggle up with a book and have a candle burning! Candles, to me, instantly make a room feel so much more cosy, homely and inviting, especially at this time of the year. So I couldn't wait to use these lovely smelling products from Petits Rituals. 

I chose the *Petits Rituals 'by the fire' Candle (£35, 200g) which is an infusion of cinnamon, clove, orange and lemongrass, basically christmas in a candle! The candle contains soya wax and beeswax and it has an approximate burn time of 40 hours. The packaging is just gorgeous, so intricate and colourful and it is quite weighty too so it would make a lovely aesthetically gorgeous gift.

The candle is quite large and it only has one wick which did concern me at first as it could lead to the dreaded tunnelling and wasted wax at the edges of the candle. Tunnelling did happen but it was my fault as I couldn't leave it for as long as it needed to before extinguishing the candle but I think if you look after it then you won't get any product waste as I did. 

The scent is heavenly and so perfect for this time of the year as it is spicy, warming and christmasy to me - it is such a welcome sight and smell on a cold, rainy autumn day. The scent throw is very good as it fills most of the top floor of the house but it isn't headache inducing or overpowering at all. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

I also received the *Petits Rituals Orange Gourmande Wax Melts (£10 for two wax melts). The melts are shaped like flowers which is such a pretty detail and they come in a cute handmade drawstring bag so they would instantly make lovely presents. The scent, to me, is a mixture of strong orange flavours and floral notes as well as orange boiled sweets - I love it! It's fruity but not in a cloying or sickly sweet way as it is fresh, sharp and authentic. The wax melt is used in a tea light warmer; it melts quickly and I can start to smell the gorgeous fresh orange scent after about ten minutes. The melts are supposed to last for about ten hours and I can definitely see myself getting more of these! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

Overall, I think the packaging design is just gorgeous so it would make a lovely and welcome christmas gift. The candle scent is christmassy and perfect for this time of the year; however my favourite product has to be the wax melts as they smell amazing and are so easy to use.
