I love candles…seriously I love them. Back in the day I was addicted to the very well known brand Yankee Candle, this post isn’t me bashing them. All I will say is if I spend £20 on a candle then I expect my whole house to smell of it, sadly that never happened – yes it would smell delicious in the jar but the moment it was lit the scent fizzled out to nothing. Now let me introduce you to a brand that are not only affordable, smell good enough to eat and are not hazardous to your health – they are a soy candle! The brand is called Harper’s Bizarre Candles – and I am now converted to this brand!
The tin candle I got in my monthly The Vegan Kind box and the two melts I got in my VIP gift bag from the Great Yorkshire Vegan Festival (I paid for everything myself). Sadly I don’t have the melting pot thingy that you need to use the melts (I have added it to this list of Must Buy Next) how ever I do own matches so I could use the candle!
I am not lying when I say this candle smells divine – it makes the whole room and house smell of Raspberry. As soon as I opened the tin I wanted to eat it (not advised). Don’t let it’s small size fool you it’s packed full of scent and it seems to last forever. Another bonus is that it melts evenly, you know how some candles burn only so much then goes down and you have wasted basically half a candle (am I even making sense!?). I can not wait to try out other scents because if they are anything like this one I am going to love it! This size retails for £5.00 but they do have a large candle (which is double this size) that sells for £8.00 each or 3 for £20.00.
As I mentioned earlier I am not able to use these yet – however the scents are making me excited for when I am able to use them. White Jasmine is such a beautiful classic scent, plus who doesn’t love Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream!? You get 6 in each pack so these are going to last me a loooong time! Not that I am complaining. I’m not sure how much these retail for (sorry).
I do have my eye on a couple of new candles… I’m a sucker for a good scent. I love their website especially the FAQ section they are such a fun small British business and I am an advocate for supporting local companies instead of major brands.
Have you tried anything from Harper’s Candles? What’s your favourite scent for a candle? I think mine is either Rose or Gingerbread ooh maybe fresh grass..no the beach……
