I promised myself that I'd hold off on featuring candles for a little while but that was until I was introduced to Woodwick Candles. I know what you are thinking- "Doesn't this girl own enough candles?", yes, yes I do but trust me when I say that there is something special about Woodwick Candles.
I was kindly gifted two Woodwick Candles from TwoFiveFive and have had the Applewood Fragrance flickering away since they arrived. Woodwick Applewood is a slightly spicy apple blend that manages to be both uplifting and comforting in one. Everyone who has set foot in my house within the last few days has complimented the scent which rarely happens. I also have Woodwick Fireside which is a deep, slightly smoky and dare I say it masculine blend of amber, vetiver and musk - if ever there was a scent to burn in the evening it this.
Ignore the fragrances for a moment and let us focus on the packaging - sleek, grown up, contemporary yet classic at the same time. It doesn't matter what your home décor style happens to be a Woodwick Candle will happily blend in with its surroundings or should you wish become a focal point. Oh but it gets better each Woodwick Candle features a solid wood wick (hence the name), which crackles, flickers and somewhat dances with embers when lit. It really is a sight and noise to behold, it almost sounds like a real roaring fire. Personally I like to curl up in bed with a book, light the candle and listen to the wick crackling in the background. It is oddly soothing and comforting - not to mention the fragrance is nothing short of wonderful.
The good news is that a medium Woodwick Candle which is almost on par with a large Yankee Candle costs just £16.99 and will burn evenly (no tunnelling) for up to 60 hours. If you fancy trying one out for yourself, I have teamed up with TwoFiveFive to offer all my UK readers free shipping with the code "sundaygirlfree" which is valid until 10/03/15.
