A new and limited edition home fragrance collection by Durance has just launched and it has been inspired by the markets of the Provence region of France. The scents feature edible notes of fruit, spices and herbs with delicate floral additions. If you enjoy something a little different from the norm this is just what you have been waiting for, with a choice of six new scents there really is something for everyone. I was kindly sent two of the Durance Marche de Provence fragrances to test and here is what I thought.
Durance Marche de Provence Tomato Mint 75g Candle £9
I'm a huge fan of robust and somewhat herbal fragrance, Jo Malone Green Tomato Leaf Candle is an all time favourite of mine and I can vouch that the Durance Marche de Provence Tomato Mint is very similar. What sets this aside is the uplifting and fresh mint note that prevents this scent from being too vegetal in fragrance and adds an almost cleansing aspect. Best described Durance Marche de Provence Tomato Mint is very green, crisp, herb based and of course unusual. The scent throw is wonderful despite the dinky size of the candle. If you have a green fingered friend or family member this would make a wonderful gift, especially with Father's Day just around the corner.
Durance Marche de Provence White Nectarine 180g Candle £14.50
As many know I enjoy Bath and Body Works Candles, namely their Market Peach fragrance. Of course Durance Marche de Provence White Nectarine Candle is not identical given that the two fruits are of course different but it certainly channels the BBW cult favourite. Durance Marche de Provence White Nectarine is a juicy yet never sickly sweet fruity scent, it is very true to life, refreshing and perfect for brightening up any day. I can not recommend it enough and the scent throw is really impressive, just an hour of burning scented my entire home and the good news is that it burns evenly without tunnelling. If you try one fragrance from the Durance Marche de Provence collection let it be this.
