Just because the festive period is over doesn't mean I am anywhere near ready to pack away my collection of candles. Truthfully yes, I am a little tired of spicy and typical Winter-esque fragrances and would rather something a little more refreshing and generally uplifting. In my opinion, there is very few candle collections more beautiful than the Ted Baker Regency candle collection. Each candle is based on various glamorous locations, and as such you can close your eyes and pretend you are somewhere a little more exotic, while regretting eating all the festive left overs...no, just me?
Within the Ted Baker Regency candle collection there are six fragrances to choose from, at £28 each they do not come cheap; for those who have yet to settle on one particular scent, may I gently guide in the direction of the Ted Baker Mini Scented Candle Gift Set. This lovely line up features: three, mini yet well proportioned candles, all of which are inspired by iconic city locations both in terms of packaging and scents. Speaking of the packaging, have you seen anything more divine? Pretty, sculpted porcelain outers, that look like vases to the naked eye and truly come alive with a soft glow once lit. This is a candle collection that you will display with pride.
The three candles within the Ted Baker Regency candle collection are:
London - A gentle mix of Wild Rose and English Leather, this fragrance is inspired by eras past and has a certain familiarity yet is distinctive in its own right. It is a dusky, soft floral that is tinged and somewhat toughed up by a buttery leather note. A great everyday scent that is particularly lovely when combined with an old classic novel and a mug of tea.
Athens - If you enjoy fig fragrances this is the candle you have been waiting for, this scent features notes of olive and fig that manages to be both herbal and fruity, the ideal candle to burn on a long, damp evening to dream of the warm, summer days hopefully on the horizon.
Miami - bright, fruity yet not overly tart, this scent beautifully encapsulates the all too familiar scents of a day spent at the beach, all without the need for typical coconut or sun screen type accents. Beautiful.
If you are in desperate need of a Winter pick me up, this is the collection you deserve.
