Diptyque and Yankee maybe blogger's high end and high street candle favourites but mine is undoubtedly Timothy Dunn. He started off as a florist initially in the UK which makes me love his range even more as he knows about his scents quite well. I don't know why but I have sniffed and analysed the above mentioned, much raved about candle brands but somehow just haven't been as impressed.
If I want to indulge in a luxury candle, it will only be Timothy Dunn that I'll spend my cash after. It's worth every single penny in my opinion. Everything from it's leather like cardboard box to it's glossy, heavy glass container that's always stained in the most beautiful colour always manages to take my breath away. The packaging is simple, chic and sophisticated.
You can immediately tell they don't compromise on quality as I seriously can burn their candle for hours and have so in the past year (not this one but Arabian Fig) and simply never seem to hit bottom. There must be something magical about it's longevity. Well, I am not complaining.
As for the scent, simply leave the candle unlit and you'll still be able to breathe in the sumptuous aroma. This particular one would make a gorgeous Mother's Day present, something everyone will be blown away by. Taking inspiration from India, Dubai and Bahrian - the scent is a predominant reminder of the middle east. With notes of saffron, oud, spicy fruit teas and much more, it's mainly warm and woody - not heady or overtly strong at all.
A clever blend of ingredients have insured it stays refreshing at the same time, making it the perfect contender to light on long summer evenings. If luxurious candles are your thing, these ones last forever and look absolutely impressive.
