I used to be big on candles, literally the bigger and tackier looking the better but then I got older and hated the way most of them smelled after burning (more toxic than pretty), the way they burned unevenly and how they looked really messy after four or five uses.
Then I used Harpers Candles and fell in love with candles all over again. Here are the reasons at a glance…
- They are made of soy which isn’t harmful to breath like paraffin is. It carries fragrance very well and doesn’t cover everything in soot.
- They use top grade fragrance oils which create an atmosphere and eliminate odours.
- They are completely cruelty free and are approved by The Vegan Society.
- The packaging is recyclable or upcyclable (if little pots are your thing) and the labels are already made from recycled paper.
The Great British Summer Kind arrived in one of my The Vegan Kind sub boxes (the foods in them obviously dairy free and usually gluten free so perfect for me) and I adored the scent of it so much I don’t want to use it up. I just open it every morning to smell before I get out of bed because the scent – similar to limes and freshly cut grass – is so uplifting!
Little Black Cat is a candle designed for Autumn and Winter and is said to include rich, dark berry scents. Now, maybe I’ve gotten so used to REALLY rich berry scents in my perfumes this candle just reminded me of very sweet strawberries and raspberries instead. Very girly but not particularly comforting on a dark chilly day. I think for A/W I would prefer Dirty Crow which is similar to winter berries and mulled wine or Pandora which is more woody.
Oh did I mention they make a Salted Caramel scented candle? O.O
