Ahhh I’ve been so excited to write this post!
I think anyone reading my blog knows that I love candles.
Screw that pretty sure every blogger out there is partial to a candle, and I am definitely no different!
So when I was sent this beautiful candle*, I couldn’t contain my excitement! Not only was I getting a candle but there was a piece of jewellery hidden inside! The actual packaging was so lovely as well, which made opening the candle up even more exciting. The candle comes in a white box with gold swirls and just looks very professional. The clear glass jar is also just as mesmerising, with the gold swirls continuing their theme, making it look very magical.
The company behind the candle are also pretty inspiring, all of their candles are homemade and using natural wax, and reusable jars with cotton wicks. I also liked how they don’t outsource anything: their designs are from a local designer and all of their wax and scents are produced and hand-poured in the UK.
It’s all surrounding three elements:
Light – Lighting your candle and burn it for 10-15 hours, enjoy the scent before your gold pouch is revealed.
Discover – Snuff out the candle, pull your pouch out with tweezers, wipe it down and let it cool down.
Reveal – Unwrap the gold pouch which will reveal your jewellery surprise and share it online using #flauntyourfind and it may get featured on the website!
I thought this idea was amazing, I really liked the fact that there was something to look forward to whilst burning it. It also didn’t hurt that the candle smelled amazing, it was exactly my kind of scent.
The only thing I would say is that the candle burns quite quickly, which depending on whether you’re super eager to get your jewellery surprise may not be a bad thing! I have to admit I was very excited to get my hands on my gift but I would have preferred my candle to last a little bit longer personally. However on the flip side of this, the scent is fairly strong and makes your whole room smell gorgeous.
All of the candles cost £35 and I do think it’s good value for money because there are a lot of candles that cost just as much or even more and that’s not including the piece of jewellery you get!
My jewellery piece was a charm bead, which was very simply designed and actually I will get a lot of use out of because I have a charm bracelet at home that I barely wear. When you purchase a candle, you can choose what jewellery you want out of a ring or a charm bead which is quite good so you will have some idea of what you will receive.
