Candles are my weakness, I have them dotted around the house. From tea-lights to pillar candles to wax melts and scented candles, I love all of them.
As much as I enjoy lighting my Yankee Candle products there are candles I love even more. Independent businesses which go that extra mile to ensure you have a lovingly made product trumps mass produced products in my opinion.
Amber Eve is an independent candle company which creates the most gorgeous luxury slow burning candles. The candles are hand poured in the company's London studio and are made from soy wax.
I have been testing out a Cassis and Fig as well as a Lime Basil and Mandarin scented candles.
First of all the simplicity of the candles and the packaging oozes luxury and sophistication. From the labels and pink crepe paper to the glass tumblers and ribbon bow on the box, these candles are the perfect package.
The glass tumblers and white candle wax look chic on my mantelpiece. Sometimes less really is more.
The scent of the candles was so intense that it wafted through the box. Once lit the scents for both candles didn't take long to fill the living room. Strong and powerful but not headache inducing.
There are several candle lines within Amber Eve including Lucky Seven, The Dark Side and Travel Buddies.
Within each line there are different sizes which have different burn times some of the scents across several ranges include Clean Cotton, Sandalwood and Black Pepper and English Rose.
Lucky Seven candles have 40 hours of burn time and come in a 165g jar and cost £17. There are also larger candles which cost £22.50. The Dark Side candles cost £17 and have 55 hours burning time and come in a 220g tumbler. Travel Buddies, which the name suggests, are dinky candles to take with you on the go and cost £5. You can also get a set of three candles in the Travel Buddy line.
Amber Eve also sell Thinking Candles which each have a positive quote on the glass jar. Messages including Happy is the Place to be, Keep Calm and be Fabulous and Believe and you are Halfway there.
If you haven't tried any candles from Amber Eve check them out, they would make great gifts for someone as well as a cheeky present for yourself.
