Unable to travel to places you want to? Well, the lovely people at Ashleigh & Burwood have this covered. Their new range - Escapology - is inspired by some of the globe’s most captivating destinations. Created with naturally sourced ingredients from around the world, they are designed to take you on a journey, bringing paradise home.
So, let’s see if they did…
As a serial candle hoarder, I was slightly apprehensive to branch away from the comfort of my trusty yankee candle. I can tell you now, it was the best decision I made.
Firstly, my problem with the vast array of candles out there is that they often claim to smell of something that in reality doesn’t smell. Let’s be honest, we’ve all picked up a candle labelled ‘summer glow’ or ‘ocean breeze’ followed by the words ‘oh yes, I can smell that’. When we can’t. That’s where Ashleigh and Burwood have nailed it. No fancy title needed. Simple - I opted for the Koh Samui luxury scented candle (£17.99). It does exactly what it says on the box: scented it definitely is! The most fragrant scent is that of Jasmine, with elements of Ylang Ylang and orange sneaking in afterwards. The aromas evoke the tranquil and carefree surroundings of a Thai spa, whilst delving into traditional Thai remedies of Koh Samui.
For me this is the perfect bathroom candle, whisking you away to Thailand every bath time - I mean, what more could you want? Well, it not only burns easily and evenly with no messy wax, it also has a burn time of up to 40 hours, that's a lot of me time!
