I’m a firm believer that your choice of scented candle says a lot about you. Luxe Diptyques, Jo Malones and Fornasettis all suggest a person who enjoys the finer, prettier things in life *nods vigorously*.
The fact is, most posh candles last a good age so you don’t really need to replenish. In that way, they’re a little like clothes, accessories, or indeed perfume, more about variety and the sheer delight of having lovely things surrounding you.
Proving my point perfectly is Bella Freud who has just introduced a line of scented candles, daubed with her famous whimsical slogans. Possibly almost better than a ‘Ginsberg is God’ knit in that you can enjoy this every single day – just keep it as a fragrant desk ornament (I certainly will).
The candle is available at Space NK in three varieties at £38 each.
