I absolutely love burning candles. As well as making my home feel nice, they create beautiful light, make the house feel cosy in the evening and definitely give me that sense of hugge. When I’m having a little me time, I like to dim the lights and light my candles and enjoy a little quiet time. I have lot of different fragrances and always light whichever one suits my mood. Recently I was sent a Gin and Tonic candle from Prezzybox and I can’t stop burning it!
Gin and Tonic is not only my favourite treat drink, I also really love the way it smells, so this gin and tonic candle instantly caught my eye as a fragrance I would like to try.
The candle comes boxed in a lovely box with details of Vineyard Candles the company who make the candle. The gin and tonic candle is hand poured in Cornwall and the jar is made from a repurposed wine bottle. I love the presentation of the product and think it would make an amazing gift. The quality of the packaging and the candle itself is absolutely fantastic.
As soon as you open the box, you can smell how gorgeous the candle is. We all really loved the fragrance straight away and when lit the smell really fills the whole house without being too over-powering. It also has quite a natural fresh smell, as opposed to cheaper more synthetic candles I’ve tried.
The mix of English juniper berries and Tuscan lemon, is fresh and relaxing and the candle would be perfect for a ralaxing bath or chilled evening. The packaging is also nice enough that you can keep it out on display.
The candle is made from 100% natural soya wax and has a burning time of 80 hours, meaning you can enjoy it for weeks before it runs out. I prefer soy wax candles for their longer burning time and they are better for the environment.
I popped mine on a vintage plant stand near all my house plants and I think it looks absolutely gorgeous. I also popped it on my coffee table in the evening while I had a nice cup of tea. When the kids are up, I put my candles somewhere higher where they can’t accidentally knock into them.
Prezzybox has a selection of fun scented candles. I always think they make amazing gifts, as almost everyone loves a candle and they’re a great gift for people who are hard to buy for. The lovely packaging and gorgeous scent, make the gin and tonic candle a great one to give to friends. I’m going to buy a couple for my friends as part of their Christmas gifts as I know they’ll love them.
