I love candles. In my room right now I think I have about eight located in different positions, as well as another four in my living room. There’s something about lighting a candle and sitting by candlelight that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. One of my fave candles is by Miller Harris so I was very happy to hear that they’re launching a whole new range of limited edition candles for the home next week. There’s a giant version of their regular candle with two wicks, a stylish pillar candle and even some candle sticks if you’re a classic candle lover at heart.
Large Candle in Bois Figuier – £65 for 615g
A heart of pulpy fruit is followed by santal, cedar and tree moss with top notes of rosemary, cypress and Sicilian lemon to add a twist of the Mediterranean.
Pillar Candle in Bois Sauvage – £55 for 2kg
This beautifully proportioned statement candle is scented with Bois Sauvage, a scent that evokes the heat, vegetation and terrain of the garrigue with fresh and aromatic notes of Italian bergamot, Tunisian rosemary and thyme absolute from France. The candle is completed with a black cameo seal stamped with the pom flower design, creating a beautiful contrast with the warm grey wax of the candle.
Dinner Candles in Bois Fumé – £30 for 6 x 7”
These elegant candles have been dipped with a light wash of fragrance so that they impart a subtle hint of fragrance that will not distract the palette if used at the dinner table. Scented in Bois Fumé, they create an immediate impression of smoky birch and black tobacco, which then reveals an undertone of nutmeg and cumin. The base is cedar, vetiver and santal.
These all sound utterly amazing and I can’t wait to light one up myself. The scent is beautiful so you can’t go wrong if you want to buy any one of these as a gift for a loved one or even as a treat to yourself (and your living room) All these candles will be available from next week in the Miller Harris boutique and online.
