Unlike other candle brands that seem to justify a whopping price tag, Neom Organics is somewhat underestimated and often passed by. Their ethos is based around ‘harnessing the efficacy and optimising the aromatherapeutic qualities’ of pure essential oils, producing naturally scented organic products that are good for you too. Not only do they look and smell great, but they’re an ethical and socially responsible brand that wants to leave you emotionally content. I’ve been burning one of their ‘Cocooning’ candles on my bedside for sometime, but when Neom asked if I wanted to help celebrate the 1st birthday of their Enchantment candle I just couldn’t say no.
Released as a limited edition scent a year ago,
Enchantment has been so popular that it’s hanging around for good. It’s
described as: “Reminiscent of a stolen morning walk in an ancient
bluebell wood. Wild, unknown and breathtakingly beautiful.” The delicate
fragrance combines the soft scent of bluebell with sweet guaiacwood and
rose, creating a sunny scent that helps you to feel renewed and
uplifted. Bluebells remind me of childhood trips to the woods, so this
is an extremely comforting and smile-inducing candle that adds a touch
of elegance to your home.
The glass holder is tinted white and comes with a wooden cover, ensuring it looks great placed on a side table or fireplace. The tinted glass helps to cover up any messy wax lines that are often visible on transparent pots, while the wooden cover adds an elegant touch that also hides any unsightly burnt wicks. I love the fact it contains three wicks too, ensuring there’s a significant amount of light emitted and that all the wax is thoroughly used. After you’ve burned the candle you’re even left with an elegant storage unit that can be used for hair pins, as a desk tidy or even re-used by placing little wax tarts in the base. (To remove the last little bits of wax, just pop it in the freezer overnight and the bottom will pop out easily into the bin.)
Considering other brands charge upwards of £100 for something similar, this is a great buy for those of you wanting to add a touch of elegance and great scent simultaneously to your home. It burns for around 50 hours (30% longer than standard premium candles,) plus Neom will donate £1 from every sale to the Woodland Trust. Just make sure you burn the candle for a minimum of two hours at a time to ensure it remains at its best performance, as well as having a look at my top tips for candle maintenance!
The Enchantment candle is available online and via John Lewis priced £42.00.
