Jo Malone, Diptique and Molton Brown candles may provide a sophisticated scent and act as an elegant mantlepiece ornament, but sometimes you just want something a little more affordable and fun. Kiss Air candles are a 100% handmade British brand that offer hardworking home fragrances with a little sprinkle of something special to set them apart. Although you can choose from a selection of ‘standard’ scents (that includes almond, coconut, blueberry, lavender and vanilla,) it’s the five piece ‘ice cream parlour‘ collection that’s left my mouth watering. Including mango sorbet, mint choc chip, rum and raisin, salted caramel and black cherry, the candles smell good enough to eat; even before lighting them up they filled my room with a sweet fragrance that’s totally sunshine appropriate. The natural soyabean wax ensures a premium burn without the price tag, providing up to thirty hours of enjoyable sweet scents that are perfect for the BBQ season.
Although the tins aren’t particularly glamorous and the labels a little bit rough around the edges, it only adds to the quirkiness of the brand and illustrates that every individual candle is made with love; I’m a firm believer that we should support small and unique businesses and this is the perfect opportunity to do just that. These scents are just delicious: mango sorbet is fruity and delightfully sweet without being sickly, mint choc chip is just the right side of chocolately, while rum and raisin offers up a hint of vanilla alongside the fragrance we know and love so well. They don’t fill a room with an overtly sweet fragrance that makes you feel like you’re in an ice cream factory, just provide a subtle hint of something that’s naturally associated with summer. At £8.50 each, they’re a fab buy ahead of a summer party – or if you just have a think for ice cream!
