Jardins d'Eden candle review

There's something about a candle flame flickering gently in a dimly lit room that really sets the scene for a cosy, relaxing, welcoming atmosphere, especially when it's cold, wet and windy outside. I was over the moon to receive a candle to review from Jardins d'Eden, who specialise in what they call "heavenly treats for the urban dweller". I wasn't sure exactly what they meant by this so I went to their website to dig a bit deeper into what the company represents. 

Jardins D'Eden explain : "We are dedicated to creating luxurious natural skin products that transform basic daily routines into pleasurable, deeply enriching heavenly rituals- for both women and men. [...] Renewing centuries-old traditions, Jardins D’EDEN offers 100% natural body, bath and face treats handcrafted in London for discerning urban dwellers. Our products are 100% free from chemicals, 100% natural in constituents, and totally modern and sophisticated in appeal for a healthier, natural and more sustainable lifestyle." Hmm sounds good.

I was sent a Tea Tree, Eucalyptus and Peppermint Aromatherapy candle to review. These are all fragrances that I associate with purifying, antiseptic and head-clearing properties so I was unsurprised to see that the candle claims to cool and refresh your mood. It needs to be burned for 2-4 hours at a time for the aromatherapy to work its magic and I did find it to be a calming scent, perfect for unwinding after a stressful day of work. It's a unisex scent and the perfumes blend together nicely. I usually go for warming, indulgent fragrances like vanilla or cinnamon during the winter months, but this would be a lovely summery fragrance too. It's fresh, woody and slightly medicinal.

The pure white colouring with gold detail looks very luxurious - it reminded me of the sort of thing you'd see in a spa or in a high-end hotel room - so it's great for adding a touch of luxury and understated elegance to your home.

Other fragrances available in the Aromatherapy Candle range are the gorgeous-sounding Lemongrass & Mandarin, Rose & Frankincense, Lavender & Ylang Ylang and Orange & Cinnamon which sounds wonderful and Christmassy.

Each candle has a wax weight of 220g and a burn time of 40-45 hours.
