Popular options include, "Sea Mist", "Lemongrass", "Amber and Orchid", "Vanilla Caramel", "Wild Peonies and Lily" and "Saffron and Rose".

Customers were impressed with how much the smell of these scented candles filled their homes whilst they were burning. Their triple-scented soy formula seems to work wonders for masking odours and creating a calming and homely atmosphere.

Lovely scent. Not too overpowering, not too weak, just right.
