Plum & Ashby Candles
Christmas time for us is all about shutting the curtains, getting cosy at home with the kids and lighting candles. Advent candles are a great item to have in the house if you are trying to cut back on the chocolate calendars.
Luxury brand Plum & Ashby have send us their take on the advent candle. Housed in a brown glass holder, which omits a beautiful warming glow as the candle burns down. A lot of advent candles have the numbers listed, which you burn down as each day passes. I have to say I do enjoy those candles the most. P&A's candle has a label with 1-24 listed that you strike through after each day. It definitely does encourage you to actually use the candle rather than keeping it for a special occasion.
The advent candle is scented with spiced orange and red berry. It has a lovely citrus scent but with a hint of fresh laundry. It's a real 'show home' kind of scent that you know everyone will ask about as they walk through the door.
We also have Plum & Ashby's Cinnamon and clove candle, which is much more of a smoky scented candle. Infused with orange, ginger and black pepper it has a fresh but spicy scent. It reminds us of the scent of a traditional barbers where they splash on a spicy cologne after shaving. There is also a leathery, musky undertone. It's more of an intense warming scent than the advent candle, but definitely one I'll be burning on the cold winter evenings.
The packaging is a beautiful navy blue gloss with festive gold lettering.
Both candles are natural wax with a cotton wick which are hand poured in England. Burn each candle for at least two hours each to ensure they burn evenly throughout.
The scent from these is strong and they linger in the air for hours. A must have candle this winter.
The Advent candle is £26.50 and the cinnamon candle is £32.00.
