Timothy Dunn Arabian Fig Candle* £36.00
This candle oozes sensuality, spice and luxury. Inspired by the largest and wealthiest city of the Middle Ages, Arabian Fig embodies the ancient sophistication and decadence of Constantinople. As your beautiful candle melts, you’ll be intoxicated by the essence of ripe, succulent figs warming in Byzantine courtyards.
Presenting a complex blend of green fig leaf, basil and clove, tenderly enhanced with frankincense; this deliciously aromatic candle has a hint of wild fig and cassis, rose and jasmine, and the rich base notes of sandalwood, cedarwood and musk.

These are seriously luxurious candles, even before I’d taken the candle out of its box I could smell that amazing earthy fig scent. This candle has a whopping 60 hours burn time which is more than any other candle I have owned, I tend to burn it for about 1 – 2 hours then blow it out because the scent is that strong it will still fill your room for hours after its stopped burning.
I adore Fig, I feel like its my signature scent. Its such a rich and complex scent, it reminds me of living in Cyprus and thats why I associate Fig with warm Summer days rather than Winter nights. This Arabain Fig Candle smells incredible and as you would expect from a luxury candle brand the scent is strong and intense it really scents the house not just a room. My husband really likes this candle too, he isn’t a fan of sweet scents or anything overly floral so this is perfect, the musky, woody notes really come through too and make it quite a masculine scent so he likes to burn this at night when we’re watching TV or eating dinner.
The candle arrives in a simple black box with pretty gold details, housed in a sophisticated heavy black glass jar. It looks at home in any room of your house, I’ve been mostly burning it in the living room but have been known to have it on the side of my bath when I feel like having a pamper. The candle burns evenly & cleanly and if you trim the wick before each use there is no sooty deposit which is great. I get so disappointed when candles burn down the middle & you’re left with so much wax around the edge, they’re a waste of money
I know more expensive luxury candles are not for everyone & I’ve only ever treated myself to two (both were Jo Malone) but each time I have one I say to my husband that the scent is just so much more intense and you really do get what you pay for. So if your budget can stretch or if you are able to ask for one for a special occasion I can’t recommend Timothy Dunn Candles enough, the quality, burn time and wonderfully intense scent is more than worth the price tag. I’m using it sparingly but enjoying every minute of it.
My house smells inviting and the beautiful Fig scent transports me back to a warm summers evening in Cyprus, I know my husband is planning on treating me to another one for my Birthday in October (feeling very lucky). Let me know what candles you like to burn & if you prefer sweet / floral or musky scents. Timothy Dunn has wonderful selection of candles and I’m sure you will find something to suit your taste.
