You know when a candle is going to be good when you can smell it from another room when it isn’t even burning but I wouldn’t expect anything less from expert perfumers Miller Harris. If you are familiar with their products then you know just how luxurious they are. Miller Harris are a brand that whilst respecting tradition, they strive to push the boundaries, creating exquisitely crafted fragrances that are innovative yet timeless.
This Christmas they have released a lovely candle gift set which would be a lovely thoughtful gift for anyone that enjoys luxury candles. The packaging is fun, bright and festive it has been designed by fashion designer Matty Bovan. The scent of the candle is not what you would initially expect from a festive release, it is a warm mix of figs, firs and pines. It gives off a rich fruity yet quite fresh festive scent. Fig is as most of you know, my all time favourite scent and I think the addition of the more wintery notes of pine and fir make it much more festive and a lovely candle to burn over the festive period.
Miller Harris have put together a lovely gift set, which makes it an even more special gift. Inside the gift set, you will receive,
- The limited edition Hope & Joy candle, a lovely contrast of Ibizan figs & seasonal pines, the set also comprises a wick trimmer and a box of our le feu matches.
- The wick trimmer is perfectly angled to trim wicks at all heights during the burn of a candle.
- The le feu! matches are the ideal length to light a candle right to the final burn.
- 30 hours burning time.
I’ve been enjoying burning this, the scent really fills the room but isn’t overpowering and the fragrance lingers long after you blow it out. Also if you trim the wick before burning it each time, you will find the wax burns a lot more evenly and cleanly. You get at least 30 hours of burn time from this so it will last you a good amount of time, I tend to burn it for 2 hours at a time in the evening. I would be thrilled to find this gift set under the tree on Christmas morning.
Let me know if you add this to your Christmas list.
