I love Candles, always have and always will. I think it steams from those cold, dark, rainy British Winter nights when I would come home from work, put on my comfys, pour myself a hot cup of tea, or most likely a glass of red, and snuggle up by the fire with a couple of candles aglow. They just make me feel warm, cosy and toasty especially when its cold outside, not to mention the beautiful scents that surround the room. One of my favourite candles has always been this New York scent from Next which is part of their Fragrance Luxury Candles Collection, this candle has been frequently burning in our house year round for a number of years and I just adore it.
The Fragrance Luxury Candle Line have recently been repackaged to a delightful frosted/pattered glass with a black, sturdy lid to give them a slightly more luxurious feel compared to their more simple and clean old packaging style, not to mention you now get more product even if the price has slightly increased. Named after cities across the world, I also enjoy their London scent but the New York one is my favourite candle of all.
Its a combination of some of my favourite scents in one delightfully packaged form. Gardenia, Jasmine, Orange Blossom and Bergamot amongst other scent notes that produce the elegant, warm with a touch of sun kissed fragrance. Once lit the aroma begins to infuse the room and soon leaves my house smelling just heavenly. For me this scent adds a little touch of Summer mixed with a cosy warm aroma for those long Winter nights but equally feels fresh and light enough to burn all year round and with 60 hours burn time I feel this whole range is excellent value for money. Fragranced enough without being overpowering.
The line also includes the scents Amalfi, Antigua, London, Marrakesh, Miami, Milan and cost £12 each from Next Stores or Next Online. I think these candles make ideal Christmas Stocking Fillers for such a wide age range.
