Review: Lavender & Neroli Candle

Hi guys! So as you'll probably know from my blog post a few days ago, I went to a meetup in Bristol to meet some other lovely bloggers last weekend, and if you recall, they had the most uh-mazing goodie bags!!! One of the things in the bag was this lovely candle, I've been using it over the last week so thought I'd share my thoughts on it with you :)

They say "A refreshing citrus spiced and blended with aromatic wild lavender. Enjoy this travel tin anywhere you go. Easy to pack you can feel at home when you're travelling with your favourite fragrances."

One thing I really like about Shearer Candles is that once they've settled on a scent, they make it available in lots of different forms, so with this candle, you can also buy (in that scent) Pillar candles, tea lights, scented diffuser,  as well as lots of different styled candle's (one is in a purple jar - that's my fav!) :)

My Thoughts

The first thing you're bound to notice about this is the really pretty scent - it's what I like about it most - strange for a candle non? :p  You should get about 20 - 22 hours of burn time out of it, which is really good considering it's small.  When you light it, after a little while, maybe half an hour, you'll start smelling the scent around your house, but it's a much more delicate scent than what you smell when you open it and take a whiff :)  You'll have to keep your eyes peeled for it in the background of my YouTube videos as it's home is on my little candle table in the corner of my lounge :)

Where you can buy it: On the Shearer Candles website
Cost: £4
Would I repurchase: Yes - although, as much as I love this scent, I'd like to experiment and try some of their other scents too :)
