Savonnerie fig and wild berry candle

We've all heard of Yankee candles and NEOM and if you're in the states, Bath and Bodyworks. Well move over big wigs, there's a new player in town!

Savonnerie of London make a range of skincare products and candles - they were founded in 1997 and proudly don't have any sulphates, parabens and petrochemicals in their products.  Apart from a beautiful range of bathing products, I was really intrigued by their candles.  If you've ever been to my house, you'll know I'm a teeny bit obsessed with candles, and tea light holders (esp if they're the ones covered with smashed mirrored glass - I love those!).

The fig & wild berries one really appealed to me 1. because of the colour and 2. big fan of fig, and wild berries! If that's not your thing there are 7 other scents to whet your appetite, the 'Christmas pudding' one sounding pretty much the most appealing - NOM!

The scent isn't too overpowering, but gently scents the room.  The burn time is pretty decent too, so far I've been burning mine for about 8-10 hours and I'm about a third of the way through it, so I'll probably get about 25-30 hours out of it which is really good considering it's not a 3 wick candle.

All their ingredients are sustainably sourced and the packaging is just beautiful, very simple and elegant.  These would make such a lovely present for someone who loves beautiful candles, or as a special treat for yourself.

If you're interested in picking one of these up, you can get them on the Savonnerie website for £17.95* each :)  Delivery was quick and efficient and the candle was well packaged, meaning it arrived in perfect condition :)
