It’s the little things in life that please me and lighting a candle is one of them. What is it that women love about candles? Is it the soft, sensuous glow? The lingering scent of warmth? The ability it has to dress and complete a room?
One of my most loved brands is Circa Home, an Australian brand that focuses on creating the most divine of soy candles and natural room fragrances. Circa Home only use natural ingredients in their luscious items, the bases are made from non-toxic waxes and the dreamy scents come only from high quality ingredients.
Each candle has an inspiration behind the creation, a little story of its own. The glass jars are a touch of sophistication and oh-so-chic, perfect for an addition of luxury in your home or office.
As I type, I have the Circa Home Vanilla Bean and Allspice Candle gently flickering away, emitting a lovely fragrance of vanilla, sandalwood, bergamot and patchouli. It’s not overpowering which is important to note, strong smells often leave me head-achy and this does not.
The burn time for the classic candles are a generous 45 hours and the lid it comes with can be used as a stand or as a snuffer. As with all candles, it’s essential to keep the wick trimmed for a long-lasting and healthy candle.
