I do love a good candle, so I am always on the hunt for new brands to try. Sometimes you just want a break from Yankee, you know? I’d seen Lily Flame candles before the past however wasn’t sure if I wanted to pay the £7/8 a tin if the scent payoff wasn’t worth it. Yes the candles smell absolutely divine in the tin, but what about when lit. Do they live up to my expectations?
Lily Flame candles are the brain child of Jo & Luc from Somerset. 2015 Marks the 21st year in business for the pair. It all started out when Jo created some candles in her kitchen way back in 1994, since then the brand has become wildly known and is sold throughout many stores and online in the UK. Every process of a lily flame candles journey is looked over by Jo and Luc, they are 100% part of the process from idea down to the final product, with a team of 20 to help run the day to day business of Lily Flame. It definitely sounds like this adorable brand will be providing us with beautifully scented candles for years to come!
I spotted this mini trio of Lily Flame Candles in a few shops but ended up purchasing it from Ebay from this seller for a little bit less than the RRP. First things first, I absolutely love the way the candles are presented. It makes them the perfect item to give as a gift to someone. I know my sister would love them! This trio is the ‘Girly Pink’ set, however the seller offers other trios on their shop too (Including a Christmas one – too soon?) The scents included are Blush, Dolly Rocker & Fairy Dust, All very different, yet similar fresh, powdery girly scents!
They are small but if you burn them for an hour at the time they last a relatively long time! The scent really does ‘throw’ well – technical term right there. Seriously. Leaving the rooms in our flat smelling heavenly! Although the scents are rather girly and powdery Tom doesn’t actually mind them which is always a bonus! They also burn really evenly, I hate it when you have a candle and it burns wonky! It just doesn’t look pretty does it!
Having tried this mini trio of candles I will be purchasing some of the larger sized tins or glass candles in the future. Lily flame also have reed diffusers – another product I love to have around the home, they also look really pretty! Or if you wanted you could purchase a room spray for instant scent satisfaction! You can purchase a lot of the range here.
