Making me happy right now! The Ashleigh & Burwood Escapology Collection is just lovely – as soon as I opened the boxes I was smiling. I love fragranced candles – I’m a bit on-off with them; you always see a lot around Christmas time and then I go off them a bit (there’s only so much ‘spiced orange’ that any one person can take). But now I know I’m back on them with a vengeance!Ashleigh & Burwood Escapology Collection
I’ve placed the ‘scent’ cards under each one, so the blue palms is Seychelles, and if that’s what the Seychelles smells like, book me a flight today (despite the fact that everyone says it’s packed with ultra-bored honeymooners who have had enough sex and snorkelling and would rather like to do something else instead). Seychelles is a blissful mix of ylang ylang and sweet coconut with a floral middle that lifts it a bit and saves it from being a very obvious ‘holiday’ scent. I suppose there is a bit of a sun cream scent to this which is why it instantly puts you in mind of a brilliant beach escape.Koh Samui
Next, the pink is Koh Samui, which is a bit fresher – neroli and jasmine are predominant (to my nose) with the ylang ylang playing a lesser part, but a sprinkle of orange blossom has me rather addicted! It’s quite a warm, sexy smell (maybe send it to the honeymooners in the Seychelles!) and definitely perfect for sultry summer nights.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
Finally, Madagascan Vanilla, a smoky vanilla scent with a hit of Jasmine that thankfully misses any foodie vanilla connotations. It’s warm and enveloping but exotic at the same time.
If you’re just warming up to a summery mood, I really wouldn’t hesitate with the Ashleigh & Burwood Escapology Collection. You’re not going to get a voluminous power shot of fragrance, but what you do get is a gentle drift that will have you browsing the holiday brochures and wondering if the elastic in your bikini will see you through just one more poolside lie down. They’re £17.99 each HERE.
