Douwe Egberts & Jonathan Ward Candle
Everyone loves the smell of freshly brewed coffee, right? There is nothing right about my day until I’ve picked up a Flat White to sip while I walk the dogs; it’s kind of my treat-to-self for those freezing, miserable, dark February mornings every dog walker dreads. They’re definitely greatly improved by the coffee! So, this collaboration combines two of my favourite things; coffee and heritage. Douwe Egberts began in 1753 in The Netherlands by Egbert Douwes and his wife who sold coffee, tea and tobacco. It was all stored on wooden shelves so the notes in the candle reflect that whole scene of aged timber, spilled beans and bergamot tea infused into a rich, woody coffee fragrance with a cool backdrop that is absolutely delicious. Don’t be thinking that it’s going to smell like your regular latte; it couldn’t be further from that but the familiar coffee note is there.
The Douwe Egbert Jonathan Ward Candle launches on 5th April for £25.
