The Dandelion Clock pattern by Sanderson is contemporary vintage completely summed up. It’s as relevant now as it was in the 1950s when it was first produced. Heathcote & Ivory has interpreted the vibrant pattern as a scent which turns out to be rather lovely – and not at all retro. So, you kind of get the best of both worlds with the candle – a new addition to the existing line.
Not only is it a joy to find a candle that doesn’t use plain, clear glass, and has actually put some kind of interior slant on the decoration, but the scent is perfect for spring. It’s a bit of a ‘they say’ but ‘I smell’ situation here because although tea is indicated as a key note, I cannot smell it at all. And as for the fresh watercress… I just wouldn’t be able to pick that out of a police line up never mind a candle! No clue what that might smell like. Instead, it’s a fresh and floral fragrance with the white flower and rose predominating in a lovely, delicate way. I can imagine burning this on a crisp and sunny spring day and it really enhancing the mood of that day.
I also love the fact that it comes in at under £20 (£18 to be exact) – no Jo Malone prices here. The Heathcote & Ivory Dandelion Clock Candle launches on 23rd Feb. It’s a shame this didn’t swing in for Valentine’s day – I’m sure that not everyone wants hearts on everything.
