The newest candle from La Montana (my favourite is the coffee-brandy-tobacco merge of Alfredo’s Cafe) is Sacred Roses. I will say from the start that this is a lightly fragranced candle – it’s not supposed to be a full blown rose scent that powers through your house, but more of a nuance of rose to be a quiet companion, not a shouty friend!
I’ve had this on the burn for about 3 hours – it’s barely made a dent in the candle I should say – and my kitchen is subtly infused with rose. I’m going to say it’s a greenish rose scent, because of the accompanying notes of chamomile and narcissus, and the inspiration, a 13th century monestary with a flourishing rose garden, doesn’t emerge to my nose as the dark cloisters as stated but more of stone in cold sunshine. Let’s say happy monks, not hidden monks!
I find it a pretty scent that I can live in harmony with. If you don’t know the La Montana story, the brand is made by Cass and Jonathan Hall who use their remote Valencian home as inspiration for scents. I’m rarely in Spain and not sitting by the sea or a pool so it’s interesting to see how their rural, inland environment translates to fragrance.
Anyway, I have a nice offer for BBB readers from La Montana Candles (try Alfredo’s Cafe). You can claim £10 off the £35 price using code BBB VIP. Postage is free in the UK, but if you want to make more than one order, just because of the website mechanics, and claim the code on more than one candle, you’ll need to do each order separately. You can find the La Montana candles HERE.
