You know when you find something that just makes you want to jump for joy? The Wild Things collection from Ashleigh & Burwood totally ticks that box with their vivid, colour-hit candles. Toucan Play That Game is one of three new candles from the brand (I’ll post on the others later on) that are highly ornamental and quirky. I still have my Pinemingos (pine cones and flamingos!) in my bathroom and Monarch of the Forest (handsome stag with robin) in my front room and the throw is so good.
It’s really about time someone stormed the candle market with something other than clear glass with a white candle inside and a paper label. A few years ago, you could hardly find a fragranced candle that was anything other than nondescript in appearance – I think it was because scented candles were supposed to be discreet and unobtrusive and I see the place for things that don’t intrude visually. But, I also see a place for something that does more than flicker tidily in the corner of your living room. In terms of fragrance, this is decidedly fruity – mango, guava and mandarin (a bit of coconut wouldn’t have gone amiss) and with experience of this brand, I know the throw is good because they’re not skimpy on ingredients. Burn time is about 55 hours but you don’t need to burn for long before your room is decently fragranced. They’re £38 HERE.

Hi Jane, what is the pot made of? I have a thing for toucans so would buy it for the pot alone! I’ve given up on candles after burning Yankee candles created loads of soot staining above my mantlepiece and on my living room ceiling.
