I’ve mostly stayed away from anything beauty related over the holidays but these caught my eye when I walked through my local M&S. I’m glad I stopped for them because they’re absolutely lovely. I know M&S candles of old – you don’t get anything like the throw from something like, say, Diptyque, but they’re perfectly fine for small rooms and a lighter touch on room fragrancing. And, they’re £6 compared to Diptyque’s £45. So, buying a couple and getting more of a blast seems reasonable. The Mandarin candle is a blend of citrus and spearmint – totally delicious and sweet-fresh, and the Rhubarb variant is very rhubarby alth9ugh I had no idea there was any such thing as a rhubarb flower. There is – I’ve Googled – but apparently it’s not a desirable thing for rhubarb growers because they occur when the rhubarb has gone to seed. Don’t say you never learn anything here.
The fragrance that I loved best, however, was the Coconut Blossom – if you need a quick blast of summer holidays or something just to make you smile, this is the one. I’m kicking myself for not buying the room spray because at £4 it’s something I can easily see myself spritzing about just for that momentary olfactory hit without caring much about longevity or quality. They’re not fine fragrances and they won’t stand tall under any kind of expert fragrance critique but oh, they’re exactly right to lift away any gloom. You can find the range HERE.
