I wanted to try Spry Candles because they have a £7 ‘starter’ candle which not many other brands do. We all secretly know that scented candles are an absolute decadence but if you’re being asked to cough up £50+++ without really knowing what you’re getting, it’s quite a leap of faith. I asked to try the £7 offerings from Spry rather than larger sizes and I’m happy to say that they’re really rather lovely.
I have Persian Rose on the burn currently which is sweetly rosy (obviously!) and a mid-point between mild and fulsome. I was, with no disrespect to Spry, expecting a bit of a non-scent which is often a lower priced candle fault, but not at all. There is enough that I know it’s there but not so much that I hit a rose wall when I go in the kitchen!
I like the little pail options as well – very sweet for a summer garden (also, note the use of the world ‘pail’ sounding a million times nicer than a bucket! I was all ready to use bucket…). The main picture is Shade of Noir – pomegranates with down-notes of violet and plum. The pails are £12 and larger candle sizes go up to £39. I wish more brands did ‘starter’ sizes so that you aren’t taking pot luck quite so much. Spry is HERE.
