Silent Night – Lily Flame


IMG_4321Lily-Flame – Silent Night

I’m going to switch back to Christmas for moment, that’s ok, isn’t it? Good.

First off, all the way back in 2005 (omg) I headed off to uni and my mum packed the Daisy Dip candle into my bag as a goodbye treat. I’ve been a big fan of Lily-Flame ever since because they look pretty, smell wonderful and last for ages. Have you tried Lily-Flame candles? If not, you really must pop into John Lewis and give them a sniff.

Anyway, back to the point of the post. During the Christmas break I picked up this Lily Flame candle in the John Lewis sale. I stopped myself from going straight for a spicy scent and went with this sweet herb candle. I’m probably the only person to describe it as this but I’ll try to explain myself a little better.

At first the scent is very sweet but once lit it has a slight tang to it. I always think of fennel bulbs when I burn it – which I love. The scent isn’t too overpowering but still noticeable when you enter the room.

Lily Flame candles come in tins which I find really handy. They feel much safer and you can easily pop the lid on and store it away, if needed.
