The Dreamiest Candle Find

In winter time, when the nights are dark and chilly, there’s nothing I like better than to snuggle up on the sofa and light a cosy candle that fills the room with warmth and a delicious fragrance. As soon as I light one, I feel cool and calm and just that little bit more grown-up.

My latest candle obsession comes in the form of Anthropologie’s Illume Boulangerie Jar Candles, in the fragrance Angel Food. It has such a luxurious, enveloping scent that I just can’t get enough of – even when it’s not burning, I find myself wandering over to the jar to give it a sniff and breathe in that delicious smell.

Angel Food is described as ‘sweet vanilla, butter and caramel’, which sounds sickly I know, but it’s a far warmer, richer scent than it is sweet. It has divine depth and a buttery warmth that I really love, it’s a truly decadent infusion of fragrances. I don’t especially like anything too sweet or synthetic in my candles, and this is neither.

The other main aspect that I love about this candle is the presentation; the porcelain jar features a pretty Parisian-inspired design stamp, and I know I’ll be using this for storage long after the candle has burned down.

If you’re looking for a little treat to pep up these last grey days of January, I’d highly recommend the Angel Food Illume Boulangerie Jar candle – I’ll see you at Anthropologie!
