I came into contact with Sarah from Mils & Boo on twitter and she kindly offered to send me one of her handmade soy candles to review. I had a tough decision to decide which fragrance I would like though! I was very tempted by Amber & Lavender or English Pear & Freesia then I saw she sold Black Pomegranate and I was intrigued by what that might smell like but when I saw that she makes a Sunwashed Linen candle I just knew that had to be the one for me to road-test. Nothing beats the smell of fresh linen on a Summers Day! Well apart from the sight of the laundry fairy taking it off the line and folding it up and putting it all away for you! 🙂
The candle I received came in a metal tin with Mils & Boo branding on it. It has a real luxury feel to it and it is £9.00 to buy the 200g candle tin from the Mils & Boo website. However it looks like it is worth much more than that! Plus ….if you use discount code TWITTER you will get 10% off!!! (There is no expiry date on this code as of yet so please go ahead and use it and share the code with friends and family)
Now I shall mention the fragrance of my new candle….it is divine! It is quite a strong fragrance (which I like!) but not too overpowering. It smells EXACTLY like linen hanging out on the line on a sunny day and when you smell the fragrance it conjures up images of the sun shining, the washing being outside and life being good and happy! It is a cheerful , rejuvenating scent that I think most people would love to have burning in their home. It is a real summery scent and perfect for this time of year.
The Sunshwashed Linen candle can be bought in 3 different sizes. There is a 100g candle tin, a 200g candle tin and a 300g glass candle jar (which comes gift boxed). Any size of this candle would make an amazing gift. Everyone loves a posh candle to burn in their home and as there are so many fragrances to choose from I am sure you will be able to find the perfect scent.
The candles that Mils & Boo make are made from pure soy wax, which is produced from 100% natural sustainable resources that are free of fossilised hydrocarbons. Soy wax candles are known to burn cleaner and they can produce as much as 90% less soot than a paraffin candle. One of my favourite things about soy candles is that any spilt wax can be cleaned up with soap and water!
