When it comes to working from home, there are a whole lot of advantages. Blog appointment at noon on a Tuesday? I’m there. My commute consists of walking to the study, and I can work at times which suit me. But perhaps the biggest luxury of them all is the fact that I get to work how I want. I get to choose my computer, my desk, my hours etc, and the effect is that I get to be way more effective. One of these little luxury, is also getting to burn candles as I work away. More often than not, these are fresh citrus or white flower scented, but recently, I’ve fallen in love with Illume’s Boulangerie Candle Jars.
Packaged in the most gorgeous little clay pots, these candles look as wonderful as they smell. I just adore the delicate illustrations on the front – they look gorgeous on my desk – which is a good thing, because each candle burns for hours on end. Made of food-grade ingredients like coconut wax and essential oils, the candles burn completely cleanly. There is no soot or smut, instead, it just scents the whole house with the most glorious scents. Lavender Shortbread is my first, and it’s a wonderfully warm, slightly sweet scent, perfect for brightening up dull days. I’ve got my eye on the full line-up, with scents like Espresso and Sweet Vanilla Cinnamon, you can’t blame me!
Illume Boulangerie Candles are priced at £16 and are available here
