Over the past few days, it feels like Scotland has gone screeching into autumn and winter. Gone are balmy evenings and golden sunshine, instead they’ve been replaced with lashing wind and rain. It’s a bit grim, so I’ve been trying to make the house feel as calm and as cosy as possible. Since I’m lucky enough to work from home, I’ve been burning Illume’s Boulangerie Lemon Poppyseed Candle in the office each day as I get down to work.
Packaged in the brand’s signature china pots, these are candles which smell as good as they look. Inspired by the fabulous bakeries of France, the Boulangerie range make some of the most deliciously edible scents you can imagine. Lemon Poppyseed is perfect if you’re after a soft, warming scent to see you through the autumn. Like all Illume candles, it’s made with soy wax and natural fragrance – so there is no smut or soot when burning, and the room smells incredible for hours afterwards. I’ve already got my eye on a few other scents (pumpkin shuffle or Espresso if you’re wondering) which should see me through the seasons!
Illume Boulangerie Candles are priced at £18 and are available here
