When I was having a look around the new Arran Aromatics store (and simultaneously falling in love with everything lining the shelves), I was very kindly gifted the most festive of tins.
The exterior of the tin is the complete embodiment of the season – nutcrackers and bells are sprinkled all over it. I’ve already re-filled mine with Christmas cookies for all of our visitors!
Inside, it gets even better, as there are three Arran Aromatics candles tucked inside. The gift box is an absolute dream for people like me, who had never tried the brand’s candles before.
The scents are some of my absolute favourites – the votives are Ultimate Fig and Just Grapefruit, whilst the large, single wick candle is Bergamot and Geranium. Since I love my house feeling all warm and cosy, these candles arrived at the perfect time!
The first of the trio I tried, was the Ultimate Fig votive. The scent is heavenly – it’s a clear, one note fragrance which feels wonderfully luxurious to burn. The fig isn’t too fruity, but instead it just perfumes the room with a subtle fragrance which is just beautiful.
The second votive is the Just Grapefruit scent, and it’s just so fresh, clean and fruity! I burnt mine during the all-too-short hours of sunshine as it’s a really wonderfully uplifting fragrance. I also love how dinky the votives are! They make layering scents incredibly easy, and they look adorable to boot!
The large single wick candle in the trio is Bergamot & Geranium scented, and is absolutely heavenly! The mix of florals creates a fragrance which feels absolutely spa worthy to burn! It’s a really fresh, clean mix of flowers, and it burned cleanly and evenly, scenting my rooms perfectly!
The Light Up The Season set is an absolute winner of a gift! You can find it here for £28.00
