Who doesn’t love a good candle?
I know I’m always on the look out for new smells and designs to add to my collection. Whilst wandering around the Manchester Christmas Markets I come across a little stall that sold some lovely artisan candles.
The Naked Candle Co is a small batch handmade candle company based in Manchester. All candles are hand poured with soy wax and come in a selection of subtle yet powerful fragrances.
I got two of the original signature candles, which have a burn time of over 45 hours each. I decided to get one of the Tobacco candles and one of the Black Raspberry & Vanilla. Two very different scents!
The Tobacco is very mature. It has a muskiness to it that is reminiscent of visiting my grandparents. The top notes of tobacco leaf are blended with spicy notes of leather, cocoa and vanilla to create this warm fragrance that is perfect for a night by the fire!
The Black Raspberry & Vanilla has a classic floral smell. It’s sweeter than what I’m used to, but I can tolerate it! As well as the smell of raspberry, it’s blended with sandal, jasmine and vanilla, which give it a more traditional ‘candle’ smell.
These candles are a steal! For the original 14oz. jar, they’re only £10! I would definitely recommend visiting the stall at the Manchester Christmas markets. If you can’t get there, check out the website. They do come in a smaller size too, which I think would make perfect little stocking fillers! I’ll certainly be repurchasing.
Until next time,
