All you have to do is walk around my apartment to realise how obsessed I am with things that make it smell nice. Candles, oil burners and reed diffusers: they’re everywhere! I first discovered The Naked Candle Co. last Christmas and I’ve been a convert ever since. It was actually one of the first products I blogged about! You can check that out here.

The Naked Candle Co. is a Manchester based artisan candle maker, who aim to make quality candles for a reasonable price! I’ve spoken with Simone and Jake a number of times and been kept in the loop whilst they expanded their range. It now includes Reed Diffusers! Is anyone else as excited as I am?

I always have a reed diffuser in the corner of my lounge, just to keep it smelling nice. Most recently I’ve been using a Peppermint one from The White Company, which literally just ran out. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one of the new diffusers from The Naked Candle Co. The scent I’ve got is Lime, Basil & Mandarin. The first thing I wondered was whether it was going to smell like the Jo Malone one and I was delighted when it did! It’s fresh and citrusy and has undertones that are earthy and woody. Definitely a scent that is right up my street!

For the first couple of days, the smell was so noticeable. I would walk into my lounge and wonder why it smelt so nice. I thought that is something that would die down as it does with most diffusers, however, 2 weeks in and the smell is still really fragrant! I’m honestly so impressed with this diffuser and have got a matching candle to keep the smell uniform all over my apartment.

One thing I love about The Naked Candle Co. is that all products are hand produced and eco friendly. None of those nasty toxins, just all-natural fragrance oils. Simone and Jake do everything themselves! They’ve also been working on the packaging lately too, which is lovely. Anything from here would make a great gift.

To get this exact same smell from Jo Malone, it would cost you £58. Over at The Naked Candle Co it’s only £18.50! How great is that? It comes in a bunch of other scents too so there’ll definitely be something to suit every taste. Plus, it’s also great to support local businesses!

You can get your own candles and diffusers, here.
