There are two things to say virtually straightaway about the New Forest Aromatics Gift Set – The candles smell absolutely gorgeous and the set is so cheap! The Gift Set looks like it should have cost significantly more than the £10 I paid for it. Yup – just £10! I reckon the perceived value is more around the £20+ mark.
The candles in the New Forest Aromatics Candle Gift Set are Lavender and Herb Garden and they couldn’t be more realistic if they tried. The scent is very natural and not at all cloying or overpowering. The lavender scent lingers long after the candle has been put out. My living room still smelled lovely and ‘lavendery’ 24 hours later so I’m well chuffed with the candles.
The candle set came from a website called Vinnie & D which specialises in selling products designed and made in Great Britain. Viniie & D is a lovely site which kind of houses lots of different ‘smaller’ designers who sell slightly unusual creative pieces for you and the home. There were so many things I wanted to buy when I was browsing and what started off as a quick look for a birthday present for a family member, ended up in a marathon session!
I’ve got to say that even though I intended the set as a birthday gift, I was so taken by the candles when they arrived that I just had to pinch them for myself! Well why shouldn’t I treat myself now and again eh?
