The Cotswold Candle Co


The quickest and easiest pick me up just has to be the scent of a quality candle, it also helps if it looks lovely too.  Fortunately for me, the candle I was recently sent to review by the Cotswold Candle Co ticked both those boxes and some !


The Cotswold Candle Co is owned by Polly who, like me, has a slight obsession with candles.  Finding the cost of her favourite luxury brand candles too high to continually buy, Polly set out to to make her own.  Polly wanted a quality product with an amazing scent but at an affordable price,  I certainly think she has achieved that.   You can read Polly's story HERE



I chose the Sweet Pea fragrance and not just because the label colour fits in with my decor !  Sweet peas are one of my most favourite flowers so I was interested to see if Polly had captured the unique scent.  The Cotswold Candle Co consists of a small range of classic scents Sweet Pea, White Mulberry (yep, nearly picked this one ) Rose and Cinnamon, Orange & Clove.  The candles have a burn time of 35 hours and cost just £18 each which is fantastic value for money for a hand poured candle.


The candle arrived beautifully packaged.  I do love a bit of quality packaging, I have bags and boxes stashed away in my home that I just can't bring myself to throw away, its all part of the experience.  The candle is presented in a lovely glass votive and  I particularly love the wooden wick.   The sound of the wick as the candle burns is lovely, it crackles away like  the sound of a tiny log fire !


As for the scent ! Ahh memories of beautiful old fashioned English gardens.  The scent of Sweet Peas fills my home.  So much so, the boys came down from their bedroom (unheard of on a Saturday) "whats that smell "  "It smells like a girly garden "

My job here is done !

  2. Scented candles are one of the things I always love at home. I've even taken some with me on holiday before to make whichever place I'm staying in smell nice - though that might be taking things to extreme. I'm sure sweet pea smells lovely. x

  4. I'm a bad candle owner. Whenever I get a really posh one, I save it for best, which never comes and then it sits unused in its box. Kind of defeats the object really... I should treat myself more often to some "girly garden" smells. Especially in my home office (where the cat litter box is) xx
