Why Beautiful Candles Have Never Been Hotter
For the first time since electricity was invented, beautiful candles have become the ultimate household essential. Why? Well, it probably has a lot to do with Hygge, the latest lifestyle trend to be imported from Denmark. Hygge means enjoying life’s simple pleasures – hanging out with friends, spending time with family and getting cosy by candlelight.
Nowadays there’s more to these lovely light-givers than just wick and wax. Many manufacturers are adding essential oils to their candles to help relieve stress and create a calming atmosphere, while others are going all out with mouth-watering fragrances, dried flowers and even glitter thrown in for good measure!
Candle packaging has also come a long way, with luxurious and sophisticated boxes, jars and ceramic pots being almost as appealing as the candles themselves. We just love everything about them!
From sensual, scented candles to simple tea light accessories, everyone’s waxing lyrical about candles right now. That’s why we’ve created a collection of some of the most beautiful candles and candle holders available today.
Magic, mystery, warmth and ambience can all be felt in the presence of a candle. But how can such a simple thing have such a big impact? Well, why not see – or feel – it for yourself! We have a wide selection for you to choose from, so whatever your mood, there’s bound to be a votive to match your motive.
