I am not afraid to admit… that I am a self-confessed candle snob.
Non-believers will no doubt shun this notion, but everyone knows that once you’ve experienced Jo Malone and Diptyque that you never go back. I thoroughly stood by this life rule, until I met the lovely Angela Gawor, owner and founder of Lucia Oliver candles. I have to say I'm converted!
Angela started experimenting with fragrances and cooking up candles from her home kitchen as gifts for family and friends five years ago. Today, each one is still lovingly hand made and finished to perfection, wrapped in luxury minimalistic packaging – which, let’s not lie, is as important to us candle snobs as the actual product itself.
At present the range includes five individual scents; Spiced Mandarin, Cinnamon & Myrrh (perfect for those warm festive vibes), Fig, Casis & Sandalwood (a classy all-rounder), Vanilla, Chestnut & Ginger (soft, creamy and great for foodies), Jasmine & Patchouli (delicate, sweet and floral) and finally, our resounding favourite at BuyMyWardrobe HQ – Mint & Goji Berry Tea. We literally can’t stop burning this one and have had so many compliments from shoppers in the boutique. Our office has never smelt so sweet – and we can honestly say they are as good at filling a room as the leading luxury brands (at a snip of the price – win!) They even smell amazing when you’re not burning them!
If you’re stuck for a last minute Christmas gift, look no further than the BuyMyWardrobe boutique. We have all five scents in store while stocks last.
