Today is the day I am starting my Christmas Gift Guide … I will be doing quite a few of these in the run up to Christmas with lots of fantastic brands and products for a bit of inspiration on gift giving for all the special people in your life. Today is one for him and/or her in the form of this divine Rathbornes Wild Mint, Watercress and Thyme Candle*
A good old brand that’s close to home and has been running from its roots in Ireland since 1488 in fact they are the oldest candle brand in the WORLD! Some pretty mean feat there! They ooze luxury and quality the gold on white design with milk white glass is so elegant and eclectic they would be such a wonderful stocking filler for anyone this year from your everyday candle lover to someone after something a little bit different.
This stunning hand-poured in Dublin candle using a special beeswax blend and essential oils for a truly luxurious experience retails at £16 for this 90g single wick which is the percent stocking price in my opinion. Though if you
want something a bit bigger the 2 wick retails at £30 and the luxury statement 4 wick retails at £50.
They have 6 different variation categories of scent: Citrus Floral, Woody Oriental, Floral, Green Woody, Sweet Floral and Refreshing. This is in the Refreshing on and it is certainly that it is truly one of the most pleasant scent I have ever smelt. I would personally place this in the kitchen or hallway as it has such a light and airy feel. If I could describe the candle in a scenario it would be like opening up your window on a fresh spring morning, taking in the smell of the dew on the grass with the wind blowing sweet and sharp notes of citrus and mint that lifts a room.
A real balancing scent it has warm undertones with the subtleness of the thyme and hints of ginger but is airy and fresh with the hits of mint, lemon and eucalyptus. A lovely gift to give this Christmas that is also lovely for kids to give to their parents etc this size though called ‘travel size’ is by no means measly it is something that I know I would love to receive. If one of the other scents or sizes is what you are after you can find Rathbornes full rage here
