The Charming Candle Co Review

A few weeks ago The Charming Candle Co sent me one of the most lovely gifts and I thought I’d tell you what I thought of it.

The Charming Candle Co was founded in 2017, with a mission to shake up gift-giving.  They think gifts should be interesting. Each candle is fully made in the UK. The candle jar design is a bespoke illustration by a local designer. They’re all printed locally. Their wax and scents are sourced, melted, mixed and hand-poured, locally. All candles have a secret charm or ring hidden inside the candle to add a surprise.

I was sent the Piña Colada scented candle, which is one of the nicest things I’ve ever smelt. The pineapple comes through so much, but doesn’t overpower the nice creamy scent of the coconut. Even when the candle isn’t burning, the room is filled with the lovely smell.

The main thing that struck me was my anticipation to see which charm I had received. I must admit, I burnt my candle very regularly to get to the charm. I was really excited to see the little gold foil parcel poking out of the wax one day. I quickly grabbed some tweezers and pulled it out. After it had cooled down I opened the parcel to find a very sweet dainty ring.

I like this ring because it goes will anything, and I think it suits a lot of different styles. All my friends have been interested in the candles, as they make a perfect gift which has a bit of personality.

Pairfum Innocent Vanilla Reed Diffuser Review*

FullSizeRender-6

I love all things smelly, (good smelly of course). I am constantly trying out new scented candles and air fresheners. The only thing is…I’m rather allergic to a lot of things. So, I was looking for something which would keep my room smelling fresh and inviting without making my skin and eyes itch!

I was very kindly sent the Pairfum Large Reed Diffuser (£37.50) in the ‘Innocent Vanilla’ scent from the lovely people are Pairfum. The diffuser contains 250ml of fragrance which is composed of natural and organic essential oils that are non-toxic, non-flammable and non-carcinogenic. The perfume oil in the diffuser is non-VOC which is safer to use and VOC oils are not healthy for the lungs and they deplete the ozone layer so this one is much safer to use and better for the environment as it is contains a non-VOC fragrance oil.

I had absolutely no negative reactions to this, so was really pleased. It also fit really well into my newly decorated room.

The bell shape bottle and black looks really classy and simple. The box it arrived in was lovely, so would making an excellent gift for someone.

The scent is also just as classy and simple, it isn’t overpowering sweet fake vanilla smell, like a lot of scents. It is clean and smooth vanilla. You can change the intensity of the scent depending on how many reeds you use. I’ve been using five, but since I like the smell so much I’m thinking of putting in the rest of the reeds.  The more reeds you use and how often you turn them, the stronger the fragrance will be.

The diffuser should last between 6 to 9 months which sounds fantastic, so really it is rather economical compared to ‘cheaper ones’.

Pairfum offer a range of perfume products, such as candles, perfumed botanicals, room and linen sprays. Not only do they add a wonderful smell to your house, but they can be part of the overall decor. I will certainly be buying some other products from the range and cannot wait to try some of their other scents!

*this product was gifted to me, but all the opinions are honest and my own.
