ABAHNA’s NEW 5-WICK WINTER FIG & CEDARWOOD CANDLE
“A sensual and exotic scent to promote serenity and stillness with overtones of love“
For the first time in ages I’m lost for words, you’ll be relieved to hear, so here’s my 60-second rave about Abahna’s 5-wick, 900g limited edition winter candle – it’s one of their best-smellers and it’s back in time for sleigh season.
The Scent: Winter Fig & Cedarwood (a warm fresh Mediterranean fig, subtly woody, a luxurious and uplifting blend of natural essential oils)
It’s a whopper! With 5-wicks, and weighing in at 900g it weighs a small ton and is the size of a medium birthday cake.
WAX: 100% SOY WAX, handpoured in England (British Beauty Blogger might like this one after her brilliant post about how palm oil is destroying the ecosystem)
Burn time: 60 hours
Yes this beauty arrived yesterday afternoon and I couldn’t help lighting it before it got dark to find out if it smells as good as it looks. Well it does. It burns evenly and I could actually smell the wintery fig scent across the room, so it really delivers on the aromatherapy front.
It’s quite the mantlepiece scene-stealer and considering its size, it’s great value if you feel like splurging on a wow factor candle this season. It’ll impress your dinner guests or you could just gaze at its flickering orange flames while you glug down some mulled wine. Definitely on a par with, say Jo Malone or Neom, very luxurious, and I’m ordering two for Christmas – one for my mum and one for my sister.
