It only feels like yesterday that I was basking in the sunshine in my garden marvelling at how lovely the weather was. Yet, a mere 5 days later and I literally cannot get warm. Whilst it’s been a bit of a shock to the system, it announces the start of my favourite season – Autumn.
I love Autumn – the change in fashion, the sense of togetherness as everyone seeks warmth, and of course surrounding yourself in candlelight. I was recently introduced to Rooi.com, an online store playing host to the very best cotton bed linens, interior design and lifestyle products to help you create a unique look for your home.
They kindly let me choose something from their range of beautiful candles to try and I decided to go with one of these charming Paddywax signature soy wax candles. The Jasmine & Bamboo* fragranced candle comes in a lovely hand-painted bowl and is paired with notes of Passionfruit and Guava making it a beautifully fresh and floral scent. The candle burns really well, giving off a great throw but best of all the bowl can be reused once the candle has burnt out. There are a selection of 8 gorgeous bowl designs with 4 botanically inspired fragrances, meaning you can create quite a collection.
Rooi.com offers free delivery on all UK orders, meaning you can buy from them as often as you like without suffering delivery fees. Each candle costs £17.95 and whilst I hate to be the girl that speaks about Christmas in October – these would make lovely gifts for friends of family members!
