Lavina Lily Soy Candle **REVIEW**

I have to admit I am a sucker for a candle! I love lighting a candle of an evening and letting the house fill with the smell of whichever candle I have lit. There is just something that seems to make it feel a little more cosy when there is a candle or 2 burning on the side too.

When I was recently sent a candle from Lavina Lily I was so excited to open it up and discover the scent!
We received the Tunisian Neroli and Rose candle and as soon as I open the box the beautiful aroma hit me and I could smell the Rose instantly. The candle is presented in a quaint white box and inside the candle is presented in beautiful clear glass container with chrome lid. The candle has not 1 but 2 wicks inside and gives of a lovely glow when lit. The aroma from the candle is not overpowering at all and fills the room with very little burning time, We had ours burning for around an hour and the whole house (including the upstairs!) was filled with the beautiful aroma.

Abby the lovely lady behind Lavina Lily is a full time mummy of 3 boys who started making soy candles part time when her boys were at home which started to do well and grow, But she is now trying to make her beautiful candles and diffusers into a full time business.




Here is a little about Lavina Lily and the beautiful candles and home fragrances -

" Here at Lavina Lily we are obsessed with beautiful fragrances for the home and work hard to create scented candles using only the best ingredients possible.
Our candles are all made individually by hand and using the best quality soy wax which is non-toxis and burns cleaner than the paraffin alternatives, Soy wax also gives you a longer lasting burn with a creamier fragrance."

As well as the Tunisian Neroli and Rose scent we received there are many others to chose from on the Lavina Lily website including Strawberry cupcake,Lemon chiffon, Blackberry and Basil, Mimosa and Mandarin and many more. Lavina Lily also offer Fragrance diffusers in many of the same fragrances mentioned above if perhaps candles are not your thing. 
These candles would make fantastic gifts and are priced at £16 each for the large candles I feel this is an extremely good and competitive price in comparison to other luxury candles on the market.

Why not pop over to the Lavina Lily website here - www.lavinalilylondon.co.uk and have a look around at all they have to offer. Don't forget to pop back and let us know which fragrance you like the sound of the most!.

  2. I adore candles too, but only high quality ones. Soy ones are great as they are lower burning and neroli is a fab scent too

  11. I love candles but I'm so forgetful, I worry I'll go to bed and leave them burning! I did exactly that the other day but thankfully the hubby noticed them and blew them out for me!
