Candle - Westcountry Collection in Lost Garden
So you may have noticed I have been MIA for the past 6 months. We uprooted from Australia to come back to the motherland and are now located in the South West of England in Devon. It has taken me this long to sort myself out, get myself a job, get settled etc and now I'm back in the blogging mood.
I was walking with my husband a few days ago and I said to him how much I had missed the smells of England and particularly that of Summer. This candle for me is Summer wrapped in a simple yet elegant package. I'm afraid I didn't get any shots of this candle when it was brand new, I wish I had as it was beautiful all dazzled with coloured crystals on top but I didn't expect to love it so much that it would make it's way onto the blog, when I bought it I was purely because i was feeling spendy and it smelt ok in the shop. The most devastating part of this story is that I can't remember where I purchased it and these guys seem to have no online presence at all. Waaaaaah!
The candle is named Lost Garden and is described as sun kissed mixed blooms misted with morning dew. Heaven!!
To me this candle translates as a warm woody scent with hints of rose and hot sun lotioned skin. For some reason it reminds me slightly of talcum powder but totally in a good way. If i could bottle this scent and wear it, man, I would wear it and I doubt I would ever stop.
I'm devastated I can't find this candle online anywhere for you. I'm pretty sure i purchased it in a little shop in Kingsbridge in South Devon, I will make it my life's mission to find it again and I will be buying them all! In the mean time if anyone knows where I can get more of this please let me know, and get one for yourself while you're at it.
You won't regret it.
Thanks for reading
