I have been on such candle kick recently and I can't believe I have never tried one from Orla Kiely! With it the summer being officially with us, I was in serious need of a candle that was a little more fresh and fruity to match the weather. I didn't think a lemon scented candle was going to be my kind scent but I have fallen completely in love with and have to keep fighting with my Mum over who is going to burn it - it must be love!
The Orla Kiely Sicilian Lemon Scented Candle* literally smells like a lemon cake and I love it! This candle has the pure uplifting essential oils of Sicilian lemon, mint, lavender with a touch of frankincense for a gorgeous vibrant fragrance. I really wasn't expecting this candle to have such a strong scent but before I had even opened up the box the scent begun to linger out. What I really love about these candles is that it is made from 100% vegetal wax and has a pure cotton wick. Also in the box is a individual heat mat for the candle to help protect your surfaces which I think is an amazing thing to include.
Each candle has one of Orla Kiely's signature prints, this candle features a stunning yellow flower design, both on the outer packaging and on the candle itself. I love the print on this candle, I am such a sucker for packaging, and I have a make up bag with something similar on from Orla Kiely so I secretly love that they almost match. I am defiantly going to keep the glass jar after I have finished the candle and store my make up brushes in because it is too pretty to go in the bin, don't you think?
This candle has one of the best scent kick offs that I have ever had which is saying something because I have tried a lot of candles! It fills the biggest rooms of my house with such a gorgeous lemon fragrance and it still lingers into other rooms of the house and even upstairs which I think is amazing.
This Orla Kiely Sicilian Lemon Candle retails for £25 and is available here - link.
