I’ve been following Bloom Candles on Twitter for a couple of months now, and kept drooling over everyone else’s pictures of them. When I saw that they were low in stock in their limited edition Candy Apple scent, I quickly added far too much to my basket before I missed out. I haven’t used all these yet (obviously, because I now have a lifetime stock), but I wanted to share them with you anyway because they all smell so good.
Each Bloom Candles product is hand-poured in Cheshire by owner, Olivia. I love knowing how much care has gone into each candle, and I’d much rather support a small business if the quality is just as good as some of the bigger brands.
This Rhubarb and Custard candle is by far my favourite buy. It smells really sweet and fruity, just like a Rhubarb and Custard sweet! This is the first one that I’ve started to burn, and the scent fills my entire house, more so than many of my favourite Yankee Candles. So far, I’m very impressed!
I can’t lie, I only brought the Surprise candle because it looks pretty. I didn’t read the description properly when I purchased this, so I thought each layer was a different scent, as I’ve got some from Woodwick Candles like that. This candle actually smells like Mango Sorbet, which isn’t the most Autumnal scent, but still smells really nice. I won’t be rushing to burn this one yet as I’m 100% ready to bring out all of my Christmassy scents now, so I’ll save this one for the warmer months!
Candy Apple is unfortunately out of stock now, but I would highly recommend it if it gets restocked. When this one’s burning, it smells like I’ve been baking an apple pie (I’m a rubbish housewife, so it’s nice to give the illusion that I try sometimes). It’s perfect for this time of year, and I just wish I’d brought more!
Clementine and Prosecco is the only candle that I’m not too keen on, which is a surprise because Prosecco is my favourite thing in the world. It has sort of a ‘kitchen cleaner’ type scent, so while it may not work in my living room, I might give this a try in the kitchen.
I also brought some Wax Pops in the scents Banana Nut Bread, Mango Sorbet, Pina Colada and Clean Cotton. Silly me doesn’t even own a wax burner, so I can’t even try these out until I’ve got one, but all I can say is – run out and buy Banana Nut Bread right now. It’s the best thing I’ve ever smelt and I wish I’d got ten candles in the scent. It’s dreamy.
Last, but definitely not least, I brought a wax bar in the scent Black Cherry and a Surprise Melt Box. The wax bars are similar to the melts, you just break a few squares off and put them in a wax burner. The Surprise Melt Box is such a good idea! It contains 12 melts in all of the current scents stocked by Bloom Candles. It gives you a chance to try before you buy the larger sizes, and it only costs £3.99.
This entire order came to just over £30, which I think is really well priced for candles, especially ones that are hand-poured.
