I’ve been filling my room with the scent of Christmas trees, thanks to My Jolie Candle’s festive release.
The candle glass itself is fairly plain other than a sticker featuring the brand logo and the outer box’s design, which is a gorgeous Christmas foliage pattern, though it will certainly make a useful little glass when I’ve finished it.I can’t deny that when I opened the box I did get a whiff of kitchen cleaner. I wasn’t sure whether Christmas Tree would be a conceptual or true to life scent but it does have an undeniably pine-fresh aroma! Whilst burning the scent did dissipate a little (thankfully) and, instead of a smelling like we lived inside a tree-house, we were left with a pleasant and neutralising scent. I wouldn’t have thought I’d want my room to smell of a pine tree but I stand corrected, apparently getting a whiff of a Christmas tree farm every time I enter my room is more enjoyable than I expected.
I reached the tin foil packet holding the jewellery very late last night so the lighting was less than optimum for taking photos; I’ll be showing off my new bracelet later today on my Instagram so you’ll need to keep your eyes open for the big reveal! One thing I will say is that it was incredibly fiddly to get on and seems to run a little small, if you have larger than average wrists or struggle with tiny clasps I’d go for one of the other jewellery variations.
My Jolie Candles are priced at £19.90, not the most affordable wax offering by any means but with a decent throw and extra treat inside they would make an impressive gift for a female friend or relative. You can actually select whether you’d like to receive a ring (different sizes available), bracelet or necklace which is very handy if you want to go for a specific item.
