Laboratory Perfumes Amber Candle

Laboratory Perfumes Amber Candle - £35

We're fast approaching the holiday season, but I love to take time out to appreciate the run-up by indulging in some of my favourite autumn pastimes. Spiced apple simmering on the stove, cosy jumpers and boots on long walks in the park, crunching up leaves and relaxing baths filled to the brim with bubbles. These are all things I love at this time of year, especially when the nights are longer and it's getting a touch too nippy not to enjoy home comforts. With the dark setting in, I've come to appreciate a high quality candle or two burning away while I slip into my comfiest socks and throw yet another episode of Hollyoaks on. I can't help it, it's my favourite show!

I recently found a wonderful company that makes some of the most amazing smelling candles I've ever been fortunate enough to experience. Laboratory Perfumes, inspired by the countryside, create candles and perfumes that evoke such vivid memories that it's hard to imagine how they can cram nature into a jar. Investing in Amber, the description couldn't have been more perfect for a person that wants to bring the crisp, fresh outdoors into their living room. One sniff and I'm transported into a forest; balmy wood and ambergris with spicy top notes. I can't get enough of the scent, it's just the perfect autumnal burn that I could ever imagine, and Gorse is next on my list.

As for the packaging? Well, who could ask for something more than the simple, elegant glass beaker that I'm sure to use with fresh cut winter flowers once the wax dies out. The fact it looks like something that would have been used to create the scent alone is refreshing to look at. It makes the perfect gift, and a fantastically luxurious splurge for those that can't bear to part with it. The perfumes are on my list for Christmas as something that will become a firm favourite if they smell anything like the candle counterpart.

  5. I'm a big fan of Autumn for all the cosy reasons you mention. I thought the candle was a glass of milk at first, but I actually quite like the clean, milky look. x

  10. Wow, that is a gorgeous candle! I can see why it would be hard to part with! I'm not even sure if I could bring myself to burn it, it's just so lovely. The packaging is brilliant being in a beaker, and the typeset is perfect for it. It looks fabulously classy and modern! Definitely a candle lover's candle! xx

    1. Polly only just got done with burning it, which I'm glad about. Meant she only used it for special occasions and loved it so much. It's made me wish I'd ordered two!
