Mintoshi Raspberry & Vanilla Candle

I am obsessed with candles. I mean what blogger isn't? I'm constantly burning them much to my dads dismay (I get lectured on fire safety weekly). I just want my house to smell beautiful. I was kindly sent a Minotshi Candle and it was love at first whiff. As I opened the package I was greeted by the most delicious scent.

I was kindly sent the Raspberry & Vanilla Candle* and oh my god it could not be more perfect. Raspberry and vanilla are two of my favourite scents (and flavours). It comes in a white cardboard box which looks so pretty and would make the perfect gift. Mintoshi candles are made using a blend of vegetable and mineral wax. Zoe also tries to reduce the number of additives to ensure a clean burn as well as keeping your home healthy. This includes not using limonene which is often found in scented candles/melts and can lead to a reaction that produces formaldehyde. Zoe decided to make her own candles because she found her headaches were aggravated by scented candles & air fresheners. The aim for Mintoshi Candles is clean, healthy, highly fragranced candles which have as little environmental impact as possible. I can definitely confirm that these candles have a nice clean burn and are beautifully fragranced.

Can we just take a minute to appreciate how simple and gorgeous this frosted glass jar is? I think this may be one of the prettiest candles I own. Now onto the scent. This is definitely not one of those candles that you can only smell when you stick your nose in the jar. I am currently burning it and my whole living room smells heavenly. It kind of reminds me of sweets but I can't think which ones. Either way it smells delicious. The burn time claims to be 40hrs and I think I've burned it for about 6 so far and it's barely made a dent yet.

These are definitely on a par with Yankee Candles but in prettier jars. At £12 for a 30cl candle I can tell you I will definitely be buying more. There are so many delicious scents to choose from I don't know which one to get first.

Other delicious scents include
Apple pie & custard
Carrot Cake
Wild Strawberry & Parsley
Log Fire
Custard Cream
Strawberry Smoothie
Fresh Cotton
Chocolate & Mint

There are also 3 types of candles. The basic candle I received, Eco Candles and Large 3 wick candles. You can also get a mermaid candle and bath bombs

I am trying to support smaller businesses more so if you are in the market for some delicious smelling candles then I highly recommend Mintoshi. Best smelling candle I have had for a while and I can't wait to try more fragrances.
