Candles always make a great gift and I have already written about some – Aqua di Parma, Malin + Goetz, and Jonathan Ward for example. So today I want to tell you about three other options!

In Love Candle by Daniel Sandler, £30 240g. get from urbanretreat.co.uk

‘In Love’ Candle by Daniel Sandler was created  in collaboration with Jonathan Ward. And as I like both brands (and men behind them), I am excited about this one!

Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom Collection for Autumn 2015

For me personally it’s always a big deal when Jo Malone release their new autumnal scent. I am actually absolutely in love with Blackberry and Bay and I’ve bought my Mum Peony and Blush Suede which she loves.

I don’t yet have a bottle of Sea Salt and Sage from last year’s  collection still but it’s only a matter of time..
