Although I love the zesty notes of orange and mandarin, the richness of the orchid combined with a soft base of musk and iris makes this a little too 'classic' for me to wear as a perfume. It's definitely one I would gift to my grandmother, but it's not refreshing enough for my own personal taste. However, as a scented candle the combination works to provide a beautiful delicate perfume that helps to relax the senses of an evening. The candle is presented in a delicate glass jar, with subtle golden touches making it the perfect addition to any decor. With up to 30 hours burn time, this is a candle that will keep you company for many Spring evenings too. At £24.00, the L'Occitane candle is significantly cheaper than other brands (including Diptique and Molton Brown) who charge around £40.00. This would definitely make an elegant gift for Mother's Day, or just a treat for yourself to celebrate the oncoming warmer months.
The candle is available online priced £24.00, while the accompanying fragrance is priced £49.00 for 75ml. Also available in a body lotion and shower gel.
