I am a real candle lover and have them all around the flat. When I saw these on the Argos website I fell for them. At just £4.99 I couldn't resist. They used to be £14.00 which would have been a bit much in my opinion.
These are small glass candle holders, similar in shape and size to small whiskey tumblers, containing a cream coloured candle in each. One of the holders is cream and the other a lovely shade of purple.
On the outside of the glass is a lovely sandblasted damask pattern which when a candle is burning in them is shadowed ever so slightly on to a wall nearby (if the holder is close enough). They don't let out a huge amount of light but it is enough to give off a subtle and pretty glow. The certainly add atmosphere to the room.
Where the candle is so well protected from draughts there is far less flickering occuring. They make me feel like the candles are safer where nothing can get too close. I know that they are still a fire risk but not in the same way as a candle which is completely exposed. So if you want candles but the fear factor prevents you then these would be a very good choice.
They came really well packaged, there was no way they could have got broken. The box they came in was quite pretty and would make them an ideal gift even without wrapping.
The candles did not burn for long but also did not make any mess in the bottom of the holders which means that they are easy to keep reusing with small tea light candles.
I am really pleased with these, they look expensive, not cheap! Several visitors have commented on them. They look great with a candle lit in them or not. I wish I had bought a few more!
