I have brought several of the lily flame candles and this one has to be one of my favorite,Lily flame candles are expensive at around £5 per tin depending on where you buy them from but they are a lovely little luxury worth every penny.This scent I brought at Christmas and it has a very strong throw on it making any room smell delicious and the smell will waft through your house , it really is almost good enough to eat ( but don't! ) I'd say it has a gingerbread biscuit warming type smell and the main part of the candle is cream coloured with orange and red wax chunks on the top.
As with all Lily Flame candles, each one is hand poured and comes in its own tin and has a burn time of atleast 35 hours. The company are based in Somerset and sell a good selection of scents some of which i have not liked but this one is definately going to be replaced once its burnt.
This is such a lovely candle.
This is the first Lily Flame candle i have ever bought, but i was glad i bought it. I got it from John Lewis for £7.95 (i think they are lower now with the VAT reduction) and free delivery. It arrived about 2 days later.
The candle is in a metal tin with a lid. On the back of the tin it tells you where the candle is made. These candles are made in Somerset in England. How long it will burn for and to follow the instructions printed on the inside of the lid.
The instructions just tell you to put the candle on a heat resistant base and to keep the wick trimmed to about 5mm (i have never had to cut it at all), and some other simple information.
When you first get the candle, on the top of the way are 4 little sweets looking things. I'm not really sure what these are but they just add to the look of the candle and they burn fine.
On the instructions it says the candle burns for about 35 hours, now of course they don't expect you to burn it all in one go so it means spread out over several uses. I have lit it many times since i got it and its still got about half the wax left. I must have been burning it for about 15 hours or so.
The smell from this candle is just lovely. It said on the product web page that it smells of buttery biscuits and gingerbread, and this is most certainly true. The smell is just lovely, it smells like traditional home baking when your mum or granny makes some lovely soft crumbly biscuits and they have just come out of the oven. When you light the candle, within a few minutes the whole room is filled with this lovely smell. Even when the candle is not lit you can still smell it if the candle is nearby.
To some people these candles are quite expensive, but you get a lot of use out of them and the smell is just lovely. Like i said, this is the first Lily Flame candle i have ever bought so i don't know what the other candles smell like, but if you visit their own site www.lily-flame.co.uk or visit www.johnlewis.com and type in Lily Flame you will get a huge selection with a whole range of smells including many christmas scents. If you don't mind paying that bit extra, give one a try. Please don't blame me if you get a smell you don't like though, i have only tried this one candle, but i know i will be buying a new different scented candle soon.
Scented with the wonders of buttery Christmas biscuits and a hint of gingerbread.
