Hey guys! Can you believe that Christmas is tomorrow?! In relation to that I thought that I would do a Christmasy post, since I've barely done any this year, even though I wanted to. I know that candles are a favourite for a lot of people at this time of year, so a candle is exactly what I am posting about today! They aren't normally the sort of thing that I post about, but when I smelt this one I knew that I had to feature it. The product in question is the Winter Oranges candle (even the name sounds great, right?) from La Montana!
I personally had never heard of La Montana before, since it was only founded this year, and I doubt many of you have either, so I'll explain them a little! The company was started by Cassandra (a former beauty PR) and Jonathan Hall (a former writer), who moved from London to Valencia, in Spain. They then noticed all of the amazing scents around the town, and decided to create a line of candles, taking inspiration from those scents!
La Montana Winter Oranges* is supposed to be inspired by the Valencia orange harvest, that happens during winter, mixed with the scent of English Christmases! I absolutely adore the scent, as it is a mixture of spicy cinnamon and clove, with the sweetness and zestiness of orange - basically the scent that every Christmas/winter product should smell of! It's quite a unique scent, as I don't recall having ever smelt a candle like this, plus it's definitely one of those cosy smelling candles.
Apparently each candle burns for 40 hours, which I think is pretty good, especially since the scent is strong whilst burning it (without being too overpowering)! The packaging is also really pretty, as it has a vintage travel poster design, which helps add to the feel of the candle.
I really couldn't recommend this candle enough to you all, because if you like your Christmasy or spicy scents this is definitely for you! Winter Oranges is on the pricey side at £35, including UK postage, however I honestly think it's worth it for such an amazing candle. I know that I'll definitely have to consider repurchasing it once I use mine up. If you're a bit anxious to commit to buying it though you can request a free sample here, so that you can make sure you actually like the scent!
I hope that you all have a great Christmas! I'm not sure what my posting schedule is going to be like for the last few days of this year, so if I don't post before then - see you all next year!
What is your favourite Christmas candle?
