One of the first thing I do at this time of year is to stock up on candles of all shapes and sizes, scented, bees wax, pillar, tea lights. I simply love them and couldn’t imagine our home without them, the comforting glow on dark evenings is just the loveliest thing.
I particularly like candles that are packaged well, displayed into a stylish vessel that give any surface a new dynamic with the added bonus of being able to use said vessel again; this is a win win in my book.
These beautiful amber glass jarred 100% soy wax candles are by The Nomad Society and I simply love them. They are sheer perfection when it comes to candles, sleek, scented, hand poured, artisan and wonderful.
Here’s a little bit about the ethos and meaning behind this unique company.
“The destination for those who roam
Our collection of hand poured scented soy candles are talismans from days spent in the water and nights under the stars.
1550s, from Middle French nomade (16c.), from Latin Nomas (genitive Nomadis) “Wandering groups in Arabia.”
1) A person who continually moves from place to place: wanderer
The Nomad Society encapsulates our love of travel. Daydreamer at heart, our collection invokes a sense of wanderlust.
The Nomad Society is for the globetrotters amongst us wanting to bring back a talisman from our days spent by the beach and under the stars.
Our collection of hand poured scented soy candles embrace our nomadic lifestyles. We hand pour in small batches, taking pride in using no mass production in the making of any of our products. All our candles are phthalate free.”
I’m lucky enough to have two contrasting scents, the first Day Dreamer from the SS16 // Wanderlust collection conjures up memories of those warmer summer days with an added note of coconut, the subtle fragrance is sublime.
The second which is my overall favourite is Last Night from the AW16 // Darker Days collection, the scents are inspired by darker days, winter botanicals and autumnal adventures. This one fills the room with the most intoxicating aroma of amber wood and moss, it is delicious. Simply perfect for this time of year.
These very special candles are poured by hand in Hossegor, France, in small batches to keep their individuality and integrity to the fore. They come in two different sizes, small 125ml, 6cm diameter with an approximate burn time of 20 hours and large 500ml, 10.5cm diameter with an approximate burn time of 85 hours.
So if you are struggling for Christmas gift ideas, struggle no more, these candles would make the most perfect gift for anyone in your life, you have my guarantee!
