Whether it is on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, most people always have that special Wintery and Festive bath. There’s lots of different ways to make that perfect bath, whether it be the products inside, the temperature, even the cheeky company, but a key essential to the perfect bath definitely has to be a good candle. This week I’ve been fortunate enough to have received the beyond festive smelling Three Kinds Candle Set from Molton Brown. A company that my family has known about and loved for many years, they are another QVC favourite of ours back in the day.
The Three King Candle Set at £60 is the ultimate treat, whether that be for yourself or a friend/family member who loves candles around the house. It’s worth £75 and includes three seasonal candles which are Frankincense & Allspice, Myrrh, Musk & Cypress and Oudh Accord & Gold. Once I know what a smell is, I will always recognise it, however Molton Brown hasn’t listed the exact scents of these candles. So, in the simplest way I can describe the scents without being massively incorrect is that Accord & Gold is very soft and creamy. Frankincense & Allspice is definitely spicy and definitely a candle for a cold winter night, whereas Myrrh, Musk & Cypress is quite uplifting and I’d say a very good day time scent.
With them being rather fancy and expensive candles there are a couple top tips on how to get the best out of them. For example, to get the best fragrance distribution, place in a central part of the room away from all drafts. If you want an even candle, burn for at least two hours and finally, to minimise the smoking, trim the wick to the height of 6mm.
The Three Kings Candle Set would make such a luxury perfect gift and it even comes gift wrapped in a beautiful big box, that can easily be reused. Any of Molton Brown’s product would make a perfect gift though, a Grogan House favourite is definitely their shower gels.
Are you expecting Molton Brown this Christmas?
