Last week I attended the launch event for the multi-talented Pearl Lowe's new limited edition candle collection for DP London, held at the ultra-fancy Mayfair Hotel.
Upon entering the Schiaparelli Suite, I was instantly struck by how incredible the room smelled - always a good sign at a candle launch - and after hearing the ingredients list I can understand why! The three candles in Pearl's collection feature a delicious mix of bergamot, orange peel, cedar wood, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and vanilla, all of which help to create a beautifully relaxing and warming atmosphere. Not only are the candles gorgeous, they're also made from 100% natural wax and are presented in re-useable packing in the form of a bespoke, handmade Japanese porcelain container.
The Pearl Lowe for DP London Candle Trio is available for the bargain price of £30, and can be purchased from Selfridges and ASOS.com. Having had a good sniff first-hand, I can promise you that they'd make a perfect Christmas present for someone you really, really like, or even as a little treat for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
