After months of lusting after a Neom candle, I finally bit the bullet at the beginning of September and decided to treat myself.
Neom Candles are made with a blend of 100% natural vegetable wax and pure aromatherapy oils, which burn cleanly without releasing harmful pollutants, toxins or soot – working holistically to make you feel even better. Neom’s range is quite extensive and I struggled to choose just one, but in the end I plumped for the Sumptuous candle.
The Sumptuous candle is scented with wild Rose and Neroli (Orange Blossom). Rose is a calming and soothing oil and Neroli lifts the spirit and calms the mind. The description from Neom is pretty spot on. I feel myself relaxing without wanting to drop off to sleep the instant that the candle is lit and its fragrance starts to permeate the room. Even when the candle isn’t lit it smells beautiful, without being overpowering.
The cost of the candles may seem expensive (£39.50 for 380g), but the burn time is up to 55 hours. I’ve been lighting this for a few hours almost daily and have around two-thirds remaining. It also happens to be one of the most heavenly things that I’ve ever smelled and I will certainly be purchasing another.
