Timothy Dunn Blue Rose Candle

Timothy Dunn London is a brand that screams luxury and has a brand which is synonymous with some major events (Wimbledon) and department stores. Alongside a 20 year career in floristry, Timothy Dunn has created a selection of candles, housed in the brand's signature hand-blown glass and when I received one at my door, I was simply blown away.

Candles are a household item that is an essential for me. They perform part of the relaxation process and there is something quite mesmerizing about watching the wick, once alight, dance around and flicker, producing and creating an array of wonderful scents as it does so. As soon as I opened the outer packaging, the one thing which hit me was this wonderful fresh floral scent before I had even opened the candle from its wrapping. Strong, floral and incredibly fresh it is a scent you would find very hard not to fall in love with.

Now this isn't just any candle, Blue Rose is one that is is dedicated to the memory of Timothy Dunn's mother and inspired by her wonderfully idyllic English country garden
.  For me it reminds me of my own Grandma's garden as I grew up, it was always full of flowers all year round and she would spend hours pruning her roses and filling vases throughout the house, even in the downstairs toilet and I am sure it is from her that my love of Peonies, Roses and Sunflowers has come from, every year we could have a competition as to who could grow the largest sunflower and even now, I have sunflowers and roses in my garden every year.

The description to accompany the candle is "Sit back and fill your senses with an abundance of highly scented roses, mop-headed peonies, gentian, heartsease, hollyhocks, forget-me-nots and jasmine. This fresh, modern floral candle is created with rosewater notes, dewy violets, sugared raspberries and a contemporary rich-red Moroccan rose accord, expertly blended with an array of sensual musks and enhanced with nuances of zesty orange flower, cedar and fresh green tea. Absolutely divine".

I couldn't wait to light this candle and once it was alight, it really comes into its element and bursts into life with the floral scent of roses, peonies and even a hint of jasmine capturing your senses and filling every room within the house. The candle has a burn time of around 40 hours which is quite amazing and I tend to leave it alight for around 1-2 hours before extinguishing the flame and then the scent is still strong enough to linger for a good few hours.
This is honestly one of the best luxury candles that I have ever been fortunate enough to try and I cannot recommend it any more than I already have, it is just amazing and a scent that is just stunning. Timothy Dunn London is available at a number of stores including Harrods and Fortnum and Mason so the range is definitely worth looking out for if you are in the area or you can order online right HERE
