His and Hers Candles with Urban Apothecary

With Valentines Day on the horizon and supermarkets and the high street is flooded with ideas and tempting bargains (oh and Easter Eggs) and whilst Santa was very good to both of us over Christmas, there is one item we both do enjoy (me more so) are candles.
His and Hers Candles with Urban Apothecary
I mention candles fairly regularly on my blog and absolutely love discovering new brands and new scents and the most recent has come from Urban Apothecary and the two candles I am sharing today are just totally stunning from the box they arrived in, to the overall design and scent.  The candles are made of soy wax with a cotton wick and each candle is hand poured in England and housed in mouth blown glass.  

Described as follows:
Urban Apothecary is a new take on home fragrance that will transform your rooms. Combining distinctive aromas, the candles and diffusers encapsulate mixtures of memories and moods.

The two fragranced candles I have are Smoked Leather and Tuberose Petals and they are both huge at 300g and have a burn time of approximately 60 hours and they cost £30 each.

Smoked leather is described as being a Meditative and calming. It has aromatic top notes of saffron, coriander and white thyme which open out into a heart of rich, resinous olibanum and amber and woody cedar. Then to the base which gives you the leather, suede and vetiver combination which is described as achieving a beautiful balance and sumptuous woodiness.

The scent as you can imagine from that description is quite something and it is one you can already get a scent of before you remove the candle from its box.  Once it is alright the scent really comes alive and you get a delicious mix and it is smoky, it is just divine. 

Tuberose Petals is described as being opulent and botanical and this one is a definite try me now candle.  Again before the box is even opened, that fresh scent of rose petals is already filling my senses. If you know anything about then there are a few` scents I absolutely love the scent of Rose but more so Tuberose which has a heavier and sweeter scent.

Again with an incredible set of notes, this candle starts with the refreshing top notes of green leaves and bergamot which combined with the heart notes of botanical tuberose and subtly sweet honeysuckle before the addition of carnation, sandalwood and coconut come together to create this beautiful scent.  I know a lot of people don't like the scent of coconut and honestly, it isn't the dominant scent here at all, Tuberose with a hint of bergamot most definitely is it.

With both of these candles, I have never felt the need to burn them for longer than a few hours at a time, the scent comes to life within minutes of the wick being alight and every room in the house is filled with an incredible scent.  I quite like having the two of these burning at the same time, they come together to make quite the mix with the smokiness of Smoked Leather but the fresh botanical scent of Tuberose Petals, it shouldn't work, but it most definitely does.

If you are in the mood to buy yourself a candle or treat someone else to a candle, then Urban Apothecary have an abundance of scents to tempt you from Cherry Tree and Fig Blossom to Verbena Leaves and Oudh Geranium and so many more.  I am always happy to be able to promote a British brand and Urban Apothecary are just that, with their factory in Leicester to which it has grown from the kitchen table, there is now a catalogue of scents and products to lust after whether you like candles, tealights or reed diffusers there is plenty of choice!
