Scented Candles - My Top Five

I have to admit I am a total scented candle addict... the ritual of lighting a candle once the house is calm makes me feel a real sense of zen.  Scented candles also have a lot to add to your Wedding... whether it be to 'scent' your venue, as gorgeous gifts or as a treat to yourself for your morning preparations. It is amazing how a certain scent stays with you, and I love the idea of having a 'scent' that reminds you of your special day... a candle that you can light on each Wedding anniversary to remember your amazing day.  Or is that just me being a crazy romantic!? Whatever you decide... I thought I would share with you my top five scented candles...
Number 1 has to be Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir Candle, £39. The 'scent' we decided on for FleurdeForce's Wedding day. This candle brings back wonderful memories of Fleur's day and I just love it.  I would have it burning every day in my home if I could.
Number 2 is the fabulous Branche D’Olive's Orange Blossom scented candle. With delicate and delicious notes of orange blossom. This candle is also such fantastic value, priced at £16.94. The fantastic ethos of Branche D'Olive, supporting local producers and family companies, also makes it top of my shopping list.
Number 3 is all in the appearance... how beautiful are these Anthropologie scented candles housed in fabulous tins of copper, gold and silver.  The scents of lavender fern, sweet carrot zest and ginger black oak are just fabulous. So for those of you following a 'metallic' wedding theme these would be the perfect enhancement to your Wedding decorations. Priced at £16 (small), £22 (medium), £24 (large).
Number 4  is the Miller Harris Citron Citron Scented Candle. "A vibrant spritz of Sicilian lemon, Spanish orange and Jamaican lime are given spin by cool mint and basil, while a complex base of green moss, Moroccan cedar and cardamom provide a lasting background"... how can you resist?!  Priced at £40 each.
Number 5  is the Diptyque 'Coing' scented candle priced at £40 each. "The comforting, autumnal, luscious scent of delicious quince jelly being made in the kitchen."
 Which is your favourite scented candle? I would love to hear some inspiration from you all...
