Di Palomo Tuscan Rose Fragrant Candle

"In the courtyard of a Tuscan Villa, beneath the ancient Linden tree, we sit quietly lost in thought.
As shadows lengthen, a heavenly scent of climbing roses embraces us, like a perfumed kiss so tender and warm..."


You may recognise this brand from a previous product I've reviewed. That would of been the Wild Fig and Grape perfume which was simply divine. The product looked luxurious and in return made you feel pampered too. 

Well I am now pleased to announce that they have expanded their range with a whole new scent - Tuscan Rose. This new line of products includes candles, body butters, body washes, lotions, potions and anything you could ever want to have a gorgeous, relaxing pamper session. I was lucky enough to get my hands on this Tuscan Rose Fragrant Candle* and I couldn't be happier. When my Vanilla Cupcake Yankee Candle ran out near Christmas last year I started feeling a bit lost. I loved having a fragrance burning in the background and the soothing flickering of the flame on a blank wall whilst I wrote my blog posts. So when I noticed that Di Palomo were selling a candle it seemed like the perfect fit.

The packaging is beautiful. It has been a while since I have come across a brand that actually puts the same amount of attention into their packaging as they do with their products. The cute pink box looks lovely with the roses printed it - perfect for Valentine's Day if you ask me. Futhermore, there is a picture of the product on the back so you know what you are getting.

The box notes:
This hand-blown glass vase is filed to create a luxurious candle, made from 100% natural wax blended olive oil. It will burn for up to 50 hours, providing the most delicious fragrance of Tuscan Rose.

This already makes another point for me. The frosted glass bowl with the delicate cream coloured candle look wonderful with any colour scheme. I am a bit crazy when it comes to picking candles. I like the scent to be nice but I also like the candle to match its surroundings. My room is beige and blue for the majority so this fits in perfectly.

The scent, although described as delicious, is not too overpowering. Delicate rose fills the room and lingers in the air for hour after blowing out the candle. It's better than any air freshener in my eyes.

There are two wicks to the candle which is something I have not bought into before. But it's true that two wicks equal double the loveliness. Not only does it give more of an ambiance, but it also helps the candle to burn more efficiently and evenly. This helps to make sure that you don't have a lot of wax left that the end which you can't burn. Clever, ey?

I've really fallen for this range of products and hope that you can discover something you like equally as much too. You can check out all of the products here. Let me know your thoughts on what you find and what your favourite product would be.
