The Country Candle Company are based in Wiltshire, England where they create beautifully scented and packaged candles. I have two of their candles from the Celebrations collection. The Tonka Bean and Vanilla one is my favourite – it also has hints of cinnamon and clove so is a gorgeous Christmas candle without being overly Christmassy, if you know what I mean! The Black Pomegrannate scent is also lovely – it is fruity and reminds me of summer. I think the packaging is really cute and am suprised at how good these candles are as they are so reasonably priced – just £5.99 for a candle that burns for around 20 hours. The Country Candle Company have lots of collections on their website, all well priced and with pretty packaging – I have a long list of ones I want to try next!

Remote control candles might sound a little strange to you but I think these are brilliant! They look surprisingly realistic and unless you are looking right down on them you wouldn’t know there was no real flame. You can switch them on and off at the base but need to use the remote for the various settings. There are a few different settings to make them brighter or more flickery but to be honest I don’t actually use the remote control all that often. If you think you might forget to switch the candles off you can set a timer so that they switch off automatically which is good as you don’t end up draining your batteries. The one thing I’m not too sure about is how long the batteries are going to last – hopefully they don’t drain too quickly as you need two batteries per candle and I don’t know about you but I never have any batteries in the house!
The best thing about these candles is that there is no way you could accidentally start a fire if you fall asleep or forget to blow out the candles! You can buy a pack of three candles here from Paramount Zone for just £12.99. I didn’t want to mention Christmas this early but Paramount Zone also have some great gifts…..
