Torc Candles Pure Range €26.95
I picked up a few Torc candles coming up to Christmas for presents. Sorry family and friends… I kept them all for myself. One of them was a big three wick Christmas candle, smelling deliciously of spices . We burned this all over Christmas, every single day for hours and it seemed to last for weeks. The stylish Pure range from Torc also has an impressive burn time of 95 hours. Delicious home fragrance at a great price.

Molton Brown €47
This was probably the first fancy candle range I ever bought and it set me straight on the path to addiction. Others have fallen on and off the favorites list but the burning of a Black Pepper or Pink Peppercorn candle will instantly erase the pressures of the day. Although these are my favourites I have tried out most of the range. I often buy them in the Kildare Village outlet where they’re much cheaper. We usually have to stagger out of the place because yes, I do go a bit candle crazy.
