[AD] All of us need a little pick-me-up from time to time – and this is certainly the time! Scent can play a part in boosting mood, as it triggers memory and can increase serotonin levels, and as most of us are spending more time at home at the moment then it’s a good time to think about adding a few scented candles or diffusers to various rooms.
Our reviewer Sara Walker takes a look at this luxury scented candle by Prada in Candy L’Eau fragrance, available from Scentsational who specialise in supplying famous brand perfumes and beauty products online at discounted prices.
“I’m a sucker for a scented candle, and have them all over the house. I do buy a lot of ‘cheap’n’cheerful’ ones, but the problem with those is that the fragrance tends to fade very quickly. The more expensive brands have the fragrance all though the candle so it tends to last as long as the candle itself, so I do occasionally treat myself to a luxury candle.
This little 70g candle by Prada is in their Candy fragrance, which is sweet and floral. I do have a bottle of the perfume, and the candle has the same evocative scent. It comes neatly presented in a little gift box with typical Prada understatement, and the candle pot is a soft, pale pink.
Prada themselves describe the fragrance as ‘a fresh and joyful sensation of zestful and sweetly addictive notes. Citrus oriental floral blend of white musks, benzoin and caramel.’ I’m not sure I managed to pick out all that, but I would describe it as ‘nice and fresh’!
“Once lit, you could smell the scent as soon as you walked into the room and the candle burned slowly as well. Priced at £22 from Scentsational (normal price £26), this is not a cheap option – but it is a perfect mood booster either for yourself, or to send to a friend.
Scentsational are still delivering as normal although they’re warning that delivery times may be slower than usual. To find out more or to buy online, visit www.scentsational.com.
