Hi there Perfume Posse, Do any of you like to have a couple of medium price, boxed candles prewrapped so you always have beautiful gifts even if I have totally forgotten an event? I keep a couple of Gascoigne & King Luxury Candles wrapped in my wardrobe (in a plastic bag so they don’t get dusty). There are even cards ready with them in case I have to run and write them and bring the gift out as if I’d known all along. Yes, giving my game away but doing to help you all.
Gascoigne & King Luxury Candles
Gascoigne & King is an Australian brand of candles, it’s been created by my mate Bronwyn Gascoigne who is a powerhouse Mum and businesswoman. She lives in very trendy Surry Hills in Sydney in a beautiful terrace row house that has been renovated and modernised from the back of the front wall right the way to the super industrial metal back gate. Bronwyn is cool: she is fun, sunny, gorgeous, clever, easy going and astute on so many levels. Just being with her gives me a boost in energy levels and we always enjoy our time together.
Why am I telling you all this? Well the Australian $ is currently in dire straits, which is excellent news for anyone buying stuff from here and getting it sent. So I was thinking that if you’re like me and like to have some stuff on hand, or even if you LOVE having beautiful candles in your home, then what better time than now to grab a bargain AND have something totally exotic from Australia. People will be seriously wowed. I know I would be.
Aprés by Gascoigne & King Luxury Candles
Featured notes include: Vanilla, tonic bean, caramel, birch tar, clove, fir needle, sandalwood, patchouli
This is the candle I am currently burning in my living room. Normally I love to burn Pear Angelys in the white jar, because I love the way the light fruity pear sits above the spicy vanilla. This time when I was with Bronwyn she gave me Aprés as a GWP because it’s been designed with one of Australia’s famous interior designers.
From the Gascoine & King site: Apres is a collaboration between Gascoigne & King, and Terri Winter, founder of the premium design store top3 by design. The fragrance was inspired by Terri’s family skiing holidays in Germany, and sitting in front of a crackling fire relaxing after a day on the slopes.
Aprés is much more deep and rich than Pear Angelys, it manages to give a room a lovely warm glow. Sweet vanilla/caramel is offset by the birch/fir and clove. So the room smells welcoming and comfortable. The room smells like someone wearing a niche woodsy vanilla scent just moved to another room but their fragrance still lingers. We burn the candle till the whole top becomes liquid then we blow it out, about 20-30 minutes. That cleanses all other scents from the room and smells delicious for the rest of the evening.
Considering I get over 75 hours of burn time that’s a whole season smelling gorgeous.
