LollyRocket - Candles

 
LollyRocket is a locally run business located in Northamptonshire, they did have a lovely and very popular little store in my town centre that sold the most quirky, vintage looking items for your home. Unfortunately they sold up and its now under another name, but I was chuffed to see that they now have their very own online store.
When I spotted on their Instagram page that they where hand-making candles, I was all over it! you should see the amazing scent range they do, its impressive. They even stock candles that are specifically for gifts, such as the ones labelled 'New Home' and 'Thank You' - it's such a lovely and unique idea.

I think the way Lolly Rocket have packaged these candles are just perfect. They come in these cute little glass jars, with a pretty vintage style label that fits anywhere within my home. They are also topped off with brass coloured screw lids, to lock in the scent.


You can tell that the people behind LollyRocket put a lot of care and thought into these, the scents are so accurate and they burn brilliantly due to being made with natural soy wax so they don't kick off any black smoke.
They personally hand blend and pour, each and every candle! - these candles seem to be very popular so I can imagine how time consuming this task is for them, yet they still give you 100% quality; even the labels are stuck on super neatly (yes, I really notice these things haha).


These candles are currently on offer, £8 each or 3 for £20 using the code 'GIVEME3'. I obviously couldn't choose one so got three.
The first one that took my fancy straight away was Pumpkin Pie, it literally smells like your Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte - it's AMAZING!! and I feel like I need to buy some more of these ones.
Then after much debate I went with Black Cherry and Vanilla Buttercream. Black Cherry has this delicious strong cherry scent, and the Vanilla Buttercream isn't just your basic boring vanilla scent it actually has a creaminess to it but not in a sickly way.
I don't know how they do it but these are one of the most accurate smelling candles I've smelt..a lot of scented candles I've come across can smell artificial.
While burning these, they fill your whole room with the scent - some scented candles can just smell nice then once they are burnt you can't even catch a hint of the scent.


The other candle scents that are available are...
  • Baby Powder
  • Chocolate Fudge
  • Green Tea and Lemongrass
  • Lemon Meringue
  • Lime Sherbet
  • Rose
  • Strawberries and Cream
  • Salted Caramel
  • Sun Washed Linen
  • Sweetpea
  • Violet & Lime
There is pretty much a candle for everyone's tastes with a mix of fresh and sweet. Next on my LollyRocket candle list is from their new Christmas range - Warm Mince Pies, Candy Cane, Christmas Spice and Spiced Cranberry...how good do those sound?!
The new Christmas candles even come with a Christmas themed label to go with your decorations, they would make a lovely Christmas gift for someone too.

I bought these candles myself as I genuinely think they are brilliant and top quality, I also think its nice to support your local business if you can.
