The Violette De Lune Home Candle from Timothy Dunn is a truly beautifully presented product; it comes housed in a black, leather-effect casing with contains the equally glamorous glossy black candle with the Timothy Dunn inscription on the side.
I was also sent the Rose Gold Candle Lid which keeps the candle clean when not in use, and also acts as a safe and easy way to extinguish the candle – the rose gold shade works especially well with the black candle case, but there are silver and gold versions available too.
The Violette De Lune candle is a fragrance that is right up my street; it’s lead notes are wild jasmine and neroli, but it also contains Moroccan rose, amber woods, patchouli and red tea, which makes for a very exotic fragrance that fits perfectly with the ridiculously balmy weather we’re currently experiencing!
I really love the fragrance but annoyingly it doesn’t seem to travel very well; I found that if I was quite near it then it gave off a beautiful scent, but it didn’t travel (I don’t have a particularly large living room) nor did it linger.
I might be used to candles that really throw their fragrance around – I’ve had people mention the scent at my front door which isn’t particularly near my living room – so I might just be spoiled by strong, powerful candles, and this might be a more delicate, gentle air infusion, but I personally prefer a scent that leaves it’s mark.
In conclusion, I love the presentation and this would probably work really well as a candle to be used during a dinner party or at an occasion when you just want a very gentle scent in the background, but if you like a big, whack of fragrance then you might be disappointed.
