WIN: Matthew Williamson Midnight Jungle Candle

Disclosure: Candle gifted to me by Matthew Williamson Home Frangrance.

Think it might be okay to mention that Christmas is creeping up on us, especially as I have something really rather special to offer as a giveaway. A large 600g and beautifully scented Luxury Matthew Williamson Midnight Jungle Candle worth £140.

Maybe it would be an early gift for yourself – we all deserve a treat at this time of year do we not ? Or something you would love to win for someone.

As a big fan of iconic world renowned British Designer Matthew Williamson and his use of Kaleidoscopic colourI feel really lucky to have received a candle for myself to try out. He is way up there when it comes to his signature prints and vibrant textiles. Matthew has poured together these elements to create his own collection of home fragrances which I can confirm are stunning. Not only to fragrance your room but also aesthetically too.

Being pretty picky about aromas, loving especially quite earthy and rich tones – this does not disappoint. In fact this is how Midnight Jungle is described by Matthew: Exotic, dense jungle terrain inspires the scent of blackcurrant, fig leaves and gardenia. A mysterious mix of natural honey, patchouli and cedar wood evoke the undergrowth of a midnight jungle.

I’d say it is exactly how it has been described.

Matthew says of his home fragrance designs: “As well as creating unique scents that I personally love, I wanted the candles to be objects of beauty and reflect all of the design elements which I have become known.” 

Each of the candles from the luxury range come beautifully presented in boxes and are hand finished in Matthew’s London studio. The great thing about these is that when you’ve burnt the candle completely, you can then keep the ceramic jar as a keepsake. I will be using mine to store some of my interior design tools in, on my desk but they’d look good as a vase too.

So you can see both sides, I’ve taken a picture of the parrot on the reverse.

The other four signature scents in the range are as follows …

Jaipur Jewelaipur Jewel captures the essence of India’s bustling and vibrant pink city. A heady mix of incense, spices and woody notes combine with natural accents of juniper and cinnamon.

Summer Siesta  – Inspired by coastal and Mediterranean towns and villages. Summer Siesta is a refreshingly crisp and uplifting scent with notes of mandarin, lemon and tuberose.

English GardenTraditional cottage gardens and meadows provide inspiration for this floral and fruit based scent with accents of Ceylon tea, orange blossom and rose evoking the unique charm of an English garden.

Palm SpringsFragrant white roses and delicate jasmine flowers form the heart of the Palm Springs scent. Vanilla, leather and musk add depth whilst ozonic top notes evoke a fresh summer breeze.

Thought I’d also mention that there are also 200g candles in glass jars finished with his pineapple and peacock motif and room diffusers with bottles and grey reeds. They are quite timeless in style and all with a really luxurious feel.

Each fragrance has been refined with natural materials from all over the world – from jasmine flowers and tuberose sourced from Grasse in France to spices in Indonesia.

Now that I’ve photographed my own candle to show you, I can use it – thank goodness ! We are having a Birthday celebration here this weekend and I cannot wait to fill the room with this gorgeous scent for everyone.

Do you think it’s time for a  giveaway ? It’s been a while but when you have the opportunity to offer one of your lucky readers £100 worth of homeware of their choice at Happy + Co then you’re going to say yes. It’s a no brainer.

First things first though. I want to tell you about this brand Happy + Co. They are an online store who design affordable every day home essentials that are a joy to look at and a pleasure to use. I think their name kind of says it all really.

The patterns are vibrant, strong and cheery. I don’t know about you but I love the contrasting shapes on their tableware, cushions and bedding and wouldn’t say no to one of their armchairs either ! It’s definitely a brand with a strong identity. If you look at my instagram page, you will see I have the Newport style cushion in blue and can 100% say that it’s excellent quality. They have a sea of different designs to choose from on their website, named and inspired by the brand’s travels over the years.

Some of the cushions come in different coloured piping so if you’re wanting to go black and white but with a splash of colour then no problem – and you can also get them in striped too.

What I also really like about Happy + Co is that they are extremely ethical and invest 10% off every purchase made in to their own farm, developed for the community in Siem Reap, Cambodia. it was developed by co – founder of Happy + Co; Gary Elton. The main aim of the farm is to create jobs for local people  – and after only two years  – it has had a really positive impact on peoples’ lives.
