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 Jewel – aipur 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 Garden – Traditional 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 Springs – Fragrant 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.
