I can't believe this new candle collection isn't crazy expensive (and it's 30% off for Azurina Black Friday)

Fancy candles at democratic prices - it's a shopping miracle!

Can we have a moment of honesty about candles please? And I'll caveat this by saying I absolutely love posh candles and hope they never change, but here's the thing: When you get that uber-spendy candle home, light the wick and allow the  fragrance to fill the atmosphere, what's really happening on a basic level is you are in fact  (sorry!) burning money. 

Hey, it's ok. Candles are an indulgent treat and a true mood-booster and there's nothing wrong with that. But if there is one thing that makes me happier than an ultra fancy candle it's a candle that looks and smells like an unreasonable financial decision but is in fact far more affordable than it's appearance lets on. Enter Azurina, specifically Azurina Black Friday. 

This accessories brand is offering 30% off everything this weekend which makes their new collection of eight beautiful candles even more appealing. Because let me tell you something, these babies smell ruinously expensive. Which, considering their post-discount prices, a very reasonable  £8.75 for 75g or £17.50 for 220g, is quite something. 

Each candle is hand poured in the UK from soy wax, with fragrances inspired by travel. They have fun, singular names, unique scents and they look the absolute business. But you probably know that already from the pictures. 

Ready to feel the (surprisingly affordable) burn?

If you're in the market for a lovely and reasonably priced gift it's well worth having a little browse at the rest of Azurina's wares too - think timeless leather handbags, monogrammed scarves and very sophisticated stationary

The only downside will be having to deal with embarrassed friends and family who 'can't possibly accept' your expensive-looking gifts, but I'm sure they'll be convinced in the end.

As woman&home's Senior Beauty Editor, Fiona Mckim has tried more products than she’s had hot dinners and nothing makes her happier than raving about a brilliant beauty find on womanandhome.com or her instagram grid (@fionamckim if you like hair dye experiments and cute shih-tzus)

Fiona joined woman&home as Assistant Beauty Editor in 2013, working under legend Jo GB, who taught her everything she needed to know about the industry (clue: learn about ingredients and employ extreme cynicism). 

In a previous life, Fiona studied journalism back home in bonnie Scotland and honed her skills as a magazine features writer, with a brief and terrifying stint on the showbiz gossip pages of a tabloid newspaper in between. She's a skincare fanatic who can’t resist adding an extra step to her routine if it’s all the rage in Japan, loves fragrance, has fun with makeup and never turns down the chance to test a new hair tool. Basically, she loves it all.

When not slathering herself in self tan or squinting at a tiny ingredients list on a moisturiser, you’ll probably find Fiona enjoying something to do with food - cooking it, eating it, cajoling her friends into trekking across London to try a hyped pop-up in a dirty car park.
