This is the first collection of scented candles released by the British furniture and homeware brand, with six memory-invoking scents to choose from.Retailing at £40 each, the candles are hand poured using a 100% natural blend of beeswax, soy and rapeseed wax, and have an estimated burn time of 35 hours.
Each candle also comes encased in a beautiful stoneware jar with a hand-dipped crackle glazed lid, which can be reused as a storage pot after the candle has burned down.
And if you thought that the smell of Pencil Sharpenings (opens in new tab) couldn't possibly make for a gorgeous candle, think again. With woody notes of cedarwood combined with patchouli, amber and 'the faint possibility of an after-school detention', this one will have you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside despite the cold Autumn evenings.
If you're a fan of lighter, more floral scents, Loaf's Granny's Garden (opens in new tab) wax candle is a throwback to lighter, brighter days – smelling of fig, rose and fresh grass. Not to mention the Laundry Days (opens in new tab) candle, which, with its scents of fresh cotton, laundry powder and sandalwood, has us hankering back to the days when we'd help hang out the washing for an extra bit of pocket money.
And who could forget the sleepless excitement of Christmas Eve (opens in new tab) as a child? If only you could bottle it...Well, Loaf actually have, recreating its fir tree, cedarwood and cinnamon-smelling anticipation in gorgeous candle form.
