Primark Deluxe Candles

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and had a fabulous week. I am so glad it is the weekend, even though i won't have much of one until my day off on Monday. I am working with Chanel the whole weekend which is rather exciting, last week i caught a glimpse of all the new collections being released this year…ohh they look amazing! I am also looking forward to being whisked away to our Villa next week. I can't wait to escape to Spain and forget about University and everything for a while and have some sunshine in my life…whoop!

There is nothing i love more than after a stressful week than lighting a few candles, de-stressing and having a good ol' pampering session with a handful of my favourite beauty products. I have a rather large candle collection with brands such as Yankee Candles, Bath and Body Works, Lily-Flame, Neom Organics, Primark and so on. Recently i was having a little browse through Primark and came across these Deluxe Candles. I have used endless amounts of Primark candles in the past and they are a favourite as they are super affordable, smell great and look pretty…what more would you want. 

Primark Deluxe Candles - £2

As you can see from the pictures above i had started to burn the White Jasmin and Lily candle before taking a photo…i know tut tut bad blogger of me haha! These photos were taken a few weeks ago and i have since repurchased each candle a few times and made sure to stock up, i like them that much. When i purchased them the first time i believe there were three different variations, the White Jasmin and Lily, Red Berries and Orchid and a third which i think had coconut in the formulation which reminded me of being on a vacation! 

White Jasmin & Lily

The White Jasmin and Lily candle has a very light, clean and fresh scent. 

Red Berrie & Orchid

The Red Berries and Orchid candle has a very warming scent. 

Both candles have such a gorgeous aroma once lit and literally fill the room with sweet relaxing scents. I love burning them alone but also combine to create the ultimate room filling aroma. There is not a precise size on the jar, however comparison wise they come in bigger than the mini Yankee Candle jars so you are getting a good amount of product in the jars. The packaging is very simplistic and pretty to look at. I have saved some of the jars to depot for storage in my new beauty closet when the building and extension business is finished at the Meola household. I think with a pretty ribbon and some diamonds they would make gorgeous makeup and brush holders! What do you think?

They claim to have a 30 hour burning time which i think is pretty spot on. I burnt my White Jasmin and Lily candle pretty much two days straight over a weekend and there was still a good amount left in the bottom. What i really liked was how the flame burns the entire product from the sides as it gradually goes down the jar, so you are not left with a big whole in the middle with wasted product. For £2 i think this is a great little product and i will definitely be repurchasing more in the future.

I hope you all enjoyed this post, i would love to know your thoughts on the candles. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment…they really make my day!

What do you think of these candles? Would you give them a try?

Lots of love

  3. These sound lovely! I've smelt these a lot in Primark (they smell amazing) but I've always thought that they may not be very good when you burn them, after reading you review though I will have to pick a couple up. Like you said aswell they would make great makeup brush holders afterwards!

  20. I have been spoiled by strong smelling candles so I was disappointed with the primark candles. They do indeed smell lovely. I tried the red berries and orchid one but found the smell too mild to buy again.
