We are delighted to launch our new home fragrance candle today – Rose & Oud.
We are very excited about our new candle fragrance. The basis of these two oils is already a popular blend, but we have put our own recipe together for this emerging classic.
By adding a little patchouli oil it gives a rounded warmth to the soft velvet rose floral and smoky wood combination of the Rose and Oud, we have also added a light touch of jasmine and a few other oils that will for now remain between the Hares team.
The overall effect is a highly fragrant, decadent, luxurious and heady but not overpowering fragrance. It strikes a perfect balance between floral and wood and lingers subtly for a time after the flame is extinguished. It is so lovely to walk back into a room hours later where the candle has been burning and still catch the fragrance.
This candle is made from 100% rapeseed wax, which we use for all our essential oil and limited edition candles. This natural wax may be tricky to work with but it gives a such great scent throw and really clean and long burn times that it is still our wax of choice. In testing our 20cl candle burned for just over 30 hours.
If you like our Oriental Oud, Oud Noir and Moroccan Rose candles you will love this blend, all the best features of each of those candles rolled into one.
The Rose and Oud candle is one of our limited editions. The candle is in black glass and to show it off, we have wrapped the candle in red rose tissue, boxed it in a sturdy 2-part presentation gift box and added our signature ribbon and wax seal in red too. It looks very striking and makes a perfect present to give or keep for yourself.
A fabulous gift for Valentines Day, after all a candle lasts much longer than flowers and is far more fragrant!
