Luxury Xmas Gift Idea: Milana Signature Candle in Drive In Romance review

Sunday, 15 December 2013

Candles are always a popular Christmas gift, with the more luxurious and higher-end ones gracing the wishlists of many.  So if you're looking for a truly luxurious candle to give this year and one that's also reasonably priced, read on.

Milana Candles were love at first sight.  When I was introduced to their website by Milana's founder, Tracey, I was immediately enthralled by the chic monochrome packaging and enticing scent descriptions.  All of the candles are named and fragranced after songs which have inspired, motivated and empowered Tracey and others on their journeys through life.  Thus, a marriage between perfumery and music bloomed, and became Milana Candles.  Each candle is individually handpoured in the UK and are made with 100% natural soy wax, meaning that they burn cooler and cleaner than cheaper paraffin alternatives, with no toxins or black smoke.  To perfume the candles, the finest essential and fragrance oils are specially blended and added to the wax. 

I was very kindly sent a Milana Signature Candle in Drive In Romance which features a unique blend of Bergamot, Cassis, Apricot and Rose and results in a mesmerizing, floral fragrance which smells just heavenly.  It's completely different to the usual scents I go for and is one that would be equally suited to a living/lounge area as well as a bathroom for a luxury pampering session.  The scent fills a room quickly and is long lasting which is always the mark of an excellent, quality candle IMO.  Wrapped in tissue paper and packaged in a sturdy black box, this would make a beautiful gift for anyone who loves candles and home items, as well as those who love luxury British goods.

Candle burning tip: The first time you burn your Milana candle, please make sure it burns right to the edge of the glass - this will allow the wax to set the memory for future burns and prevent tunnelling. Keep the wick trimmed to 0.5cm and trim before each lighting.

Milana's Signature Candles* are 1 cotton wick, burn for approx 40 hours and retail for £25.  Larger 3 wick candles are also available and the whole range can be viewed and purchased via

Will you be purchasing any luxury candles this year?
