Although beauty products are, and always will be, my number one love, candles are a close second. I just love scented candles, and the ritual of relaxing whilst having a scented candle flicker away in the evenings.
The Boujee Bougies Gilt Luxury Scented Candle was kindly gifted to me, and it’s genuinely one of the most incredible candles I’ve ever smelt, and I can’t believe I’d never heard of Boujee Bougies before, until very recently.
“If the walls in a church could talk, what would they say? Would they speak in smoky whispers of frankincense? What secrets could be found beneath the patina of ages on cold stone floors? Would they reveal hidden truths about ourselves; of our destiny, our origin?
Gilt explores these mysteries, bringing together ancient resins, spices and woods, and shrouds them in a veil of gold. A scent that captures the quiet, contemplative nature of rituals seen through smoke, and a touch of guilt. Light the candle. We are ready for your confession.“
The Boujee Bougies Gilt Luxury Scented Candle is available in two different sizes; Mini for £25, and a Large size for £55. The mini version contains 60g and burns up to 20 hours, and the size I have, the Large, contains 220g and burns up to 50 hours.
This candle is housed within a luxurious black, glossy glass jar with white 100% natural wax. I love the brand’s tagline; “flamboyant luxury candles for the discerning nose“, and their candles are all said to be inspired concepts that challenge what home fragrance can be. All of the candle fragrances are composed by Boujee Bougie’s in-house perfumer and compounded in Grasse, France.
The fragrance name of this candle is Gilt, and the idea of it having a church-inspired scent, with whispered confessions, incense smoke and gold leaf is so unique. It smells absolutely incredible, and genuinely does have an authentic, beautiful church-like scent.
Even when sitting on my table out of the box, and unlit, the Boujee Bougies Gilt Luxury Scented Candle can be smelt in the whole room; it’s that potent, and it becomes even more potent when lit.
I’ve tried a lot of luxury candles lately from brands like Nest Fragrances, Bella Freud, Diptyque and Boy Smells, and genuinely, none of them compare to the Boujee Bougies Gilt Luxury Scented Candle.
It’s smokey, spicy and warm, and I love it so much, it’s going to be my ‘Christmas Day’ candle. I don’t know about you, but I love to use a special candle on Christmas Day, and I can’t think of a more perfect candle fragrance for Christmas day than the Boujee Bougies Gilt Luxury Scented Candle.
