My friend Sophie and I have an abiding love for the scent of rose so our presents to one another pretty much consist of a back and forth of a variety of rose-related goods (never had Yardley’s English Rose EDP been so appreciated). We have met with criticism from some camps – there are those who seem to think a whiff of rose recalls grannies.
If you fall into the latter camp, you may well be immune to the charms of Pacifica’s Persian Rose Candle. Let me try to tempt you with this – at £15, it is cheaper than most good quality soy wax candles on the market and will therefore not pollute your innards. The scent itself is light, not cloying, and according to aromatherapists a sniff of rose has a calming effect on the body and mind.
That’s Sophie’s next birthday present sorted, then.
