At Ralph's Orchard we relish the darker evenings and and colder weather making us hastily retreat indoors to the warmth and cosiness of our homes. What better excuse to light a candle and lose yourself in thought while gazing at the flickering shadows cast by the little flames.
We take particular delight in finding fragrances suitable for the season and have pared them down to those described in the following paragraphs.
Our 12 day advent calendar with different wax melts scents for each day was a particularly fun endeavour. Featuring our best-sellers and Christmas scents, the decision on which 12 would make the final cut took some painstaking deliberation!
So without further ado, a quick guide to our most wintry candles:
Enchanted Forest - Evoking the fresh smell of Christmas trees, this scent has strong hints of pine needles, cedar & oakmoss.
Fireside - A smoky fragrance with tones of chestnut, spicy clove bud, rich benzoin resin, balsam and saffron with a finish of Guaiacwood, tonka and leather. Really reminiscent of campfires, this is a lovely winter fragrance for staying in with a hot cuppa (and maybe planning that camping trip...for next summer).
Honey & Molten Amber - Sharp top notes of bergamot, cinnamon and lemon, a warm heart notes of clove, maple honey and smokiness give way to base notes of birch tar, dry amber, patchouli and vetiver. This fragrance is rich and deeply warming. Only cruelty free, eco friendly and vegan ingredients used.
Fig & Plum - A complex and sophisticated fragrance; Fig, Bergamot, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin and Apple notes move to Rosemary, Orange Blossom Mimosa and Rose. Settling to a base of Amber, Musk, Sandal and Cedar.
Frankincense & Myrrh - The heady smell of Christmas mass and incense; with the resin frankincense immersed in warm amber, rock rose and myrrh complimented by woody cedar, vetiver and patchouli.
Spiced Orange - The heady sentimental smell of Christmas spices, this scent has tones of orange, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. Eco friendly, vegan and cruelty free ingredients only. Hand-poured in England.
Sloe Gin - Sweet, rich and warm; plum, strawberry and raspberry and orris (delicate, sweet-floral and woody-earthy-rooty aroma) are finished with a pinch of spicy clove.
As always, only cruelty free, eco friendly and vegan ingredients are used. All of our candles and melts are hand-poured in England.
