If there's one thing you've learnt from reading LW over the years it's my passion for home fragrances. I'd love nothing more than to be able to whip up my own wax creations one day. Recently I was introduced to Laura Thomas Linens, home to high quality cotton bedding and hand poured candles. LT started when Laura was living in New Zealand and struggling with the lack of high-quality crisps white linens. Now based back in Scotland Laura Thomas has one mission to be the leading online bedding and homeware brand.

A week ago one of Laura's wonderful creations landed on my doorstep. The candles are a fairly new addition to the range with Laura taking the time to hand pour each and every candle herself. Every candle is made with soy wax, essential oils, textile grade cotton wick and high grade fragrance oils. Since Laura uses Soy Wax for all her candles this means that they burn much slower and cleaner than candles that contain paraffin wax. Currently there are three scented candles to decide over; Flower, Lavender and Lime & Basil. I also came across a festive candle while scouring through Instagram, I'm hoping it returns this Christmas for both personal use and gifting. Each fragrance is available in two sizes, 6oz and 8.5oz while keeping to the same simplistic glass jars for an elegant touch to every room.

Flower was inspired by Laura's time in New Zealand, Laura wanted a perfume to match that of her old garden which was home to orange, lemon and grapefruit trees. With Rose, Neroli and Lemon blossom oils drifting through the room you're transported to tranquillity every burn. With such awful weather in the UK it's been the perfect scent to have while transitioning into 'summer'. At least I can feel some what summery despite the continuous downpours. Laura kindly sent over the 8.5oz of Flower which retails for just £19, £4 more than the 6oz. The larger of the candles have a burn time of 30+ hours while the 6oz have 25+ hours, great value for such a luxurious candle. So far I've burnt my candle only for a few hours though in those few it burned equally and proved to be clean when it came to blowing out the candle - just what you expect from a 100% soy wax. It's no wonder Laura Thomas candles have been recognised as some of the best candles in the UK.
