Scented candles are one of my favourite things. I am somewhat of a candle horder, I have spent loads of money and tried so many high end cult scented candles like Diptyque, Cire Trudon and Astier Villatte, but then I came across iKOU candles. So the story goes like this, I walked into a dinner party at my friends house and was instantly mesmerized by the scented candle labelled “De-Stress” burning at the table, I felt like I was in a fancy spa and like the name suggests the scent instantly relaxed me. Since then I have been hooked!
iKOU are based in the world heritage listed Blue Mountains in New South Wales in Australia and their scented candles are 100% natural and hand-poured. They blend their candles according to the principles of Aromacology: the study of scent and the powerful effect it has on our emotions, iKOU are also guaranteed 100% paraffin-free, vegan and GM free. They have an excellent range of scents like Tuberose, Sandalwood Amber and Pure Lavender but my all time favourite is the De-Stress range, with the oil burner wax melts and oil topper in the same range. Anyone who loves the feeling of being in a relaxing spa will LOVE these beautiful scented candles.
