CALMING CANDLES

Bringing stunning scents that linger long after the flame has gone out, scented candles are the perfect accompaniment to a long, hot soak in the tub, and the beauty brands have really outdone themselves this season.

From the new limited-edition Gourmand collection, the Molton Brown Vanilla & Violet candle is a sweet, floral delight, while the Jo Malone Home candle is made up of layers of lime, basil and mandarin.
