Chic & Cheerful Review: Olivia Rose Ireland
If you follow my Facebook page or Instagram you may have seen last weekend that I received two absolutely gorgeous candles by a new brand called ‘Olivia Rose Ireland’.
These handmade candles smell amazing, I got ‘Midsummer’s Night’ and ‘Blackberry Sage’ – I can’t decide which one I love more, the warm musk of Midsummer’s Night or the sweetness of Blackberry Sage. They are handmade in Ireland with all natural products.
I met Eddie the creator of Olivia Rose Ireland last weekend and he told me all about the background story of how the brand came about. Basically he was sent on a shopping trip by his wife to pick up a candle in town and when he found the candle seen that it was €30 he called her to ask if this was a mistake which he was told it was not. He decided to he wasn’t spending that kind of money on a candle, he would make his own!! And thankfully he did as they are really special!!
There is a range of sizes available at very reasonable prices. The sizes are:
4.5oz (30-35 hours burning) €8
5.5oz (35-40 hours burning) €10
7oz (45-48 hours burning) €12
They have great burning on them and the scent travels so well throughout the house – I can smell it from the second I walk in the front door. Even unlit the candles give away a beautiful subtle scent.
- Pink Sugar
- White Tea & Ginger
- Midsummer’s Night
- Vanilla Spice
- Baby Cuddles
- Blackberry Sage
- Sea Breeze
- Ylang Ylang
- Strawberries & Cream
Something to please everyone!
I couldn’t recommend these more, they are my absolute favourite candles at the moment and I cannot wait to try out their new scent ‘Coconut & Lime’ when it is released.
