I’ve got to say, I’m a total Circa Home convert. There are so many candle brands on the market, but this one is the only one I buy for my family and friends now. Why? The fragrances are DIVINE (I have a sweet tooth so there are plenty to suit me!), the branding and packaging are beautiful; and the jar and wooden base look gorgeous and are recyclable too.
So you can imagine my reaction when I heard that the team at Circa Home have JUST launched their latest edition… 1951 Crème Brûlée!! The rich vanilla bean custard and caramelised brown sugar is inspired by 1951 – an era of sublime, yet simple sophistication. Days where baking sweet biscuits and treats was more commonplace and a time when I can imagine life just felt that little bit slower.
Circa Home’s candles and melts really do evoke warm sentimental memories from the past and this new Crème Brûlée edition is a perfect fragrance to see us through the cooler autumn months with perhaps a few recollections of our grandmothers’ baking. I’m hoping that having this scent waft through my house may even help to soften my sweet tooth!
Although if you’re anything like me and are craving a real crème brûlée right now just thinking about it, I’ve found a beautiful recipe for Salted Butterscotch Crème Brûlée (images from this recipe also below)!
All Circa Home candles are handmade in Australia using natural soy wax, high quality fragrant oils and lead-free cotton wicks. And I love that the glass jars and packaging are 100% recyclable too.
Here are some notes for those fragrance aficionados out there…!
