I think it's fair to say I'm obsessed with candles like pretty much any mid-twenties blogger, I am always on the hunt for my perfect candle brand that smells incredible and doesn't leave smoke or soot everywhere in my house. For me, there truly is nothing better than coming in after a long day, lighting a bunch of candles and relaxing with a face mask and a cup of tea. Thankfully Owen Drew Luxury Candles has come to my rescue with their incredible (and house friendly) smelling candles and room sprays.

Who Are Owen Drew?
Owen Drew Luxury Candles have been around since 2016 and let me tell you they have gone from strength to strength since they were created! A fellow candle addict, Owen noticed that the candles he was buying were damaging his beautiful house from all the smoke and soot they were giving off when burnt. A lot of candles on the market are petroleum-based paraffin wax which is often heavily dyed and scented with synthetic scents which are bad for not only your health but also your home! This is where Owen Drew Luxury Candles was born and he has built such an incredible company since starting.

All of his candles and wax melts are made from undyed soy wax with only the best natural ingredients making all of his products vegan-friendly, all of his candles also come with the ever so loved wood wick. If you haven't heard of or had a wood wick candle, where have you been?! They are all the rage at the moment as they have that great crackle that you get with a real wood fire that's just so calming to listen to. Owen and his team spent so much time on the attention to detail for each and every product and it really pays off, all the candles are hand polished and come wrapped in tissue paper so they're all carefully packaged ready for you to use.

Whilst his hand-poured candles are stocked in shops throughout the country and online, he also used to sell his candles at special events so you could have the in-person Owen Drew experience and find out what scents were your favourite. Thankfully, he's recently opened his own flagship store on the Wirral meaning there's none of that dreaded waiting for the postman to turn up with your incredible smelling packages and you can get your hands on all his latest launches right as he launches them. Whilst he may have started creating designer inspired scents, he has now extended his range to include someone of his own creations which are just as good, if not better than the designed inspired ones!

My Experience
Whilst I have lusted after Owen Drew Luxury Candles on Instagram (if you haven't already, you need to be following them for dreamy photos of their candles!), I've always seemed to miss their events where I could go and in-person find out which was my favourite scent. However, I ran into them when I attended the Matthew O'Brien Cathedral Couture fashion show where I ended up walking away with the Mademoiselle candle and Black Orchid wax melts. Since then I've been exclusively burning my Mademoiselle candle and not only is it still going a month later but whenever I light it, it fills my house with notes of jasmine, rose and patchouli within 15 minutes. 

One of my favourite things about them (besides the wood wick which I do love) is the throw of their products. It's also not a hit you in the face scent (we all know the ones!), so if you leave the room and come back you're not completely overwhelmed by the scent. It's like you've been gently surrounded by the scent, it makes me want to have a candle burning in every room of the house. Not only do his candles scent your home beautifully (without damaging it), you also get more candle for your buck compared to other brands and for the quality of his luxury vegan candles they are only £25 each! Making them practically perfect in every way, they also make perfect gifts for friends and family.

Now you've just got the difficult choice of picking your favourite scent!
