India Hicks Island Night Candle & Collection

India Hicks has had some lovely collections for Crabtree & Evelyn for awhile now. I have always loved the Spider Lily scents. New is the Island Night Collection. I currently have the gorgeous candle decorating my living room. It's so pretty, I can't bring myself to burn it. Yes, thats silly but true.

The candle is encased in deep blue glass and surrounded by branches of coral done in a pewter like material. It's simply stunning. Not only that but it comes in a lined Faux Shagreen box that makes a wonderful presentation. This is a gift that will get noticed.

The scent is very tropical and floral but not coconutty pineapple. Now I am sniffing the candle since as I said I haven't burned it. So I can't tell you how much throw it has etc.

I can tell you the notes:

Purple and white orchids, night-blooming jasmine, green island palms and orange blossom nectar entwined with a soft woody musk accord.

It definitely has a musky orchid scent to my nose. Very Pretty and not in your face strong.

It will bring a touch of the tropics in the house. Yes it might be more summer appropriate, but having something summery in the house to brighten winter isn't bad either.
The candle is 4x3 and sells for $ 42.00
The collection also includes a solid fragrance ( you know I need this) ,a diffuser, body lotion, body cream, milky bath and EDT.

That candle IS gorgeous, Im going to keep an eye on eBay to see if I can score one cheaper. In the meantime, I'm heading to Crabtree to smell it.

Thanks Dartzie!!
