Set in the outskirts of Glasgow, Shearer Candles has been in business since 1897. Whether you want jar candles or tin candles, pillar candles or special occasion candles or even diffusers and candle holders, you will find a large and excellent selection of products on Shearer's website. And the best bit is that all products are reasonably priced. I tried out 3 candles from Shearer Candles and here are my views on them.
The Amber Noir Jar Candle(£7.00) is one of their best sellers and has a burn time of 35 hours. I absolutely fell in love with the design and the fragrance. The black coloured jar with gold text is a lovely decorative piece on its own. The fragrance is gorgeous - an exotic blend of tuberose, violets and amber. It made the house smell so wonderful. If you love classy fragrances, then this hand poured Amber Noir candle is for you.
The tin candles from Shearer Candles are lovely. They are a perfect size for travel. You can easily carry it with you on your travels and the lid keeps the scent locked in. The fragrance range is amazing. You will find scents as diverse as Hollyberry and Clove to Watermelon and Persian Lime. I tried Egyptian Cotton(£7.00) which has sweet floral notes of rose, jasmine and carnations with just the perfect touch of clove. What a lovely fragrance! With a burn time of around 40 hours, this one is perfect for use in the kitchen or while travelling.
I am a fan of anything with Coconut in it and the Vanilla and Coconut Silver Jar Candle(£12.00) from Shearer Candles is no exception. It is a lovely blend of Vanilla and Coconut. The silver jar is so darn beautiful; I spent the first five minutes just admiring the jar. The silver mirror jar is stunning and gorgeous to say the least. And need I say about the fragrance - its warm, sweet and heavenly. A taste of tropical paradise. Love it.
Final Word: The range of candle fragrances is amazing and the packaging is lovely and tasteful as well. I already have selected the next lot of candles that I am going to pick up from Shearers website. These candles would make wonderful gifts as well - if your mom loves candles, then these are a good gifting option for Mother's Day.
