Holidays are a way to spend some quality time with your loved ones. Myself and Mr.H make it a point to head out on at least 3 holidays a year. Holidays(whether it is a fortnight long trip or a week away some place nice) always create precious family memories. A couple of our recent holidays which have been very enjoyable and will remain in our memory for a long time are our holidays to France and Egypt. Long after we returned back home, smelling incense at a friend's place transported me back to the Khan el-Khalili market in Cairo. The incense fragrance was a powerful reminder of the wonderful holiday we had in Egypt. One whiff of that scent was enough for me to recall all my beautiful holiday memories.

You must be wondering, why I am going on about my holidays and what connection it has with the product that I am featuring today. Well, without any further ado, let me introduce you to Aroma Holiday Candles. Aroma Holiday candles are English handmade luxury scented candles that transport your home with sensual candle fragrances to lost moments in time. All fragrances in the Aroma Holiday range are based on the founder's travels around the globe. These candles will stimulate fond thoughts of past holidays, romantic nights or long forgotten childhood memories. The candles are named after cities(London, Rome, New York etc.) If you have travelled to these cities, you will be able to relate to the fragrance. If you have not travelled to the said cities, it will give you an idea of what to expect! I was recently sent two fragrances from the Aroma Holiday range - Paris and Rome. Not having been on a holiday in the past few months, I thought these would be perfect to carry on the holiday vibe at home. Something like a "Stay-cation".

Both the candles have an approximate burn time of 50 hours and are made with 100% natural Soy wax and lead free single wick. The candles are presented in a stylish Aroma Holiday destination gift box. Of the two candles I received, I was looking forward to the Paris one as I have been to Paris and have loads of memories associated with the place. The candle has fragrance notes of Mimosa, Geranium & Parisian Rose and is simply fabulous. It has a sweet floral fragrance that is subtle yet envelops the whole room. The fragrance transported me to the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur. I remembered the hours we spent at the Basilica and in the neighbourhood, walking on the cobbled streets, looking at the work of portrait sketchers and caricaturists. The candle perfectly captures the spirit, the passion and romance associated with Paris.

The other candle, 'Rome', has fragrance notes of Orange, Lemon, Thyme & Italian White Wine. What a 'citrusy' scent! Even in this dreary weather, the scent succeeded in transporting me to a lovely summer afternoon. Wine, lemonade, bowls filled with citrus fruits, ice-cream and lemon cake - these were some of the things that came to my mind when the candle scent wafted through my home. The candle gave a subtle zesty fragrance to the surroundings. Loved this fragrance more than the 'Paris' one.
