Timeless Candles: A Leading Light In Affordable Luxury
I love coming home and lighting candles. Not only is the light calming, I also love the vast array of scents which are now available to transform my home.
My problem: with the more expensive brands that I love, I’m afraid to light the candles and see my cash literally go up in flames! I have two which have sat on my bookcase for two years! God knows what they smell like now.
That’s why I have fallen in love with Timeless Candles. Timeless Candles are the brainchild of Liana Mullen – a trained beauty therapist and aromatherapist who ran a successful beauty salon for over 20 years.
Liana spotted a gap in the market for a candle that burned efficiently but oozed luxury, all at an affordable price, so she worked with a Scottish supplier to devise the Timeless range, with great success.
Not only do the candles look elegant and classy; they also smell good enough to eat.
Liana kindly invited me down to her pop-up shop on Hyndland Road in Glasgow’s West End to look at her candle collection and learn more about the products.
That in itself was a treat as she was so passionate about the ingredients, aromas and packaging; just entering the shop was a welcoming experience.
I explained to Liana that suffering from cancer means when I get home, I just like to switch off and relax and she advised me of the products which were best suited for doing this. With her aromatherapy background, I felt I was in good hands.
In the end, I went for the black plum and pomegranate scent – rich, fruity and delicious and a dream to have burning at the end of the day.
Liana kindly gifted me the 230g Ice White version of the candle, which retails at £28 – amazing value as it lasts for ages.
I also bought a smaller version, 80g at £13 for my mum, which she loves.
Timeless also have a range of gorgeous body lotions and Infusion kits in scents ranging from Jasmine and Thyme to Bayberry and Rose – there’s something for everyone.
I will be stocking up for Christmas as the candles are the gift that keeps on giving. If you fancy giving them a try, you can find out more at timelesscandles.co.uk
