***This is a gifted post but all thoughts are my own**
I’m a huge candle fan – since summer has forlornly waved farewell I’ve lit candles pretty much every evening at home in the hope that I can bring about some Hygge comfort, ready for the dark and trying winter nights. When candle brand Sjofn got in touch regarding a luxury candle collaboration I just had to say yes!

Before I’d even opened the packaging of my No. 1 Scented Candle I could already smell the gorgeous floral notes that the product description promised – there’s a real hint of spring which is all-encompassing, yet not overpowering. The candle came in a lovely green box (no plastic to be seen!) that helped it to come across as a luxury product despite the affordable price (£12 per candle at the time of review).
The candle itself is white and held in a beautiful glass jar, frosted and green with the Sjofn logo in copper at the front. It looks stunning as a decor piece, and I felt it looked right at home as an autumn candle, perfect for those chilly evenings where you want to get cosy. The jar itself is sturdy and of excellent quality, making it easy to carry around if needed without it being too hot to handle.
The scent was subtle but relaxing whilst lit, and just having it on a shelf or other surface when unlit means you’ll still be able to enjoy that floral aroma. Sometimes I find scented candles like Yankee Candle and other mainstream brands can smell manufactured or almost plasticky (and I even get migraines from some of them), yet Sjofn’s No 1 Scented Candle was calming and felt natural. The company’s candles are vegan, non-toxic, and made of long-lasting soy, meaning that you can feel safe using them without worrying about paraffin or any other dodgy substances.
I have a habit when it comes to candles of going for quantity over quality, so one problem I encounter is that they burn so quickly – especially when I’m lighting so many in the winter months! Sjofn promise around 45 hours of burn time with this candle, making it well worth the money and a much more sustainable product overall.
My No. 1 Scented Candle takes the prime spot on my candle shelf now – it’s such a gorgeous fragrance and brings a real positive vibe to my already Hygge living room. Both classy and sophisticated, this candle by Sjofn makes the perfect gift for candle lovers, and I’m excited to see what other luxury scents they bring out in the future.
