Taylor Benfield Candles

Muddy says: We’re waxing lyrical about these gorgeously packaged, hand poured candles, with specially created scents designed to bring back those holiday vibes in a sniff. Go on, breathe it in!

Did you know that scent is one of the most powerful triggers of memory and emotion? Suzanne Taylor founded her luxury candle brand in St Albans as a means of bringing her passion for travelling to far-flung places to the good people of Hertfordshire and beyond, with each fragrance in her specially curated capsule collection evoking a particular time and place.

The six delicious scents include spicy Crimson Rose and Oud inspired by the heady fragrances of Vietnam and Bali; Summer Haze – a crisp, clean fragrance that says ‘British summer’ in candle form; and, my personal favourite, Grapefruit and Orange Blossom – one sniff takes me right back to the citrus groves of the Mediterannean, where I holidayed as a child. And who wouldn’t want to be reminded of sunnier and more exotic climes, particularly during the dull grey months? These candles are the perfect way to conquer those post-holiday blues!

There’s also intoxicating Spiced Noir, botanical Floral and Ginger and zesty Citrus and Lemongrass. They’re beautifully packaged too in oh-so-sophisticated grey, white and silver, and are available in home and travel sizes, making them perfect gifts for birthdays, Christmas, weddings and, well, yourself – go on, you deserve it!
