Skandinavisk Lempi candle | £16 £14.29 (save £1.71)  at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This incredible candle is a Real Homes firm favourite. It has a smell that's unique to any other candle we've owned, which comes from a blend of peonies, roses, strawberries and mosses. It's anything but overpowering and is actually nice and subtle – in design and smell. I love it so much that I like to save it for special occasions, and my guests are always impressed by it, too. 

Note: the 55g version features the older packaging, which is still lovely but this is why it is so cheap. If that doesn't bother you, then why not buy it now?
