I am a big, big fan of candles and there is not one room in my home that a candle has not found its way into. I find them so relaxing and if they have a sweet, delicate fragrance then all the better. When The White Company asked if I would like to try out a candle from their new range, that would come in a lovely ceramic container and which was reusable after the candle had burned out, I of course could not wait to be inspired. The candle I received was their Fresh Thyme Candle It really is beautiful to look at, and the simple, effective packaging from The White Company I always find pleasing to the eye.

The design of the ceramic candle holder being quite simple, is yet oh so chic. There is a ceramic lid too which keeps all that pesky dust out.   

The scent is so invigorating and yet at the same time relaxing. I wish you could scratch 'n sniff as it is such a beautiful fragrance. With fresh thyme, eucalyptus, lavender and rosemary, it really is as The White Company say, like having your very own herb garden in the home.

So, what could one do with the pretty ceramic holder once the candle has burned out? I thought of these little ideas...

For one of my little orchid's....

How apt to keep candles inside a candle holder....

The choices are endless. Being a candle handmade in the U.K. using high quality wax for a long, clean and even burn and with 40 hours burn time, this really is one luxurious candle that brings an air of sophistication to any home. We all love it in the Poppins house :)

Of course I couldn't leave a post talking about The White Company without sharing a little photograph of Master Poppins who was in their Christmas catalogue last year, oh yes, we are big fans here.... 


Disclosure: We were provided with one Fresh Thyme Candle for the purposes of this blog post.      


  1. I have often wondered what their candles are like. It sounds really lovely. Your little boy looks lovely (well, what we can see of him!)
