Malin + Goetz Dark Rum Scented Candle review

I'm a bit of an addict when it comes to scented candles.  I always have one on the go in my living room and I love a good browse through the candle section in TK Maxx to stock up every few weeks.

Malin + Goetz are an American brand that offer a wide range of skin and body care products who also make some cracking scented candles. I had a sniff of their range at a recent press day and was drawn to the interesting scent combinations they've created - mojito,  tobacco and dark rum for example.

Malin + Goetz Dark Rum scented candle

The dark rum scent is a really unusual one. It doesn't smell like rum to me but instead is a slightly smokey, slightly spicy fragrance that scents the whole room. It's pretty exotic but I like it! For me it's the perfect autumnal scent - I will be buying another of these when the weather starts to turn and imagine myself sat in front of a log fire with a cheeky rum in hand.

The candles are made from a mix of natural beeswax, soy and vegetable waxes, and contain about 15% eau de toilette (dark rum has 16%) as the fragrance.

Admittedly they aren't cheap at £37 for a 260g candle,  but this should burn for around 60 hours and would make a lovely gift (for you or someone else!). Mine is a travel sized version which is super cute, although I can't see this on sale online at the moment.

You can find Malin + Goetz in Liberty, Space NK and ASOS. I definitely recommend having a sniff next time you're in one of those stores and seeing which of their exotic scents takes your fancy.
