One of our favourite things to do at House of Coco, on these colder nights, is get cosy at home and light a nicely scented candle. Fabulous Candles London combines a passion for design and luxury products and we are a huge fan.
We spent some time with them to find out more…

In December 2014. There was no candles on the market that smelt really strong looked luxurious for yet a price in which you don’t mind burning them as they are affordable.
