Orla Kiely Candles

Recently a few new Orla Kiely candle releases came across my desk and they smell so delicious I had to tell you about them. My favorite by far is the “Fig Tree” scent–which smells full, lush, and sharply spicy. Orla Kiely brand candles fill a room nicely but not overpoweringly. Just something you can have burning without ruining your appetite or giving you a headache–but that you still notice.


Another favorite of mine is the unique “Earl Grey” fragrance. Unoffensive, classy, sophisticated, this is the PERFECT hostess gift–or any type of gift in general, because anyone who smells it is bound to like it. And the best part? They’re unlikely to have a candle that smells like this in their collection, no matter how avid the collector.



Rounding up the three is the Geranium & Myrrh scent–which is more Myrrh than Geranium, but I love a spicy candle! This one’s potentially sharp edges are rounded out by the softness of the Geranium, which keeps it from being too heady and sexy and gives it a little more class. Am I talking about candles as if they are people?

Let me know if you enjoy these small, simple reviews in the comments below! I have the opportunity to try a lot of products (not just beauty related) and while most don’t see the light of day, I figured I would start reviewing things more often rather than…well, rather than not. Please keep your feedback coming in the comments, it spurs me on and keeps me going, especially on those no-sleep-days!

    Orla Keily is the best! I love her designs so much, they’re like a new take on Marimekko. Beautiful!

      I have no idea what Marimekko is, but it sounds FABULOUS!
