I think a lovely scent goes a long way and candles are always a perfect gift for any occasion. But even more so if the strength of the smell is bold and strong as it’s a perfect way to come home and set an ambience. These rewined candles are repurposed wine bottle candles with scents that mimic the flavours and aromas found in your favourite wine. How ideal!
