A very attractive candle with a rustic feel and a nice scent.I also really like the ethical enterprise behind them. Unfortunatly mine came smashed first time around but they are re-sending a new box.

I have ordered this twice now, as gifts for two different people. They make really lovely gifts, the look brilliant and high quality, and smell lovely. The recipients of them really liked them and the fact they were helping people in poverty.
