Burn Baby Burn..
I had the chance to catch up with Gill Sinclair, co-founder of victoriahealth.com at the recent Monty PR press day at Liberty. She saw me lurking beside the glittering display of candles from the A-List's favourite brand Votivo. Votivo candles are loved by the likes of Madonna and P Diddy (ie the uber-rich and uber-famous). Loved for their ability to scent a room exquisitely, there's a new Christmas Collection to lust after as the nights grow longer. Actually, who needs the excuse of long nights and cold weather? These beauties are worth splashing out on simply because they smell divine and will make you the envy of Martha Stewarts the world over. Votivo candles were previously only available to buy in the UK via Liberty, however, victoriahealth.com have snapped them up, so get clicking! Gill confided that most of her candle deliveries end up being squirelled off to her own home. If Gill Sinclair is burning Votivo candles then you know they're a winner - this woman is like a walking beauty bible. Her favourites from the new Christmas Collection are the Red Currant and Christmas Sage candles. Consider going native with the Christmas Sage candles - Native American Indians burn sage sticks to clear their homes of negative energy. I can't vouch for whether this works on annoying in-laws and relatives but you can always try! Alternatively, have a very berry Christmas with the Red Currant candles. They're a gorgeous festive red and also double as the perfect gift.
Votivo Christmas Candles are £34 and available from www.victoriahealth.com
