It's officially candle season. As temperatures get colder and Christmas shopping is now top priority, we're kicking off the festivities by lighting a new candle.
Not just any candle, a Marks & Spencer Light Up Candle.
Costing £10.99, it's arguably a steal, and comes in silver or gold – it's everything you need to add to the ambience of any room.
Scented with neroli, lime and basil, it's a fresh, zesty fragrance that's perfect for restoring balance to a busy kitchen, or simply adding a warm, relaxing glow to your bedroom.
Why we rate it
So how exactly does it light up you may ask? Well, the candle is surrounded by a gel infused with sequins.
When you light the candle, it will activate the LED lights and combined with the sequins, creates an iridescent finish.
It's uplifting scent adds to the air of relaxation and will provide a much needed bit of tranquility during an inevitably hectic Christmas period.
While we'll be ordering one ASAP to keep ourselves, it would also make a lovely gift to a new homeowner, a pick-me-up present for a friend or a fun stocking filler.
