Neom Contentment Candle review

"Contentment: A familiar blackcurrant scent that in fact comes from part of the fragrant South African buchu plant. This is combined with spicy nutmeg and warming ginger that works in rain or shine to make you feel simply content.A moment of contentment, of something that feels familiar and reassuring. A comforting scent to surround yourself with if you're feeling tired, overworked or just overawed. A scent that makes you feel you're home."

 I never expected to feel like this about a candle, but my experience with it has been incredible and emotional. I feel like it's been made especially for me and when I read the description it said exactly what I wanted to say about it.
As soon as I opened the Contentment candle it brought back the most precious childhood memories - playing in my grandmum's garden full of blackcurrant bushes. Oh my god... It is amazing, what a scent can do!
When I smell blackcurrants, I feel like I am home, I feel happy, CONTENT and relaxed. I asked my younger sister about this scent and she feels exactly the same as me and her memories are very similar. We can't stop talking about it and sniffing the candle. It is magical. Contentment is the most beautiful, warming scent.
The scent of blackcurrants comes from a South African Buchu plant and once I light the candle I start noticing notes of Ginger and Nutmeg and it is a gorgeous combination. 

I absolutely love this candle. I found a perfect scent and I want my home to be filled with it every single day.
 It makes me happy and content and words cannot fully describe how I feel about it.  

I reviewed another NEOM candle (Rebalance) previously and you can find out more about it here.

"All Neom candles are made using only vegetable wax and pure essential oils rather than synthetic fragrances so they burn without releasing harmful pollutants, toxins or soot. They work as powerful holistic treatments as you breathe in the scented air so it is best to burn them for between 2-4 hours at a time. Each candle has 3 wicks and burns for up to 50 hours (30% longer than standard premium candles)"

  2. Wow. I wish you could put scents in a blog post over the internet, I'm so intruiged to smell this for myself now after such a stunning review!

  3. I heard that neom candles are awesome. You're burning essential oils so it's better than other candles. I want to try them but they are not readily available in Canada.

  4. That sounds absolutely lovely! I have always wanted to try Neom candles, I can't really justify dropping that much money on a candle but oh how I will lust after this until I can...
