Timothy Dunn London Oud Home Candle

I love luxury candles and I have a big collection of various scents, but... 'Oud' by Timothy Dunn London definitely stands out from the rest of my stash :) It is inspired by the 'majesty of ancient Persian cities and the intense heat of the Middle Eastern desert' and it smells like a luxurious oriental palace. Simply beautiful!

The top notes include black pepper, saffron and dark amber, followed by  cedarwood, sandalwood, neroli, frankincense, spiced fruit teas, patchouli and Oud - a precious natural oil from north east India. It is an interesting and almost intoxicating scent and it will make your home smell absolutely beautiful. It's woody, oriental, spicy, luxurious and also a little bit masculine. Loooovely!

The candle is presented in an elegant black jar and comes in a black gift box. With the 210g size, you will be able to enjoy approximately 40h of burn time. 

I must admit - I am really impressed with this candle and the intensity of the scent. If you like strong oriental notes, you will absolutely love it. If you prefer fresh, floral blends, you should have a look at the range presented in white jars, including Grapefruit & Bergamot, Lotus Blossom & Tuberose and more. 

Oud is also available as a Luxury Candle (345g, £42.00) and a Reed Diffuser (195ml, £45.00).
You can buy it from Harrods, Fenwick, Liberty and online from
