Capri Mercury

This post goes out to all you candle fans, I know there are heaps of you!

One good thing about this snowy weather we're getting at the moment means it gives us an excuse to shop...I've already taken advantage, a beautiful (faux) fur headband from Sweaty Betty  and this gorgeous scented candle from Anthropologie.
If snow isn't a good excuse to get all cosy at home with a onsie, chocolate covered pretzels and a good scented candle, I don't know what the heck is!

Any of you who have ever ventured into Anthropoligie will know how absolutely devine it smells in there. On Sunday, we managed to sniff out the culprit... Capri Mercury in 'Volcano'.

This, my dears, is by far the best candle I have ever burnt. It's done a lovely job of filling our whole house (yup, the whole house from one candle) with it's gorgeous scent of 'tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons, and limes, redolent with lightly exotic mountain greens'. Yum!

I also love that it comes in this beautiful glass jar. When it's finally all burnt down and finished, that will be a very sad day, but I'm planning on re-using it for tea-lights, or perhaps as a make up brush holder in my bathroom. Oh, and we'll definitely be replacing it with another one!

It was £22, which may seem like a lot for some of you, but I cannot stress enough what a lovely smell it is and how much it relaxes me. So worth it.

Have you ever tried any candles from Anthropologie? What are your favourite scented candles this winter?


  1. This sounds lovely. I've never smelt theirs but at chistmas time, I love Yankee Candles christmas cookie, was so yummy xxx

  2. I usually go for Yankee candles but would like to try one of these ones, sounds so good! I use my empty candles as brush holders too haha xx

  3. I really want to try some Anthropologie candles but there isn't a store near me :( I might just risk it and order offline without smelling them first!

  4. I want to try one of the Anthropologie candles! I bet they're worth the splurge, I love Yankee and I'm prepared to pay £20 for one of those!

  5. I love scented candles, they definitely help me through the crappy winter months! x

  6. Sounds like it smells so yummyyyyy! I think candles are those things which if you are in to them, you will pay a lot of money for them!

    I would love it if you guys would check out my blog! I would love some feedback!!


  7. I love scented candles but I fear this one might be a little bit too strong for my little bedroom! I adore the packaging though, its stunning! xxx


  8. Ahh I'm totally loving candles atm! Very jealous, this one sounds lovely. I didn't realise Anthropologie was in the UK.

  9. I adore Anthropologie and bought their Frosted Maple candle just before Christmas for a rather decent price of £16. This candle is absolutely gorgeous and smells just like maple syrup without the calorie count, best of all it too manages to fill the whole house.

    I think Capri Mecury could possibly be my next Anthropologie purchase.

    Check out my blog post on the Frosted Maple candle on www.cagneyandlace.com

  10. I love yankee candles myself but I am not really sure whether I would spend that much on a candle because their not really me! <3
    Lovely post though! <3
    Lots of love from

  11. I love pretty candles, they look gorgeous, and this sounds like it smells lovely :)! xx

  12. This sounds amazing, and the packaging is gorgeous too! I haven't tried any candles from Anthropologie but they always have such unique things... this sounds like a great find :)

  13. £22 seems a bargain for what looks to be a huuuge pot! I adore 'posh' scented candles, you're truly right about the scent filling the entire house.. does this come anywhere near to the quality of something like Jo Malone or Diptyque?

    The only good thing about winter is definitely cozy nights in!
