Recently, I received a beautiful Magnolia candle by Designer’s Guild from Amara as a review product.
Now, as my hubbie will tell you, I adore candles and especially the scented variety. Whenever I’m at my desk in the afternoon, I have to light a candle and for the last week, I’ve been enjoying the floral scent of the one above in my office.
This particular candle is part of Designer’s Guild new Spring/Summer collection for 2012. It features a floral scent of citrus top notes with jasmine & lily, together with a base of woodland, moss and amber.
The Magnolia candle is one of ten Designer’s Guild candles that Amara sells and comes in a pretty decorated glass and lovely packaging…so lovely, that I can’t bear to throw it away!
Below is another floral-inspired candle from Designer’s Guild called Summer Flowers.
As well as scented candles, the collection also consists of bed linen, cushions and throws.
If you’ve not heard of Amara before, it was born out of an interior design based company in 2005 by Sam Hood, who’s original career was established in retail fashion.
Sam is co-owner of Amara with her husband Andrew and under her expert guidance, they have assembled a team of buyers who have produced a wonderful collection of luxury gift ideas and wedding gift suggestions.
Recently appointed as chairman of the board is Andrew Curran, co-founder of my-wardrobe.com, and he has helped secure fashion brands with the use of his existing relationships.
Amara is now the largest online stockist of Missoni Home in Europe, along with becoming a leading online supplier of luxury home accessories from such brands as Mulberry Home and William Yeoward Crystal.
So, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading today’s blog post. I’ve always admired the Designer’s Guild brand and now I’m a huge admirer of their scented candles.
If you’re looking to spruce up your home this spring or would like to buy a gift for a friend, why not take a look at Amara’s website?
They also stock products from companies I’ve featured on Flowerona, such as Bluebellgray, Emma Bridgewater and Pip Studio.
