After the rainiest weekend we’ve had for such a long time, I think I’m now resigned to the appearance of autumn. That’s it isn’t it? Summer is gone, so long sunshine. But it DOES mean that we can rejoice with the advent of more home fragrance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m entirely at peace with lighting candles no matter what the time of year. It’s just so much more cosy in autumn. And I have some lovely treats from Farrar & Tanner up for grabs in this week’s Insta-giveaway.
Before we go any further, let’s introduce this very stylish business. Farrar & Tanner are an online purveyor of luxury bespoke gifts for men. Rejoice! Especially with that inevitable gifting time of year looming large around the corner. I NEVER know what to get Pete plus it’s his birthday in December too so it’s like a concentrated double-whammy of creative failure.
What I love about Farrar & Tanner is not just the high-end element to all the items they source and stock but also their personalisation service. From their central Cheltenham location their skilled team of on site craftsmen deliver a finely engraved or embossed product finished to personal specifications for an unforgettable experience. What a treat, right?
Now, they had lots of lovely things that I’ve now earmarked for Pete but for the purposes of a feature/giveaway I’m afraid to say that you’ll never see him in this hallowed walls. So instead I chose a candle and diffuser set because there is never enough home fragrance IMHO. Even as I write this Maddie has come back from another walk smothered in fox poo so there we have it. Candles at the ready.
The stockist that Farrar & Tanner use for their candles and diffusers is Yorkshire-based Isaac Jacobs. I think you’ll agree they sound very enticing:
Artisan candle manufacturers Isaac Jacobs produce an exceptional range of natural wax candles in the heart of the Yorkshire Pennies. Developed and designed with extensive detail over long periods, Isaac Jacobs’ candles capture a striking blend of the finest fragrances and essential oils, producing delicious aromas contained in modern, urban jars. Every aspect of these candles is crafted with a special Isaac Jacobs touch. From the long burning designer wick to the unique blend of ingredients selected for their green credentials, these candles are an unforgettable way to enhance the home.
I’ve received one of the Black Amber candles and a Bergamot and Black Tea reed diffuser, both of which are delicious fragrances for the men in your life. Warm and heady, they evoke autumnal walks and getting cosy round the fire, two things I can very definitely get on board with. Pete really does love our home smelling fresh so long as it’s not a clinical ‘cleaning product’ smell or ‘too much like old ladies’ so Isaac Jacobs for Farrar & Tanner is a true winner.
They’ve also kindly offered my Instas a set of your choice so read on to find out how:
