Seven Seventeen - Black Oud scented candle


Seven Seventeen's wonderful range of mood-boosting, scented candles make a wonderful gift or treat for yourself. What's more, £1 from every sale of this candle is donated to CALM, helping to prevent male suicide

Thus is a sophisticated, subtly smoky unisex scent, derived from the Agar tree. The luxury plant-based candles are hand poured in England into beautiful, recycled-glass pharmacy jars and finished with cotton wicks. The jars look super-stylish displayed on your mantelpiece and can be reused as storage, displaying flowers or even for holding creams (they come with screw-top lids).

Burn time: 180ml: 50 hours.

Seven Seventeen founders Naomi Reilly and Sarah Slade are lifestyle journalists, friends and mothers of five young children between them. Their new collection of gorgeous scented candles smells and looks divine, plus it's a hit of affordable luxury that supports mothers (via donations to the PANDAS foundation) and helps you unwind once the kids are in bed – around 7.17 on a good day for Naomi and Sarah.
