Aubrey Bay are a luxury candle company with quality and ethical morals at the heart of their small business. All of Aubrey Bay’s products are 100% cruelty-free with no testing on animals. I found Amy and Andrew on Twitter when I first created my small business support blog and I became a fan of their brand and products immediately! Last week I purchased a product for myself and I am super impressed with how the candle has performed and sustained. I have included some ideas on how to style your new Aubrey Bay candle to give you some inspiration for your home too! Enjoy!

I opted for one of Aubrey Bay’s most popular scents, Lychee Peony and the smell is amazing. One of the main factors that put Aubrey Bay’s candles towers above the rest is the strength of the scent and how long it lasts. The use of soy wax allows the candle to hold the Lychee Peony scent for longer and disperse gradually. Even hours after I blew the candle out, my bedroom was filled with the insane flowery and fruity scent. I have received countless compliments on the smell of my bedroom since burning this candle! You can purchase Lychee Peony here. I am eager to try out some more of Aubrey Bay’s scents, I think my next purchase will be the lovely ‘Coconut Lime’ as I have heard amazing recommendations.
The Candle Aesthetic
When you purchase a candle from Aubrey Bay your candle arrives packaged in a high-quality white box with a black ribbon and their signature logo. The packaging is minimalistic but modern and elegant and it gives a luxury first impression to the brand. The candle would make the perfect birthday gift for those who love relaxing. The candle is in a 220ml frosted glass container with a metal mirrored lid. It is a very on trend product in terms of design right now. Once I have finished the candle, I have decided the packaging is so versatile I want to keep it to use to style in my room.
Ideas to Style an Aubrey Bay Candle
Aubrey Bay candles are a signature styling piece for homeware lovers and interior designers. The sophistication and modern colour scheme of the candle works beautifully in most rooms. Working in a homeware store has given me tips and inspiration on how to style your home and what colour schemes and styling are on trend at the moment. I have chosen to use this beautiful candle on my makeup dresser. I have used a minimalistic book to add height to the display and I have maintained the basic colour scheme in a modern and minimalistic styling piece. I think the candle stands out perfectly against the green in the background!
Aubrey Bay work with both ethical and sustainable products and have opted to use soy wax in their candles. Being a candle lover, I have tested many different candles and soy wax is my favourable choice as it is a non-toxic material. This means they will not release toxins into the air as they burn and the candle burns cleaner with little soot released in comparison to paraffin alternatives.
Furthermore, one of the greatest advantages to using soy wax is the slower burning time. Soy candles last considerably longer than paraffin candles. You know the saying buy cheap or buy twice? This is a massive one for candles. The difference between a good quality candle and a basic cheaper candle is insane.
The Price Tag
Aubrey Bay candles retail at twenty-five pounds and based on the quality of the product it is worth every penny. I usually go through around three to four basic candles a month costing me easily over thirty pounds. The basic candles do not compare in terms of smell, aesthetic or lasting power of Aubrey Bay’s products. The way the product has performed over this week I personally believe it will last me a month if not longer therefore from now on I am opting for quality over quantity when it comes to purchasing candles.
