Scents Of Summer ...



Today on my blog I am delighted to introduce an Irish business called Max Benjamin. It's a home fragrance company owned by brothers Mark and David Van den Bergh.They named the brand after their twin nephews Max and Ben! All the products are hand produced in County Wicklow Ireland using 100% natural waxes and Italian cotton wicks.The finest essential oils are then added to produce their unique blend of fragrances.



The company sent me some gorgeous candles to sample and I only wish you could smell them on the screen as they are absolutely divine. I have a lemongrass and ginger one lighting behind me as I type, and there is an amazing fragrance wafting around me .I am also loving the French Linen Water diffuser set. It's fragrance is reminiscent of an evening on a veranda in Provence! A fabulous addition to my newly painted bedroom :)

For lots more information and pricing you can visit the website here. What I love about the brand is that they have all the packaging and fragrance of top quality products but they're kept at a very accessible price point. They would actually make a gorgeous gift for birthdays, teachers or a delightful present to bring to a summer dinner party for the hostess!


And now for the exciting part, I have this gorgeous DODICI candle up for grabs on my first ever giveaway on the blog. It has a stylish perfume infused with oils of Rosemary, Sicilean Lemon and Marjoram ...  To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is be an existing follower of my blog ,or join me by clicking the GFC on the sidebar and leave a comment in the box below letting me know you would like to enter.

  36. Oh yes, I would love to enter your giveaway, Anne! I adore candles. There is something so peaceful and beautiful about them. My friend just gave me a candle, and the scent was from something in our childhood. I can't figure it out, but you know when you smell something from your childhood, and it brings back memories? That's what happened when I smelled the candle she gave me. I would be delighted to win. I am already a follower, as you know, my sweet friend.
