Review: M&J London English Summer Candle


My birthday was way back in March and as part of a wishlist I prepared, I said that I would love to open  up a candle - English Summer by M&J London* to be precise.


Jennifer McNabb, the owner of M&J London, reached out to me and said they would like to make my birthday wish come true and so I did indeed get to open this beautiful candle on the day!


M&J London launched a range of candles in 2012 promising Ethical Luxury. Recycled and reusable glass tumblers, packaging that uses vegetable-based ink and donations from each candle to Eaves, a London-based charity which helps support vulnerable women at risk of homelessness, sexual violence, trafficking, and those exiting prostitution.

M&J use soya wax and essential oils to create unique collection of candles - Andalusian Romance, El Captain, English Summer, Left Bank Martini, Samadhi and Sweet Beginnings.
It was hard to pick one but with the promise of Summer around the corner, and Wimbledon soon to begin, I just had to pick English Summer!

"Cucumbers, mint, champagne – all the freshness and brightness of the English Summer, full of picnics and weddings and sundresses and weekend rambles to country pubs! There is the anticipation of popping a cool bottle of Champagne, of the warm sunshine and long evenings that make the season so special. Tennis, cricket and other traditions that summer brings each year – green grass and fresh linen and the feeling of dipping your toes in the sea! Nothing else feels like an English Summer."

Cucumber, Mint and Champagne just shouted out to me and the scent really delivered. I absolutely adored lighting this beauty, it's fragrance filled my living room on those warm summer evenings and just added an element of luxury.

Thank you so much to Jennifer for sending me a little piece of heaven!

*Candle sent as a gift. It was my pleasure to review it for you!

  1. These candles have been on my wish list for some time, the fragrances are unusual compared to other brands I'm aware of. The combination of Cucumber, Mint and Champagne sounds very inviting :)
