The clocks go back on Sunday, which means we will be well and truly in lockdown mode for the cold days and long nights ahead. Meh. Except for Christmas when everyone momentarily is in a good mood. But fear not, I have something lovely to share with you including a give-away (but more on that later). First up, I’d like to introduce you to L:A Bruket.
L:A Bruket is a Scandinavian eco-friendly beauty care brand, using refined natural ingredients such as seaweed, unbleached sea salt and essential oils to not only benefit the body but relax and revive the mind. The folks behind it are Rooi Luxury Living, who sell throws, cushions and other soft furnishing. I’m in the process of redecorating my room and perusing their online catalogue is proving difficult to resist. *makes shopping list* By the way, ‘Rooi’ means cotton in Urdu and Hindi…it’s such a sweet word actually.
But back to L:A Bruket: the range features soap bars, body washes, creams, lotions, bath salts, balms and scented candles, and each one sounds like being wrapped up snuggly in cotton wool. I was kindly invited to pick one thing I’d like to try from the collection and now that the days are getting colder and the nights are drawing in faster, I gravitated towards the scented candles.
There are four unique scents available – Coriander, Grapefruit, Dark Oak and Tabac, which all sound intriguing and worlds apart from the saturated mainstream options. I opted for Tabac as the description of its ingredients really appealed to me.
The candle is packed beautifully in a minimalistic designed box and comes in a sleek design with a wooden coaster lid, engraved with the brand’s name.
Lifting it off I was met with an earthy aroma. Considering tobacco is one of the main ingredients, I thought this candle would have quite a strong smell to it. It’s a bold ingredient to marry with others but it unravels itself into a mesmerising musky affair with cedarwood and a floral blend of musk, lemon and jasmine, making this a tantalizing autumnal smell that also helps you relax and unwind.
L:A Bruket’s scented candles cost £45 and are available from https://www.rooi.com/brands/l-a-bruket with free delivery in the UK.
