Tocca Marrakesh Vanilla Tabak candle

Tocca candle in the box it came in
Tocca is a brand I had never heard of until I stepped into Space NK in December for a spot of Christmas shopping. 
My mum wanted to treat me to something special for Christmas, and I knew I wanted to add a luxury candle to my collection as I love burning candles and wax tarts in my room and my stock was running a little low.

When I spied the gorgeous trio of Tocca candles in Space NK I knew I had to have one for myself, the packaging is just so pretty and the scents are divine!

After sniffing the three Christmas scents they had on offer I had to go for Vanilla Tabak because it’s just such a gorgeous, luxurious scent! 
I usually hate vanilla scents, but this only has a hint of it, and the main scent I get from it is a comforting sweet honey. 
Again, I usually steer clear of sweet scents, they’re normally way too overpowering for me, but this one is just gorgeous and neither too strong or too weak.

I also fell in love with this candle because of the beautiful design. I usually go for lighter coloured candles, so I really love that this one is a deep blacky navy. 
The jar is also made of a thick glass and the shape reminds me of the pleats of a skirt.

The burn time for this is around 40 hours, and as I usually burn my candles for 4 hours each time, this should last me for 10 days worth of burning.
I wouldn’t normally treat myself to a luxury candle, but as I enjoy burning them so much, it was nice to go for something a little bit more expensive.
The only thing I regret is not picking another one up in the Space NK sale!
