Candle Season’s Here – Try Something Unique with Scents Unusual

I am a massive fan of candles and I have about a million of them.

The thing is, I always choose the some kind of candles. They’re always fruity and sweet, always girly.

But what if there was a candle out there completely different to any scent you’ve had in your home before yet equally as gorgeous?

I found one!

I was very kindly gifted a candle from Scents Unusual to review.

They let me choose between their two unusual candles and I chose the Cuban Tobacco & Oak one.

The product arrived in gorgeous packaging that matched the candle design itself, I was so excited to open the box and pull out the candle and diffuser.


Over on their website the candle is described as:

“Our new fragrance taking you back to sunny climes in the Caribbean or even kicking back and relaxing with the sweet sound of Jazz in the background.

A beautiful complex and calming scent.
Aromatic vintage cologne notes lead into a heart of rich sweet tobacco, warm spices & a hint of cognac. Smokey woods of oak, ebony & incense combine with dark musks to complete the fragrance.”

I’m not the best at describing scents…

but I can say that their description is very accurate and if I was good at describing scents then I would probably write something similar. It isn’t a scent I would usually have in my home, but that’s the whole point, it’s supposed to be unusual.

It does smell lovely and it is a another product I’m pleased to have found – one I probably wouldn’t have found if I wasn’t a blogger. I wanted to show the rest of you that there are products beyond your usual scents.

I wasn’t initially aware that I would be receiving a diffuser as well as the candle so it was very exciting opening the box to find the full gift set. I really do get stupidly excited over candles. There’s nothing better than a cosy day indoors on a Winter’s day with a candle or two and it’s one of the things I’m most excited for when the cold nights come.

I think this candle is a must have for all candle lovers like myself.

It’s always nice to have something unique after days of lighting the same kind of scents. It’s a scent that I can’t imagine anybody disliking and it’s very relaxing too.

What I also love most about it is how much scent there really is. I hate lighting a candle only to not be able to smell it at all. I once paid £50 for a candle and I could barely smell it!! You won’t get that with this one, even before lighting the candle the scent is so so profound.

Christmas is coming!

It’s worth considering this gift pack for a friend or family member – or even adding it to your own Christmas list!

You can get the Cuban Tobacco & Oak gift pack here for £30.

Have you every tried an unusual scented candle?

What unusual scent is your favourite? Let me know!

    This sounds lovely! I love a good candle at this time of year. I’m quite simple in my candle scents, anything with cinnamon and warming spices but I do have a fig candle from Dyptique which I keep for special occasions!
