Beefayre Tahitian Vanilla and Chilli Pepper candle review


    I am not quite sure what it is about candles that I find so comforting and familiar but I rarely have a day where I don't light one. I was shopping on my local high street and found this cute little candle from Bee Fayre in Whitestuff and I just couldn't resist it. I actually can't find this particular candle on the Bee Fayre website but they have lot's of other lovely scents to choose from, as well as a variety of skincare and other Bee related products. Bee Fayre is another British brand who are Bee Keepers and who use honey, beeswax and propolis in their products, Bee Fayre donates 3% of their profits from their handmade products to Bee conservation, their design on the products is so beautiful and it is that that first attracted me to this candle. 

    This Tahitian Vanilla and Chilli Pepper Votive (£7.50 for the small candles) although small, burns for a surprising 25 hours, it is made from a blend of natural waxes and has a beautiful Bee design etched on the glass. This is too pretty to throw away and I will be reusing mine for cotton buds when all the candle is gone. Bee Fayre don't mention whether their fragrances are from essential oils or from fragrance oils on the site (Edit: Depending on the blend Bee Fayre use both, those that have EO do say on the individual sections) but this is a very nice sweet scent, the Chilli Pepper gives it a warm edge and makes this candle a little different, slightly fresh but peppery at the same time. The candle has burnt very cleanly and I have been very happy with it, the scent throw is very good considering the size of the candle and the blend is very comforting. 

    I have a wish list as long as my arm from the Bee Fayre site, but for now I am very happy with my first purchase from the brand, if you are a candle lover these pretty candles are a lovely addition to anyone's home. Have you tried anything from Bee Fayre? What should I try next?

  3. I think this scent is exclusive to white stuff so that might be why it's not on their website. With regards to the fragrance/essential oils - it varies. Some are essential oils some aren't.
    On their website I think it's in sections there is about 3 or 4 with essential oils :) I love Beefayre, haven't lit my large candles yet as I haven't had long enough to be able to burn them all the way out & don't want to ruin them but I love my tealight in Honey Lilly :)

    1. Yes it is exclusive to White stuff, couldn't find it on their site though, they clarified the EO/FO thing for me, I suspected they used a mixture of the two because they had scents that you can't usually make with EO. I have my eye firmly on the Bee Happy scent next! :) Xx

    1. I wasn't sure what it would be like but it is very nice, the chilli just adds a little something extra to the Vanilla but is not overpowering Xx

  8. I've been using a bee fayre lip balm, which is really nice. I've got the lavender & bergamot but it was a tricky decision between that and the wild mint & chocolate! Fx
