If it’s good enough for a Duchess…
The Duchess of Sussex has been making headlines recently after her interview with The Cut. It’s safe to say that people have been loving all of Meghan’s outfits (her white suit was our personal favourite), but there was something else that caught our attention.
At the beginning of the piece, we got an insight into the Duchess’s dreamy Montecito home, and we even found out what Meghan’s favourite candle is. Curious? We thought so.
‘Meghan, relaxing in a cozy chair, gazes over all that is climate-controlled and high-ceilinged and sun-dappled and perfectly marshmallowy, and hers,’ the interview reads. ‘An invisible hand has lit a Soho House–branded rose-water candle (the founder, Nick Jones, is a friend from “long before I met Harry,” she says), and that scent fills the air’.
The Rose Water candle by Soho House is just as chic as you’d expect, with minimal packaging and a scent inspired by the Walled Garden at Babington House.
It’s no surprise that it sold out in no time, but have no fear, as we’ve rounded up some of the best rose scented candles below. Keep on scrolling and get ready to make your house smell like royalty…
