Long nights, cosy blankets, pumpkin spice lattes and Tiger and Co candles – the recipe for the perfect autumnal night in.
The Staffordshire based home fragrance brand was launched by Penelope in 2019 after she found candle making therapeutic and beneficial to her mental health. Now, she spends her time developing gorgeous home fragrances and hand pouring her candle creations.
Tiger and Co products are all vegan and cruelty free, with a big focus on sustainability. They’re created using sustainable soy wax grown in Europe, which is both renewable and biodegradable. The stunning fragrances – available as candles, tealights and wax melts – are created with natural essential oils and and safe synthetic fragrance oils.
The brand are currently stocking 12 fragrances, from ‘morning coffee’, to ‘fireside’ and ‘full moon’. Earlier this week, Tiger and Co launched their Festive candle duo – a two candle jar set in fragrances which really encapsulates the Christmas spirit. And the great thing is – you can get 10% off with the code BEFF10.
The Tiger and Co festive candle duo features the scents Christingle and Yule in the classic and distinctive Tiger and Co glass jars. Their brown paper labels signify their sustainable ethos, with a beautiful rose gold foil displaying the branding and scents of the candles.
Yule features notes of mulled wine, tart red berries and sweet stewed apples – which always reminds me of Christmas markets and toasting the year. It’s the perfect candle to burn to welcome the festive season when you inevitably put the tree up early in 2020 – we deserve it.
Each candle has a cotton and paper wick for a clean burn and no sooting, also meaning they’re safe to burn around your pets. They also have around 20 hours of burn time each, so the set offers approximately 40 hours total.
Christingle is inspired by Penelope’s childhood Christmasses – I’m sure we all remember making Christingles at primary school. The candle smells of cinnamon, cloves, star anise and ginger, with hints of clementine. Some of us may also know these spices to be the ingredients of a good homemade mulled wine, too.
The gift set retails at £25 – and you can bag free delivery over £35. The candles come wrapped in brown, recyclable ‘bubble wrap’ with Tiger and Co branding in a branded box filled with straw padding.
The Tiger and Co wax melts are super dreamy, and I’ve been inhaling the autumnal fragrances of Pumpkin, Wild Fig and Golden Pear.
With 12 scents to choose from, Tiger and Co realise how difficult it may be to choose, so are offering 10% off when you buy four or more bars!
The Pumpkin wax melt features cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and spice. This snap bar reminds me of pumpkin picking in crisp fields, followed by a cosy cuppa in a country pub.
Wild Fig is decadent and juicy, fragranced with figs, blackberries and cassis with a hint of vanilla, with a gorgeous light blue dried bloom running through the bar.
Finally, Golden Pear smells of poached pears and nectar, with undertones of tonka bean, which Tiger and Co describe as ‘sophisticated and mature with a juicy twist’.
The wax melts come in their own glassine paper bag and paper label, which is fully biodegradable, and then wrapped in eco-friendly tissue paper. I’ve even saved the box and tissue paper to use in Christmas gifts later this year!
Wax melts are the more affordable way of getting your autumn fragrance fix, costing £4 per bar. They’re great for if you like switching up the scents in your home, or want to try a fragrance before committing to a candle jar or tin.
Tiger and Co candles offer a cosy hygge vibe for any room, offering a beautiful atmosphere to relax and recharge. There’s a fragrance for everyone, and due to their simple, eco-friendly and effective branding, they match any theme or decor. Use BEFF10 for 10% off everything in the collection up until last posting day this Christmas. And don’t forget to follow Tiger and Co on Instagram
