Bog Standard Linen Candle

So a couple of weeks ago myself and mum took a little venture into Meadows and Byrne and we came across Bog Standard. Out of the array of candles available, it was Bog Standard for some reason that really stood out. More than likely, it was the fresh, cute packaging


I'm a big fan of candles but I do find it hard to find fragrances that aren't overpowering or cause an allergy breakout. I chose the large candle in "Linen" for it's relaxing Lavender and Eucalyptus. I had a cold at the time and my asthma was playing up and the Eucalyptus really helped. I don't put candles in my room, but I brought this in to have by my bed (unlit) to get the soft scent and it worked a treat.


The candle burned evenly and none of the wax went to waste with it all burning. I had this burning everyday and I definitely got the 40 hours, if not more, out of it. The glass was such great quality that I ended up giving it a wash and upcycling it to a eyeliner holder! The candles are infused with fragrance which means it will keep it's scent right down to the very end and this I can attest to. At €16.95 this is a luxury candle made in Co. Down, and as you can tell I'm a huge huge fan!

  1. I really must treat myself to one of these,they sound beautiful, the packaging too is gorgeous!I love that you upcycled the jar, I've done the same with yankee jars, a pain to clean but worth it when they're done!

  3. Something so lovely about getting a new candle. Love the packaging of this and it's such a good idea to wash it out and use it for your eyeliners, I might have to rob that idea for myself :) x

    1. It's great to have an extra holder and to use something I already had was a bonus. The candle is fab x

  4. I love finding new brands like this, really like the different types of scents they have compared to some of the synthetic ones from other popular brands. I do still love an oul tacky Yankee but I'll definitely check this brand out!
