I got a set of two candles as a present, but decided to burn the Ultimate Fig one first. I love Arran Aromatics products, but had only ever smelt the candles in shops, so was intrigued to see if they lived up to all my other favourites now that I had some at home.
And, of course, they did!
This one is from the Parfumeur Collection, with a fragrance described as a "dense greenery of cassis and dried fruity notes of fig with a mellow cedar floral back note" and the Ultimate Fig, really is lovely. It is an indulgent fragrance that is exclusive, coming from their very own perfumer.
The amazing aroma swells around the room and isn't overpowering, but also isn't indistinct enough to not be able to smell it. In a way it's almost like a multi-layered and complex perfume, rather than a simple scented candle, with the smell staying around for ages after. The Arran Aromatics philosophy of "fragrance first" is definitely evident.
Arran Aromatics candles are really indulgently lovely and are well worth investing in.
