I’m a Candle Snob, But I’m Obsessed With These Marks and Spencer Candles

My name is Eleanor, and I’m an accidental candle snob. If you could take a peek into my home, you’d find Jo Malone candles mingling with Diptyque atop my fireplace, and Bella Freud and Boy Smells dotted around my flat. I’m lucky in my job as a beauty editor that I’ll often receive new candles to test. However, I’m aware I have developed very expensive taste. While I might occasionally buy an expensive candle every now and then (I’ll forever buy Diptyque’s Noisetier candle, and I practically ration my Byredo Bibliotheque one), if I weren’t in my line of work as a beauty journalist, I wouldn’t have the money to burn on the really expensive candles. So I decided to find the best high-street candles that won’t break the bank or compromise on filling a room with fragrance.
