Filthy Velvet: Scandles With Attitude
It's time, guys! Now is the time to step back from the mass produced, over priced jars and embrace something new and sexy!
You know when you come across a brand you just know you're going to love?
Introducing FILTHY VELVET !
Filthy Velvet are breaking new ground here in Northern Ireland, with their sleek high-end design, these hand poured "Scandles" and "Filthy Bit" melts are available both online (here) and in a few select stockists around the country.
Available in an amusing variety of cheeky and luxurious scents, my favourites have to be Posh Tart (apple pie), Knocked Up (baby powder) and Pot Head (freshly cut grass). The quirky names and clever scents really do live up to expectations.
I got my hands on Double D Cups* and a punch of sweet fresh pear filled my home as soon as I removed the lid and it has firmly become and absolute favourite in our home.
If there's one thing I love, it's shopping local and helping to promote new local brands and produce, of course it helps when you fall head over heels for the actual product, as well as the company themselves.
Filthy Velvet is the brain child of Karen Shirlow & Jeremy Moore and the couple handpour each and every scandle from their home. They estimate each scandle has a 40 hour burn time and I think I can honestly stand by this.
My Double D- cup's have been burning every evening for the past week and not only does the scent fill & linger around the whole house, I've yet to see any real movement in the wick and there is almost no smoke when extingushed - something I really love, especially when you blow out a candle just before bed.
For a bargainous £10.50 each, Filthy Velvet Scandles are a high-end product for a high-street price-tag. The fun and risky names provoke great talking points and I can certainly see myself buying a few more of these for gifts in the coming months.
If you're local to Belfast, the full range of Filthy Velvet Scandles are available from Studio Souk, Castle Lane, Belfast or you can buy online directly (here) and get free delivery on orders over £15.
