Bella Freud 1970 Candle (Black Musk & Patchouli)

Bella Freud’s 1970 Candle evokes the sexily heady scent of the incense that permeated the decade of free love and rock music. The intoxicating fusion of Frankincense, Myrrh, Oakmoss and Patchouli give way to the lingering base notes of Musk, Sandalwood and Vetivert – imagine the film ‘Almost Famous’ in fragrance form, and you get an idea of its hazily hippy sensuousness. The ideal olfactory accompaniment to an evening at home with your favourite Led Zeppelin record, this makes a gorgeous gift for a laid-back lady or your uber-cool girlfriend-who-has-everything; the perfect balance of masculine yet feminine, alluring yet insouciant… swoon. What’s more, the jar itself makes a gorgeous vase, pen pot or coin collector, long after its contents have been greedily inhaled.

Having made her name as a fashion icon and taste-maker, Bella Freud’s candles are as quirky and covetable as her signature sweaters (donned by the likes of La Moss, Alexa and the lovely Laura Bailey). Housed in chic matte black glassware - complete with a pleasingly weighted ceramic lid to seal in the scent between sessions - and embossed with a graphic white stripe, this makes a stand-out addition to any hearth, bookshelf or bedside table – and the super-sleek aesthetic is only the beginning… Made with hand-poured natural wax infused with the finest essential oils and extracts, this heady candle will fill your rooms with its intoxicating fragrance – even before being lit! However, if you’re able to bring yourself to set a match to it (it’s almost too beautiful to use), it will burn for around 40 hours – transforming your home both visually and aromatically into something you’d see on the pages of ‘at home with Vogue’.

Place in the central part of the room for optimum fragrance distribution. TOP TIP: Minimise smoking by trimming wick after each use and make sure you burn the candle for a good hour the first time you light it, this keeps it burning evenly.

No - just no

I really wanted to love this candle as I really like Loving from Bella's collection. But I am sorry to say ...1970 is just awful, to me it is almost sickening. It is very strong but this fragrance is simply not acceptable, very sharp. Maybe some people like it ... I would never buy thsi again and frankly I am disappointed with how bad it smells for the price I poaid.

Holy Moly...

I’m a massive scented candle fan... need them to have a great fragrance, amazing throw, and an even burn. I’m so fussy too. I was nervous ordering this without having smelled it before but holy moly it’s sensational. It feels so heady and evocative of hippy happy days and has cheered up my dreary December day considerably.

Gorgeous, seductive and great scent throw

This candle is fantastic. The scent was everything I'd hoped for; a patchouli based hippy mix reminiscent of Woodstock and Glastonbury back in the day but beautiful enough to be just at home in any present-day boudoir. The throw is fantastic scenting the whole room from the moment it's lit, even when I suspected I had inhaled all scent out of it before a naked flame had been anywhere near it. Not only would I recommend this wonderful thing, I'd almost insist you buy it! It's a bit extravagant and a little expensive but it's also utterly exquisite and totally worth splashing out on when you feel like you need a treat...or when there's a 'Y' in the day of the week!

Plenty of bang for your buck!

These candles are worth every penny, the quality and intensity of the fragrance means it scents the entire room even before being lit. The heady patchouli scent of 1970 is divine and I wouldn't hesitate to re purchase (at which point I think a couple of the others may fall into my basket)
