Hello world, happy weekend!
This weeks post is a little different to a standard review; I’m going to introduce you to one of my favourite candle brands and talk about the company as a whole. So, without further adieu it would be my pleasure to introduce to you: Be Enlightened! (click here for their website)
Be Enlightened is a Sydney born brand operating in the North West. Owned and founded by Michelle Ryan, this brand is well established in the area with over 20 years experience. With over 700 stockists Australia-wide and 5 permanent retail fronts in Sydney; they’re spreading like wildfire.
I actually had the chance to work with them for a bit last year and I was overwhelmed at the values of the company. It’s presented as a luxury candle and body care brand, without the hefty price tag. The owner is a very passionate and genuinely lovely business woman who has clear cut goals and has built a wonderful company. Not to mention, the philosophy and presentation are on point – the brand certainly feels and looks luxurious but you can pick up several items at reduced rates; especially in store.
As far as the products, the quality is second to none. The candles are all exceptionally strong, burn well every time, and the range is fabulous. With 18 scents to choose from, and three size variations, you really cannot go wrong. The two wick pictured above retails for $39.99 AUD but there are always deals and sales happening within the brand. On top of the candle range, Be Enlightened also produce body lotions, soaps, perfumes, room sprays, fragrance cards – the lot! This is especially great for building personalised gifts for people; buying a candle and a hand crème in the same scent is the perfect birthday gift! (Well, for me anyway..)
Some of the scents in the candle line that I recommend: Vanilla, Baltic Amber & Musk, Tropical Coconut, Passionfruit & Paw Paw, Frangipani, Lemongrass, White Grapefruit. (That being said, there are well enough scents to choose from no matter your fragrance preference) I also particularly enjoy the room sprays, lotions and the perfumes – they’re all quality products!
All in all, this is a brand you have to try. The candles in particular are my favourite and I enjoy the whole atmosphere and presentation as a brand. The pricing is appropriate for the quality, and I wouldn’t endorse them nor would I have worked with them had I not genuinely loved the products. If you’re looking to give them a try, pick up a 2 wick candle and see for yourself how strong these babies throw! (click here for the online store)
