The White Company Autumn Candle

I don't know about you but I always look forward to the start of every season & as much as I love blue skies & the warmth of the sun on your skin during the Spring & Summer I don't think you can beat the arrival of Autumn.  For me it's the promise of fresh crisp days & (hopefully) blue skies to accompany darker nights that are just perfect for snuggling in front of the fire with the odd lit candle or two.

To mark the arrival of Autumn The White Company have just released a new fragrance to their home collection called 'Autumn', which they describe as a 'glorious warm scent which blends fruity notes with musk and amber'.  I've been lucky enough to have been sent one of their candles to try & I have to say it was love at first sniff!

My Midlife Fashion, The White Company Autumn

Funnily enough I had been discussing candles on holiday with my hubby (as you do!) & despite the fact we've got many a candle (both wax & battery operated) together with fairy lights dotted around our home we've not brought a scented candle for a few years & whilst basking in the Mallorcan sunshine I had decided that this Autumn I would invest in a few, not only to light but to also lightly fragrance our home as well.  So the arrival on my candle from The White Company was perfectly timed.

One of the first things that struck me, apart from how beautifully it came packaged (I just love brands that box & wrap their items to give that luxurious feel) was that I could smell the scent of my candle from the moment I undid the cellophane wrapping around the box.  

Now I can be quite sensitive to scents as some can trigger migraines but whilst this candle's scent is quite sweet it does have the spicy undertones from the musk that balance it well & is definitely a fragrance I would have chosen for myself.  

I received the Autumn Signature candle which is priced at £20 (although you can currently get 15% off with code AN536) & has a burning time of approximately 28 hours plus of course even when not light the scent from the candle helps scent your room so it's not bad value & of course as with all things from The White Company it has a gorgeous elegance that will add style to any room.

In fact while we're talking The White Company I thought it would be interesting to take a peek at my top pieces from their latest collection as they are definitely a company that manage that effortless & timeless elegance most of us look to aspire to.  Plus today's the last day to use their exclusive 25% off code which also comes with free UK delivery so it would be rude not to take a more detailed peek surely ;-)

So first up is this lovely studded suede belt.  I recently bought a similar belt in their summer sale & have already found it incredibly useful.  Teamed with just the simplest of outfits such a white shirt & jeans this belt will transform any look & will end up being something you wondered how you lived without.

Now I've had my eye on this lovely heart bracelet for a while.  Perfect for wearing on it's own or layered with others I think this would make the most perfect gift & keepsake.

The White Company Solid Heart Silver Bracelet

Of course come the arrival of Autumn & we'll all be wearing many a scarf.  So this pom pom edged knitted light grey one would be perfect for layering over a biker jacket come those cooler mornings.

The White Company Pom Pom Knitted Scarf

And these light grey suede lace up ballet flats are another game changer for adding interest to a plain & simple outfit.

The White Company Lace Up Ballet Flats

I just love the look of this lace camisole - so much prettier than some of my plainer numbers for adding a layer on warmth.  I'm not sure how warm this would be but it would certainly feel very luxurious to wear this under knitwear.

The White Company Pretty All Over Lace Cami

This next item I've already purchased a couple of months ago.  Perfect for rolling up & keeping in my handbag & using when out shopping & of course being from The White Company incredibly stylish too.

The White Company Do Small Things Grey Heart Shopper

Next up a timeless double zip across body bag that is perfect worn as it is or accessorised with a tied scarf or pom pom.

And finally how cosy does this blurred herringbone coat look?  In fact the whole outfit is perfection & definitely a colour palette I intend to continue with this AW16.

Back to today's outfit & I'm teaming an embroidered H&M top with my ever useful cigarette jeans & tying in the black embroidery with my Marks brogues.

  1. Good call to promote TWC today, Jane, I'm a fan of the company and with that cosy top photo you may just have softened me to autumn. A bit.
    I do think they do super knitwear; I like their soft sludgey neutrals. I've been a fan of their modal tops and vests, which now feel a tad short for me. Just a tad, though, doesn't stop me wearing these lovely tops! I'm off to check the site to see if they have lengthened the tops this season.

    1. They just epitomise effortless chic don't they Mary & with 25% off that's a serious saving so perfect timing for treating ourselves ready for Autumn or even starting our Christmas shopping!
      Enjoy your Sunday.

  2. Effortlessly stylish as always. Perfect blog - love all these pieces. x Jacqui

    1. Aww thanks Jacqui. I could seriously do a lot of damage at The White Company, everything is just stunning isn't it. I'm definitely going to treat ourselves to a few more of their scented candles for Autumn & perhaps a couple of other things too ;-)
      Enjoy your day.
      Jane xx

  3. Fab! Thank you for 25% code, I had been dithering about ordering £180! photo frame as a present (52 apertures, one for every week of my nephew's first year)! Just ordered and sneaked an Autumn candle in too. Winter is my fave but not ready to go there yet...

    1. Oh wow Caroline what a wonderful 1st birthday gift I love it & with the discount you definitely deserve the candle for being the most thoughtful Aunt ever! Enjoy.
      Jane xx

  4. Do you know, I've never had one of their candles! I've started lighting a few of late also as the nights are drawing in earlier, I really should give them a go. Will add to my Christmas list! Thanks for sharing X

    1. You can't beat Autumn & lighting a candle can you Natalie. I'm now a total convert to The White Company's candles & they're a much better price point than similar companies to! I'd certainly highly recommend.
      Jane xx
