Cello Candle Review


Gorgeous smells emanated from the box as soon as I opened these candles. They were send to me to review from new, bespoke home fragrance, brand Cello. Having launched with a total of 12 fragrances their paraffin wax offers muted wax colours. I burn candles constantly through the dark evenings usually from brands like Yankee Candle and Wood Wick candles but also budget alternatives like Wickford & Co from Home Bargains and Primark candles too. 

Medium Fragrance Burst Jar - Wildflower Garden - £19.99*

Wildflower Garden: Gatherings of vibrant freesias and violets cascade wildly as their lush buds radiate towards the sunshine. This spectacular display is accented with soft rose and musk for a bold and and delightful sweetness.


This scent is beautiful - just like the flowers in spring. The candles are fragranced throughout the wax to ensure that you experience our tantalising scents from the moment the candle is lit until the very last burn. Each candle has lead-free cotton dual wicks to ensure a clean and consistent burn that will create a beautiful pool and strong throw.

The medium burst jar will burn for a total of 120 hours. I always do my best to allow the wax pool to melt all the way to the edges so my candle doesn't tunnel and thanks to the two wicks this happens fairly quickly. I didn't find this candle had a super strong scent when burning but sometimes floral scents can be really over powering so many this is a good thing. Another thing I love about this candle are the beautiful colours in the jar - the fragrance burst design is what the creators of Cello believes a fragrance would look like if they could see it. 

Scent Cup - Berry Burst - Soft Linen - Spiced Citrus - £2.69 each*
Berry Burst: Freshly picked strawberries and juicy mango work in harmony with aromatic passionfruit and cassis to give a tart yet sweet burst of vibrance.

Soft Linen: A warm gentle breeze delicately flows through freshly laundered sheets to give a squeaky clean and feathery light fragrance. Whispers of musk and sandalwood compliment this calm and pure delight.

Spiced Citrus: Sun - kissed grapefruit merges with delicate florals, mysterious black pepper, sensual musk and caramel in this complex and stimulating medley.

These little candles have a 12 hour burn time, substantially longer than a normal tea light, so are perfect for testing out fragrances. They melt to the edges really quickly for an even and efficient burn. 

My favourite scent of the four is 'Berry Burst' because it smells like summer to me and is sweet without being too sweet. Soft Linen is clean and fresh just as you would expect. Perfect for when your having guests round in the day and want your house to smell good without being over powering. I think the reed diffuser would be great for the hall or bathroom. Finally, 'Spiced Citrus' is another clean scent but because of the spices and musk it smells much more autumnal to me - perfect for this time of year.

Check out the rest of the fragrances on Cello's website and let me know which one is your favourite.
