Epoh-Ireti Vanilla & Black Pepper Candle


Epoh-Ireti is a luxury lifestyle brand that creates ethical luxury soy candles which are hand crafted in Britain. Their ethos is to spread ‘hope’ by the way of candlelight and beautiful scents. The founder, Hope Jikiemi started the company in 2012 when she was pregnant with her son and filled with the hope of motherhood and the birth of new life. There are six candles in the collection which consists of Green Tea & Lemon, Black Pepper & Vanilla, Fresh Linen & Cashmere, Pomegranate & Fig, Tuberose & White Peony and Chocolate Oudh (The Hope Candle). All of the ingredients are organic and contain essential oils. Even their packaging is eco-friendly with their labels printed using soy ink. Each candle has a wooden wick and burns for 50 hours. Moreover, they burn without releasing harmful pollutants, toxins or soot into the air.

I tried the Vanilla & Black Pepper Candle which I found to be a complete delight. The mesh of the two smells creates a rich and aromatic aroma that is warm and inviting but also adds a lot depth. It may be subtle but the scent is long lasting. It did take me a while to work out how the wick works as opposed to the thin stout that most candles have but this style allows for a much larger flame and thus resulting with a more even scent.

These candles are gorgeous to look at and are like a sunshine in the wind. The packaging is nothing short of immaculate and shows that just because you go down the eco route does not mean that it should result in boring brown packaging. Epoh-Ireti demonstrates that you can create stunning packaging while being environmentally friendly.
