It’s hard to avoid all the choccies in the shops at the moment as the countdown to Easter begins. This is my alternative – so much kinder on the waistline!
The adorable candlemaker that is Urban Apothecary London has introduced a new macaroon-inspired range of candles called Just Desserts. My favourite is the Chocolate Orange, but be warned: don’t light this if you are feeling hungry. I’ve been salivating at my desk. It smells unbelievably authentic – like stepping into a Parisian chocolatier. The zingy orange with deep notes of cocoa is blissful (not to mention the elegant glass bonbon pot it comes in – I’m planning to use mine for storing jewellery when the candle has burned out). Sure to put a smile on your face. Delicious.
