Angel and Dick Strawbridge are known for their DIY abilities and creative minds - which created their new line of personalised gifts from the chateau.
We love watching Angel and Dick's creative minds run wild on Escape To The Chateau, as they both take inspiration from their French 18th-century fairytale chateau and create beautiful things. And while Angel has already released her own homewares line inspired from different natural elements of Chateau De La Motte Husson, the designer has released a highly anticipated new gift that was inspired from her chateau home.
Taking to the chateau's Facebook page, the designer revealed,
"We have been asked lots about candles.. And we are very proud to show you our new personalised Chateau candle range (ok.. it's just 2 at the moment.. but you have to start somewhere!)
"We only have 200 of each as we had no idea of demand...Xx"
Fans of the show have been asking Angel for months to release candles based on the scents of the chateau, and finally they're here! But we think she may have underestimated the demand...
Describing the candles further, Angel and Dick explain on their website,
"We like to feel our home is a delight to the senses. During the summer months we are lucky enough to have the house filled with fresh flowers from the garden and often burn a candle in our entrance hall.
"The fragrances travel around the Chateau and many guests comment that they would like to capture the aroma and take it home with them …… so we have made it possible."
Each candle is handmade and handpoured by Angel's collaborator, Sandy Bay. The wax blend is completely natural including a coconut wax inclusion for maximum effectiveness, with the candles burning of around 40 hours.
Without question, the candles are beautiful - presented in a matte white ‘The Chateau’ branded glasses, which can also be personalised with a name of your choice.
Available to purchase on their website, Angel has made two candles with unique scents from the chateau:
Scents of the Walled Garden
"This candle captures the beautiful fragrance that is the start of summer! The candle includes a blend of roses, geraniums and peonies in full bloom, mingling with an underlying spicy note. Totally joyful!," the chateau's website describes.
"If you light this candle and close your eyes, you’ll be transported to a party in the Chateau orangery. You will detect the mingling scents of the flowers and foliage we use to decorate when we host events; orange blossom, rosemary and basil accented with hints of cedar wood, oak moss and the woody freshness of our surrounding woodland. This is the perfect candle to make you smile any time of the year!" the website explains.
While Angel may have underestimated the demand for these beautiful candles, she has confirmed she will be making more later this year - and we can't wait!
