For Her – From Kenneth Turner London
Kenneth Turner London has released a limited edition Christmas Collection and it is rather special. Kenneth Turner began creating his signature scents in 1986 and has been a leader in this sphere ever since.
In this festive range, Kenneth Turner London has created three elegant and classy fragrances, which provide the home with a stunning wintery feel.
After 18 months spent redesigning the entire Kenneth Turner range, the Christmas Collection, which also includes Room Cologne and Tealights, is the first in a series of seasonal limited editions to be revealed by the iconic British candle, home fragrance and accessory company.
Mirroring the intuition, expectation and principles that have earned the company a notable following of celebrities, dignitaries and VIPs, each scent is available as a Scented Candle in Posy Vase (£42), Scented Candle in Stem Vase (£90) and Room Cologne (£22). Winter Berries is also available as a box of 12 Tealights (£25).
We were lucky enough to receive a masquerade candle in a posy vase. The fragrance, inspired by a Swiss Winter’s ball, is a delightful blend of black rose and black pepper. These candles burn for 95 hours too, so they will last the course and provide a fantastic background fragrance for guests this Christmas. Superior mineral wax and British perfume blends ensure the candles burn evenly and cleanly, and once the wax has burned down the glass vases can be reused to hold flowers or tea lights.
The Kenneth Turner Christmas Collection is available from Fortnum & Mason, selected independent retailers and department stores and from www.kennethturner.com. Prices vary.
