I hope you’ve had a fab weekend so far! Today I have some gorgeous goodies to show you from Lokum Istanbul. The lovely guys there offered to send me one of their candles and a box of Turkish delight to review 🙂
If, like me, you hadn’t previously heard of Lokum Istanbul, the main philosophy of the brand is to bring back the delights, flavours, knowledge and beauty of offering gifts and treats of Ottoman-Turkish culture to modern life. They offer gifts including Turkish Delights, Akide Candies, Fragrances, and Candles.
I received an Eve’s Fig Candle, and a box of Turkish Delight. Both arrived in stunning top quality packaging, they would really make fantastic gifts. The candle is large and has two wicks, and comes housed in a tin with a lid. It has a lovely delicate scent.
At the time of taking the photos I hadn’t opened the Turkish Delight as I wanted to save it for a special occasion. There was no occasion in mind as such, it’s just such a special product I didn’t want to just scoff it willy nilly! Since then I have opened it up – my previous only experience of turkish Delight is the Cadbury’s kind, in the purple wrapper! So I didn’t really know what to expect with this. It couldn’t be more different! The box contained large chunks covered in icing sugar powder, the flavour was delicate, almost floral, with a distinct hint of spice. It’s really lovely and I’m savouring every piece!
If you’re looking for an unusual gift for someone special, I’d definitely recommend you check out Lokum Istanbul 🙂 xxx
