They say the way to a person’s heart is through the stomach. The last time you tried to entice someone with your domestic prowess, he ended up in the hospital.
Impress guests with the sweet scent of home cooking — minus the gastric bypass.
Juliette at Home has a range of delectable scented candles that smell good enough to eat. Give yourself a sugar rush with apple crumble, lemon drizzle cake, rhubarb and custard, or summer pudding. Or play it cool with cucumber sandwich or tomato leaf and basil scents.
Made from vegetable-based wax, each candle comes in a retro ceramic pot that can be reused once the wick has died (approximately 45 hours) and with a recipe card teaching you to make your own chutney.
But with your track record, we recommend sticking to what you nose.
Available at Something, 58 Lamb’s Conduit Street, WC1N 3LW (020 7430 1516); online at staffybhome.co.uk, £16.
