This giveaway has now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered, and congratulations to the winner, Rebekah Terrell!

I love scented candles and I love jewellery, so I was intrigued to hear about a new range of ‘jewellery candles’ from Etta French. From the outside they look like any other candle, but hidden within the wax is a surprise – a necklace, charm, bracelet or ring designed by jewellery brand Pearl & Queenie.

The candles are available from Nisi Living, a Bristol-based homeware website which focuses on modern Mediterranean style. It was founded by Eleni Portch, who was inspired by the relaxed, sociable lifestyle she enjoyed during childhood holidays with her Greek relatives. Etta French is just one of the brands she features; others include European names such as Marlo & Isaure and Lalla de Moulati, plus up-and-coming British designers Georgia Bosson and Alex McCarthy Ceramics. When Eleni asked if I’d like to try one of the candles I jumped at the chance, and she’s also kindly giving one away to a lucky reader – just scroll down for details.

There are six Etta French scents to choose from, including a limited-edition nutmeg, orange and cinnamon fragrance for the festive period. I opted for rose, saffron and vetiver – a wonderfully heady combination of floral notes and spicy, earthy elements. It lingered for hours, and was neither cloyingly sweet nor overly musky – in fact, Chris liked it just as much as I did. I was also very impressed with the stylish white jar (perfect for our muted, minimal house) and the natural soy wax, which produced a clean, smooth burn.

But best of all was the foil-covered package which slowly began to emerge from the wax. A little patience was required as the candles last for 45-50 hours, but eventually I was able to carefully retrieve it with a pair of tweezers and unwrap the treat within. Tightly encased in several protective layers was a beautiful necklace with a heart-shaped charm – one of 100 or so gold- and silver-plated designs which are added to each candle.
