Ecoya | Vanilla Bean Mini Metro and French Pear Mini Metro + French Pear Handcream

A few month's ago I went shopping at Bayfair Shopping Centre in Tauranga and I don't go there as often as I'd like because it takes two buses and a journey time of 1 and 15 minutes each way.

Bayfair has a few of my favourite shop's and one of those is one of the bigger shop's called Farmers (similar to Australia's Myer, David Jones and the UK's Debenhams, John Lewis). There's a small Farmers store outside of my town but because it's small they don't have a big Home Fragrance section.

I was looking around nail polishes rack's and I found a 4 tier stand stocked full of Ecoya with an Offer if you spent $25 you get a $29.99 (75ml) Ecoya handcream of your choice so I decided to buy two Ecoya Mini Metro candle's NZ$24.95 each and receive the Gift With Purchase handcream, then I remembered I had $20 in Farmers points redeem so this meant one candle would cost just $4.95!

Ecoya are an Australian luxury brand and I really don't know much about them. I hadn't heard of them before moving to the UK so I wanted to buy one and try it out, the candle's cost over $20 each but I don't mind paying a little bit more for a candle that's going to actually fragance my flat with a beautiful scent with a clean burn. I don't like cheap candles with fake or chemically scent's when they burn I find those give me a headache but Ecoya doesn't because it's a Soy candle and the throw is pleasant.

The mini candle's will burn up to 18 hour's which I think it's pretty good for a mini.

Ecoya mini candle's are called Mini Metro 50g (1.07oz) $24.95 each.

They had a few scent's so I sniffed all of them and I decided to go with Vanilla Bean because I adore Vanilla.

Ecoya say's:

A velvety and rich, full-bodied vanilla bean extract is deliciously wrapped in creamy tones of butterscotch to create a rich, indulgent and luxurious fragrance. A beautiful soy wax candle. Delicately poured into a contemporary glass jar and presented in a colourful box. Enjoy up to 18 hours of burn time. 

French Pear smelt wonderful and because I liked French Pear I chose it for the Free Gift With Purchase HandcreamThe essence of a crisp, tree-ripened pear is captured and blended with a hint of the creamiest vanilla. This sophisticated and rich combination is then infused with star anise for a scent akin to freshly baked apple crumble. A beautiful soy wax candle. Delicately poured into a contemporary glass jar and presented in a colourful box. Enjoy up to 18 hours of burn time.

I haven't tried the French Pear handcream or the Vanilla Bean candle but I'll review these separately in the future. As for the scent's; I definitely recommend the French Pear and if you like Vanilla then I believe you'll like the Vanilla Bean. Ecoya also make Home Fragrance, Body Care and Gift's. The larger candle's come in a Madison or a Metro in two different sizes along with the Mini Metro (above).

Have you tried Ecoya before, do you have a favourite scent, product?
