Last November Dick and Angel Strawbridge of Escape to the Chateau fame launched their first line of candles, to great success. They’ve often spoken of the power of filling your home (or chateau) with the calming scents of candles, with their guests at The Chateau regularly commenting that they wished they could capture the aroma of the place and take it home with them.
And so they launched their very own line of natural wax blend candles. Poured into beautiful matte white ‘The Chateau’ branded glass containers, they can even be personalised, making them a truly thoughtful gift. The two scents available are Walled Garden (roses, geranium and peonies with underlying spicy notes) and The Orangery (orange blossom, rosemary and basil with a woody freshness), both of which have an impressive 40-hour clean burn.
Previous customers of the candles can attest to the wonderful aromas they give off. One happy shopper says: ‘I LOVE mine. Bought orangery when it came out last year ❤️’ while another claims: ‘I got mine for Christmas. Absolutely beautiful. The smell of the walled garden candle is gorgeous x’.
And the good news keeps on coming – while Dick and Angel’s candles are normally £30, last Wednesday they announced that they were discounting them to £25, giving customers a lovely £5 off the usual price.

Happy Wonderful Wednesday! Have you seen this weeks update from Dick & Angel? ✨ . “Wonderful Wednesday Alert! Last November we launched our personalised candles and the feedback so far has been utterly lovely. The candles are poured in Essex, (they have a 40 hour clean burn so are up there with the best of them), they are then engraved (or not if you so choose) in Swindon before being delivered to your door by a candle fairy! . Ok that last bit was just to see if you were paying attention….This week we are selling them at £25. . We have two scents, Walled Garden (roses, geranium and peonies with underlying spicy notes) and The Orangery (orange blossom, rosemary and basil with a woody freshness).” . . UPDATE: Due to your incredible support, we have unfortunately now sold out of our Personalised Candles. We’ll restock these as soon as we can! #escapetothechateau #dickandangel #wonderfulwednesdayselfie
The discount comes as part of the duo’s new ‘Wonderful Wednesdays’ string of promotional offers. The pair explained that, ‘In France it’s tradition for the children to have Wednesdays off school. Because of this and the fact that we often work weekends, we have started a Strawbridge tradition… called… drum roll please… Wonderful Wednesday! It’s family time. We thought it would be nice to share a bit of the happiness and every ‘Wonderful’ Wednesday a different item on our site will have a promotional offer.’

The promotion started with 25 per cent off their book, The Chateau: The Beginning, but it’s the most recent offer of the candles that has really got people talking.
The announcement of the offer was, naturally, met with huge excitement and fans rushed to get hold of theirs, meaning the candles swiftly sold out. However, if you were too late to nab yours, the couple have promised more are on their way: ‘Due to your incredible support, we have unfortunately now sold out of our Personalised Candles. We’ll restock these as soon as we can!’ So keep your eyes peeled for the next drop of candles!’
