Rachel Bates Interiors Luxury Botanical Candle offers an introduction into one of The UK’s most beautiful, and luxurious English Interior Design Companies.
What is a luxury life? If you ask ten different people, you will get ten different answers. Our view is that if you are leading the ultimate in luxury living you are surrounded by an environment that heightens your senses. In many ways, this embodies a large part of what Gentlemans Butler focuses on: sight, sound, taste, smell and touch.
We wanted to highlight three things for you. Firstly, a brief introduction to Rachel Bates. Secondly purchasing one of the simplest and most popular luxury products for the home, and lastly with reference to both the ideology of Rachel Bates and Gentlemans Butler, in that if you are going to do something, do it properly and in this case what are the best ways to burn and look after your candle.
Hopefully we will do more with her company in the future, but I wanted to express my admiration as once you look at the brand you can tell she is a stickler for detail and perfection. When you meet Rachel, you are not only met by a beaming smile, but she is impeccably dressed and importantly she is welcoming and warm. In fact, you could say her etiquette and I imagine her hostess skills are top notch. These are my assessments of meeting her, her team and her products. As a brand, I have been very impressed and particularly by her videos, which as an ex TV and commercials producer is key. So, though she has not interior designed my home I can tell from what I have experienced so far that she and her company understands perfectly the need for consistency and class. I adore her high class approach to interior design which certainly touched my emotions, the reason why I wanted to work with her.

The Fine Art of Candle Burning (candle care) –
Rachel Bates has put together a few helpful tips for how to get the best results from your candle
With each burn, the candle is lit long enough for the wax surface to be entirely melted to the edge of the glass.
Trim the wick before relighting, making sure the wick is still centred and straight.
If the wick has dried off-centre, light it and gently manoeuvre it back to the centre using a matchstick. The wick may now be too long and be puffing out black smoke. If this is the case, blow out the candle, cut the wick and relight.
Keep the candle clean. Use kitchen roll to wipe any residue off the top of the glass.
Position the lit candle away from draughts and flammable materials.
Do not burn candles on surfaces susceptible to heat damage.
Never leave a candle unattended or near children and pets.
Never allow the candle flame to touch the outside of the glass.
Take care when blowing out the candle and leave to cool down before picking up.
Everything has a use and after your candle has burned fully the multi wick candle receptacle can be used as a vase or the large one can also be used as a trinket jar as they have lids.
We cannot guess your taste but we can introduce luxury interior companies of excellence and so if you are inspired by what I might call a glamorous approach to the traditions of English interior design then I think you will like much of what Rachel Bates Interiors has to offer.
