During my weekly browse through the MUJI section in Selfridges, I deviated from pining over acrylic storage and took the time to sniff some of their candle offerings. I'm a bit of a candle addict, and after spotting Vivianna Does Makeup mentioning that MUJI candles are possible dupes for Diptique, I knew I had to see for myself. Log Fire was one of the first ones that I sniffed and I was instantly intrigued. I then handed it to my boyfriend to see his thoughts, and he headed straight to the counter and bought it himself! Definitely a winner, and for £3.50 it doesn't have to be a guilty purchase either. Unsurprisingly, it's a pretty masculine scent - warm, smoky and woody. It really does evoke feelings of burning log fires and memories of camping as a child, and could not be better suited to this time of year. It makes our little city centre apartment feel like a cosy log cabin in the middle of a forest, which is pretty impressive. Definitely one that I imagine will be repurchased time and time again, especially with the boyfriend on side!
If you're into fresher or girlier scents, MUJI have a plethora of those to choose from, too. I've currently got my eye on Japanese Pear and Elderflower Champagne.
