12 Days of Giveaways - Day One - Cire Trudon Spiritus Sancti


The first thing that popped into my head when I started thinking about this year's 12 Days was this candle. I am a candle freak - no really - I've got it bad. Especially for Cire Trudon.
Spiritus Sancti is literally as described: 'Holy Spirit'. It smells of Church. Well, Mass, to be precise.


It contains incense, lily of the valley, labdanum and benzoin. It's one of the best candles ever made and it's up for grabs.


Simply leave a comment below.
Giveaway closes at 11.59pm this evening.
UK only.
