  1. Michelle Duggins

    I love these candles, the quality of the wax and the essences used is top quality. I like that the fragrances are earthy and different to the normal floral ones. I like the tins too. If you want a candle that’s luxurious but a little bit different, these are the ones for you. Very quick delivery too.

  2. Louise

    I’m so happy I found this store, the candle I ordered is just gorgeous – my home smells heavenly! Great service as well & a lovely wee personalised note included with the delivery, which was a nice touch. Thank you!

  3. Victoria Craig

    This is by far my favourite candle, it brings back memories from years ago! Beautiful candle, will be trying a few more different ones in the future!

  4. Angharad

    Maybe my favourite ever purchase. I’m slightly obsessed with smoky scents and am forever trying to recreate (or buy my way back to!) the smell of my grandmother’s house in North Wales. Anyway these candles are the closest I’ve ever come and honestly, are among the best things I’ve ever smelled. I can’t stop sniffing them! Beautiful packaging too, plus generous extras – getting this parcel in the post just made my day.

    Ireland in a tin! Reminds me so much of Ireland and my grandparents house! This is a gift for my mum, who I know will love it. Honestly the perfect candle! Really nicely packaged with a lovely handwritten note. Would recommend to anyone who loves the smell of turf. Thank you!

  6. Sandie Hornak

    Oh my…THIS candle brings back such amazing memories of our travels in Ireland and Northern Ireland over the years. You’ve captured that peat fire smell perfectly! I’ll be back for more! Thank you so much!!

  7. Mary Johnston

    Amazing service!! We needed the candle for a funeral and they went above and beyond to get it to us!! We’ll definitely be buying again!! Thank you – your kindness meant so much at such a difficult time.

  8. Jordan Locke

    Love this candle! I ordered it as a Mother’s Day gift, and almost kept it for myself!!! If you enjoy candles, but want something that it more earthy and “warm”, the Real Turf Fire Candle is what you should get!

  9. cburnett444

    This candle made me cry because it brought me back to my time visiting Ireland!

  10. Siobhan R

    Smells just like the real thing – a very welcome bit of nostalgia at a strange moment in time. Beautifully presented too. I look forward to ordering from this store again in the future. Thanks!

  11. Molly

    Such lovely, personalised service! The little post code was a lovely touch! Very excited to give it to my grandma for Christmas! Hoping it will make her feel like she’s back home!

    My candle is absolutely amazing – just perfect and presented beautifully. My initial order was sadly lost in the post but the BCM team were incredible and suggested that they send a replacement very quickly and completely free of charge. I couldn’t fault this company or its products and will definitely be ordering again! Thank you!

  13. Siobhan

    This candle smells sublime. It transported me right next to a turf fire 🔥 love it!!!

  14. Keren Elisabeth

    This candle brought back so many memories of my childhood in Ireland and the turf fires every winter. I love it,

  15. Sarah

    LOVE this candle! Reminds me of the days sitting by the fire in our stone cottage in The Burren.

  16. E11en0

    Arrived quickly with a lovely sample, note and two evocative postcards, and really (really!) smells like a turf fire – although haven’t tried burning it yet. Would happily buy again so far.

  17. Aoife O’Connor

    This is literally Ireland in a jar! The most gorgeous scented candle that smells just like home. I will definitely be buying more. Great customer service and delivery:)

  18. Imogen

    Beautiful candle, hand written thank you note in side which is a lovely personal touch and so rare nowadays. Will definitely buy more of these candles

  19. Debbie

    Love these candles my absolute favourite 💜 reminds me of home ☘️

  20. Erin

    By far the best customer service I have received not only on Etsy, but in general. Packaged amazingly, with thoughtful notes, and even a sampling of other candles. I will 100% be purchasing again!

  21. emaillucyk

    Another beautiful candle! A really cosy and homely scent, burns smoothly and evenly. Flawless!

  22. Rebecca

    This is such a beautiful candle! The smell reminds me of sniffing woodsmoke in the air in October. So nostalgic and gorgeous.

  23. Rachel

    This candle is exactly what I was hoping for – the scent of home. The inclusion of patchouli and cedarwood notes stops the smoke note from being overwhelming. This is a lovely candle to burn on long winter evenings.

  24. Faye Keane

    Arrived in Bristol within a week – lovely package with kind note and samples/info of other products. The turf scent is really strong – although I went in full pelt with a sniff straight out of the box hahaha! Much more subtle when lit though. Thanks! Faye

  25. Zoe Marie Grealis

    Bought as a gift for my father to remind him of his childhood. Smells amazing, lovely packaging, and quick delivery. I was so happy I straight away purchased again for another relative!

    Bought for a friend who loves candles and we both share a love for smokey/patchouli scents. Really strong rich aroma (even the box smelled amazing). Unlike other brands the scent is really strong/pleasant when lit. Clearly thoughtfully and well made. Think I might have to treat myself soon!
