Gotta have it!

Ever wondered what a nudist beach smells like? Apricot and rhubarb iced tea apparently! Check out Nottingham's naughtiest new candle brand.

There’s something about the summer: coconut sun lotion, refreshing cocktails, ice cream, salty hair, chilled tunes, deserted beaches, palm trees, white sand…. If you’ve been away, or are planning your escape, we have the ideal gift to treat yourself to when you get back. You may or may not be a fan of nudie sunbathing (we won’t judge!) but we can all agree on one thing – the ‘Nudist Beach’ scent by Nottinghamshire candle brand Daydreamin’ is a less exposing alternative! Launched just last year, fans already include GQ which featured the Libertine candle in its ‘best of’ roundup.

Reminiscent of those hazy days in the sun, the tropically-scented Nudist Beach candle is an exclusive blend of juicy apricot blossom, rhubarb iced tea and sweet coconut, rounded off with hints of bamboo leaf and exotic papaya.

Hand poured in Nottingham by head hustler, Mike Tristram, the candles are made from 100% essential oils and soy wax so all the smellies are kind to animals and the planet- and one tree gets planted for every candle sold. Could smelling good be any better than that?

The packaging is slick and attractive so you’ll want to keep the jars way after the candle has disappeared, and I love the clever marketing – aimed primarily at men (perfect gifting for smelly teen rooms or husbands who are entering red car and leather jacket territory), with candle names like Juicy Scandal, Morning Sex, Joyride, and Mile High Club though Runaway Bride is clearly one for the girls.

Nudist Beach is available to order online in Standard (160g / 5.6oz) with approx 35+ hours burn time or the phnar-phnar Girthy (240g / 8.5oz) with 50+ hours burn time. Enjoy the sizzle.
