Miller Harris Santal Scented Candle Review

Review of Miller Harris Santal Scented Candle

Miller Harris is a luxurious perfumer based in London and their vast fragrance knowledge has been channelled into making long-lasting, delicious smelling candles – and the Miller Harris Santal Scented Candle is no exception. One of my favourites from their candle collection, crisp amber and a hint of vanilla add a sumptuous sweetness to the creamy richness of sandalwood.

Made using soy and rapeseed wax, the natural blend has been expertly crafted for a clean burn without any smoke for up to 50 hours, with the fragrance lasting long after the candle has been blown out. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about this vegan candle…


This Candle Smells Like…

Rich sandalwood is smooth and velvety, and it’s been warmed even more by amber and vanilla for a natural sweetness. There is also an alluring spicy undertone of pink pepper and olibanum, which is balanced by a touch of moss, resulting in an enigmatic, almost mysterious scent that combines earthy facets with oriental tones for a heady warm scent that immerses your home.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

As the name suggests, Santal is a celebration of the precious, opulent aroma of sandalwood. Inspired more creatively by the concept of light bursting through in spring after a long cold winter, the wood begins to dry to perfume the air for a moment of tranquillity.

You Will Love This If…

If you love a woody fragrance, you’ll be obsessed with the way Miller Harris’ oriental woody scent spreads throughout your home as you burn the Santal Scented Candle. Sustainably sourced, the wax burns beautifully and evenly to make you feel warm and cosy for longer – well, an impressive 50 hours if I’m going to be precise.

What’s The Longevity Like?

Starting with a subtle scent, the candle has an incredible reach, distributing scent around your home. It’s recommended that you burn the candle for 4 hours at a time, and thankfully, the fragrance is incredibly long-lasting so it still lingers well after the candle is extinguished.


What’s Special About The Design?

The stunning minimalistic design is purposefully neutral to fit in with any home décor and add a relaxing, chic touch. The jar has a smooth matte finish with a cool ceramic feel and a neutral light brown colour to reflect the warm woodiness inside. The white branding is elegant and subtle and there is the extra special touch of a Haiku poem, which is written about the candle on the outer packaging.



The vegan formulation uses sustainably sourced natural soy and rapeseed wax.

Phthalate-free, paraben-free, formaldehyde-free and artificial colourant-free.
