Boots was founded in 1849 in Nottingham by John Boot. His son however Jesse Boot is widely acknowledged to be the person that took the brand from minor to major by turning it into a national chain. Jesse’s wife was called Florence Anne and Boots have named a range of fragrance and handwash products after her.
The range is very Jo Malone in my opinion, especially in terms of packaging which is very sophisticated but simple. When you open the box there is some information about Florence Anne on the inside of the lid.
The candle is in a clear glass holder and it has a metallic lid which is placed over the candle when it is not in use. As a candle aficionado, this is a very luxe element to what is a very affordable candle.
I have been burning the Grapefruit and Lime Candle for a couple of weeks. It does not have any throw of fragrance. At all – really disappointing, but if you are looking to decorate a room and have groupings of candle, this is a great option as they look gorgeous and burn very evenly.
Florence Anne Grapefruit and Lime Candle is available from Boots and retails for twelve pounds.
