Smell of a decade: 1970 candle by Bella Freud at Space NK

How do you like the idea of your house or apartment smelling like a hipster's hangout from the 1970s? If you do, you might want to invest in this 1970 candle by Bella Freud at Space NK.

Light the candle and you are promised to get a nose full of the 'rich fragrant incense' that was a trademark of the early part of that decade. That has been recreated using Frankincense, Myrrh, Oakmoss and Patchouli oils, along with Musk, Sandalwood and Vetivert for a 'rich intensity'.

The reviews on the retailer's site are a little mixed. One said she was ' transported back to the hippie shops I frequented as a teenager', while another claimed it 'sometimes remind me of mothballs'.

So you might want to nip into the retailer's store before you buy on the off chance you can have a sniff. it retails for £38.
