Between the 1st and the 12th of December, each day we will be featuring a local business who have kindly donated a prize for the competition. Each day we will be asking a question inspired by the business and at the end of the twelve days you will be invited to submit your answers. We will then select one lucky winner who will take home all twelve prizes, just in time for Christmas.
The fledgeling local business Compass Candles was founded by Sam Crouch earlier this year. Compass Candles specialise in hand poured natural Soy Wax candles with a cedar wooden wick.
Sam began making candles back in November 2015 when he decided to give his family more of a creative gift last Christmas. After mixed success at the beginning, he managed to perfect the art and started making small quantities of candles to sell to family and friends. After receiving glowing feedback from his colleagues at work, Sam decided to make it official and turn it from a hobby into a business.
After initially offering Crème Brulee and Coconut & Lime scents, Sam then began receiving requests for particular scents from the guys at work like Bay Rum and Sandalwood. Their list of scents carried has grown further to include Rhubarb & Vanilla and Lime, Basil & Mandarin.
Sam has teamed up with a host of local business including The Barbership, The Bureau of Change, Love Southsea and ourselves. To be in with a chance to win a Christmas Spice candle then you must correctly answer the question below.

a) Spain b) India c) China d) England
