I am absolutely obsessed with candles at the moment and thought it was about time I wrote a post on the ones I’m loving. Now I have way too many favourite scents and brands to talk about so I thought I’d narrow it down to just Yankee Candle as I think they’re a brand you just can’t go wrong with.
First of all I want to talk about the Christmas scents, I don’t want to talk about them too much as I know they’re now going to be discontinued and they don’t often repeat scents the following year. I had 3 favourite scents in the 2015 range, these were ‘Christmas Eve’, ‘Red Apple Wreath’ and ‘Candy Cane Lane’. They are all pretty sweet smells and ‘Red Apple Wreath’ is a gorgeous spiced apple scent that stays around for hours once you’ve burned it for a while. Luckily I was able to get my jars half the price, in the new years sales.
I also have an oil burner and have been purchasing a lot of wax melts, these are around £2 and my favourite way of testing scents. My favourite ones so far are ‘Clean Cotton’, ‘Lemongrass and Ginger’ and ‘Honey Blossom’, these happen to all be really fresh scents. I find that clean cotton in particular can be really over powering if left to burn for any longer than about an hour. The oil burner itself is gorgeous to look at and my favourite way to burn the candles.
The final two candles I wanted to talk about are ‘Wedding Day’ and ‘Shea Butter’, now ‘Wedding Day’ is a special scent, it was brought by my brother and his fiance for Christmas and I can’t bring myself to burn it yet. ‘Shea Butter’ was bought for me on Valentines Day by Jake, I love this scent and had been debating whether to buy it for a couple of months. It smells of a really light coconut body butter, such a good mix of sweet and fresh.
Because I’m such a candle enthusiast Ive also decided to have some Wedding Day candles dotted around our venue on our big day, I just couldn’t resist!
Let me know some scents/brands that you guys are loving, I’m constantly on the look out for newbies!
