It was an indulgent treat being sent candles to review. I love watching the flickering light as they burn and the pleasant fragrance they bring to a room. They make our home more inviting, masking the smell of boys and their sweaty socks!
The scented candle shop had such a selection, the hardest part was picking our which ones to try. In the end I mainly settled on the Yankee Candle range as they have a superior burn time, these candles go on and on and on, so prove to be excellent value really! I picked the black cherry as youngest loves cherries I thought if he had a candle scent he liked he might stop his usual trick of trying to burn toys on the wick! It seemed to work as he enjoyed the aroma and left the candle in peace for a change…
I am hoping this is a good sign and I can have candles burning more regularly. I went to a friend’s house and it smelt divine from all the scented candles and wax burners. I would love that same welcome when you step inside our house.
The Yankee Candle Jars look attractive, so even when your not burning the candle they look appealing on the mantelpiece. They varied in price depending on the scent and the special offers, so I will be back to keep adding to our collection especially to browse the sale section and see what bargains I can snap up! The Fluffy Towel scent is very fresh and clean, like strong soap, but I like it as I can give people the impression I do lots of laundry if I burn this candle, they might not notice my overflowing washing basket!
I also picked out a few of the votive samplers (Mandarin Peach, Country Bicycle Ride and Warm Embrace), as they are a good way to experiment with lots of different scents at a very reasonable price (£1.79). Then you can find out your favourite scents without splashing out too much. Although I have a heavy cold today so cannot smell them as well unfortunately, but I promise you when they first arrived they all smelt heavenly!
