So I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to candles, my idea of a cosy night in involves a room just filled with lit scented candles. I have created quite a collection over this last year and wanted to share my opinions on them all and what I think is the best candle that I have.
I’ll start with the cheapest ones and what I think of them!
So the Langley Home Sugar Cookie candle was bought from Clinton’s. Since it was out of season when my boyfriend got it (as a little gift) it was £5 which I thought was an amazing price for such a big candle. It has the same style as the big yankee ones and is highly scented. The sweet smell is so rich and really nice for if you want a nice home baking scent to fill the room. They have a very similar one in their out of season range, I think it’s called birthday cake but do not quote me on that one! The other two are my Star Lytes candles, these I think I bought in a pound shop, they are very cute, come with lids on too, I just don’t know where they’ve gone and come in many different scents. These two are in “fresh cherries” and “mulled wine”. The mulled wine one is a very nice scent and does fill the room but I think the fresh cherry one doesn’t so much. Still really good for the price of them and have lasted a long time!
Next on to my Yankee Candles!
I have actually spoke about the Vanilla Cupcake candle before in my January Favourites at the start of the year. It has the most amazing sweet scent and I would recommend it to anyone with a sweet tooth. This one of mine is actually right at the bottom now so I will definitely need to get a big one next time. The Fresh Cut Roses scented candle was given to me by my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day this year. It is so beautiful, I love the baby pink colour of it and the scent is so fresh, it actually smells like you have roses in the room. I absolutely love these candles. The only flaw they have is when you first light them the wick does tend to burn really high, so I tend to keep these candles well away from things (as you should with any candle but especially these ones!).
Now for my favourite!
The Village Candle in Black Cherry, I think this has got to be my favourite by far. It has the most amazing scent to it and it actually fills the room. Every time I light more than one of all of the candles you can always smell this one the most. Also, they are a lot cheaper online than Yankee Candles! Arguably better too! It has two wicks even though it is a small candle which I think makes for a more even scent give off and the candle goes down evenly. Definitely would recommend.
So that is all of my candles! Is there any that you would recommend?
