In the last month or so, I have seemed to be unable to stop myself from buying candles. My favourite budget options are from Ikea and Dunelm, but recently I’ve been buying the odd votive from Yankee Candle. I’m going to blame my boyfriend for this since he bought me two for my birthday and now I can’t stop.
Starting with the candles that he bought me, I own Christmas Cookie and Snowflake Cookie. My boyfriend says that he wanted to buy me smells that he liked, but also ones that I’d like. Apparently this means sweet candles which smell like baked goods. Christmas Cookie smells exactly like sugar cookies which I had in America, and Snowflake Cookie smells more like an iced cookie that you’d have over here.
On my birthday, I was going to treat myself to Candy Cane Lane but my boyfriend also bought me that when we were out. The peppermint scent reminds me of Christmas since every year my mum buys me a box of candy canes to hang on the tree. This is the one Christmas candle that I promised myself I would buy this year, and if it burns just as beautifully as it smells, I’ll definitely be stocking up on these.
As mentioned in my York Haul, I bought Cranberry Ice and Candy Corn. I was lusting after Candy Corn for the entirety of October but nowhere seemed to sell the votive and I didn’t want the full sized candle. However, on Halloween I popped into a gift shop and they had 20% off their Halloween scents, so I finally managed to pick it up. It smells just like Candy Corn which is a very sweet fudgy smell (basically perfect for Halloween). Cranberry Ice was bought from the Yankee Candle shop and smells like a combination of winter berries and cherryade, aka my absolutely favourite smells for candles (sweet, but not too sweet).
If you’re anything like me and love candles, autumn and winter are the best time to buy and light them and I can’t wait to get these burning!
