Burnin' Up #3
August has finally brought the heat here in Minnesota! My home town has not yet hit 90 all summer (crazy, I know - we were 2 degrees away today!) but we have experienced some hot and humid days and so I cracked out some candles that are perfect for the season.
The big candle I've been burning on my kitchen island is Bath & Body Works' Snap Peas, in the oh so cute mason jar glass. The lady who rang me up when I bought this thought it was weird I was purchasing it (and there really weren't many gone from the shelf) but I love novelty scents like this and I had to have it. I think I bought this back in February, so unfortunately I don't believe you can get this in stores, however it is still available on Bath & Body Works' website. It's half off right now! Snap Peas has a very fresh, summery garden scent and truly smells like you're sticking your nose in a bag of sugar snap peas. It doesn't give off a super strong scent, but it will make wherever you put it smell fresh and earthy.
Lemon Mint Leaf is my bathroom candle. This is just a little mini, also made by Bath & Body Works. This is a super old candle that I've had sitting on my shelf waiting to burn for way too long. My husband commented how much scent the little candle had, and he's right - this lil' thang packs a punch! It smells absolutely delightful, really fresh and clean and exactly like you'd expect lemon + mint to smell. I don't love these teeny candles because they don't last very long, but I think I got this on sale a long time ago so I figured I better just burn it up already.
What are you burning? Have you tried either of these candles? Let me know!
