It's still really cold in my area of the universe, so that means candles burn pretty much every evening I'm home at a decent time. Who am I kidding?... I burn candles all year long. But doesn't it just feel MORE right when it's cold out?
Anyway, I thought I'd show you what I've burned up and whether or not you should go out and spend your money on these wax goodies.
I made my way through a couple Christmas-y candles this season. I'm actually a little disappointed by how few I burned considering how many I have in backstock to use up. On the left, in the gorgeous jar that I'm definitely going to repurpose, is Merry Misletoe from Bath & Body Works. It's described as a blend of cranberries, pears, frosted citrus and a hint of holiday greenery. It definitely has more than a hint of holiday greenery, as that's the number one thing I pick up on. This is a favorite of mine during the holidays and I'll definitely pick it up again if they re-release it next Christmas.
On the right is another Bath & Body Works favorite, 'Tis the Season. This smell really is Christmas in a jar. It's described as red apples, green pine and a touch of cider. It's so festive and it has a great throw. I love burning this at Christmas time and I'll totally buy it again in the future.
A couple minis worth noting. The blue jar is Bath & Body Works' Winter candle. This candle usually makes an appearance in the B&BW line up each winter. It smells really nice, characterized by pine needles, citrus and white woods. I know a lot of people think these minis are worthless and won't smell up your room, but you just need to put it in a small enough room. I keep minis like this in my bathroom and they always give off plenty of scent throw.
I used up my last Old Factory candle, this one in the scent Hot Cocoa. I did a full review on these candles a while back. This is a soy candle that smelled exactly like a warm mug of hot cocoa. I enjoyed the scent of this and it burned really well, down to the very bottom with almost nothing left. I'd definitely consider getting more candles from this company in the future.
Just one pack of wax melts this month, and these are ScentSationals' Fresh Air. You can find this brand at Walmart. This does smell fresh and clean, and it's a relatively unoffensive scent. These are jam packed with smell and it'll fill your whole house with just one cube. I really enjoyed these.
What candles or wax melts have you been burning in your home? I'd love to know what you've been enjoying!
