Candles Haul


Hi Everyone!

Today’s post features some gorgeous candles I absolutely love!  Two are the famous Yankee candles in different sizes and the third is from the well known store, Marks and Spencer.

The biggest candle (in size medium) has a fragrance called ‘A Child’s Wish’.  This smell is meant to remind you of childhood days playing in the back garden surrounded by gorgeous smelling flowers. Personally, I would describe this fragrance as being like a meadow filled with an array of beautiful flowers with a slight hint of apple. It is amazing. I can’t stop smelling it and I just love it!  The fragrance also matches the colour of this candle perfectly, a pale, slightly shimmery green. 

The packaging of this candle is really nice too. It comes in a lovely glass jar with a lock in glass lid which not only looks nice when the candle is displayed or burning but also to store things in once it’s all used up! The burn time of this size jar is 65-90 hours and it is priced at £16.99 at Clinton Cards. Smaller and bigger versions are also available.

The second Yankee candle is ‘True Rose’.  The name says it all about the fragrance, the beautiful smell of fresh roses. The colour of this candle is a gorgeous highly pigmented matte, red and comes in a nicely sized glass jar with a plastic lid.  Again, this jar is re-useable once you’ve finished your candle so you really can make the most out of this product. This candle is priced at £9.45 at Clinton Cards. Smaller and bigger versions are also available.

Lastly, the cream candle in the pink/burgundy jar is from Marks and Spencer.  It doesn’t smell of anything, I just think it looks really pretty in the glass!  I bought this sometime last year so I’m afraid I can’t remember the price now.. I think it was somewhere around the £12.00 mark but I could be wrong, it doesn’t look like it’s on the website anymore either although there are variations of it if you’re interested in taking a look.

What is your favourite candle?

    I love candles! I got some brilliant ones from ikea for about 95p which I wasn't expecting great things from them but they are fab 🙂 I do think I should invest in some Yankees though 😀 x

    I really like Yankee Candles, even without lighting them, they still smell nicely scented, xoxo.
