I am comfortably tucked in bed, while a candle patiently burns away. Those who know me, (and now my family) know that we are candle hoarders. Somewhere someplace in the house will be a box filled with scents of varying kinds. We tend to love our musty cinnamon smells the most and have, by virtue of experience, realised that not everyone takes a fancy to such strong smells. I have been asked on various occasions if I am brewing something fishy in my room. Oh well.
Here is a small and simple roundup of some candles I have loved throughout the season. International brands and Indian brands.
01. Bath and Body Works’ Merry Cookie
If you want your house smelling like you’ve been baking a cake-a-day, this is it. The smell is sweet, strong and very feminine. If this was edible, I’d eat it up in a heartbeat.
02. Yankee Candle’s Harvest
Corn husks being slowly roasted. Or a bake cooking away in your grandmum’s oven. That’s what this smells like. Musty yet pleasant, the candle has an extremely strong scent.
03. Fragrance People’s Midnight Jasmine
Subtle hints of jasmine flowers. What more can you ask from a candle. When I’m not in the mood for spicy or sweet scents, this is what I turn to. Very calming and extremely pleasant.
04. Pure Home + Living’s Apple Cinnamon candles
Yes, yes. I see what you thought there. Everything smells edible? Oh yes my friend!
This smells insane. Granted it smells stronger unburned, but the subtle smell of spicy apples is enough on its own.
Yankee Candle Hazelnut Coffee
The Fragrance People’s Lemongrass
What candles are you burning these days? Have you tried any of these?
Till next time!
