Transforming from a none-candle burner to one who constantly has one flickering away as I sit at my desk or read was a vastly accelerated process over this past year. Candles are a recent addition to my growing home essentials list, previously never really being one to splash my cash on their waxy goodness. Not long ago my mum gave me a Yankee candle tumbler in vanilla cupcake and I instantly fell in love. Hello my new mini obsession.
This summer I managed to pick up two of the much raved about Bath & Body Works 3-wick candles when I was in New York. Needless to say they’ve now become my favourites, I dread the day when their flames burn out. One of the scents I picked up was Frosted Cupcake, a deliciously sweet blend of fresh vanilla bean, sugar, cake batter and rich buttercream frosting. Almost good enough to eat while succeeding in dousing the upstairs of my house in its beautiful aroma. My favourite part? The value. With a price of $20 there is a regular (as in all the time) deal on which would give you two candles for $22. What a bargain! £50 on a Neom candle? Ain’t nobody got time for that.
I can guarantee I will be picking up at least four of these next time I visit the states. Believe the raves guys!
Have you ever tried B&BW candles? What's your favourite scent?
