Candle Comparisons

Like many others at this time of year, I love lighting a candle a few times a week. Last year the candle brand that appeared to pop up everywhere was Lily Flame and so I requested the Chocolate Truffle in a tin for Christmas. I was pleased with the packaging but was slightly disappointed when it didn't smell like the real deal and didn't disperse around the room quickly.












This year Yankee Candles and Jonathan Ward seem to be the big thing in candle world (to me). I am going to put my hands up and say that I am a bit cheap when it comes to candles and so I decided to buy a few samplers of the Yankee Candles. I shopped around and came across Yankee.co.uk where I found some which were on special offer. As you can see I bought Candy Corn (which smells quite warm and sweet), Baby Powder ( light soft scent, not very strong which disappointed me) and Christmas Cookie (which smells like vanilla cookies)!











If you are looking for a cheap and highly fragranced candle I would recommend Jelly Belly - I got the Toasted Marshmallow candle and it smells beautiful (if you like foody scents)!
Also has anyone tried any candles from Bake Boutique? They all sound scrumptious!

i love smelly candles but mainly flower smells and citrus, not sure about cookies and marshmallow though it would make me feel hungry all the time xx

@Jon Boy - Haha strangely I find that the foodie scents help crave my hunger! ;)

I would love to try these scents! I love yummy tasty candles... (haha wax), however I only burn soy/natural candles, because of the toxins in the ingredients.

@Rubiiee - I haven't tried soy candles before.. I should change that! :P
