For me, winter is the perfect time to burn candles – I find the summer (at least here anyway) is a bit too hot for extra flames to be thrown about. Since moving to the USA, I’ve become a Bath and Body Works convert and I thought today, I’d do a little round up of what’s been burning currently in my room, what’s up next and what I’ve actually used up.
I’ll kick things off with the sad “what I’ve used up” category – and actually there’s only one candle in this pile (although my two “currently burnings” might as well be in here too as there’s about half an inch of wax left in them..). It’s the Autumn candle, which I’ve written about here.
On my “to be used” list are three candles: Sweater Weather, Flannel and Fresh Sparkling Snow. I know what two of these (Sweater Weather and Fresh Sparkling Snow) smell like because I’m currently burning a Sweater Weather and I’m using the Fresh Sparking Snow Body Cream. However, for those who want a bit more of a description, here goes. Sweater Weather is kind of fresh. Kind of a cop out, but whenever I burn it, I feel as though I’m walking through a forest, you know? Key scents that pop out at me as sage and wood, as well as eucalyptus. Fresh Sparkling Snow is fresh too, but in a different way. It’s certainly sweeter than Sweater Weather. In here you can really smell the melon and pear. Flannel is the only one that I’ve not got any real experience with – in fact I bought it on a bit of a whim.. However, upon first sniff you can smell the musk, and some kind of wood-y smell (oop, I’m not wrong – the label says mahogany..). It kind of reminds me of cologne, actually.
Now, as for the “currently burning” category are two candles; Sweater Weather which I’ve already mentioned and Heirloom Apple (definitely more of a fall scent, but it’s still going!). Heirloom Apple is literally the most apple-y candle I’ve ever had in my life. But it’s not like walking through an orchard at all. In fact, it’s quite sweet because of the hints of marshmallow, but not too sweet as it’s counteracted by wood undertones.
I think the next candle I burn is going to have to be Fresh Sparkling Snow. I’m super excited to use it! Do you have any favorite winter candles? Let me know below!
