So something fantastic happened to me last week on the social networking site Twitter, I won 2 beautiful looking scented candles in a competition run by a lovley company called Primrose Candles being a bit obcessed with candles, as you can imagine I was very happy indeed.
When my package came earlier today I was very excited, I was also pretty impressed straightaway because as soon as I was holding the package in my hands unopened, I could instantly smell the candles & the scent was simply incredible and I couldn’t wait to open it. I was really happy that the candles had been well wrapped and it was clearly stated on the box that they were fragile, which was brilliant.
As soon I opened the box & after taking out a lot of the wrapping inside, there they were and they looked so much more gorgeous than in the photographs I viewed, the pictures just doesn’t do them justice, they are so pretty.
So these candles are beautifully presented in a good solid tumbler style glass container wrapped in clear plastic tied with a lovley ribbon in a bow, which I thought was very cute.
The bigger candle of the two which is named Peek A Boo & is a 30cl Natural Wax Scented Candle.
Sealed with a shiny mirror effect lid and a rubber seal on the underside. As soon as I had removed the lid the scent was much stronger but not too overpowering, just a really beautiful relaxing aroma that comes from the candle.
It is very hard to describe what the scent actually is, but in my own opinion it is like a calming, musk, vanilla type of scent. I love smelling this candle, it is just amazing. Definately the type of candle I would choose if I came across it in the shops.
I am really excited to light this candle although I don’t want to light it straight away because it is just so pretty, it makes me want to just keep it and not light it haha!. I think I will save it for a perfect night in relaxing with a movie or save it for a pamper night. Overall this is a candle I would purchase again & when this has all gone I think I will.
The smaller candle is named Pumpkin Pie & is 20cl, it’s not that much smaller really than the bigger one.
This candle I love that little bit more because the scent is just indescribable but amazing! As soon as I held this candle I could smell how great it was and although I love the other candle as well, this candle is my favourite out of the two & the one I am more excited about. The best way I can describe the aroma of the Pumpkin Pie candle is Autumn!
It is just Autumn in a candle, everything that makes you think of Autumn is just here in this scent. All I can think of when smelling it is: warmth, Autumn nights, sitting in front of the fire watching a movie. It is again just a very musky smell but with a spicy tone to it, like cinnamon. I’ve not smelt a Pumpkin Pie candle before but this is definately a candle I’m going to make sure that I have this in at least one room in my home from now on.
