Cassis with it's blackcurrant scent. So whilst prepping up a pretty tasty dinner, I popped this candle on the shelf as I measured out my cups of lentils, and diced some peppers. Considering it's described as 'vibrantly stimulating', I found that is wasn't as vibrant as I thought. It almost seemed relaxing in the kitchen, yet with just the right amount of scent of sweet blackcurrant berries. This scented candle may have just swayed me towards stronger scents.
Shea Butter (nope, not because it was white - OK.. partly!) with Yankee Candle labelling it 'pure contentment'. Now that's a candle I like, and it certainly did not disappoint. As I've been away a lot and have had little time to relax, I decided to settle down in the dressing room with a good book, some nail varnish and body butter and a handful of chocolates, and breathed in this smooth scent with hints of fruit blossoms. If there's one candle that makes me feel calm, this is top of my list.
Aloe Water surprised me too. I knew it was to go one way or another, I'd either really like it or really dislike it, and move it to the bathroom to collect dust. BUT, I officially LOVE it. I cannot quite explain the scent from this candle, except it's refreshing smell, mixed with a hint of aloe, truly makes this the best candle to relax to. It's been by my bedside most evenings, popped up next to the bath with me, and even been on the coffee table during the evenings. Aloe Water, you are currently my new favourite scent. Winner!
