When I bought my first scented candle
(Mandarin Cranberry), I didn't know I would
love them so much.
I have always burned lots of candles,
but these are something special.
What I found out is that there are many candles
I love, but there are also many that I dislike or even hate.
I have made an agreement with myself that
I don't collect them just to have them on the shelf.
They are just too expensive to do that.
When I take the risk of buying a candle online
and don't like the smell on cold, I sell it.
I burn like 3 or 4 candles at the same time and am
only allowed to burn a new one when one of
the others is completely burned down.
I have to set certain limitations for myself
because I have always been a collector and I
don't want this "hobby" to get out of hand!
Black Cherry and Honey Clementine are two of
my top favorite scents from Yankee candle that I
will always rebuy. And because I finished
these two, I have chosen the following new ones:
When I sniffed Crunchy Pistachio Vanilla
for the first time, I found it to be very intense.
Honestly, almost too intense for my
taste and I thought about selling it.
However, my daughter loved it so much
that we burned it anyway.
It is very sweet (marzipan) and it's okay, but I
wouldn't buy this scent again,
at least not in a large jar.
My 2nd choice is Moroccan Argan Oil.
It's a heavy scent, but it's very creamy and
it takes me back to Marrakesh
(and we loved Marrakesh!).
I can imagine buying this candle again.
