Candle(s) in the Wind

Friday, June 27, 2014

Since December of last year, I've been obsessed with candles. I discovered said love of candles over the Christmas break of my senior year of college, when I had the freedom to burn candles with actual wicks.

Now that I've graduated, I've had so much fun discovering new scents, and the sheer amount of scents to choose from. I love changing out different scents depending on my mood. Plus, the fact that Bath & Body Works had a semi-annual sale going on didn't hurt, either. ;)

Here are the candles I've been loving lately:

1. Peach Bellini

"A shimmering blend of white peach, sweet orange peel and yellow mandarin with a pop of blackcurrant that sparkles as bright as the sun."

I'd heard great things about this candle via YouTube, and was excited and curious to pick this up. My goodness, it's fabulous. If you like peaches/fruity scents, I highly recommend this one.

2. Espresso Bar

"In Italy, you never take your coffee "to go" - instead you stop and savor the aromas of roasted espresso beans and sweet vanilla froth that inspired this fragrance."

I'll say right now that the candle's description is so accurate. Italians don't seem to get their coffee to go at all. Coffee - espresso, really - is an art for them.

This one's a deviation from the scents I normally purchase. It's not exactly fruity or sugary, but it smells like chocolate with a hint of coffee and it's great. I recently burned it while drinking my morning coffee, and it's surprisingly not too overpowering. Besides, why not have more of what you love?

3. Gelato

"A creamy, sweet blend of raspberry and strawberry with an effervescent sugar-spun finish form the perfect Italian indulgence. Bravo, Bravo!"

I wrote about this candle in my pastels post earlier this week. This one is mild and sweet, almost like the gelato I discovered in Italy. When it's burned, though, it's unmistakably sweet, and I love that.

4. London Calling

"A royal blend of tea, lemon, and sugar. Great traditions from across the pond!"

This one is a surprising frontrunner in my candle collection. I enjoy candles that smell like lemonade, and this one is no exception.

Also, as you can probably tell by the glass, I've burned this one down over halfway already. It's been an excellent and fresh summer fragrance.

I unfortunately couldn't find London Calling or Peach Bellini online to link for y'all. :( However, I found Peach Bellini in-store, so check out your local B&BW if you want to find new scents. :)

Also, I'm not sponsored by B&BW. I just love their candles and wanted to share my favorites with you!

So, have you tried any of these candles? What candles are your favorites?
