I know, I can’t believe what I saw either.
I’m not normally a candle-burner and I am sensitive and particular to smells. (I am one of those people who can smell cucumber, celery, rain, coriander, etc) I absolutely do not enjoy sweet milky smells unless it’s a real cupcake or cookie baking. I have tried a couple of the Glade candles (the Lavender and the colour-changing candle) a while ago and I love them but most of the time I hesitate buying candles just because I don’t think they’re worth the price.
I went to K-Mart (Australia) the other day and found these little candles for $1 each! I know, out of all places to find candles. But hey, Australia don’t have Bed Bath and Beyond and so the ever so popular Slatkin & Co. and Yankee candles are almost impossible to find (unless if I buy them online). I was of course sceptical as to how these candles smell, but at the same time I couldn’t resist smelling all the scents they had.
The candle that I picked up was the first candle I smelt and oh my, it smells fresh and fruity and delicious. Then I thought I should smell the other ones too – bad choice. They all smelt horrible to me and I hated them.
In the end what made me buy this candle was the price. For $1, even if it doesn’t make my room smell nice, at least I will have a candle for possible future photography projects.
The candle is burning on my desk right now and it has been for the past maybe 20 minutes and yeah I do smell it from here. So I guess the $1 was definitely worth it.
Anyway, do check these candles out. TIP: I heard that the correct way to smell candles at the store is to smell the lid. That way, all the scents are already “mushed” together and you’re not just smelling one element of the candle.
Let me know if you like these kinds of posts so I can do more!
Lots of smiles,
