As I’ve mentioned in past posts, with the changing of the seasons also comes the change of scents in my home. To my dismay, however, the Yankee Candle that I have frequented in seasons past is no longer around so I had to search for another supplier of scents to quench my thirst for Spring candles. Luckily there is a Bath and Body Works located right next door to the old Yankee Candle store I went to so I popped in there for a sniff. Here are the scents that I picked up, along with a candle I purchased last Spring that I’ll be putting back into rotation.
Fresh Cut Lilacs – This is a no frills, all Lilac kind of scent. I have honestly never smelt a candle that represented its flower so spot on. If you like the scent of lilac, you’ll love this candle.
Sunlit Garden – I hate sickly sweet scents so I wasn’t so sure about the pear but I actually love this scent. It’s a clean, sweet, grassy floral scent that reminds me of a Spring day out on the soccer fields after it’s rained and everything smells fresh. Paired with the Lilac scent it truly smells like a garden in my apartment.
Wild Honeysuckle – Funny story, I’ve actually purchased this candle twice by accident. I saw it in different packaging and thought it was a different scent but nope, the nose knows what it likes. This candle is a very light, very sweet honeysuckle scent that can fill up a room SUPER quickly.
Coconut Milk Mango – Ok, so I didn’t actually purchase this candle but that’s only because I had just bought the other two. And I usually don’t love scents that sound like foods (ie. cupcakes, cake batter, sugar cookie) but this is an exception. It smells like a glorious smoothie/milkshake that I would definitely overeat had it been in food form.
