TKmaxx Candles



Hope everyone is enjoying this bank holiday weekend! I picked up a couple of candles whilst TKmaxx and since they have such pretty packaging, I just thought I'd share them on the blog because such prettiness mustn't be hidden away!




The first one I picked up is this simple, elegant one for £6.99. It gives off a subtle rose syrup scent, "pleasantly aromatic" just like the label says. What sold this to me was it's wooden wick! I've never seen one and didn't even think one existed but there you go, a wooden wick. Not only does it look super cool, it also sounds super cool. It makes a similar noise to wood burning in a campfire, perfect for setting a relaxing ambiance.
 


The next one is £7.99. Not going to lie, I already knew that I was going to buy this when I saw the candle jar. It came in 3 different colours, yellow, orange, and blue. Obviously I picked up the yellow one. The smell is a very nostalgic scent for me, it reminds me of mosquito repellent which brings back memories from when I used to live in Malaysia. I find this smell oddly soothing and could not stop smelling it even when it is not lit. Extremely happy with this purchase, and I will have an adorable jar with lid when it runs out!


Hope you enjoyed this post,
Grace

  2. These look absolutely lovely! I'm quite picky when it comes to scented candles as a lot of the time I tend to be a little overwhelmed by the scent as soon as the candle burns for a while. I love Citronella candles too though, especially if you light them outside. They just bring back so many summer memories! :)

    1. Oh me too, think my all time favourite candle is the one by Liz Earle but I am just not willing to spend £30 on a candle! It breaks my heart/bank account hahaha! Thanks for stopping by :)
