Hello, friends! Welcome to Blogmas Day 4! (Blogmas Day 3 here)
First, I want to apologize for the crappy picture. I had another one that was far less crappy, but it somehow got deleted from my camera. How do these things happen? So I had to take a quick one while it was getting rapidly darker outside. Sigh.
Anyways, I’m very excited, since I’m now fully stocked on Christmas candles. I do love those warm fall/winter scents way more than, say, something fruity. Right now I have Tis the Season lit and it’s filling the room with delicious Christmas-y scents. Pure heaven.
- evergreen : white fir needles, fresh cedarwood, sweet sap
- tis the season : rich red apples, sweet cinnamon, cedarwood
- winter : orange and fir needle essential oils, clove
- marshmallow fireside : toasted vanilla, cedarwood essential oil
Tis the Season is definitely THE classic Christmas scent, in my opinion. It reminds me of going into any sort of craft store during the holidays. Or when grocery stores have those cinnamon stick broom things out.
It was an absolute necessity for me to get a Christmas tree-scented candle. I don’t have an actual tree in my apartment, and the scent of Evergreen definitely fills that sad void for me.
Did I get Winter just for the cute little bear on the packaging? Maybe. But it also smells DIVINE. I think its the mix of that citrusy orange and fir needles.
And now for the wild card: Marshmallow Fireside. I normally stray away from candles that smell like food, mainly because they just smell real gross to me (sorry if I offend anyone that actually loves those <3). But when I was walking around the store, I kept going back to smell this one. I feel like it’s the cedarwood oil in it. Have you noticed that I have a thing for cedarwood? But they mixed in the vanilla in a way that wasn’t too sweet and overpowering, which I love.
Anyone else go on a Christmas candle binge during the holidays? Lemme know!
