My winter favouites: Day 2

2. Candles 
   This season I have been absolutely LOVING candles, especially Yankee candles and a few of the Green Earth candles. I think candles set the atmosphere amazingly and are just great for relaxing in your home at Winter/Christmas time. They also smell AMAZING!
  I have also started using candles when I want to have a relaxing bath, they just make the atmosphere so calming and they just make baths a much more pleasant experience.
  My personal fave candles at the moment are:

Fair scented tin candle - Caramel apple
$8.99 (13oz / 368.5g)

These are relatively hard to get your hands on in England as 'Green earth stores' is an American business, but i was lucky enough to have a relative to bring me this back, I LOVE IT!!! It has such a lovely sweet but tangy scent, but it isn't very wintery, oh well, it smells great! 
  I also love the tin it comes in, its very nice and looks good anywhere!

Yankee Jar candle - Christmas cupcake
 £6.29 (3.7oz / 104g)

This has a delightful scent of rich vanilla with an 'overtone' of butter cream icing. DELICIOUS. Remember, its not edible! :D  It is a simple fragrance but it is very nice and it suits the time of year. 

Yankee jar candle - Christmas Eve
£8.39 (3.7oz / 104g)

I haven't started to use this candle frequently yet as it isn't even December but i have tested it and it is VERY Christmassy. It's guaranteed that I will be using this candle on Christmas Eve because it is just so Christmassy. Just. So. Christmas. It smells of sugar plums and candied fruits with a sort of smoky-ish undertone that remines me of a fire burning in a fire-place on Christmas Eve. Overall it is such a sweet and cosy fragrance which I am going to be using loads over Christmas!

Jelly Belly candle - Very Cherry

Believe it or not this candle smells like cherry, it smells gorgeous and it is very sweet. I love the jar it comes in too, it looks like a sweet jar and the candle looks adorable pretty much anywhere. Most of the Jelly Belly candles smell amazing but I enjoy this one the most.
