Cucumber&Aloe – I know y’all know I don’t like banana or lavender but one other scent (and food) I hate is cucumber, so I sorta panicked when I saw that Trish had sent me a Cucumber&Aloe scented tart, but honestly it was fabulous! The aloe really changed the scent and it made me feel like I was in a spa. It was light and refreshing and very uplifting. Highly recommend this scent.
Cinnamon Red Hots – I love cinnamon and I just adored this melt, it lasted days and days, I think maybe because cinnamon is just naturally a strong scent, but probably because it was so well made.
Luscious Lemon Poundcake – This was one of the first scents I ever tried from the M&C and I remember loving it but I genuinely forgot how delicious it smelled till I got it again. Tart lemon, sweet vanilla and buttery cakey yumminess, it’s heavenly.
Waffle Cone – Sooooo delicious, sweet and yummy! Smells like a classic cookie wafer made with creamy butter and vanilla swirled through it.
My bad for not taking pics as they were melting, but trust me they were all amazing and well made. Milk&Cookies candles have an unbelievable scent throw and they never cease to amaze me with all the unique scents and fabulous products.
If you haven’t guessed already, I’m a massive Milk&Cookie Candle Company fan, they’ve sent us products to review but I actually buy from them as well. My candle cupboard was looking a little bare so I knew I had to stock up on some tarts…
Pineapple Upside Down Cake – I’m currently on a cherry/pineapple kick, and I love making Pineapple Upside Down Cake for my boyfriend so I knew I had to get this one. It super pineapple-y but has a hint of vanilla buttery cake-iness, very very yummy!
Vanilla Supreme – Like a rich real vanilla, super creamy ice-cream. I’ve been using this in the warmer in my bedroom, it’s a really comforting scent, perfect for bedtime.
Cherry Cheesecake – This scent is unreal, it’s exactly like Cherry Cheesecake and you can smell every layer of the scent; the buttery biscuit base, the tart and sweet creamy cheese filling and then the yummy cherry topping.Delicious.
Blue Hawaiian – This is my ultimate happy scent! It a mixture of Coconut, Maraschino Cherry and Pineapple, three scents that I just love all mixed together. It’s really uplifting and I highly recommend it.
Cherry Cola – See I told you I was on a cherry kick at the moment. I’d never tried this scent before but I was super intrigued by it. I was pleasantly surprised, it smells like cola gummy bottles and cherry candies. Just another scent I wanted to eat LOL.
Patchouli – I surprised Trish when I requested this scent, cause y’all know I’m not crazy
about floral scents, but I ordered a set of Patchouli melts for my Mom, cause it’s her favourite scent. She was so surprised when I sent it and said it was fabulous!
Sam gave me this ages ago… it was sat in my candle box for months before I had a proper root in that box and was like “what are you doing in here?” The packet then sat on the table by the front door ready to go into my car the next time I went out. Yeah. That didn’t happen. Anyway a week or so passed and I have been so happy with our new home, we’ve been living here for two years now but it still feels so new. I like that feeling. I obviously have worked on different ways of fragrancing our house, it is mainly open plan so it can prove difficult.
But the room I struggled most with was the family bathroom. I hate overpowering scents but I wanted something that had enough smell but I didn’t want the boys to hate it. That is quite a task, believe me! I had tried many pot pourri efforts (and is it just me or do they not smell for long any more?) and also I had lit some candles before we had visitors to make it smell lovely. But I wanted something a bit more everyday and something I didn’t need to tend to. So I grabbed the air freshener from the table downstairs and hung it over the window handle. It was a complete guess as to whether this would work, it did! Read More
While on a visit to England, I went out shopping and was immediately drawn to a store called Aroma (yeah you’re totally not surprised right?!) It had lots of my favourite goodies like Yankee Candle and Bomb Cosmetics and even better they were having a 20% off everything sale, whoop whoop! Read More
We’ve been a bit obsessed with Witch City Wicks for a long time now so it was such a nice surprise to wake up a couple days ago to a delivery of lots of lovely candles and treats all the way from Salem, Massachusetts.
Words can’t express how personally excited I am to be working with Witch City Wicks, I’ve always had a love for all things spooky and witchy and dream of one day visiting Salem, and bringing back suitcases and suitcases filled with amazing candles and tarts.
We’ll have a few reviews coming, because we got so many goodies but first up let us tell you about their amazing Holiday range.
We were sent some lovely tealights and lots of votives to review…
Blue Spruce – “A strong pine scent that’s reminiscent of a winter walk in the woods.” Normally we stay well clear of pine scented things, not massive fans of them but there is just something so lovely and fresh about Blue Spruce, think it’s converted us, plus the colour is gorgeous.
Peppermint Bark – “A mouth watering combination of dark chocolate with a punch of peppermint.” No words…. we’ve never smelled anything quite so amazing. I would’ve never really gone out of my way to buy mint scented candles, but I’m officially hooked. This is creamy, chocolatey, minty, fresh and just heavenly. Another candle we worked hard not to eat…
Amaretto Egg Nog – “This creamy eggnog is a holiday warmer of sweet almond and vanilla.” You had us at Amaretto. This is just a lovely boozey, nutty, vanilla candle and we’re obsessed with it’s yumminess.
Merry Mistletoe – “A blend of citrus, blue spruce, and frosted cranberries create this perfect holiday scent!” You can really smell the cranberry and citrus notes in this candle and you know how we love citrus scents. It reminds us of home on a Christmas day.
Sugar Cookie – “Fresh baked, buttery cookies right from the oven.” No better way to describe it than that, and honestly the best sugar cookie candle we’ve ever tried!
Cranberry Balsam – “Get into the spirit with wonderful blend of cranberry with fresh greenery of balsam fir.” This candle smells insanely good, the only way we can describe it is, imagine decorating your real Christmas tree with fresh cranberries, sounds so good right?!
We love votives here at V&L, cause then we can try new ones faster. These votives burned amazingly well in our little holders and the scent off them was unreal.
I always say never underestimate the fabulousness of a simple tealight; I honestly don’t think people realise how good a well made highly fragranced tealight can be.Witch City Wicks proved that I’m right once again, with their amazing little hunks of wax greatness.
These tealights are jammed with fragrance and as soon as you light them you can smell them everywhere, actually you can smell them even before you light them!
The gingerbread scent is so good, another candle we wanted to eat! It’s like spicy and creamy with hints of vanilla, just so yummy.
