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.
Get your orders in now to ensure delivery for Christmas, oh and Witch City Wicks are offering free shipping too. Seriously get some and then you can thank us (and them) because everyone will love their presents and your home will smell amazing!
Their candles are highly scented; they hand blend their fragrances and use the maximum amount of premium essential and fragrance oils possible in candle making.
They are creatively inspired by and love making super scrumptious flavors like Caramel Apple, Key Lime Pie, Cotton Candy and even Maple Bacon!
The Milk & Cookie Candle Company were so lovely to send us a bunch of treats to review…
Pumpkin Latte – If you’re loving your Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks then you’ll love love LOVE this one. When you first smell it you get a sort of pumpkin pie scent but then the coffee hits you! It’s yum.
Donut Shop– Smells exactly like it’s name, and even has sprinkles on top! Makes me want to go out and buy ALL the donuts, like everywhere.
Trick or Treat – This is a combination of tart apples, caramel apple and candy corn. Designed for Fall/Halloween but I’d have it going all year long. It’s sweet but you can really get a hit of the fresh apple scent.
Fresh Baked Bread – You HAVE to get this one, it’s insane! Smells like crusty white bread straight out of the oven. It’s not sweet which I love. Will most definitely be buying this scent again when my tarts run out.
Maple Bacon – Don’t be scared, it’s really good!
For years I’ve always said someone should make maple bacon perfume or candles, it’s one of my most favourite smells ever, and maple bacon is the top reason why I’m like a half ass vegetarian. So I was over the moon when the Milk & Cookie Candle Company sent me Maple Bacon wax melts, I thought I was dreaming. 🙂
Instead of it smelling pork-y (lol) it’s like a maple syrup smokey woody sort of scent, it’s really awesome, I’m amazed.
Over all I’m so impressed with the Milk and Cookie Candle Company; Trisha (the real brains behind the whole thing) is such a sweetheart and a pleasure to work with.
I love that they’re Eco friendly, even using recycled paper and packaging when sending out their products.
The melts give of such a long lasting scent and the packaging is just too cute, with the funky labels and the pretty hand tied bows, and how can you not love anything with sprinkles!
