Hello again you lovely lot! So long story short, as soon as it hits October everything Christmassy starts to unveil in the shops (and in our house)… especially candles. Lots and lots of candles. So many of us bloggers absolutely LOVE candles at the moment, so I’m always on the hunt for new and hopefully “inexpensive” scents.
We’ve all heard of the good old Yankee Candles, right? & that means we all know just how much they cost. I only ever tend to buy a large yankee candle jar once a year (which is always at christmas time) to treat myself, I wish I could buy more as they do have the most incredible scents but unfortunately I just can’t afford to. My all time favourites are Candy Cane Lane and Snowflake Cookie, mmm they smell so delicious!
But then the other week I came across THIS beauty!
We occasionally like to check out the candles in Home Bargains, the only problem with their candles is that because they are of a much cheaper price they do tend to smell like every other candle they sell, so 9 times out of 10 they don’t actually smell like the scent it says it should.
Well I tell you what, we were in for a MAHOOSIVE surprise when we smelt this bad boy! They were only selling a couple of Christmas scents, this Gingerbread one and a Mulled Wine one but I wasn’t so keen on the Mulled Wine smell. As soon as we opened this jar the smell of ‘baking Gingerbread men in the oven at Christmas time’ just hit you in the face, it was amazing!
It smells just like what it says it does, pure Gingerbread. This gorgeous smell absolutely fills the whole room and takes away any other smell there might be.
But whats the big deal?! You ask. This candle which is the same size as a LARGE yankee candle jar which usually cost around £21 or £22 is only… £2.99!! & as you can see this candle burns up to 95 hours.. amazingly brilliant.
We have had this candle burning everyday for countless amounts of hours since the day we bought it and it is lasting so well. We have already said we are going back to Home Bargains to buy more than one, so we can fill the whole house with the smell of Gingerbread throughout Christmas. & it’s not very often we will buy more than 1 of the same candle at the same time, so this has made a good impression for sure.
I hope this has helped you if you are a candle lover like me and are always on the look out for the more affordable candles. I can’t recommend this one enough, it really is too much of a good purchase not to buy.
Thanks so much for reading & I hope you all have a lovely day & be happy.
Lots of love, Xandra Rose 🙂 xo
