I don't burn candles all the time but I especially have a thing about having a candle burning when we have thunderstorms, which this time of year happens a lot. (If the power goes out, at least then I can see my hand in front of my face!) I do use them at other times, but usually in the summer that's mostly when I light candles. It doesn't have to be a scented candle for that purpose, of course, but I do prefer the scented ones if I can find ones I really like. And we've had a lot of showery weather lately, and I was running low so I bought three candles this time. One was the jar style that is what I've always bought in the past but two were other shapes. One is the "tureen" shape which is smaller, and one is a round apothecary jar.
(On my monitor the wax in these looks here like a dark pink. It looks more red in other lights - I think maybe it's actually supposed to be red. Different scents come in different colors, although you can mix scents and I think if you do that you can also choose the color. But I like this color fine so I never even thought about changing it til now.)
Candles by Victoria's website is here. It's not the very easiest website to navigate because all the candles are in one category and there are a lot of different types of candle. (They need to subdivide!) (Also don't be like me and look at all those foody candles on the front page and think they don't have anything else. They do.) They do have the occasional sale but it seems to be more often on the scent shots than on the candles.
For the record, there's no disclosures required here, I paid retail price minus a small "points" discount from my last purchase. (I really like that you don't have to wait til you get a minimum number of points to use them, that's a nice little feature.)
Holly on her favorite scents:
Holly's favorite scents are mostly not my favorites, I have to say. I don't love sweet-smelling things, for the most part. I don't want a candle that smells like cupcakes or breakfast cereal or whatever, and that seems to be what a lot of her picks are. I don't find those scents really repellent, but I don't enjoy smelling them for a long period of time, either. (My favorite scents are spicy or citrusy or green, usually.)
