Always have a normal 'Dinner' candle burning at dinner time.
When watching TV, have candle burning, which I find very relaxing. Enjoy Lavender, melon or sea-spray as perfumed ones' only. Some are way too sickly sweet, & strong for me, so avoid them, as headache producing.
Buy from Dusk, when they've a good sale on, but other than that, get at '$2' stores.
I LOVE Yankee candles. Their fragrance can't be surpassed (in my opinion). The purchase price in Australia though is quite high sooooo......I waited until I travelled overseas and bought quite a few at 75% off the original price. I'd have to say that junk shop candles initially are perfumed but this disappears very quickly leaving you with a basic unscented candle handy for a blackout.
Don't know if you are in Brisbane Vee but if you are check out the Twilight Market in King George Square for these candles. If not in Brisbane the website is www.flametreearomatics.com.au. These are soy candles and burn for a pretty long time. Prices are very competitive too - don't know about their delivery charges though if you are outside Brisbane. They really are fabulous candles, although I am obviously speaking about the black raspberry - she has many other scents.
No, I don’t do candles, nor have any space to put lighted candles, but a friend keeps giving them too as presents, so I just put them into a cupboard.
My lovely sister-in-law used to light 1 nightly, as she was going to bed, for years, after her only son died in a car accident. I thought that was a lovely thing to do.
I buy Lovlee Candles, they are sold at Markets around Brisbane, I think she also has an online shop., They smell divine plus she only uses Soy and quality products. Ever smelt a Monkey Fart? Well she has it......Bananas.
I always buy 100% soy candles. I buy from Melting Memories Adelaide, they often have stalls at markets in Adelaide and stock goats milk soaps to melts to soy candles in heaps of fragrances. Have to get in quick though as she sells out of the soaps and popular scents quickly. Also does Bomboniere Favours too. I sms her on 0410 562763 to find out where she is selling next.
I love buying the gorgeous fragranced candles from Armstrong & Phillips in Lilydale. They are the only commercially made, fully Australian candles left in Australia. Buy on line or in person. The prices are excellent, they burn for ages, and smell divine. I love driving out to buy in person, and find many gifts for others as well. They are really good with Soy & Wax, oils, holders, sachets etc.
