Winter isn’t my favourite season, but I do enjoy the dark nights which mean you can light a few candles and get really cosy. Since moving in to my own house I have become a little candle obsessed – they are everywhere, and I can’t get enough of them!
From tealights to the larger jars, candles are the perfect addition to a lounge, bedroom or bathroom. In fact there is nothing I like more than running a bath, turning all the lights off and relaxing by candlelight. They create a real ambience in the lounge too and the different scents really make your rooms smell pleasant too.
But with some of the larger candles becoming quite costly it was great to stumble across United Candles and their more reasonably prices candles – which are as nice, if not nicer, than some of the big brand names you typically find in stores.
These seasonal scents are perfect in the run up to the festive period. With a sweeter “Gingerbread House” scent and a forest-fresh “Sparkling Evergreen” scent I am now spoilt for choice! I will admit that the evergreen candle isn’t one I would typically select, normally I would go for something fruit or sweet orientated.
However, I am glad I did because this really brings a different flavour in to the mix and has my room smelling delicious indeed. The gingerbread version I am trying my best to save until closer to Christmas Day to ensure my house is smelling as festive as possible for when my guests arrive – but I think I may fail and have to stock up again before then!!
These candles retail at just £9.99 or £12.99 for a slightly larger 18oz version and are available at Amazon or via other United Candle stockists. These candles have lasted a really long time already and so are definitely worth the money, and at that price point I actually think they are very good value for money.0
