Isle of Skye candles winter warmer
Pure candles sweet fig
I recently branched out from my usual Diptyque Baies, Violette, and Chevrefeuille scents to try the Foin Coupe fragrance, and it's divine! Smells almost exactly like new-mown hay, light and fresh and a little sweet. A barn smell without the BARN smell, if you KWIM.
My new favourite is BBW Snowday! I've gone through so many of them. Wish the 3-wick were still available online. The stores near me are all out of it too.
Twisted Peppermint from Bath & Body Works, hands down. I bought a bunch of them when they had that sale because I don't ever want to run out!
Three new favorites that I am enjoying
Bath and Bodyworks- Island Margarita
Kringle Candle- Tranquil Waters
Jo Malone- Sweet Almond & Macaroon
I prefer woody, mysterious scents:
Voluspa Baltic Amber and Moso Bamboo
Nest Wild Oats & Bourbon and Nest Moroccan Amber
Anything Cire Trudon if I'm splurging
I agree. I love Jo Malone's grapefruit candle. The Jonathan Adler grapefruit candle is also excellent and it's about half the price.
In the spring I love Yankee candle Fresh Cut Roses and Lilac Blossom...soooo spring like! BTW Yankee just started their buy 2 get 2 FREE today...ends on March 9th...use code 2JARS
I have always loved Kitchen Spice by Bath and Body Works, but it is discontinued. I hate that....just like OPI nail polishes . You get your favorite, and then it's gone!!
Oh my gosh, Diptyque everything! My favourite is Baies and Mimosa I also love the limited edition Tokyo and Paris ones.
Just discovered fig by Harry and David. Smells so good! I'd wear it as a perfume if I could.
I love gardenia, but not found a candle that is true enough to the smell?
