To me autumn and winter is the perfect time to light a candle in the evening after a long days work whilst you’re relaxing or even doing some work. If they’re scented, it’s even better!
I’ve made posts before on my blog about my Yankee Candles (you can read those here, here and here) and whilst I own various other candles too (but nor nearly as many as Yankee Candles) I still crave more and Lily Flame are candle company I’ve been lusting after for quite some time.
Charlotte’s over at makeupbycandlelight.blogspot.co.uk recently wrote a post about her Lily Flame candles and it reminded me how much I’d been craving a couple of their gorgeous scents for quite a while now!
I discovered Lily Flame in The Oasis Market in Birmingham, they had some festive scents in there at and after Christmas and I was going to buy a couple of tins but I didn’t really have much money so I left it.
Then this spring whilst looking around Waitrose I saw some of Lily Flame candles for sale and fell in love with Fairy Dust. I was incredibly foolish and didn’t pick it up and alas when I went in during the summer, it was gone and I haven’t seen it in there since.
However thanks to the internet, I will still be able to pick it up, maybe even off of eBay for a bargain price but upon looking on the Lily Flame website, I found they have quite a few scents that I have searching for in a scented candle for quite some time now.
So I thought I would share with you my wish list of Lily Flame candles!
FYI these are in the order that I found them on the website. 🙂
Coffee Galore – I love coffee, the smell, the taste, everything and being a barista just makes it sound so funny as at times I rather enjoy making people drinks with coffee involved too. I’m that person at Christmas who eats all the coffee chocolates out of the selection boxes because I’m the only one who likes them. I can only imagine this candle to smell creamy and delicious and one to burn whilst working and I’m pretty sure it would smell gorgeous in the morning or early afternoon too! I’d want to smell this before purchasing but either way, yum!
Fairy Dust – I can’t even describe the smell of this candle to you! It’s just so unique and different and definitely reminds me of something I would have liked the smell of as a child. This is something I would burn at any time of day, but probably more so when I’m feeling a little blue and need a pick me up. This is by far number one on my wish list as it’s one of the first candles EVER that I have fallen in love with and have craved to smell again. I can see me buying myself one of these in the New Year.
Splash – This candle sounds very fresh and more of a scent you would burn during the summer time. It sounds like a manly scent, which I like! I love water and I really miss going on holiday to enjoy jumping into the cool swimming pool or even the ocean to venture under the water at whatever is down there. I’d light this whilst doing some work or playing some games on my PS3 as it’s a rather relaxing scent. Plus I really need a holiday and with no money I guess my memories and the scent of this candle will have to do.
Vanilla & Honey – Oh my could this candle sound anymore amazing!? I know it isn’t exactly a Christmassy scent but to me this would be perfect for me for Christmas. It’s warming and yummy smelling and sounds like ice cream! I’d light this quite a lot I reckon which in itself isn’t a good thing but if it stopped me from eating ice cream and anything like that, then surely it’s not such a bad thing?! Now reading about it, it’s making me rather hungry for some ice cream… I may have to buy myself some tonight, naughty Nat. 😛
Smile! – This is definitely a summer scent but I wouldn’t care! I love food smells and strawberry, banana, apple and blueberry are definitely up there, with raspberry not far behind them! This would be burnt during summer evenings no matter what I was doing or what mood I was in. It sounds delicious and the name of this candle just reminds me of Lily Allen’s first single. I really do wish Lily Flame would do a blueberry or banana candle as I can never seem to find either of those flavours, which sucks.
Apple – As I just mentioned just on the Smile! candle, I love apple scents and this one I can imagine smelling fresh, crisp and fresh! I’ve only ever owned one apple scented candle and it smelt amazing! It was only a £1 from my local pound shop and when I went to buy another, they’d all gone and said they didn’t plan to get anymore. I was gutted, absolutely gutted! However seeing as Lily Flame offer their Apple candle, I may have found a replacement. I love the smell of apple throughout the year, but mostly during the spring.
Lily Flame’s candles come in tins (as you can see) and cost £8.50 each, although I have found them cheaper on places such as eBay and in a couple of shops. Their burn times lasts for 35 hours which in hindsight doesn’t seem all that long for nearly £10.00 worth of candle but as I don’t burn candles all that often and when I do not for that long, I find it’s well worth the money.
Have you ever heard of Lily Flame candles? If so which scents tickle your fancy?
