I must admit I love candles but I usually only buy Yankee Candles because they have very rarely let me down. When I go to Primark I am always tempted to get some of their candles but I was always a bit dubious of actually buying one because I love having my living room feeling warm and having a nice strong fragrance and I always had that thought in the back in my head that it wouldn't be as good, I know that sounds daft but for me an evening in with a nice smelling candle relax me so much. I went back to primark a few weeks ago and thought to myself why not just give it a go? you never bloody know you might just like them and you can try more brands rather then the same old same old.
Primark has a fair few candles to choose from and the prices start off at about £1 and I didn't see anything more then £5, correct me if I'm wrong on this. I got this jar candle for £3 and its called 'Road to Marrakesh' and its in a turquoise blue jar with a gorgeous gold pattern on it. I already have plans to reuse this jar once the candle has finished because it looks gorgeous.
At the moment this candle is on my mantle piece and on the opposite side of it I have my simply sweet pea candle which is from the yankee candle home range. I have alternated on which I have used over the past few weeks because I like different scents everyday. This candle has a screw lid which reminds me of a candy jar, the wick is quite thick and the candle is white and has a sweet yet spicy scent when unlit
I lit this candle once my children are asleep and I start blogging which is usually about 8.30, I did this every other day and it lit very easily. While blogging it was very nice to see this jar sitting on my mantle piece as it was glowing beautifully and after about 30 minutes I could really smell the candle and I can't tell you the exact fragrance but it was a little sweet with a bit of spice scent to me which was lovely and it surprised me how nice it smelled because it was on the same levels as my simply sweet pea candle which is from the home range made by Yankee Candle from ASDA.
- Lots of different fragrances
- They have nice designs
- Pleasant scents
- You can reuse the jars
- Not as strong as the premium yankee candle but just as good as the home range of yankee candles.
I really wish I bought these candles sooner because they have so many designs and fragrances to choose from! They may not be as good as the premium yankee candles but they are still flipping brilliant all the same. I have used this candle about 5 times now and its just past the top part of the label which is great. I can't wait to try more of the candles especially as the jars look so nice too to make something else out of too.
Have you ever tried Primark Candles before? if so what is your favourite?
