Who doesn't love a good candle and a nice aroma around the home? I'm normally a Diptyque kind of gal, but in honesty I just love candles and I can't explain why
Partylite recently sent me some items that are newly launched and now my whole room is full of glorious scents
Now it is only September I know, but everybody is already thinking about Christmas surely?! Partylite do a range of candles called "Just Desserts" and 2 new additions to this range are some Christmassy delights decorated in jars with nutcrackers on
Within this set of 2 candles is "Sugarplum Fairies" and "Nutcracker Sweet". One of them is a real spicy number and reminds me of oranges with cloves in and the sweet spice of mulled wine, a real cosy Christmas. The other is sweet and uplifting and makes me think of all things warm and fuzzy and sweet about Christmas. I'll definitely be saving these candles for that big day and Christmas dinner! My mum has already pinched the spicy purple candle from me to save for Christmas so I guess I have no say in that matter
I was also sent this adorable heart shaped tealight holder that you can see in the image below and at the very top of this post. The tealight inside of it is one of my own I had lying around
I love tealight holders. I especially love this one as it has this mottled splattered effect on and silver which makes the holder kind of transparent and opaque in different places and creates a beautiful atmosphere when the room is dark and the tealight is lit. I also think the heart shape is really cuteLast but not least is a set of 3 candles. Their "Forbidden Fantasy" range. They do a range of 3 white candles and 3 black candles within this title and I was sent the 3 white candles to signify romance and love. Inside are candles titled 'Blush', 'Flirt', and 'Kiss'
Blush is all about the flush on your cheeks and is composed of white grapefruit, violet, musk and rosewood
Flirt is all about the playfulness and innocence and is composed of white florals with rich fruits and musk
Kiss is all about the expectation of that first kiss and is composed of dewy fresh notes, light florals with amber and sandalwood
I really like all of the Forbidden Fantasy candles within the set as I love anything that is sweet and floral in scent. They aren't too sickly or overpowering like some florals and some brands of candles can be. I just wish the jar they came in was a bit more interesting! It is just a plain jar and a plain white candle. I would have loved to see some kind of "Forbidden Fantasy" motif on the jar itself
