My Candle Collection

I love scented candles. Especially in the autumn and winter time, when it gets really dark really early, On many evenings you could find me sitting on our sofa with all the lights switched off and our flat filled with candles. They make any evening feel cosy and walking into a room with a scented candle burning is absolutely sensational! 






I buy my scented candles mostly from Ikea. They do some really great ones for a fairly cheap price. If I could, I'd be a total sucker for Yankee Candles and the Bath & Bodyworks candles, but unfortunately we don't get those treasures in Finland. But as I said, Ikea does have a nice selection to choose from. My favourite ones are called Sinnlig. They make them in different sizes, but my ones last for 25 hours and have various scents and colours. My favourite one is the vanilla scent, yummy! I also recently bought a three-pack of slightly smaller candles called Br├Ącka and they smell of fudge! I know of nothing better!



I feel like people divide into two categories: others like the spicy scents and others the sweet scents. I'm definitely in the latter group. There must be a true connection between my sense of smell and taste! Sweetness is my weakness I'm afraid, and it has nothing to do with my personality.




I do have a couple of other candles too. One is from H&M Home. I bought the candle merely because it looked pretty in its rosegold pot. It's called Birchwood, and I'm afraid I quite dislike the scent. But if you're into a sort of masculine scent, then I would recommend this one! Most of my tealights are also from Ikea, because they're like crazy cheap. The non-scented ones are about 3 euros per 100 candles! But I bought my favourite tealights from Topshop years ago and they smell of Jelly Beans! I only have one of each scent left and I don't want to burn them ever, I just want to sniff them every once in a while :D

Where do you go candle shopping?

  9. I love candles, and the ones in your top picture are soo cute! Since I pretty much only burn candles in autumn/winter times, I usually tend to go for spicy scents, but honestly as long as it smells good I like it haha. I get mine from Bath & Bodyworks, so it stinks that you don't get those in Finland. I've never gotten candles from Ikea though, but now that you've mentioned the tealights, I'll definitely have to check them out! Lovely post :) xx

  11. What a fab collection! I love candles, especially this time of year - they can be so comforting on cold, autumn evenings! :) x 3 euros for 100 candles seems like an awesome deal, I usually get mine at the Yankee Candle - they have some amazing scents. :)

    1. Cheers girl :) Candles are the best! I've always loved how the Yankee Candle make rather interesting scents whereas the Ikea ones(although amazing) are a little dull compared. Thanks for the lovely comment <3 xx
