I light a candle and pass it on to you - .... continue the relay!

You heard me =P
Continue the relay of candles with me!
Light a candle -> sip a hot chocolate -> read a book -> keep cosy!

Those of you who have been following my blog would know just how much J'adOre les scents!



~Perfumes aside...
.....I absolutely like candles & oil burners alike!~


I'll show you some of my (favourite and/or reviewed) candles and candle holders in this post (I will blog about oil burners at a later time ^.^)


--------------

I got Glade's Spiced Apple from Tesco's. It was half price at the time so I thought I should give it a try. I have to say: close up, it smells delicious, but far away, this fails to deliver enough fragrance. I'd say at least 2 of these are needed to scent a room up well enough - which is a shame because the spiced apples smell so yumm...!





--------------

I admire this Hand held Lantern for its portability, design and shape. The design is so ethnic & mysterious in a way. It reminds me of the good olden days, which adds a touch of warmth to the room...






--------------

Marks & Spencer's Nectarine and Orange candles totally disappointed me. I expected a bit better from this. I just can't seem to smell it =( !


These Ikea Tindra candles are my favourite!
Not only are they reasonably priced (I think they are £3.50 for 36 tealights at Ikea!), but they also smell soo good! One of these manage to scent an entire small room.
It carries the scent very well for around 3-4 hours.
My favourite scent has to be the white vanilla candles...simply calming, relaxing & keeps my head clear!

One thing I have yet to try is a diffuser, although I don't think it'll beat scented candles or oil burners because they don't have the same effect.

Watching a candle light up and see that energy dissipate relieves stress and reminds me of how fast time passes us by...

N.B. I do not actually believe in fortune cookies or any sorts of fortune telling!


On a different note, I had a fortune cookie today for the fun of it...

Let's see what it says, shall we? =P





Right.... o.O... interesting...

Lol, the fortune cookie wasn't even a fortune! It was a quote. XD
And I love the spiced apple candle scent. The Ikea candles are awesome too, and I love how they're mini-sized, cute, and colorful. My favorite candle holders were The Stargazer and the Golden Cube.
Unfortunately, I have no hot chocolate. :P

Haha....! you're right... it's a quote *googles* apparently by Albert Einstein....O_O.. =S

yeaa... the ikea candles are just so efficient, mini and reasonably priced and last for hours, which explains why there are people who go to ikea just for the tealights (me >.> )...
