I love candles and I just got a new one from Bath and Body Works that is simply divine. It is the Tis The Season candle from the Holiday 2014 collection and I actually got it on sale.
The candle is one of the larger 3 wick candles and it normally sells for $22.50. Now as much as I love candles I think that is a bit much to pay for one....regardless of how long it burns. I got it on sale for $11.25, which is still a bit on the high side but totally worth it for both the scent and the length of the burn.
The candle itself comes in a silver lined jar and is the 14.50 oz size. The scent is listed as Tis the Season and features:
-bright red apples
-deep green pine notes
The candle is red and when it burns down only the silver lined, clear jar is left. What I love about 3-wick candles is that they have a tendency to burn down evenly and not leave residue on the sides of the jar.
I have been burning this candle about 3 hours straight every day and so far it has not disappointed. It claims to have a burn time of 25-45 hours..so at a rate of 3 hours per day it should last me between 8 and 15 days.
I really love this candle even though I did not think I LOVED it at first but only liked it. After I burned it a few minutes I found the scent to fill the room but not overpower it. There is no one scent that really takes over the others, but they all blend into one very pleasing Christmassy scent.
The other thing I love about the candle is that the three wicks make a very even burn and the candle leaves no traces on the jar. Once this candle has burned down all the way I plan on using the jar as a decorative piece in my bathroom. It will be placed on the vanity to hold miscellaneous items.
In fact I love the jar so much that I plan on visiting the store once again to get another candle..hopefully in a different scent. I will then have two beautiful jars that can be used to hold odds and ends on the vanity area.
If I cannot get another scent that I love as much as this one I will end up getting another of Tis the Season because the scent is very pretty and I can smell it all day long without getting tired!
As always you can get this scent in the store and it is on sale right now...however if you wish to get it from Amazon (at almost the regular price) then you can use the image below:
and I will get a referral from your purchase.
