Earlier this month, I was sat at home on my weekend pretty much doing nothing...food shopping, a bit of cleaning, watching The X Factor, lazing in my PJ's and drinking copious amounts of tea. Meanwhile, my Dad was living it up with his friends in Las Vegas. Something a little wrong with those situations, isn't there? It should have been the other way around!
But you know...silver linings and all that. I wasn't going to be able to afford to go to Vegas, or America at any point in the future, so I made a very concise shopping list (two things!) of what I would like my Dad to bring back! My Dad is very much a manly man, and I couldn't see him browsing the aisles of Sephora or Wal-Mart so I could get some American Beauty bits - instead, I simply asked for a nice candle from Bath & Body Works, and a Las Vegas mug.
The candle he chose was Peach Cilantro Twist and I am so pleased with it! It's the second candle I have had from them - my first being Leaves! It smells absolutely amazing; really fresh, fruity and the scent really fills the room and the whole house if I leave the door open. It also lightly scents the room if I leave the cap off the candle. It's just so nice, and even Liam enjoys it when I burn it. Before we moved in together, he was demanding that no candles were bought as they "just sit there and gather dust," but I think he is a candle convert!
The candle is a clean burner, but I do think that it's disappearing rather quickly! I'm trying to use this candle sparingly - it really is so nice, and it's such a shame we can't get Bath & Bath Works easily in the UK! My Dad said he loved the store, and even stocked up on some body lotions (?!) and aftershave for himself!
Have you tried anything from Bath & Body Works? What's your favourite candle?
