My love for candles has progressed through the years. I think my mom turned me on to loving candles as much as I do. I remember she would burn a beautiful candle in a lantern (way back before lanterns were the "in" thing) year round. It gave off the most light but beautiful scent. To this day, when I smell that particular candle it always brings back memories.
The fragrance was Red Currant by Votivo and to this day it is hands down my favorite candle and scent. Votivo is quite pricey, but back in my hometown we have a store that sells all the mishap candles for quite cheap. By mishap, I mean that the wick isn't dead centered, the jar may be missing the wax decal, it may not be in the box etc... But who cares when you are picking up a $25 candle for $2!!
The list of my favorite candles coincides with the pictures above:
- Votiv0 Vanilla Bergamot Blossom
- Votivo Red Currant
- Anthropologie's Capri Blue Volcano Candle
- Lume Luxe brand...I love them all, but my favorit is the Wild Herb Cassis. These can be found at Target as well.
Do you have a candle that you love? I am always looking for new brands and scents!!
