The Perfect Summer Candle


During the winter time there is nothing I love more than coming out of a hot bath avec lots of Lush products to a cosy room filled with heavenly scented candles, but I must admit I'm not much of summer candle burner. I find that heavy or musky scents are a little off putting in the summer time when the weather is warmer and the nights are brighter so I tend to look for something a little more delicate with a fresh scent to revitalize rather than relax...

This sweet Dolly Rocker Candle from Lily Flame is absolutely perfect for the job in my opinion. Not only is the packaging super sweet, girly and eye catching, but the candle inside is equally pretty decorated with pink and red. If I could describe what this actually smells like I would say that its a very fresh and clean smell a bit like talcum powder or if you like the way you actually want your fresh laundry to smell. The candle was a birthday present so I have very little idea as to what the scent is actually supposed to be but theres definitely something floral in there. It's also a lot stronger than I thought it would be to burn as it completely fills my room with such an amazing smell in just 15 minutes; perfect for when I'm getting down to blogging. 

On the back Lily Flame claim that this little candle can burn for up to 35 hours and I have to say it is lasting well. I've burned it for a couple hours a day every day this week and its barely made a dent in the wax! It looks so pretty sitting on my dressing table too! I have to say I was initially put off by the fact it comes in a tin as I always think it can cheapen the look of candles but the packaging of this one is so pretty that I can over look that minor issue; and for those who would be bothered I checked it out and it actually comes in a glass tumbler version as well. These candles are just such pretty little gifts for someone who loves candles (who doesn't?!) and would make such a cute addition to any bedroom or home. 

What are your favourite scents during the summer time? Do you burn candles all year round?
