Whether it's because I'm twenty-four going on eighty four or the long chilly winter nights, I had found myself loosing a few minutes or so here and there looking at various oil burners and different scents of wax tarts. There's something inherently magical about the warm, flickering glow of a candle and anything that gives me that extra cosy feeling as I'm tucked up under my favourite knitted blanket with a good book is a good thing in my eyes.
Recently I've been going through candles like there's no tomorrow but every time I finish one I can't seem to part with the empty jar and I've amassed quite a collection, it's beginning to border on just being silly now but who knows when I'll need that particular sized glass jar?! The answer is never but even though I know that, it doesn't seem to help! My desire to try something new has led me to the world of wax tarts and tart warmers and I think... think I like them more than candles.
the scented candle shop but I'm so happy that whoever it was, did write that post because amongst its pages I spotted Owliver, a sweet little white oil burner who captured my heart and I simply had to give him a home on the top of my bookcase. (Edited-to-add: the original poster was the beautiful Bee!)
I bought three wax tarts, black cherry, black coconut and fireside treats. Cherry is one of my favourite scents ever and black cherry is really intense, not something I would burn all the time but perfect for when I'm in a cherry kind of mood. Coconut is another one of my favourite scents and black coconut is especially nice because it's not just straight up coconut, there's a little something extra in there. Fireside treats is one I had to try because I've seen so many of my favourite ladies mention it in posts and I can see why! It's not too sickly sweet and smells extra good combined with black coconut.
My mum loved my little owl so much she asked me to buy her one too. She asked for pink sands, fruit fusion and sicilian lemon. I must also say that we're both really impressed with the delivery time, both of our orders arrived the next day so I'm sure these won't be our last orders from there!
Do you have any scent recommendations?
Or the best place to buy wax tarts from?
I think I can sense a little bit of an addiction coming on...
