I have a confession to make, I probably spend too much money on making the house smell nice, whether it’s fragrant candles or incense. There’s something about the smell they provide that transports me away from the house momentarily or something. I don’t know exactly what it is but it’s something I do for me.
I’ve bought the candles in the small and large glass jars, and I’ve bought the little soy melt cakes you put in a holder use the little tea light candles to melt them. And I burn them pretty regularly
Unfortunately some soy candles don’t live up to their hype. That is their fragrance is either pretty much non-existent or it goes to the other extreme and is too sweet and overpowering. So it can turn into an expensive exercise but as it’s one of the luxuries I allow myself in addition to my op-shop habit, I persist.
I was recently approached by Sydney Fragrance and given one of their candles to try – Heartland (inspired by Outback Australia, with finger lime, flannel flower and eucalyptus).
After having burned it for a few hours over 3 nights or so it passes my test of just enough smell where you want to breath more in and it just smells good.
Even the next morning and the evening after when I’ve come home from work I can still smell it a bit.
So, it passes my test of smelling pretty damn good and having that bit of extra staying power.
Would I buy from them? Yes, I would.
The large candle I received as shown above is $39 and burns for around 80 hours.
