So the other day I decided to step outside of my candle box (ha! Am I the only person who remembers the band candlebox? Probably) and try something other than Yankee. I spent about 30 minutes sniffing every candle at Marshall's before I decided on a Lily of the Valley Scentsational candle on sale for $6.99. I was pretty excited by this discovery, since lily of the valley is another favorite of mine and is not particularly common. Scentsational candles are also 100% soy, another new thing for me, guess I won't be inhaling any carcinogens (or whatever they're claiming these days) in the immediate future.
The candle came in a sheer mesh bag that smells lovely and which I'll probably use to store jewelry and small items when traveling. On the whole I'm very pleased with this double wick candle - it's been burning cleanly and evenly for the whole afternoon, and the scent is strong enough to fill our entire apartment - which is the biggest plus for me. I also think the scent is very true to the name, it truly does give a clear, strong lily of the valley scent, and I couldn't be more pleased.
I'm was not familiar with the brand until now but I'm excited to see that they also have a lilac scent - unfortunately, I haven't seen this brand at any other stores aside from Marshall's, and the selection there was quite limited, since there seems to be a fairly broad scent catalog available. Hopefully I'll come across more in the future.
