As I write this I have this gorgeous candle sitting on the side table next to me, pretty cute set up isn’t it?
I bought this candle yesterday while Christmas shopping at Peter Alexander. I can never resist that store, they always have a Glasshouse candle burning and the scent just draws you in. After picking up all the bits and bobs I needed (including a super cute NYC Taxi pyjama set and Mickey mouse undies for my sister), and a couple of things for myself, I spotted the range of Glasshouse Christmas candles at the counter while getting ready to pay. I just had to have a little sniff of the range! There are 3 scents – Xmas Pudding, Night Before Christmas, and White Christmas. I’m pretty sure they’re exclusive to Peter Alexander judging by the packaging.
All scents are very sweet and Christmassy, but Xmas Pudding was my favourite because it smells like maple syrup with a hint of nutmeg. It really makes you feel like Christmas is around the corner.
Here’s what it looks like when you open the box, it’s all very Christmas-themed and cute, with that nice little WARNING label peeking out at you.
As you can see, there’s a few guidelines you should follow, for both safety and optimal usage.
I’m a big fan of this candle, the scent is beautiful and sweet, although it is a bit exxy for a candle, as all Glasshouse candles are. Each candle in the range will cost you $44.95 a pop, but they are very high quality (handmade in Australia) and last a very long time.
They’re only available until Christmas, so make sure you get in quick if you want one!
The final score: 5/5 candy canes.
