Today I woke up into the most beautiful fairytale. The whole street was covered in snow and I finally got what I wished for! Christmas didn’t feel festive at all due to lack of snow and warm temperatures, but NYE will feel a bit more wintery if the snow will stick around till then.
I’m working from home and my desk is right next to a big window so I got to enjoy the snowy view all day long. I brought out my favorite new purchases – the incredible candles from Notino! I’m addicted to making me and my home smell amazing. I bought two big candles with more winter appropriate smells so I could create a wonderful atmosphere.
Bath & Body Works is a well known brand when it comes to candles. Just the other week I saw Jaclyn Hill raving about these candles on her instagram story and I knew I had to try some.
The first candle that caught my eye while scrolling through Notino’s website was this one, the Bath & Body Works Spiced Gingerbread. I was just baking some gingerbread cookies that day and I loved how good my home smelt! That’s why I decided I need a candle with that scent (and also, to stop baking so many cookies!).
This has to be hands down the most homey smelling candle! It’s smells just like fresh cookies straight out of the oven and I think it’s perfect for this time of the year. Nothing says Christmas more than all the baking and cozy smells.
Fun fact – Kringle Candle was founded by the son of the founder of Yankee Candle. No wonder these candles smell amazing! I love the incredible design of their packaging and even though it has some similarities to Yankee Candle, their smells are so unique and different.
I wanted a more romantic, deep, sexy smelling candle for the dark winter nights so this collection caught my eye. They have a few different candles with “sassy” names such as Fierce & Fabulous, Sorry not sorry, On fleek etc. I went for the Boujee V Sexy scent – a wonderful mix of coconut milk, strawberry, lavender, vanilla, tonka beans and sugar cane. It’s such an amazing, deep, romantic smell.
It’s one of those smells that would be perfect for a date night when you want that special, flirty atmosphere. It honestly reminds me of Paris for some weird reason, it’s just so romantic!
