Long time no Yankee!
Finally, I have some new scents to tell you about and these are all from the Pure Essence collection for Spring. I was sent four votive candles in a pretty box which unfortunately got a little smashed during transport, so I didn't include it in the photo, but you can see it here.
Votive candles come without a glass and need to be placed in a candle holder. Personally, I prefer bigger jars or tea lights, but these are a great option if you want to try out some new scents! Let's see what we have. Votives burn for about 15 hours.
Pink GrapefruitI'm not certain if this is a part of the Pure Essence Collection, but it was included in the set. It's quite citrus-y and has that signature slightly tart, slightly bitter tang that I always associate with grapefruit. It's a very fresh scent, quite refreshing as well. Big like for this one, and I think it would work well in late spring when it's starting to get warmer! Check it out.
Aloe WaterThis one is just beautiful! So fresh, soothing, rich but soft ... I love it. This one is great for lighting in your bathroom, because it's so relaxing - I can already envision a bubble bath with it burning in the background. It smells a little like Clean Cotton with something fresh and ripe added to the mix. Buy here.
CassisI thought I wouldn't like this one, fearing that it would be artificial. However, it's a gorgeous rich fruity scent which still manages to be fresh and reminiscent of spring. It's my least favourite out of the four, but I still like it a lot. I think it would smell nice on a very light, a bit chilly spring day, because it would balance the richness of the candle nicely. Available here.
Shea ButterMy absoltue favourite! It smells like Clean Cotton and Vanilla Cupcake combined and I just love it. Rich, soft, creamy & indulgent ... Just the way I like it. I want to wear a perfume exactly like this, and it reminds me a bit of DKNY Pure (an amazing fragrance). Perfect for staying in and lounging in your bed. Get it here.
This collection is so beautiful ... There's not one scent I don't like, and I love most of them! Just gorgeous and really embodies spring perfectly. I can't wait for it to get warmer outside (mind you, my wallpaper was Let it Snow for 2 months ...)
