I have a confession to make: I’m a bit of a candle snob. With homeware and my wardrobe, I’m all about sticking to budgets and tracking down bargains. I certainly don’t subscribe to the idea that the more expensive something is, the better it will be. Of course, this is sometimes the case, but I’ve been let down by seemingly “premium” purchases in the past.
As for candles? They’re the one buy I allow myself to splurge on. I track this back to years spent working in a boutique surrounded by luxury candles. We’d burn them by our till, and I soon found myself hooked on the scent pay-off—not to mention the burn time, which lapped that of my frugal candles. Soon, I was spending my disposable income on high-end candles, something I’ve continued to do into adulthood. At least, I did until I discovered the high-street candle range which gives the luxury wicks a run for their money.
