Product Review: Baobab Collection Madagascar Vanilla Candle

I love scented candles. I'm in the middle of having a total overhaul of my room at the moment (I'm going to try and post photos of it for you all once I'm finished) and I think there is at least once scented candle on every single surface. I love jasmine candles, so this tends to be what I gravitate towards every time I buy them for myself. When the guys at luxury lifestyle store Amara offered to send me a Madagascar Vanilla scented candle to review, it really got me wondering why I don't really try to branch out into other scents. I'm actually a big fan of vanilla scented products, so I got very excited for this to arrive. 

I usually go for or get given one wick candles so it is something a bit different for me to have something so big and heavy. I think it is actually a really good size and shape and it is going to take pride of place in the middle of my coffee table. Also, even though there are four wicks not one, think of how much longer it will last! 
After about 10 minutes of letting it burn the candle fills the room with the most deliciously sweet (but not at all sickly) vanilla scent which makes a nice background scent, perfect for when you're not looking for something perfectly exotic. I think I'm going to enjoy burning this one when I am working late evenings. 

What are your favourite candle scents?

    That looks lovely, I've not seen many 4 wick candles about. I am a big fan on vanilla candles, I like sweet scents that aren't at all sickly, so vanilla works well for me! x

  3. I have a slight obsession with candles too. I love a good quality vanilla scent, and Madagascar Vanilla definitely sounds luxurious. Cupcake and sweet scents are my other favorites.
