Primark Deluxe Candles #2

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and are having a fabulous weekend so far. I am so glad it's finally the weekend, even though i won't have much of one. I have a load of university revision to do for my last exam i have next week. On the bright side, being it's my final exam and my dissertation is handed in means i would have finished university, yay! 

Being in my final year at university means i have a load more added stress piled on amongst everything else. There is nothing i love more than after a stressful week or whilst revising than to light a few candles, de-stress, throw in a bit of revision with a handful of my favourite beauty products. I have rather a large candle collection with brands such a Yankee Candles, Bath and Body Works, Lily-Flame, Neom Organics, Primark and so on. A few months ago i wrote a post about some of Primark's Deluxe Candles and i had such a great response to it. Last week my Mum was browsing through Primark whilst i was in an exam and she picked me up a new scent which we had never seen before. We literally have these candles dotted around the house now so one more to add to the collection wouldn't hurt haha. I believe now i only have the Coconut and Vanilla scent to try…unless Primark have brought out a new summer collection. Like i mentioned in my previous post, i have used endless amounts of candles in the past and they are a favourite of mine as they are super affordable, smell great and look pretty…what more could you ask for?!

Primark Deluxe Candles | £2

As you can see from the pictures above, the new scent i would like to introduce you to is Fresh Citrus and Ginger. Just like all of the other scent i love how the scent is reflecting in the colour of the packaging. As i use these candles religiously i had a slight inkling above what to expect with this new scent. Once lit it literally filled the room with a fresh summery aroma which instantly reminded me of summer and relaxing in the garden with the family.

Fresh Citrus and Ginger

Just like the name it is a true citrus scent with hints of warming ginger. It is a perfect scent for the summer time that might even keep those pesky bugs away with the citrus notes.

There is not a precise size on the jar but you can tell they are pretty large. Comparison wise they come in bigger than the mini Yankee Candle jars you can get so you are getting a good amount of product and great value for money. The packaging is very simplistic and pretty to look at with shabby chic labels on the front. I have managed to save some of the jars to depot and do a little DIY with for storage in my new beauty closet when the building and extension business is finished at the Meola household. I think with a pretty ribbon, some diamonds and sparkly pieces they would make gorgeous makeup and brush holders! What do you think?

They claim to have a 30 hour burning time which i think is pretty spot on. In my previous post i mentioned how i burnt my White Jasmin and Lily candle pretty much over an entire weekend and there was still plenty of product left in the bottom of the jar so give or take the burning time is pretty incredible for a £2 candle. What i really like is how the flame burns the entire product from the sides as it gradually goes down the jar, so you are not left with a big whole in the middle with wasted product. A little disclaimer thought, i noticed this varies from candle to candle so some will burn differently. For £2 i think this is a great little product and i will definitely be repurchasing more in the future.

I think it's safe to say i have a little obsession with these candles. I think i need to get my hands on the last Coconut and Vanilla scent and give it a try. I hope you all enjoyed this post, i would love to know your thoughts on the candles. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment…they really make my day!
