Yep, that’s right, this whole blog post is dedicated to a candle. I know, who does that? But I feel like, as you’re going to see this candle on my Instagram probably about once a week forevermore, I’d give it a little credit here too.
This is the Sixth Scent candle in Strawberry Shortcake and – just look at it. It looks like a strawberry milkshake, or a strawberry ice cream sundae, or…just all of those good things in the world. Not only is it beautiful, it also smells amazing – exactly like strawberry shortcake – and the scent payoff is perfect; enough that you can smell it in the room, but not one of those sickly Yankee candles that kind of give you a headache after a while. And once again, can we look at it? This is how it comes packaged - err, how beautiful?
I found them through an Instagram account that I now, annoyingly, can’t recall, and they’re one of those little companies who deserve so many more followers than they have. You can get these particular candles in several other colours and flavours – Blueberry Muffin and Chocolate Cupcake are calling out to me – as well as a couple of other clever little variations, like ‘Café Latte,’ which comes in a glass cup, and ‘Starbucks Strawberry & Cream Frap,’ which has a little pink straw! And best of all? They’re £6. SIX. POUNDS. Plus delivery, but do you know how cheap that is for a beautiful candle like this – when I’d quite happily drop £40 for a Diptyque one half the size (maybe that’s my issue, but hey ho!)
