I love lights...if you follow us on Instagram, you'd know that by now. I also love candles...well kind of connected to the whole "lights" thing and it brings in such a cozy warm feeling to the room doesn't it?
Unfortunately in India, we don't have too many options as far as scented candles are concerned. Most of them smell sickly sweet and way too artificial. I always pick them up and stores, sniff them and end up with a weird expression on my face. When I came across this brand called The Fragrance People, I gave in to temptation and tried their Citronella Natural Essentioal Oil Candle.
The company uses natural essential oils as their fragrances, so I knew they would not smell weirdly artificial. Citronella is a great natural mosquito repellent with a rich and crisp lemony aroma.
The candle came in a cute little ribbed glass jar which fits aptly on my table. I burn in for around 15-20 minutes every other night and the room fills with a beautiful lemony aroma which actually works quite nice in the hot weather Bangalore is facing at the moment. And yes it does repell (...sometimes kills) insects...bonus!! If you were to burn it everyday for around half hour, it should last you a month easily, and you can totally reuse the jar for some cute diy later!
Price : 249 INR
Do check The Fragrance People out, if you like me are a lover of candles. I am stockingup some more in other fragrances soon :)
