It’s finally December, how lovely isn’t that? It’s the best season of the year and the season I love the most next after summer. Among most of us Danes, it’s a tradition to count down the days untill Chritmas evening, which takes place on the 24th December according to scandinavians.
We count the days by lightning up a candle, decorated with the numbers from 1 to 24. You will lit up the candle everyday, and let the number of the day vanish, until the 24. Christmas evening.
I myself use to love this tradition, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to get my own christmas calender candle, which I found quite sad in the end. However I found something else, to cheer me up. Those are my new Winter Apple candles.
Winter Apple, is a 3x3x2 package of scented candles. The scent contains of Apple and Cinnamon, a true that Christmas scent. Once I sniffed it still unpacked in the store I fell in love right away, because the cent and balance between both cinnamon and apple was absolutely stunning. I almost ate it. Once I unpacked the candles to lit a few of them up, the smell became even stronger. To be honest this was my first time to try scented candles.
Once I lit up the candles, I began to fear if the scent of cinnemon and apple would turn out different and less lovely, from when you just smell them. However I quickly discovered that the smell was pretty much the same. I have had the candles lit up for almost an hour now, and the cinnemon and apples are all around me. Just as lovely as if they still ad been unpacked.
These lovelies are definitely best purchase I have made in a while. Even though I found the prize a little too expenssive, I regret nothing. The scent is really all over the room.
Have a lovely 2:e December.
