Ever since I purchased the Slatkin & Co. Fireside Candle, I’ve been waiting for a cold night to test out this candle. Finally it’s getting colder, so I happily burned this.
In the past, I’ve had my doubts about the Fireside scented candle. Many times I would go into the Bath & Body Works store, pop off the lid, and give it a snifferoo.
I thought it was gross, but lots of people loved it, and they told me that it smells better when burned than it does cold.
Now that I’ve tried it, what do I think? Is it a candle that I’ll be turning to time and time again? Or is this one better left on the shelf?
P.S. It feels like it’s been a long time since my last candle review, doesn’t it? Originally I had ordered the Pumpkin Cupcake candle (along with tons of other candles) during the Labour Day website sale when I found a 30% off your order coupon code that could be stacked on top of the 2 for $20 USD candle deal. The Canadian dollar was strong, so it turned out to actually be a really good deal.
But…then Bath & Body Works supposedly sent a damaged package, so Puralator refused the package at their facility and sent it back. I’m now debating whether or not to replace the order.
After waiting so long and then finding out the bad news, I’m reluctant to replace it. Maybe I’ll just go to the store and hope they have the Pumpkin Cupcake candle in stock now. We’ll see…
Anyway, so if some of you who I promised that a Pumpkin Cupcake candle review was coming soon are wondering what the hold-up is, this is the reason for the massive delay. I do plan on purchasing that candle, though, so a review on it is forthcoming…just not as soon as I would’ve liked.
