Smells Exactly Like it Reads

Tonia gave me my birthday and Christmas presents this past weekend. One of the gifts was this candle.

I enjoy candles. I have to be careful, with my allergies, that I don't let the candle burn too long or I start coughing.

And when you are owned by cats, you need to watch where you place candles about your house. My girls don't seem to be interested in them. I let them sniff the candle before lighting. Once they have taken a whiff, they aren't interested. Hence, I can light a candle and know they won't go near it.

This candle is very interesting. Upon opening, it does smell like birthday cake, the sugary buttercream smell of a bakery made cake. There were sprinkles in the top. These are embedded in the wax. I lighted the candle and let it go for a couple hours. It was not an overpowering scent. In fact, I really didn't notice the scent unless I was right next to the candle. It could be a bit stronger so there was a light fragrance in the room, but I'll take this. The strong scents tend to be the ones that start me coughing.

I don't know where she got this, possibly Kohl's department store as she purchased other items for me there. I'm thinking tonight I need to find my fir-scented candles and get some holiday cheer going in the house.
