Are you even a beauty blogger if you don’t talk about candles? /s
Anyway, I can’t resist. Not because of the oddly pervasive stereotype that I just poked fun at, but because I really freaking like a few so I’m going to share. I can deviate from time-to-time, damn it. Call it beauty-for-the-home, if you will.
I tend to buy a lot of Yankee Candles when they’re on sale. They carry a lot of fragrances that:
- I enjoy
- My husband enjoys (or at least tolerates)
- Do not give either of us headaches
Mother Ocean from the Margaritaville collection is … everything. It’s fresh without being overpowering. I think the ozone component is responsible for my obsession with this fragrance. It’s incredible, and if money were no object I’d clear the shelves at my local Yankee store every time I saw it in stock. This is my absolute favorite candle, period. I will grieve when they end the line.
