Advantages: Everything really
Disadvantages: If you don't like barely there scents you may not appreciate this one
On the run up to Christmas one thing that I bought my home plenty of was candles. I love the warm inviting glow that they give off and I bought one of these Asda Pillar Candles in the vanilla scent to pop on my dining table for decoration. I tend to like plain and unfussy candles where I like to eat and at £3.00 I had the option to buy an unscented pillar candle or the vanilla scented one and after taking a sniff of the vanilla candle opted to buy that one because it had a subtle aroma and not too much of the vanilla scent but I felt that it smelt soft and gently sweet and for a home full of rodents and a stinky bottomed kitten bought it!
It came to me wrapped tight in see through plastic and I was simply told what it was on it basically.
Using this candle is simple of course. It is a huge chunk of cylinder wax which is off white in colour with a long tapered wick to the top of it. When I first light it I can detect the aroma of soft vanilla but it isn't heavily scented which I appreciate. It burns evenly, I have never had to cut the wick and with any kind of candle such as this it stands on a candle plate I already own and I allow it to burn only a couple of hours a time to keep the wick intact for next time I want to use it.
So far I have had over 30 hours burning time from it and still have loads left. Ok the scent isn't that apparent but I never wanted it to be, it gives a gentle fragrance only really when first lit but it gives off a generous glow and looks warming and pleasant in a room.
This for me is a no fuss, simple to use none fancy candle and I really like it. I think its great quality, lasts ages and I have no quibbles with it at all so it gets the thumbs up from me!
Only available from Asda.
