Asda Pillar Candle
Advantages: Price, slow burn time, bright flame, option of sizes and frgranced or non-fragranced
I confess I do have some sort of addiction to candles. It's been going on for ages. They don't have to be scented or look any particular way and I use tea lights, wax tarts, tall and small rounded and square shaped. I just love the atmosphere they can create on an evening. My husband isn't so keen and constantly tries to convince me that I'm harming my health by breathing in soot particles. I've yet to be totally convinced, by the way.
We live near to an Asda George. They sell a lot of household items in there, obviously and they do make a fantastic range of candles - all their own range. There is a whole aisle dedicated to just candles and candle holders and I can literally spend ages and ages just standing in this aisle picking up various candles, putting them back down again and looking at others. Their size range and fragrance range is second to none and they are very well priced so I often spoil myself by buying a few and really stocking up whenever I go in there.
Lately I've stocked up on their own brand of pillar candles. These come in different colours but I usually end up buying the cream coloured ones as they go well with any décor, as they are a fairly neutral colour. They do these in three various sizes and I always go for the mid-range size as I place here of these on my square shaped mirrored glass holder on the hearth in front of my unlit fire.
These candles cost £3 each only and they also have the option of the scented variety. Personally, I prefer the unscented ones as it means I can burn more without my husband complaining about the smell. These medium sized pillar candles look great when placed together in a group or individually, on their own.
They all have nice long white tapers which light first time, every time. They give off a great large flame (well, not massive, but brighter than some of the ones I've used from Tescos) and they burn for hours on end. I usually light my candles every night, especially during the darker winter months, and I think these must burn for approximately 10 hours per candle, which is pretty impressive really if you think about it, considering they are only £3 each.
The other reason I like these candles so much is because they just don't drip like some of the other ones I've had from the supermarket's own range. They burn evenly and slowly and in my opinion, they don't emit any soot particles, though my husband would argue that they do.
Personally, I love them. They are great value for money and last for ages and look perfect in my living room in front of my fire.
Summary: really recommend them
