IKEA Tindra Scented Candle
Advantages: Easy to light, smell great, look great, wide range of scents and colours, great price.
Ikea is a store that I absolutely love to visit but unfortunately don't get to as much as I would like due to it being about 40 minutes drive away and petrol being so expensive now! When I do visit I like to stock up on glasses, candles and other little nick nacks like pretty vases and dried flowers. Ikea is great for this and because of the distance I don't find all my friends having the same things in their homes!
In my hall I have recently done a very colourful scheme of orange and yellow on the walls. I have also bought a new radiator cover and sprayed it yellow to make the theme as well as putting a nice wall decal on the wall with a quotation that I absolutely love. In all I have been very pleased with this and felt that the room had been pulled together very well by my own fair hands! I thought I was finished until I visited Ikea with a friend and saw the Tindra candles and picked up some of the orange coloured ones. These were just 95p each and they come in glass containers which can be reused or recycled after use.
There was not too much information on the candles when I was looking at them besides a very small picture and a plastic cover with some small holes that allow me to smell the candles before I purchase them. This is always good as I prefer to go on the smell rather than what any labels say as these can sometimes be incorrect or a little out on describing the scent. The scent of this Tindra candle is a really exotic one; pineapples, mangos, passionfruit and lots of other exotic fruits are combined together to make up the scent of this candle.
This candle is 8cm high and has a burn time of 30 hours. I have burnt my candles for around 25 hours now and would say that this is a correct figure for the burn time with me having a small amount of candle left to burn now.
The wick of this candle was a generous size and so I only had to trim a very small amount to ensure that this was nice and safe to use. This lights in just seconds and I have not had any problems with the wick becoming too short and burning out before the candle is finished. In the past I have had problems with wicks that were too short and left me with 1/4 of a candle that I could not use but these Tindra candles have been fantastic anyway so that's good.
I find that the scent of these candles are fantastic. The exotic fruit scents are quite strong without being overpowering. The candles make my home smell sweet and fresh when people arrive via my hall and I like feeling confident about these candles and the smell of my home. I am able to blow them out with ample time for them to solidify and cool before any small children arrive and yet the smell is still lovely and lingers for quite some time.
I haven't had any problems with these candles burning my radiator cover but then I do use some pretty little place mats anyway just to be on the safe side.
Overall I love these candles. The price is reasonable, the glass is strong and sturdy, the candles look and smell lovely and they make my colour scheme just rounded off in my hallway. I would definitely recommend them and I would have no hesitation trying over scents in the future!
Summary: A fantastic candle from Ikea.
