Jelly Belly Candle | Crushed Pineapple

I have recently developed a huge love for scented candles. As I've mentioned on my blog before, I absolutely adore my room so burning scented candles and incense in there is something I really enjoy doing. However, I am quite picky when it comes to my scents in that I tend to dislike anything too overpowering.
I know; that probably sounds weird as I've just said I like to burn incense, but when I do I tend to leave the window open to diffuse the smell a bit, 'cause I'm odd like that. So I must admit I do prefer a good ol' scented candle to incense.
Anyhow, this Jelly Belly candle in Crushed Pineapple was actually a gift from my auntie a long while back which I have only just gotten round to using. I actually think the small, slightly retro-looking tin container is really cute and a nice change, although if you do fancy sticking to the popular glass jar candles Jelly Belly sell these too!

The unlit candle itself actually has a really strong, sweet scent, which although is genuinely a lovely smell it is ever so slightly sickly, so I was kind of worried at first how strong the scent would be.
It definitely reminds me of a particular sweet I used to eat when I was a wee nipper but I can't quite put my finger on which one, which is ever so slightly irritating...
Regardless, once lit the candle is the perfect fruity scent. It is such a subtle smell that the sweetness in the tin doesn't actually matter, however I would say it is definitely more of a summery scent, and the smell really doesn't seem to hang around for long unfortunately.

Overall though, it's a lovely little candle if you fancy a bit of a change from your usual floral scents!

Jelly Belly tin candles can be purchased here from Debenhams, where they are currently reduced from £5 to £4 each, available in a variety of scents from Liquorice to Blueberry!

What candle are you currently burning?

  1. I loved the smell of these in Tescos (I think that was the shop I was in?!), they had a great vatiety and the smaller sizes are great for when you like to change up what you are burning!
