I am never usually a 'candle' loving sort of person (is anyone really or have I made this up?) and so decided I'd pick one up to fragrance my university room and hopefully create a stress free environment. This lovely little set came wrapped up like a little gift, with gold ribbon and an instructions booklet, I'm only sorry I didn't take a picture before I ripped it open. If like me, you're a complete 'tea light set' novice, it may help you to know that while the candle burns away in the alcove, a fragrant oil mixed with water (which you do yourself in this case) is sat in the top. The candle heats it up causing it to evaporate (ooh science) which fragrances the room it's in.
I have to admit, for a tiny tea light set such as this one, I really wasn't expecting it to work at all. You can imagine my surprise when I returned to my room five minutes later to it smelling of Vanilla, after just a few drops of the fragrant oil. You can safetly assume that I am more than pleased with this product and it looks so gorgeous in it's new home atop my fireplace. The best part is you can replace the oils and candle with other fragrances when you get bored, I have my eye on fresh linen next.
So, do you want to know the best part about this little set? It cost just £1. Yes, you didn't read that incorrectly, I picked up this little cutie at my local Poundland, can you believe it? A bargain like this just had to be shared! Who knew that Poundland had something to offer the beauty blogging world?
Are you totally astounded by the value of this little gem? Have you got any bargains to share, as always leave in the comments below, I love reading!
