While browsing the seasonal items in Tesco I discovered that they were selling a couple of Wax Lyrical candles and reed diffusers with Christmas themed scents. I’ve never owned any Wax Lyrical products before so was intrigued to see what they were like. I wanted to pick one up as I love having different themed scents in winter, I used to love the Yankee ‘snowflake cookie’ candle but they can be quite expensive.
Wax Lyrical had a couple of Christmas themed ones, such as one called penguin hugs, but I decided to pick up ‘Gingerbread man’ because I love sweet smells. The candle smells exactly like freshly baked gingerbread, not too strong like pure ginger, you can smell the sweetness of it which is great. Just taking the lid of you get instantly hit with the smell!
I burnt this candle for the first time whilst I was putting up a little Christmas tree in my flat. The candle claims to have up to 35 hours burning time, I left it to burn for a good 5 hours or so and the wax only went down by a centimetre so I believe it’s claim is true! It burns evenly which is fab too and when you enter the room you can instantly smell it as well which is what you want from a candle.
Overall this scent is perfect for Christmas and for £4 it is a bargain as they can normally be so expensive! I’m going to be burning this one a lot over Christmas and may pick up another Wax Lyrical candle or even their reed diffusers. I even featured it in my November favourites here.
