I am always on the lookout for bargain candles with interesting scents. This week I have been burning soy candles from Two Leaf & Co, an etailer that also carries scented body lotions, creams, and soaps. Here are the three candles that I tried:
Orange Blossom: This is a lovely soliflore orange blossom. It is only lightly sweet, but is considerably less dry and bitter than my old standby orange blossom candle, Soyology Venus. Very cheerful and a nice bathroom scent.
Pomegranate & Rosewater: The notes also include bergamot and black tea. This is a fruity floral, not too sweet, and perfectly balanced between the pomegranate and rose. It is very sparkling and bright, and a great scent for summer. It has inspired me to look for more pomegranate perfumes, so please comment if you have any recommendations.
Iced Black Tea: Described as "aged black tea leaves, zest of bergamot, rose petals & smoky cedar wood." This is my favorite of the three. It is a deep, slightly smoky tea with a bit of citrus, nicely dry, with very light wood undertones.
A 6.5 oz scented candle in a glass jar with a screw on lid is very reasonably priced at $12. They burn clean and the throw is good. Available at twoleafandco.
