25 Things You’ll Only Understand If You’re Obsessed With Candles


1. Lighting one is never enough, you’ve got to go ahead and light all those Yankees for maximum ambience

2. And you’ll never trust anyone that manages to refrain from lighting all of theirs at once

3. You have some candles that stay in the box just to be looked at because they cost you a week’s worth of wages. For. Real.

4. When the wick becomes a stump at the bottom of the candle and you know you should throw it away but that jar cost you like £30

5. You’re constantly distracted by candles when you go shopping

6. Cos you always need a new scent to match the season

7. You insist on sniff-testing every single candle in the store, no matter how many times security clock you doing it

8. You miss seasonal scents when they go. WHY MUST YOU GO *I whisper to the mulled wine and cinnamon apple Airwick beauty*

9. Christmas Cookie is life!

10. When Airwick do a matching plug in for your candle… *wells up*

15. You’re not afraid to admit you’ve bought a candle on the name alone. Candy Cane Lane… C’mon!
