Hello, I’m Isabella and I’m hooked on candles. Effectively, any residence perfume actually. Candles, oils, sprays, no matter…if it smells good I’m all about it. However candles are positively a ardour of mine. It began a few years in the past after I met one in every of my finest pals for the primary time. On the time she was working for Bobbi Brown PR and we have been assembly over weblog stuff. Throughout one of many first or second conferences, she gifted me a Tub and Physique Works Marshmallow Fireplace Candle and the obsession with BBW Candles started.
Sam, in the event you’re studying this. I’ll by no means forgive you for that present.
A few years have passed by and Sam left Bobbi Brown however nonetheless stays one in every of my bestest pals and candle lover companions!
Now on the time, I used to be extra of a wax soften type of lady however Sam’s present actually opened a wormhole up for me. This was throughout the Harry Slatkin years at Tub and Physique Works! Harry was creating numerous the scents which might be at the moment beloved by tens of millions of Tub and Physique Works followers. To today I’ve candles hoarded away that say “Slakin Residence” on them that have been bought at Tub and Physique Works. That was additionally when candles have been like 2 for $15!
You realize, the nice outdated days.
A couple of years in the past Harry Slaktin returned with a vengeance. He created a model new assortment of candles known as Homeworx and it turned a smashing success. His 4 wick candles weren’t solely greater than Tub and Physique Works however they have been stronger and had a cleaner burner. The primary time I bought a number of three from QVC I immediately fell in love. They have been strongly scented, got here housed within the heaviest glass jars, and have been simply superb. So luxurious!
I keep in mind on the time he was bringing two or three scents collectively in a set for round $40-45 on QVC. I beloved this! These days you possibly can truly rating a number of the Homeworx Candles at TJMaxx and Marshall’s for round $17 every and belief me, in the event you discover them there do seize them!
So why all of the hate?
Harry or maybe QVC stopped creating units that contained a couple of completely different scents and it’s driving me psychological. I used to like buying a set of three candles with three scents. Granted, they do nonetheless do that a bit however now they think about launching new scents in duos that are nonetheless fairly reasonably priced BUT….right here’s the crappy catch! They offer you two of the identical scent.
I’ve SO many candles I simply don’t need two of the identical scent. They launched some beautiful Halloween scents not too long ago. And sure, I did find yourself buying Halloween Sweet, Depraved Cherry, and Haunted Woods however dude, I didn’t want two 18 oz candles of the identical scent. Once more, it was a deal at $42 and free transport however nonetheless……
I miss the times he’d simply embrace three of the scents in a single set!
I ponder who determined this was a good suggestion? Simply so we’ve got it on the market. I hate this new enterprise mannequin. Can we please return to completely different scented units?
Please and thanks!
Is anybody else feeling this?
