New-In [CANDLES] : Simple Indulgence Amberwood & Cedar

1:54:00 AM

Since my first post about scented candles, a few of you have commented here on the blog and also emailed me asking about candles and want me to feature more scented candles. I don't have a lot of candle collection yet but I do have a few candles at home right now. One of the newest candle in my collection is this Simple Indulgence candle in Amberwood & Cedar which I just recently purchased from Ace Hardware with a discount price. Simple Indulgence is actually from the Candle-Lite brand. I don't know what's the difference is from their regular candles, maybe it's just one of their special lines?

Anyway, Ace Hardware is where I mostly got my candles, because they have a few stocks of candles from the brand: "Yankee candles" as well as "Candle-Lite" among other random brands on their rack. Candle-Lite is cheaper than Yankee but I think the quality is not that far off. Candle-Lite is like the cheaper version of Yankee, although they are not really cheap themselves anyway, just slightly cheaper from Yankee.


So I found out that this big candle was on sale at that time. The sale wasn't that much, it was only 10% discount. So it was originally IDR 129,000 (around $12) and after the discount it was IDR 116,000 (around $10). So it wasn't that much, but if I can get it a little bit cheaper then why not? ^o^

This is a big jar (8.5 oz / 240 g) that has two wicks, and it was the cheapest among the other candles with the same size there at Ace Hardware. I have wanted to have big jar candles with multiple wicks, because more wicks would bring out more scents when it's lit. The big jar from Yankee  Candle was too expensive, so I turned to Candle-Lite instead. I've bought and tried Candle-Lite before (in Juicy Black Cherries) and I loved it, so I thought why not buy another Candle-Lite ^_^

After sniffing some of the candles available, me and hubby decided to get this Amberwood & Cedar one because this smells heavenly. The scent was woodsy as you can tell from the name of this candle, so it was masculine enough for hubby, and I happened to love woodsy notes too, so this scent is definitely a must-have.


I love sniffing it straight from the jar because it smells sooo goood to me. I really love warm woodsy scents, and this is definitely one of the best woodsy scents I've ever sniffed.  

I haven't lit this candle yet because I want to preserve it, LOL. And I can just smell the scent whenever I open the lid. Yes, the scent has a strong throw even when it's not lit, so all I have to do is just open the lid and put it next to me, and the scent will come out ;)

Overall, although I haven't lit this yet but I already decided that I really love this big Simple Indulgence candle, because this definitely has a stronger scent than their mini-size sister. I would recommend this candle especially if you love warm woodsy notes (this smells like a lush green forest to me ;p).


A little tips in choosing candles: If you're looking for a great scent throw (when lit), pick a candle with two or three wicks because the more wicks they have, the more it will let out the scent. Also, don't forget to trim the wick whenever you want to lit the candle to avoid black smoke that could darkened the inside of the jar ;p


Hugs and Kissies,
