Review: WAXdrop Candles
As I said before, I love candles. I think that it doesn't matter how moody or sad you are, if you light up a candle, it just makes you feel better. Especially scented ones.
Here in Portugal there aren't that many companies that sells GOOD scented candles, it's very rare... So I've been searching online for some candles that would be scented and not so expensive. I didn't find anything! Some people on youtube are advertising some companies, but their shipping prices are scary, so I gave up.
Until I saw a video of TheBombshellSuit talking about her friend's candles, and I had to check out her store.
I was in Love! The scents were fun and original, and the candles were so affordable and the shipping rates as well!
So I ordered just one candle, I wanted to try them before really committing to them. I order the scent "Bamboo Rain" which she describes as "A calming scent of bamboo, crisp green foliage topped off with notes of a light sexy musk and downpour of fresh rainfall. Extremely soothing and sensual."
I don't like food scents on candles because they just make me wanna eat more, my favorite scents for perfumes and candles are musky, oriental, floral and earthy scents. This candles it's definitely an earthy/floral scent with a hint of musk to it, I love it!
The scent it's not overpowering at all. You don't even have to burn the candle to feel the beautiful scent... It lasts a long time in my room and the candle burns really clean.
I love how simple and beautiful the candles look. That crystallized look to it it's just gorgeous! The best thing about them it's they are made with natural palm wax, cotton wicks and reusable tins. They don't put any additives or dyes on them, that's why they are only white, which I like.
They come in a little cardboard box which it's recycled, and she always writes you a personal note thanking you for ordering from her.
I live in Portugal, and the store it's in Pittsburgh... It only took 3 working days for my candle to arrive, that's amazing! When I received the packaging I could smell the scent through the box which was lovely.
In the evening, whenever I finish my workout and before I take a shower, I light up this candle in my room. After I finish my shower and I go to my room to put on my moisturizers and clothes, it's just filled with this gorgeous earthy scent that makes you feel more relax and calm. That's my little ritual with this candle. I've been burning it everyday since I got it and it's still in a pretty good shape, next month I'll definitely buy more.

Keep in mind that they sell really quickly, that's why she doesn't have much more scents in stock!
