Hello, I’m Isabella and I’m hooked on candles. Properly, 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 once I met considered one of my greatest associates for the primary time. On the time she was working for Bobbi Brown PR and we had 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 reward.
A few years have passed by and Sam left Bobbi Brown however nonetheless stays considered one of my bestest associates and candle lover companions!
Now on the time, I used to be extra of a wax soften type of woman however Sam’s reward actually opened a wormhole up for me. This was through the Harry Slatkin years at Tub and Physique Works! Harry was creating numerous the scents which might be at present cherished by hundreds of thousands of Tub and Physique Works followers. To at the present time I’ve candles hoarded away that say “Slakin Residence” on them that had been bought at Tub and Physique Works. That was additionally when candles had been like 2 for $15!
You recognize, the nice outdated days.
Just a few 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 larger than Tub and Physique Works however they had been stronger and had a cleaner burner. The primary time I bought a number of three from QVC I immediately fell in love. They had been strongly scented, got here housed within the heaviest glass jars, and had been simply superb. So luxurious!
I bear in mind on the time he was bringing two or three scents collectively in a set for round $40-45 on QVC. I cherished this! These days you may really rating among 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 totally 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 inexpensive BUT….right here’s the crappy catch! They provide 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 lately. 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 delivery 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 now have it on the market. I hate this new enterprise mannequin. Can we please return to totally different scented units?
Please and thanks!
Is anybody else feeling this?
