A Smelly Obsession Take 2!

Although my blog is relatively new, for those of you who have joined me on my journey thus far you will know that I am candle obsessed. In my blog post A Smelly Obsession, a precursor to this post, I write about my love of candles and my hunt to find a particular type after watching one of my favourite YouTubers.

I enjoy walking into a room and being greeted with a subtle fragrance. To me, each room is a different personality and I express this via scents.
