Tag Archives: DIY Scented Candles
Hello, it’s Adam here – causing a bit of a stink on a Friday afternoon…
Our sense of smell is a very powerful thing indeed – one whiff of an old familiar scent can take your brain hurtling back through time in an instant, filling you with the emotion that you were feeling at that time.
Soon after I bought my first car (a Citroen AX for those interested) I took a few of my mates on a road trip to Newquay. Before picking them up in my pride and joy I stopped off at a petrol station and bought an air freshener in the shape of Eric Cartman. This was an attempt to offset the baby Citroens current odour – a smell I can best describe as old dog. With the faintest hint of Benson and Hedges.
Cartman filled the warm August air with coconut and this lasted for the duration of my week in Cornwall. It was a great holiday, full of fun, sun, laughter and freedom. Whenever I smell a coconut scented air freshener it takes me straight back to the summer of ’98 and puts a smile on my face.
So, where is all this going? Well today we have a guest D.I.Y post from Chloe Adlington of Adore Wedding Blog fame and she is going to show you how to make your own scented candles…
