Dusk Candles Haul and Review :)

Hey everyone!

So a while ago I decided to invest in some really nice candles, I have tried them all now and wanted to give you my review on them :)

I purchased three candles from Dusk. These potted candles retail for $25, but there was a deal going on 3 for the price of 2. I love scented candles but never in my life have I spent over $10 on a single candle, but these are absolutely stunning and 100% worth the money. Their fragrance somehow manages to full your house but never becomes over powering. 

One of the best things about these is that the smell lingers in the room long after the candle has been put out. The first time I burned one I came home the following evening and my apartment still smelt beautiful. Another amazing thing is that they say on the label that they last 70 hours. Considering that mine have barely a dent in them I would say this is completely true :)


The three scents I purchased were Tibet (Lychee and Black Tea), Choc Gingebread Cookie
and Well Being (Tangerine and Lavender).

Tibet (Lychee and Black Tea) is a very fresh, fruity smell. It reminds me of cutting up tropical fruits, or some kind of fresh squeezed fruit drink. This smells very truly fruity and not artificially fruity. It's a beautiful spring scent. The tea gives this quite an exotic twist.

Choc Gingerbread smells like someone is baking delicious gingerbread. It is a very sweet, warm scent. You can definitely smell the gingerbread more than the chocolate, but the chocolate is still there. It feels like a very Christmas candle.

Well Being (Tangerine and Lavender) smells very citrusey but with that tiny hint of lavender. This makes the scent less zesty and more calming. This also feels like a very spring time or summer scent. I think the lavender turns this into a really soothing scent.


When I picked up these candles I also purchased a wick trimmer and snuffer for only $12 :)

Overall I would totally recommend checking out Dusk, and if you don't have a store close to you, the have an online store here - http://www.dusk.com.au/default.aspx

Do you like candles? If so what are your favourite brands/scents?

  3. These sound really lovely - especially how long they last scent-wise. I don't really use candles but I think they're a great way to add some mood/ambiance to a space and fragrance your place :)

  5. Ooo these look amazing! I'm a candle lover too :) thinking I will need to go and smell that gingerbread one, I love bakery scents. My favourite candle brand would have to be Yankee Candle, but they are pretty pricey, have you tried them? I actually ordered a Slatkin & Co candle a couple of weeks ago, can't wait for it to arrive!
