I love a good candle, those that have a lasting smell and perfume the entire house with a certain warmth. It is such an important part of our household.
Because we live in the old part of town, a part of our wall is exposed with calicanto (it is a type of mixture of sand and rocks), this wall has holes in it so when we have dinners we like to put inside those holes tea light candles to give it that extra romance.
Candles in general are super special to me, they can transport you to a place and time pretty much like a perfume can. Also, during these heavy times where sometimes you feel good and positive but also sad and claustrophobic a candle with a nice soothing smell can help relax you.
After a heavy day, take a bath with your lights turned off and just candles and wine. Well, that is just soothing. If you don’t have a bath, a nice warm shower will do the same trick or read a book with dimmed light and a candle will transport your mind and completely relax you.
Here are my most favorite smells when buying a candle:
