These wax coated wicks, although meant for decorative purposes, serve us a lot more than that. To most of us a candle is a daily stress reliever, to some it is love for the sight of little lighted ornaments in our homes, while to others — a must-have on special occasions. In short, a lighted candle is a little piece of joy, if it is scented, well, halleluiah!
A smell evokes memories like no other, and when our favourite candles do not only come in gorgeous packaging and designs but with our favourite fragrances as well, it does not get any better than that. These Yankee Candles come in such large jars and eye-catching colours they can serve as one decorative element by themselves.
Cinnamon and Cedar will likely relieve your nostrils, while Lavender will calm your senses. Choose your scents at any Yellow, Ecstasy or Banglashoppers outlets at Tk 2000 a jar.
IRIDESCENT IVORY BLOCKS
We all love a classic white candle, especially ones that come in various sizes so we can pile them together in a corner and let them shine away. These thick white candles can be found in a lot of places, but Aarong holds some quite unique ones that might replace your old white columns.
From gold leaf outlines, to rectangular pillars, right down to the borders, Aarong has some pretty unique white candles. These cost around Tk200 to Tk500 a piece, depending on sizes and designs.
Whoever said tea lights are boring surely has not seen Absolem x Wicks's ethereal tea lights. Although from the side they look the same, from the top they are a completely different story. Some look like waves with gold flakes, while others mimic green emerald rocks. These little lights costing Tk 200 for a two-piece set will surely add a little sparkle, and of course make your tea time a lot more magical.
Absolem x Wicks also has a new collection of Jar Candles for anyone looking for bigger sizes unlike their regular tea lights. You can find them here: www.facebook.com/absolemxwicks/
