It’s Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas at Our Place


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at our place.

Glasshouse Candle Crush: Coney Island

I’ve had a long standing love affair with candles which I’ve talked about in previous posts here and here.  When I saw that Glasshouse Fragrances were bringing out a limited edition candle called ‘Coney Island’ I couldn’t wait try it out.

Coney Island’s fragrance is ‘Burnt Sugar and Fig’ and I have to say that it’s my new favourite.  It fills the air with the scent of freshly baked sugar cookies with a hint of warm caramelised fig and fairy floss.  Simply scent-sational.


The packaging is genius, with an explosion of fairground attractions with the candle tag being a ticket to ‘Admit One’ to Coney Island.  The jar is a beautiful deep blue, which I can’t wait to re-use once I’ve finished burning it.
