Ashland Candle (Michael’s)

Since I need ~30 jar candles for my wedding, I’ve been trying to be a bit more frugal. The Ashland summer scents are on sale at Michael’s for $2.39 for a large jar. Yup, I can’t beat that! So I bought the four that were in my color scheme.

Mango Cilantro: I like this one alot! It’s like the mango from Mango Peach Salsa and the cilantro from Pineapple Cilantro. My first impression of this scent is great!

Forever Sunshine: This one I ONLY bought because it was yellow. It kind of smells like a bathroom cleaner scent…it’s not bad, but I do not like florals (and this is no exception) and I will only think of a bathroom.

Raspberry Lime: This one is okay….the citrus notes, again, remind me a little bit of a cleaning product…but it’s not bad. the raspberry note is sweet, but I wish it were stronger.

Orange Vanilla: This one is great; it’s virtually an exact make to Orange Dreamsicle. It really does smell like a creamsicle with sweet cream and oranges!

Sooooo….I guess loving 2/4 and liking one of the remaining 2 is great for under $3. I have no idea what the throws are like (and won’t until my wedding next July), but I’d suggest stopping by. For $3, it’s worth the risk. Oh, and they are $5 regularly!

Perhaps my favorite find: This $10 coffee maker I got from target for my office! It’s practically already paid for itself!
