A Few Candle Mini Reviews

OK, so are you ready for some quick and dirty candle fragrance reviews? Here you go!

Aura Radiant

Aura Radiant – Notes listed include grapefruit, goji berry and bergamot. Retails for $26.

This is one tart berry! Somebody add some vodka to this, it would be delicious! Grapefruit lovers should like this one. I’m not even a grapefruit lover and I ended up buying this. Great price and great quality.

Both are from the Muse Collection. There is also a Georgia lamp which looks just like the vase but with a shade. The lamp is $550. There is a Georgia Cookie Jar but the lid bothers me because it looks much too vaginal (supposed to be lips with a tongue sticking out but he knew what he was doing, you don’t have to be… Continue reading
