The scents of summer

Today's post is brought to you from my balcony!  I braved the heat (which is scorchio at the moment) to head out there this morning and take a couple of shots before retreating sharpish back into the apartment and the luxury of air conditioning!

I am a candle LOVER!  Even in summer I have a candle burning away every night in the living room, I think there is something comforting and homely about it.  But, in summer I like to come away from the heavier, almost festive scents like vanilla, chocolate and anything containing the word 'frosty' and head for lighter more summery fragrances.

There is something about Bath and Body Works that I cannot resist.   I know there is outcry in the UK to open a store there and it would go down a storm if it did I am sure.

Here's what I picked up for my summer candle selection.

So Summertime S'mores might be cheating a little but it smells so deliciously of marshmallow and vanilla-I might save this one for Autumn!

Limoncello and Sicilian Orange smell amazingly fresh, crisp and citrusy, whereas Strawberry Picnic reminds me of jam tarts and summer school holidays when we went out to play all day.  Who wouldn't want a candle that smells like ice cream and Watermelon Lemonade reminds me of sunny holidays and cocktails.

Do you burn candles in the summer?  What's your ultimate fave scent?
