HoHoHoNoYouDont Sun 14-Apr-13 19:54:31

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 19:55:12

oh really?

christ have I been like SO 1990 with my vanilla ikea predilection?

Green ones are the best.

I have one burning in the kitchen now.

Those and the pink ones are my fave.

The vanilla is too sickly for me.

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 19:58:06

i might become have a conversion.
I cant smell anything atm. * puts nose near naked flame*

GlitterySkulls Sun 14-Apr-13 19:58:15

i've got the green one. also the vanilla.

as long as they smell nice, eh?

I HATE vanilla candles, really synthetic and nasty smelling. I also like the shade of green so I think your OH has done rather well.

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 20:00:02

i agree vanilla often ew, but these were tres subtle.

This is rocking my very foundations

grin at "puts nose near naked flame"

LagomOchLyckaSwede Sun 14-Apr-13 20:01:22

But it doesn't look green confused or is that just me?

I like the vanilla ones anyway!

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 20:01:53

Butts - suffice to say I now have no problem with nasal hair

threepiecesuite Sun 14-Apr-13 20:01:55

What flavour is it? Pear?

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 20:03:30

I think it suggests apple

IKEA scented candles have practically zero scent and I always fall for buying them, somehow forgetting that. He is not BU for choosing the green though smile

Yoghurty Sun 14-Apr-13 20:27:56

I have that candle burning in my living room as I type! smile

I also buy the vanilla and cranberry ones

Seriously, the reason IKEA put their candles in one mahoosive stash is so that combined they actually smell of something. Then you get your single candle home and realise it basically smells of wax.

I never do anything 'vanilla', think your DH was just trying to spice things up grin

Can it be true? that you hold there, in your mortal hand, a nugget of purest green?

What does green smell of?

GobShizz Sun 14-Apr-13 21:37:48

Green smells of green, silly! I like it, btw, but Ikea candles are just cheap crap regardless. Try Neom or Diptyque instead.

MaryMotherOfCheeses Sun 14-Apr-13 21:40:00

I got a green one. yyy it smells of nothing.

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 21:41:25

oh no they def smell

McNewPants2013 Sun 14-Apr-13 21:43:31

I don't care about the scent, candles in my house are decorative so the colour must match with every thing else.
