Hi, I’m Jay, a Buckeye with a fondness for pups, books, home fragrance, body care and the need to discuss it all. I’m an enthusiastic member of the wax community. Welcome to my little world, (beware, I’m a parenthetical writer).
Call it obsession, call it addiction, call it passion, or call it whatever you like…I call it enthusiasm. I am an unbridled candle enthusiast! I prefer Yankee Candles because of their variety of scents and products, but I do appreciate any quality home fragrance. My family, friends and fellow co-workers are well aware of my wax love, but I can only subject them to so much. So, I started this little blog in order to satisfy my “fragrance fix.”
I will feature several scents for review each month and break down the fragrance notes, the scent performance (the wax throw) and my recommendation for or against the product. Being a wax collector means that I’ve been known to stalk the stores looking for my favorites and scour the internet for retired scents to add to my collection. I’ve worked briefly at a Yankee Candle store and will provide as much product knowledge and insight as I have learned.
My recent infatuation is with small business vendor wax, expect a lot of love for it here. My favorite scent category =team fresh.
My posts are usually inspired by what is occurring in my life and sharing my loves of wax and fragrance. Being a library specialist means I may provide some literary, music or historical references. Because I just love to share and discuss my wax interests, you may find my public Instagram account @ the_candle_enthusiast.
I’ve also joined a book reading challenge in 2017 and will update my progress throughout the year.
Any candle collectors or fragrance lovers out there are welcome to question or comment:)
P.S. I receive no compensation for my reviews.
