A few weeks ago my last two Yankee Candles burned out and I knew I needed to replace them. We have guests coming next week and monsoon season had left the dogs smelling very… doggish. New Yankee Candles just were not in the budget, but on top of that my son’s allergy and asthma doctors had recommended switching to soy candles. I decided to give Lilac Ave. a try. The price is so great that I figured if they bothered my son’s asthma, I wouldn’t be out that much.
Well, I opened the box and immediately decided that if they bothered him, I would just burn the candles when he isn’t home or stock up on his medications (ok, not really). So… there was this smell coming from the box. I was a little confused because I knew it wasn’t what I had ordered. It smelled like cookies and I had ordered Grapefruit and Jasmine, and Fresh Linen. Turns out, Lilac had included a sample of one of her tarts! I quickly hid it so DH wouldn’t be expecting cookies!
