After a long day at work, we rush to our homes for sanctuary and a little peace and quiet, only to dream about that next visit to the spa. For a calm and soothing atmosphere, we are more than willing to delve deep into our pockets for some uninterrupted down time.
Personally, the importance of recreating that harmonious sense of wellness at home never occurred to me until a recent visit to a close friend’s house. A manic marketing manager by day, she’s the one person I count on for an immediate burst of energy when inspiration is needed. However, her high-strung attitude, and extremely contagious force-of-nature approach becomes somewhat problematic during the evening hours, when all you want is a simple catch up session with a friend instead of high-pitched shrieks of outrage at every little recount of events gone by.
When someone is as constantly wired from working as hard as she is, then at-home relaxation becomes a must. After reading several features online about the importance of aromas and scents and their effect on the home atmosphere; I grabbed my friend, and headed no farther than Centrepoint, where the Lifestyle section is filled with a variety of decadent home accessories and our target item in mind: candles. I always thought that candles added the warmest touch to a home, and with brands like Woodrick and the endless scents on offer from the Yankee Candle Company; I knew we had found the perfect fix.
The first range that caught our eye included the Woodrick range, which looked as great as they smelled. The stunning candles are adorned with distinctive art gallery-inspired designs, and release sense-tingling fragrances. With designs like these, I found a double use from the Woodrick range, picking up several pieces to decorate the lonely dining table at my place. Fun and exotic scents in the collection include, Lavender Ivory, Santorini Melon, Ruby Dragon fruit, Fresh Persimmon and Aegean Sea. Made with high quality soy wax and premium fragrances, each candle features a natural wick made from organic wood to create the soothing sound of a crackling fire for that extra cozy feeling—and the perfect fix for my perplexed friend.
Another range of scented candles that I absolutely love and avidly collect includes the Yankee Candle, and the new collection only hinted at thoughts of sunshine, holidays, and fun in the sun. I brought several pieces for my house as well, fully embracing the sunny days to come. Why do I love the Yankee Candle Company? Each season brings in a new range that will equally refresh, and relax, as the scents from seasons before.
Before we even went to pay for the great and affordable candles we found, I noticed that my once extremely frazzled friend became immediately relaxed. She wouldn’t leave; taking her time to deeply inhale and relish the smell of each and every unique scent on offer from the latest candle ranges available at Lifestyle in Centrepoint.
