Bomb Cosmetics – Cherry Bakewell

bomb cosmetics - cherry bakewell

Hello my Loves!

Now like most of us I’m a huge candle addict, if I go into a shop that sells candles and I can’t help but have a wee sniff. My friends constantly make fun of me for being unable to leave Primark without coming out with a packet of tea lights, who can blame me, they’re a total bargain.

However as much as they mock me for it, whenever they give me gift’s for whatever reason you can guarantee that there is at least one candle in the mix, so really they’re only aiding the addiction.

Which leads me to receiving the lovely Cherry Bakewell from Bomb Cosmetics. Normally I can be a bit fussy with cherry scents as I often find they can be a tad synthetic and overly sweet for my taste so I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this scent. Cherry Bakewell’s were a huge part of my childhood, my birthday parties weren’t complete without them being part of the menu which is why my friend Becky chose it for me. The sweet scent of the cherry and marzipan really create an uplifting scent that left me feeling nostalgic.

I felt the scent really managed to fill the room well and I could still smell it in the air the next morning which is always a nice bonus.

I will definitely be checking out some of the other scents that bomb cosmetics has to offer.

BOMB COSMETICS CANDLES: REVIEW

DSCF2726

Hi lovelies! Today I went shopping in the sales and while I had very little luck in the clothing department, I did find these little beauties hiding at the till point in Clinton Cards! They weren’t marked as sale items, but I figured as they were Christmas scents they probably were and I was right! One thing I always need at Christmas is more candles and these babies were down from £7.99 to just £3.99 each, which is amazing for such gorgeous quality candles, so how could I possibly say no?DSCF2727

Bomb Cosmetics Candles are very similar to Lily Flame candles, all presented in gorgeous little tins, with cutesy packaging and pretty little coloured wax shapes (in this case cute little hearts) stuck into the candle itself. Despite having Christmas names, I thought these two would still be appropriate for after christmas as they’re not obviously Christmassy looking and the scents are both pretty, sweet, girly scents, fab for all year round! Mistletoe Kiss is described on the Bomb Cosmetics site as “A luxurious oriental accord of patchouli, vanilla, warm spice and musk. A vibrant twist of mandarin, red berries and orange open the fragrance”, I do smell the fruit and vanilla, but at the same time, this candle is quite a light, fresh scent, while still having a warm, homely smell – just gorgeous! Snowberry Cupcakes is described as “A sweet treat of festive berries, glazed in caramel and sugar for a sweet cupcake delight. With pure myrrh and ylang ylang essential oils”, which I totally agree with! Again, its a warm scent and fills the entire room with it’s gorgeous fragrance, but it’s also super sweet, with fruity/ berry/ bakery scents all rolled into one beautiful, very girly candle.DSCF2734

If you can get to a Clintons any time soon, I’d definitely recommend keeping an eye out for these candles, particularly if you love sweet and girly scents. My Clintons also had other scents in Secret Santa and Chocolate Orange, but Bomb Cosmetics have a whole range of beautiful candles to choose from so it’s definitely worth a peek!
