Wilko Vanilla Scented Tealights
For only £1.50 (or £1.75 if they’re full price) you can buy 30 vanilla scented tealight candles. The candles come in a clear plastic bag, with a grey swirly printed label on the front. On the printed label is the Wilko logo, the name of the product along with how many candles you get and it also states how long the candles burn for, which is 3.5 hours. The packaging is extremely plain but seeing as you will take the candles out of the bag anyway, I don’t think that this matters too much.
Although the packaging states that each candle will burn for roughly 3.5 hours, I haven’t found this to be true. At most, you will get about 2.5 hours out of each candle. If you’re like me and have quite a few candles burning at any one time, you will be able to go through a bag of 30 tealights quite quickly. When burning, the candles do smell very nice although not too strongly. There could be more of the vanilla scent but then what can you really expect for £1.50. You can smell the vanilla while the candle is burning although not very much.
