Wilko Vanilla Scented Tealights

I’m a massive lover of candles, especially those which are vanilla scented. However, I hate paying a lot for candles so Wilkinson is always my first choice for stocking up. The product in question for this review is Wilko Vanilla Scented Tealights. As this is a Wilko product, you will only be able to find it in store or online.
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.
The candles themselves are housed in a round metal casing. The casing holds the wax safely and strongly, without the wax being able to move inside. The wax is white in colour, due to the candle being vanilla scented and has a small white wick in the middle. These candles are very much like any other tealight candle that you can find from other shops.
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.
These candles are good value for money and although they don’t burn for too long or smell very strongly, they would be a nice addition to bigger candles with the same scent.
You can buy these online here!
