The biggest benefit of having your workspace in a store is that it is not hard to get inspired. The biggest disadvantage is that it is super tempting to leave with an empty wallet at the end of the day. Ever since my boyfriend and I moved in together, I have been on constant hunt for things that make the apartment look super cozy. Now, what is easier than to add scented candles, tons and tons of them?

My problem with scented candles is that I am not too fond of the regular vanilla and lavender ones you usually bump into. These ‘Orange Blossom’ ones are just special enough and can be found at The Collector (Eerste van der Helststraat 1D in Amsterdam) and I can tell you they smell gorgeous. There is also Thyme, Mown Grass and Jasmin available and I am waiting for the day my favorite -Fig- gets restocked.

You can find them here.

  1. Oh die zien er mooi uit! Als ze ook nog eens zo goed ruiken… ;)

  2. Ik hou van geurkaarsen! Deze zien er mooi uit :)

  3. Orange Blossom is such a delicate, lovely scent, especially for a home – I could definitely see myself littering my apartment with a ton of those candles!!!

  4. Ik ben ook dol op geurkaarsen! Al moet ik ze wel in etappes het huis in smokkelen, want waarom?! heb ik meer dan één geurkaars nodig wordt er dan gevraagd door de man des huizes ;)
    Ben erg benieuwd naar deze serie. Mijn ultieme favoriet is nog steeds ‘Under a Fig tree’ van Rituals en de ‘Clean cotton’ lijn van Yankee Candles! Ook een echte aanrader. Ze branden namelijk heel goed en gaan veel langer mee dan iedere andere kaars die ik ooit heb geprobeerd.

  5. Ik ben dol op geurlaarsen maar van teveel of de verkeerde geur word ik echt misselijk. Ik ben enorm fan van die van de Ikea al zijn deze verpakkingen weleen heel stuk leuker ;)

  6. i love scented candles! now i have a candle with espresso scent in my room and it´s unbelieveable! it smells like you´re somewhere in café <3 so someday when you´ll be looking for new candle, I suggest this one :)

  7. I’m the opposite. I absolutely love the smell of vanilla (not the ones that are too sweet) and use them for the bathroom and to scent my wardrobe! I find it’s a good balance since I mix it up with various Diptyque candles here and there.

  8. those look beautiful! any ideas on how to look for them online? :) xo, Alma

  9. ooh nice, orange sounds like it would be delicious indeed! :) the collector is a cute little store, thanks for sharing this one with us!

  10. I’m a fan of interesting scents like that as well. Bet it smells yummy!


  11. Mijn favoriete geurkaars is van Rituals – Under a fig three heet hij geloof ik. :)

  12. Ik ben echt een fan van geurkaarsen

  13. I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with candles and everything scented. What I mean is, I’m too picky with scents. I hate the typical vanilla and lavender, I hate things that smell like cinnamon (but I love it as food) but I actually like scented candles with a fresh scent, like citrus, strawberry (loooove everything strawberry), apple, cherry blossom…
    I guess I’m into different scents and not the usual ones.

  14. Probeer ook eens de kaarsen of stokjes “under a fig tree” van Rituals, dan wil je nooit meer iets anders!

  15. I really love scented candles, but I don’t want them in my bedroom cause then I won’t light them. Waiting to buy my own house!
