Godiva Strawberry Rose Scented Candle — A Chocoholic’s Paradise
I’m tardy for the party on this one but, hey, better late than never, right? As you might have inferred from the heart-covered box pictured above, this Godiva Chocolatier Strawberry Rose Scented candle was originally released for Valentine’s Day and was produced as a limited edition offering. Fortunately, since we just stepped into the month of March, you can still get your hands on one of these amazing candles, which smell like those sumptuous chocolate-covered strawberries we all longingly behold as we pass the window of a Godiva shop. There are also some red rose notes, but the main scent you’ll detect is that mouth-watering combination of creamy milk chocolate and juicy strawberry.
When the candle’s savory scent fills the room, I can’t help but remember this passage from Joanne Harris‘ novel Chocolat (on which the Juliette Binoche-helmed movie was based): “In my dreams I gorge on chocolates, I roll in chocolates, and their texture is not brittle but soft as flesh, like a thousand mouths on my body, devouring me in fluttering small bites. To die beneath their tender gluttony seems the culmination of every temptation I have ever known.” That about sums up the exquisite power of the almighty chocolate and expounds upon its intrinsic seductiveness. The scent, combined with the plump, watery zest of the strawberry, is fodder for more indulgent dreams.
