Girls love things that smell delicious — perfumes, oils, good cooking and, of course, candles. Candles can set the tone, change a room, or create a fresh-scented atmosphere. But do you ever wonder just what you’re breathing in while they’re burning down? Is it just a sweet scent or it could be icky chemicals?
The remedy? Soy candles. I recently purchased these amazing soy candles from Etsy in an effort to refresh my living space. Perfectly scented, dye-free, and 100% soy, they’re filled into rustic 8 oz. Mason jars. These candles are made in small batches and hand-poured. Did I mention that they’re Vegan friendly? Check out my faves below.
It comes as no surprise that one of the most romantic lyrics in music history is the late Teddy Pendergrass’
Turn off the lights…and light a candle.
Tonight I’m in a romantic mood, yeah.
Perhaps I’m just biased towards ol’ Teddy, since my parents met at one of his concerts. Talk about a 70’s love connection!
Well, this Valentine’s season, make like Mr. P and get that candle-lit glow with a few of my favorite luxurious brands. Your sweetie won’t know whether to kiss ya or sniff ya!
I burn candles non-stop in every room of my house- literally, it’s the live version of Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire. And the brand that I rely on to keep going and going and going is Voluspa. Deliciously fragrant and with crazy burn power, these Kings of Kandles are worth every (s)cent. I am OBSESSED with the Makassar Ebony & Peach Candle. I don’t usually do the fruity scents, but this mixture is so intoxicating and sophisticated. No Fruit Roll-Up smellin’ candles here. Other Voluspa scents that I love are Crisp Champagne,
The extraordinarily extravagant Jonathan Adleris the leader of my new style religion. And his beyond glorious candle line makes me want to praise the Fashion Gods! I swear I had a “moment” when I took a whiff of the Big Sur candle which mixes bergamot, vetiver, cedar and nutmeg. Other scents in this destination-themed collection are Capri, Palm Beach and Acapulco.
For the girly-girl who wants her home to smell just as luscious as she, Tyler Candles are it! This hip brand has scents titled “High-Maintenance,” “Diva,” and “Hollywood” that could give even the most fragrant of eau de toilette a run for its money.
The most intriguing aspect of Dayna Decker’s couture candle collection is the EcoWood Wick, made from organic wood and designed to burn cleaner than a traditional cotton wick. The gorgeous glass candleholders will add a touch of style to any room in the house, and even the wax is made as eco-friendly as possible. Talk about chic gone green. Some of my favorite scents include Rose and Violetta.
All right Tartelettes, Mimi has given you the tools for a little V-day romance. So get to shoppin’ then smoochin
