Actually, you don't need Candelle's just for Valentine's Day- you need it all year long. They are releasing their Spring line FRIDAY, and I was lucky to try out two of their Spring line scents- African Gardenia and Mint Nectarine. I've written about Candelles before but to refresh your memory they are a USA brand, made by partners Kelley and CJ. They hand make their candles with soy, and even the cotton wick. I love their branding, the people behind it and after using them for a year, it's a brand I'm happy to support long term. They also added white caps to their re-usable mason jars, I love the look of it.
African Gardenia is one of the beautiful new scents coming out. It instantly takes me back years ago when I desperately wanted the original Marc Jacobs perfume. When I lit it, Scott was asked if I had done anything different- did we get anything new? Did I change the sheets? Did I buy a new dress? The power of scent blows my mind and this was a great example.
Mint Nectarine I've used when getting ready for bed. I got the small size, it doesn't take up space on my bathroom counter and it adds some comfort to my already mundane routine. Add a little music and putting on moisturizer is a little...sexy? Weird but true. It has a clean crisp scent of mint, like the kind picked from an herb garden, not the kind that smells like mouthwash. The nectarine scents adds a sweetness to it and it makes me wonder when nectarines will be in season again. I wish laundry smelled like this.
