|My two favorite colors!|
One of the candles I purchased is a 1.9 ounce tin of Lavender Rosemary Mint. I'm not normally a huge lavender fan, but the mix with mint was intriguing. Smelling it cold, you can definitely tell it's a lavender type. But it's bright and cheerful, definitely not a bedtime fragrance at all.
|Isn't that cute?|
Next up is a 3 ounce votive in printed glass. I liked the idea of these so much I would have bought more, but the others scents were sold out. This one is Rapture, which is a combination of patchouli and cassia. Patchouli has always struck me as a masculine fragrance, but this one is vibrant and lively and not heavy like I would have thought. I'm not familiar with cassia but it certainly makes for a good combination with the patchoui.
I got 4 aromatherapy tins in different scents. Going clockwise the purple one is Harmony with Lavender and Geranium, described as "Lavender-Geranium blend promotes balance and relaxation. It helps relieve insomnia and migraines. "(it is much more of a traditional lavender that you would expect compared to Rapture)
The Green is Meditation,"Rosewood-Cedarwood blend creates a calming awareness. It stimulates circulation and relieves congestion." (so far my favorite of the aromatherapy line)
Orange is Radiance "Ylang Ylang-Tangerine is a warm, delightful blend that inspires well-being and wisdom. " (A warm citrus)
Last but not least the pink is Sensuality. "Palmarosa-Rose is an eloquent aphrodisiac that stimulates passion. It alleviates nervousness and exhaustion. " (Very bright and very sweet)
Also, I love how the shape of the container looks like a little beehive. It adds a little interest to what otherwise would be a boring little glass.
And although I only bought candles this time, Periwinkle Rose was nice enough to give me a little post it pad with their logo and website on it. The Big Dipper Matchbook was also a nice touch.
Since they just came in, I can't review about how well the throw or burn, so that will come as an update in a couple days. I've heard mixed things about beeswax so I'm curious as to what my experience will be, but as soon as I know, you will. So stay tuned! :)
