Let There Be HOLIDAY Lights
By Roberta Brown, Lifestyles Editor
Candles can really change a mood. everyone feels special by candle-light!
A candle also makes a classic, one-size-fits-all, welcome gift.
When you’re looking to select something special for your home or for a gift that candle has to smell great, look great, and be a great price!
From Chesapeake Bay Candle
We really like the selection of scents and sizes from Chesapeake Bay Candle’s Heritage Collection (small jar $15/ $25 larger size)
Check out a 2-Wick Tin & 3-Wick Coffee Table Jar or whatever size you like.
The Heritage Collection’s theme: the beauty of Maryland’s shoreline.
The scents: are inspired by local botanicals and fruit.
The frosted glass jars have fiberboard tops that look like wood for an organic look.
Our editor’s sample was Chestnut & Acorn which as you might suspect is nutty, earthy and also has notes of rich vanilla notes, spiced up with roasted chestnuts, brown sugared pecans, and cinnamon.
It’s “gourmand” without being too sweet or “faux,” a unisex, sophisticated and slightly spicy scent that is perfect for chilly days to warm the spirit.
Other scents in this holiday candle collection include Pumpkin Latte, Vanilla Biscotti, Cinnamon Spice, Balsam Fir.
Where to Buy: ChesapeakeBayCandle.com, Target, and major home good stores nationwide.
Two From Northern Lights Candle:
Art and light meet lovely gift in this Tropical Vetiver and Grapefruit Roca Bowl from Northern Lights Candles ($27.99).
This large and stunningly swirled stoneware ceramic vessel contains a soy wax blend candle with 3-wicks to light your days and nights.
Our editor’s sample’s scent was Coastal Salt Air with Vetiver, Grapefruit, and Oakmoss.
It’s uplifting and intense enough to hold up to scenting a room superbly!
The white clay mixed with sea blue on this stunning bowl makes us feel like we’re looking down at the sea, even though we’re snug and warm at home.
This candle burns up to Burns 60 hrs and measures 5in x 5in x 4in.
Northern Lights Candles also has a lovely trio of holiday scen–tric fragrances in cheerful, 5 oz. jewel-toned jars ($15.99 each) inspired by holiday cocktails.
Our editor’s sample in Cranberry Mimosa features a beautiful bright red glass votive with a tart cranberry scent.
The jar (3″ x 3″ x 4″) is topped by a white “frosted” cork top so festive for a centerpiece (surround it with real or faux pine boughs, baubles, and other holiday trimmings).
Choose from Cranberry Mimosa, Mistletoe Martini, or Vanilla Cognac.
These affordable and completely gift-able candles can burn up to 35 hours.
