What do you think of when you think of romance? Is it a night of wining and dining out on the town with your significant other? Is it a night at home with just you and that special person? Or is a night going through McDonald’s drive thru purchasing dollar burgers without the kids? Everyone’s idea of romance is different.
Watching a lot of television, most programs suggest romance is fancy food, nice music and a perfect picture book setting. One thing I have noticed in all these picture book settings is that they have one prop. That is candles.
I love candles and burn them faithfully. I am a fan of the LED candles that is safer, less messier and easy. But there is still times I love to light up a real candle with a real flame and a nice scent.
I have tried several different brands. I have been excited at finding a scented candle only to bring it home and no scent. I have drooled over the higher end candles that wasn’t exactly in my budget at the time. Can you relate?
I recently was sent a couple candles to review. I was all excited to see these. When they came in I knew they would be something special. These candles are from Ocotillosouthwest.
The candles they sent me are available on Amazon. It was a 2 scented candle pack of Romantic candles. The 2 candles came in a nice gift worthy box. Inside I found 2 small, Mason Jar, type of candles. Not only was the two candles in there, but also a wick dipper. This helps keep the wick in great shape and where it needs to be so you can use your candles to the fullest. This is the first time I ever received one of these. To me, a company that would go this extra step- shows me they are thinking about their customers happiness.
Another thing I loved about the candles other then the rustic looking jars they came in, was the little metal heart wrapped around the lid of each candle.
Taking the lid off of each jar, I instantly smelled a wonderful fragrance. The red candle was a romantic rose. It smelled very comparable to fresh cut roses. The pink candle was a Raspberry chocolate. This smelled so good, they almost smelled as good as the gasoline scented candle that my great uncle got me from Scotland!! If you have a sweet tooth you may appreciate this one!
These 8 oz jars will last anywhere from 80-90 hours combined.
While these would be the perfect item to have for a anniversary a romantic evening, a wedding gift, home warming, Easter or any other holiday…. I agree with the company when it says:
Any day is a good day for candles!
