February Candle of the Month


Romance is in the air! Since Valentine's Day is just a few days away I wanted to go with an ultra floral scent this month. There is nothing more romantic than weddings and one of my favorite wedding dress designers is Vera Wang (check out our wedding day here) so I looked to her classic Floral Bouquet Candle for inspiration (9.5 oz, $34).
The simple glass jar features her elegant "love knot" signature in silver. The silver plate it sits on was a clearance purchase from Bath and Body Works a few years ago, but I think this may be the first time I have used it.


The description of the scent is "modern and fresh with notes of lily of the valley, gardenia, blossoming damask rose, leafy greens, and watery nuances" which brings back wonderful memories for me because lily of the valley was featured in all of our wedding flowers.
With 60 hours burn time I think we will be feeling the romance all month long!
If you love floral scents this is an extremely fragrant candle! If you are a little sensitive to strong fragrances I would either skip this one or just light it in small intervals since it is subtle when unlit, but really releases scent fast and strong when burning.
What is your favorite floral scent/candle? Any big plans for V-day?

I usually choose candles that smell like cotton or rain or fresh laundry. :-)
