I am head over heels in love with this company. Most specifically, I am in love with their Bourbon Vanilla Candle. There is nothing like it. It’s so warm and delicious, and it fills up any given space with fragrance, before you even light it!
I found these candles while digging through a store in my old Hollywood neighborhood. It’s one of those luxury ‘general stores’ that have a little bit of everything (for more than a little bit of money). The candles were stashed in the back of the store. Quite honestly, had I not had a little browsing time on my hands, I might have completely missed them.
Madasgascar vanilla beans laced with a hint of malt whiskey, musk and amber.
As soon as I lifted the lid on the tester jar of Bourbon Vanilla, I was sold. It smelled so rich and complete. I immediately bought it and took it home to light it. The fragrance filled up half the house! I put it in the living room and opened every door… and I swear the fragrance traveled to every corner. It was amazing. I was almost sad to put it out at the end of the night.
The next day, I went back and bought up the rest of their Bourbon Vanilla stock. I must have this candle… forever. I also picked up the ‘Orange’ fragrance from this company, but I have to tell you that it doesn’t hold a candle (see what I did there?) to Bourbon Vanilla. I’ve never smelled a Vanilla candle like this. And I’m not even a big Vanilla fan.
The good news is, my local store just ordered more stock. The company is based in Decatur, Georgia… and I do believe you can order from them directly. So if I ever need a Bourbon Vanilla fix and I can’t find it at that little store, I’ll have some options.
I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be burning this candle for more than a little while.
