Cool Shop! #2 for November is SALT CITY CANDLE AUSTRALIA...
I didn't have to think twice when Corinne from Salt City Candle emailed me asking if she could be a Cool Shop! on my blog. I've been a big fan of Salt City Candles for many years and my supply had recently run out so I was excited to choose a few more to keep me going!Salt City Candles look and smell amazing. There is a fragrant to suit everyone - I am especially partial to the fruit fragrances - they are so fresh and invigorating. The fragrances are so intense that a soft aroma will spread in the room if you just leave the lid off the jar! I leave a couple of opened candles by my front door and people always comment on the delicious smell that greets them!
Salt City Candles make a beautiful decoration to any home. The colours are beautiful and the shape of the jars are stunning. Once your candle has burned out you can use the jars to store anything from food to craft supplies! Although, you will be waiting awhile for your candle to burn down as the largest candle (26oz) burns for 120-140 hours!
As well as looking and smelling fantastic, Salt City Candles are made using a unique triple blend of highly refined paraffin and soy waxes which are of food-grade quality, resulting in a much cleaner burn. They also use zinc core wicks that are 100% lead free.
Ooh, I wish there was a scratch 'n sniff button on the computer so I could share some of my favourite fragrances with you! I definitely recommend the fruity fragrances though, they aren't too sweet or too spicy and really fill your home with a lovely fresh aroma.
I think my absolute favourite fragrance is Cucumber Melon. It is the kind of fragrance that I wouldn't pick from it's name alone - I don't think "cucumber" would really stand out to me as a yummy scent! But mixed with honeydew, cantaloupe and sweet melon it truly is divine and a candle that I could burn all day long.
Lime Twist is another one of my all time favourite fragrances...mmm, it has a really sweet citrusy smell and gives a nice summery feel to the room.
I decided to try a fragrance I hadn't smelt before and couldn't resist the name...Spring Clean. You know how you walk into someone familiar's house and can smell their washing powder? Maybe it is just me, but I associate all of my aunty and uncle's homes with the washing powder that they used as we were growing up! Well, Spring Clean reminds me just of that. It really is like crisp, clean sheets on your bed and a vase of freshly cut flowers sitting on the night stand. Also great to pull out if you want your house to smell like you have had a big clean up...maybe my visitors won't notice the mess?!!If you are looking for a Christmas present for that hard-to-buy for friend, sister, mother-in-law...then you can't go wrong with a Salt City Candle.
