Don't you just love candles? I certainly do! When you light a candle, the aroma just seems to set the mood! It could be a mood of love, romance or just a very relaxing mood. When I have guests over I just love lighting candles, it makes it so much more cozy! For this review I received one Southern Charm Candle and one Apples & Maple Bourbon Candle! The Southern Charm Candle smells, so unique it's a combination of floral fragrances. It smells so FANTASTIC! The Apple & Maple Bourbon Candle smells just like it's name, it's FABULOUS! An apples aroma, with cinnamon and maple bourbon fragrance. It even has a wooden wick, which I have never seen before. The jars that the candles are in, are just as lovely as the candles! By just reviewing these two candles I want to buy many more! I highly recommend these candles! You'll love them! These candles would make an excellent Mother's Day Gift!
About the Je T'aime Fragrances CandlesTheir candles contain premium quality fragrance oils for scent, all-natural and environmentally-friendly soy wax, and lead free cotton wicks. Je T'aime Fragrances has built a great reputation on the fragrance strength of their candles by incorporating as much fragrance oil as the wax will hold. Each candle is richly scented all the way through to the bottom of the jar. To ensure the highest level of quality and consistency, every candle is poured and packaged by hand, thus appealing to both one's senses of sight and smell.
Je T'aime Fragrances is a soy candle manufacturing company located on the sunny gulf coast of Florida in the city of Largo (the Tampa Bay area between Clearwater and St. Petersburg). Denise Cassaly officially launched the business on May 1, 2004 after spending the previous year developing her product line. Denise has had a passion for fragrance since childhood. It has been her lifelong dream to work with fragrances, and this company is the fulfillment of that dream - thus the name Je T'aime "I Love You" Fragrances.
Denise's mission was to create a luxury line of environmentally friendly, scented soy candles that were developed to high quality standards using only top-quality ingredients throughout their production, with each and every candle being hand poured. She also wanted the candles to appeal to the eye by providing an elegant and sophisticated presentation along with evoking exquisite aromas from the use of fine fragrance. Her line of scented soy candles was originally created offering thirty fragrances to intrigue the senses. Her list of fragrances has now grown to over eighty in several different collections. One result of her passion can be experienced in Je T'aime Fragrances' "Signature Collection", a unique and beautiful collection of fragrances. The creation of these fragrances was a labor of love for Denise. Their Signature Collection of fragrances is one way that Je T'aime Fragrances sets itself apart from other candle manufacturers. The fragrances in their Signature Collection have become adored by many and are consistently their top selling aromas.
In June of 2006, Denise developed a soy-based body massage candle that she named "Massage Romantique". This novel and very sensual candle melts into warm, rich and highly emollient massage oil. The massage candle contains wonderful skin-nourishing ingredients, such as; Shea and Mango butters, and other quality natural oils that leave the skin nourished, moisturized, silky smooth and delicately scented. The success of their Massage Romantique body massage candle has been phenomenal.
Since its inception, their company has grown rapidly, which is mainly attributable to their extra attention to detail and handcrafted artistry. Their process begins by hand pouring each candle and ends when every candle is packaged by hand (including hand-tying each and every satin bow) to ensure that their exacting quality standards are met. They want their products to be well worthy of gift-giving, and feel that the human touch provides the best attention to detail. Today, they continue to enjoy widespread recognition with Je T'aime Fragrances' products being sold around the world. Their initial vision has become reality, and they hope to continue to captivate you with their remarkable fragrances. It's their sincere hope that you will keep on enjoying them as you relax and focus on your hopes and dreams in life. It is a wonderful world! Their company knows about this wonderful world first-hand, it all started with a dream.
About the Southern Charm CandleThe 18oz square footed jar candle that I received for review is the scent of "Southern Charm". This is their #1 best selling fragrance. This fragrance was created by the owner, Denise and is in her Signature Collection of fragrances along with seven others, that are exclusive to Je T'aime Fragrances. They double wick the jar to provide an even burn. When burning the candles, the wicks does require maintenance and should be trimmed once every two hours to provide complete combustion. The following is their description for "Southern Charm": The beauty and splendor of the south come to life with this most tantalizing, feminine and romantic fragrance. This unique creation is made of a combination of four southern floral fragrances and is a tribute to Southern Belles. Denise states that the fragrance is truly exquisite and that it promises romance when the fragrance is released.
About the Apple & Maple Bourbon CandleThe other candle that I received for review was a 13oz Wood Wick Candle that they named La Petite Fireplace and is in the scent of "Apples & Maple Bourbon". Their wood wick candle offers a level of ambiance beyond that of their traditional soy candles that use cotton wicks. The burning wood wick melts the scented soy wax faster and disperse the fragrance into the air quicker. With the wood wick candle, you can hear the soothing sound of the organic wood wick, softly crackling as it burns. This candle allows one to "sizzle" their way to fragrance. The following is their company's scent description for "Apples & Maple Bourbon": This fragrance is FABULOUS! An aroma of fresh, delicious MacIntosh apples sprinkled with cinnamon and covered in a warm maple bourbon sauce. Extremely fragrant and totally scrumptious! The most pleasing fragrances is one that you just won't be able to get enough of!
