WE LIKE TO MIX IT UP
By Ashli Stockton
We like to mix it up around here, and that goes for our candles too. Sure it’s nice to burn different candles for different moods or seasons. For example, I tend to burn 11:11 at night or when I’m having people over for an intimate dinner party. It’s sophisticated, a little sexy, it’s a vibe. For summer I’m drawn to Coconut or Tanlines, and on a fresh spring day I go for Morning. You get the idea, nothing groundbreaking right? However, sometimes I like to get a little wild, a little more creative - when one mood or vibe just won’t do - I like to really mix things up. So, I’m going to share some of my favorite candle combinations with you, why I like them, how they make me feel and the mood I’m going for.
WHEN YOU LIVE IN A STUDIO APARTMENT BUT WANT TO FEEL LIKE YOU’RE LIVING THAT PENTHOUSE LIFE
It doesn’t get chicer or more expensive smelling than combining our RICH candle with 11:11. The cashmere smokiness of RICH mixed with the deep dark figgy-ness of 11:11 will make you want to shop the more expensive section of H&M like it’s nothing.
WHEN YOU’RE NOT A MORNING PERSON BUT YOU’RE TRYING TO BE
Getting out of bed in the morning is never a walk in the park, but wake up to the scents of MORNING and BLK VELVET and things might get a little easier. The freshness of MORNING mixed with the coffee-like hot and bitter notes of BLK VELVET will transform your morning mood.
WHEN YOU CAN’T AFFORD THAT SUMMER VACATION BUT WANT TO FEEL LIKE YOUR TOES ARE IN THE SAND SIPPING A RUM & COKE
No one has the time or luxury to lounge around on a beach whenever they please, but the combination of TANLINES and COCONUT can help you escape into your vacation dreams. The sweet and warm scent of COCONUT mixed with the slight smell of sunscreen in TANLINES will transport you to the tropical island vacay you deserve.
WHEN YOU WANT TO SHOVE AN ENTIRE SHEETCAKE IN YOUR MOUTH BUT YOU’RE KETO RIGHT NOW
Who doesn’t like cake (Or at least the smell of it)? Whether you have a little sweet tooth or a reason to celebrate, the combination of PINK GOLD and HBD is the perfect little treat. There’s nothing better than drowning yourself in PINK GOLD’s sweet scents of almond along with HBD’s delicious notes of buttercream.
WHEN YOU’RE IN THE MOOD, YOU KNOW THEMOOD MOOD
KITTYROSE + LOVERBOY
Does anyone ever actually know what to do to get in the mood mood? Because we sure didn’t until we discovered this magical duo. LOVERBOY’s name speaks for itself, but for those who haven’t had the chance to smell this baby already, it has soft, musky tones of citrus and wood that’ll really get you thinking of your true love. Combine that with KITTYROSE’s sensual notes of sweet, burnt rose petals and you’re set for a sexy, intimate night in.
