Welcome back for Week 3 of Throwback Thursday! It’s right about now that I realise what I’ve committed myself to, but it’s now at the point of no turning back. So strap in, buckle up and let's go for a wild ride down memory lane. This week we’re taking a look at 3 of our past Sweet/Fruity candles. One of my personal favs, one that I didn’t know existed and one that’s a timeless classic.
We’ll start off Week 3 with the earliest candle we’ll be looking at this week, Strawberry Champagne. This one was first released in February of 2018.
Described as “This bubble fragrance is reminiscent of the romantic drink, a crisp and effervescent Champagne cocktail filled with luscious red and black berries to bring out the full-bodied flavour. We loved the black lace pattern, weaving its way mysteriously around the glass container.”
Its subtle romantic connotations was almost a nod to Valentine's Day without being too over the top.
Next up on the list we have August of 2019, which featured the star of the show - Sunshine.
WOW! I like to think I know each and every candle that we’ve made at Club Candle, even the ones that were made before my time here. I have a lot of fun looking back through our old candles, whether it be the ones we keep on our shelf or ones that only live on through documents on the computer.
But, today I've been stumped. I don’t think I've ever seen the candle Sunshine before. I am absolutely in love with it, and I think the name sums it up so well. How can you look at that gorgeous yellow jar and think of anything except happiness and sunshine?
I’ve had to include a few different photos of this one just to show off its stunning colour and the fabulous lid it came with. This one reminds me of the Lemon Sherbet lollies I used to have all the time as a kid.
“If the sunshine had a scent, this would be it. With all the perfect fruitiness of mandarin, peach, apricot and cranberry.”
Last but not least, this week we have our latest Halloween candle, which arrived in October of 2021.
We try to stay away from holiday themed candles, knowing that not every person celebrates every holiday, and we also know how much it sucks to have a themed candle in your house once the holiday is over. (I’m looking at you, Christmas themed candles). It’s a nice way to spread the holiday cheer, but it's always awkward having anything Santa Claus themed left in the house by January.
With Treat we tried to have a nice reference to Halloween without going too over the top, which I think we did quite nicely.
Originally we had the fragrance picked out, and had poured a candle in the red jar with plain white wax. It looked good, but we knew it could look even better. It’s not often we choose to do a coloured candle. Although they look good, they are often more work than they're worth. Any time you make a candle using colour there is additional testing that needs to be done, and not to mention the mess that gets caused. You think food dye is bad and stains things? Try using a dye that's intended purpose is staining things and the colour never coming out. Also, white wax is a breeze to clean up off surfaces if any accidents happen, coloured wax is a nightmare and stains everything in sight. Candle colour reminds me of glitter, if you even look at it, you’ll be finding it in places you didn’t even know existed for the next 6 months.
In the end, I think this one turned out to be quite a treat (pun intended) and I always love the months we are able to give out some extra goodies in the box.
