Candles....{a giveaway}

I'm sure it comes as no surprise to you that my house doesn't always smell the greatest.  I have lofty goals of having my house smell like fresh baked cookies or apple pie, but more often than not it smells, well, not so pretty.

Obviously, there are a few ways I can remedy this situation--candles, sprays, or plug-ins.  Frankly, sprays gag me.  Always have, always will.  They kind of remind me of when my brother used to spray too much of that "boys only" body spray to cover up the "boys only B.O." that clung mercilessly to him and everything that belonged to him.  You know how they all kind of smelled the same?  Hmmm, see why I'm adverse to sprays?

Plug-ins bug me because they use electricity and I don't really want to use my electricity just to make my house smell nice.

Candles, however, candles are my weak spot.  I've always loved candles and my dad, fireman that he was, rarely let me burn candles as a teenager.  Hence, I'm making up for it now by burning candles  Okay, I'm just kidding with that because four kids and a house full of fire hazards don't really mix.  That's the number one reason I love Village Candles...I can burn one, just one candle on my kitchen stove and I can smell it everywhere in the house.  Yes, even upstairs in the bathroom I can smell my candle, but not in an overpowering way, just in a I-don't-smell-all-the-other-nasty-stuff sort of way.

Recently, the folks from Village Candle sent me one of their brand spankin' new candles to review and they even gave me the privilege of giving one away to one of my readers....sweet!

I'll admit, a first I was extremely skeptical about the Sweet Buttercream scent.  I'm not a big floral person and I prefer the smell of baked good as opposed to florals, but buttercream?  I wasn't sure it would be detectable through the house.  I was pleasantly surprised.  This subtle scent lingered in the house and added a layer of warmth to the dwelling.  I loved it.  Another plus is the two-wicks in the candle that allow it to burn down evenly.  That means no pushing or carving away at the wax.  It also means, no leftover wax!
