For a candle lover, Fall is the best time of the year. With the weather starting to cool off, there is nothing better than filling your house with the comforting scents of the season at the strike of a match. The pungent aroma of spices, the warmth of cashmere, the smoothness of amber and the earthiness of iris will take your home life to the next olfactory level and create the perfect haven for cozy retreats with family and friends:
It just wouldn't be fall without the warm and pungent scent of spices. Cinnamon, clove buds, and Canadian fir tree are scents synonymous with the chilly season that are guaranteed to make your home smell like fall. In our Gilded Spices Candle, they're introduced by a zesty verbena accord that eventually vanishes into an intense base of golden pomander and warm musk. It's the perfect way to kick start the season on the right foot.
One of the most interesting perfume ingredients, iris is anything but ordinary. Woodsy and airy, light and earthy, iris has a tender floral aroma that never crosses into full flowery territory. Iris tames the intensity of warm and creamy woods, such as French wood, and adds creaminess and smoothness to the sharper aroma of lavender. Blended together in our Spa Iris Candle, these notes create the perfect cozy atmosphere for a relaxing fall afternoon.
Fall calls for the soft and inviting embrace of a luxurious cashmere sweater to keep you warm during those crisp short days and chilly longer nights. Our Golden Teak wood is a like a creamy cashmere sweater but in candle form. Its warm heart of soft cashmere, golden amber and Spanish sage is both soft and comforting and leads to the sensual embrace of the smooth musky vanilla base. Its sparkling verbena opening is a delightful surprise for the nose too.
'Tis the season to pick apples and red currents and turn them into delicious homemade pies. We've added a twist to the recipe and used their mouthwatering crispness to introduce a succulent blend of agave and water lily that eventually melts into a sensual accord of blonde woods enriched by the warmth of musk and the earthiness of oak moss. The Succulent Agave And Oak moss candle is just guaranteed to make you fall in love with the season all over again.
Not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet? Our Beach Driftwood candle is just the right scent you need to make a smooth transition from carefree summer to chilly autumn. It hits all the warm and cozy notes, from earthy green leaves to heady jasmine and dry exotic woods, but spices them up with a spritz of salty ocean air to take you back to those lazy days spent relaxing at the beach. The best of both worlds!
As a women business owner I’m well aware of the struggles women face in the workplace or while running their own business. The demands that society places on us can be daunting, to say the least. I’ve met some incredible women over the years, had mentors that were very successful, not only in business but in other aspects of life as well. What I’ve noticed about the most successful women I know is that they have a common thread that seems to run through them all. I define it as balance.
They have a balanced approach to life even when faced with challenges, major health issues such as breast cancer or other obstacles. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, here at Laguna Candles we've created our new, big “Why” and we call it “Enlightened Living”. As our business continues to grow and we embrace the concept of becoming a global brand, I've come to realize that to be enlightened is a true anchor point for me and my company.
To be enlightened means to be healthy, balanced, thoughtful, and considerate of others. It also means being patient, humble, loving & kind. Especially when the world says you should be otherwise. Find time to breathe, to walk, to meditate, travel and enjoy your love ones while you can. I guarantee the world and all its challenges will wait.
