CANDLE CONNOISEUR : ARCHIPELAGO

Recently the lovely people over at Archipelago Botanicals sent me a few candles. Being the candle connoisseur that I am, I excitedly waited by the door for the package to show up - and it did not disappoint.  If you haven't already seen or checked out their amazing and huge line of candles, go do so! With the variety that they sent me, I styled them around my home.


All of their candles are soy, and have amazing burn times, this somewhat deeply scented and moody feeling candle I put in my powder room. The scent wasn't overwhelming which is great for this very small space. However, I will say, I'm not sure I'm a fan of those wooden wicks. My husband thought the slight sound was the greatest thing, but I have heard in the past the most air a candle sucks, the more wax it burns - thoughts?



Copal Santal was my absolute favorite, if I could make it into a perfume and wear it everyday for the rest of my life- I would. Its clean, and warm, and rich, and a little woodsy all at the same [is that possible? I think yes] I put this at my workspace because I spend majority of my day here, and love how amazingly fragrant it is. Thats a big one for me, and this one far surpassed that test!


This little "Ibiza" travel tin was the perfect thing to fit into a small space. I love to have something burning in my closet when I'm getting ready for the day, and this fit so perfectly. Despite it being small, the scent carried. It really would be the perfect thing to travel with because of its size, yet it doesn't  lose any of the qualities of a larger candle.

You guys, I am a crazy person - I have dragged my husband across Paris just in the nick of time to purchase a candle. I love them, I really do. Three things that are important to me are the scent, how well the scent carries, and the packaging. These candles passed all of those tests - not to mention at incredible price points. They really have something for everyone, I think I've got my eye on some of these next, I just can't say no to these pretty white jars :)
