Have I mentioned I LOVE candles?
When i was contacted by Wendy Migdalia to review her Caribbean Ocean Candle I jumped at the opportunity.
I LOVED how the looked, it comes in a champagne glass (Very unique) wrapped in a clear cover with her sticker on it and bow which makes it perfect for gift giving (I am all for supporting businesses through Etsy VS mall shopping)
The package was sent through USPS arriving in 3-4 days of when she sent it, which is awesome because I know alot of the Etsy sellers have to make items as the orders are placed, so I was very happy with the turnaround time. I choose the Ocean theme because I had done my room decor in it so I wanted to try it in there. I like how the candle smelled, BUT the scent was not powerful enough to carry throughout the room, possibly because of the size of the opening in the champagne glass, i don't know, but the candle would be best as a decor piece or bathroom candle so the scent could carry better in a small place. I loved the over all presentation of the candle and if i got one as a gift I would probably tell the receiver it's to be used in the bathroom while relaxing in the tub. I also received a small bag of potpourri which I placed in my closet and it smells great, when I asked Wendy Migdalia about the potpourri she said she always includes a small gift in her packages (Yay :-) who doesn't love free things!)
The candle I choose had a burn time of about 8 hours, once lit you will want to let it burn out unless you have a long lighter to reach in glass to start again. The colors were very beautiful blues, aqua and sky looking. I would have enjoyed this particular candle as more of a decorative piece.
In her shop on Esty wendymigdalia she has other scents to choose from like pina colada, passion fruit and creamy vailla. The prices range from .40 for a sample to $9 for a candle.
Wendy at wendymigdalia has generously offered a sample tea light box of 6 mini tea lights for me to giveaway to one of my readers.
