One of the greatest last-minute gifts you can give to someone is a candle. It’s a simple, classic gift but remains timeless as the years go by. Studies also show that our greatest sense of memory is through smell, making it a very personable present to gift someone. Slatkin & Co is by far my favorite brand of candles. I have been purchasing these candles at Bath & Body Works for almost two years now, and own over ten of them ranging from summer scents like pina colada to fall scents like marshmallow fireside. One of my favorite traditions when I see my mother-in-law is to exchange Slatkin & Co candles, trying to guess which scent the other would love and doesn’t own yet. When I had the opportunity to include these in my Holiday 2011 Gift Guide, I knew I had to include these two lovely holiday-inspired scents. Not only do they smell cozy and warm, but they will burn for what seems like forever. To see photographs, and read what these two candles smell like,
All of the Slatkin & Co candles have three-wicks in them. I personally love that they have three-wicks because I find when a large candle has only one wick, it tends to burn down unevenly, leaving the candle unsightly, and causing a lot of it to go to waste. The three-wicks allow the candle to burn perfectly even all the way down, and give you a gorgeous illumination. I also don’t find that the three-wicks cause the candle to last a shorter amount of time, either, which is a huge plus for me. I typically get around sixty hours (sometimes more) of burn time in a single candle.
These candles also come with a fabulous reflective silver top that has a tight seal all the way around it for locking in the scent of the candle when not in use. I have had candles dry out and crack on me before because their tops weren’t sealed properly.
I am a huge candle person, and I find that lighting candles can really set a mood. It not only illuminates the room and provides that really soft, diffused lighting, but these candles give off major scent. Have you ever purchased a candle only to be disappointed when it smells like nothing? These candles will make your entire home smell delicious within as little as fifteen minutes! I have burned these for as little as thirty minutes and had my husband come home to tell me the whole house smells great.
Candles are a great way to set the mood, relax your mood, or even to give a personal gift to someone. Since studies have shown that smell is our greatest sense tied to memory, giving a certain candle scent can help someone relive an emotion, a feeling, or even help them think of you as they burn it.
Overall: Slatkin & Co candles are some of the best candles around that you can purchase. They come in various sizes and price ranges, with the candles in this post being the large size at 14.5oz. The 14.5oz candles will burn for sixty hours or more, with three-wicks inside each of them. They come in a variety of seasonal and permanent scents that contain the scent notes on the bottom of the candle. Each candle has the highest concentration of fragrance oils in them, giving these fabulous scent payoff when burning.
What are your favorite Slatkin & Co candle scents of all-time? My favorite of all-time has to be “Marshmallow Fireside,” but these two are a close second and third! Leave a comment below.
