Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had an excellent weekend. It was Homecoming weekend here on campus so my weekend was pretty much nonstop dancing. As fun as it was I did not get through nearly enough of the work I had planned. That means that this week is going to be a killer!
When I have a stressful week I try to make my work and home environment as de-cluttered and relaxing as possible. That means a clean state and lots of calming aromas. I love candles and look forward to starting a new scent and jar. I have been experimenting with candle brands lately and was so excited when The Columbia Fragrance Company offered to send me one as a review!
To be completely honest there are so many candle makers out there that I had not heard of Columbia Fragrance Company. Once I visited their site however I did recognize their logo and products based on the design of the candle.
Columbia Fragrance Co. sells a variety of different scents ranging from kitchen aromas to garden and even music themed scents. My wishlist of scents included: Hawaiian Breeze, Orange Blossom, Pumpkin Chai Tea, Lavender Vanilla, Jack Frost and of course Rosemary & Mint.
I was so pleased when my first choice candle was in stock! I was so excited to smell Columbia Fragrance's Rosemary & Mint. The candle arrived super fast and was very well packaged.
The candle arrived with lots of packaging stuffing and wrapped tightly in brown paper. Columbia Fragrance Co. also sent over instructions on how to correctly burn the candle.
I did not wait long before I burned my Rosemary & Mint Columbia Fragrance candle. For reference I chose a 8 oz size. The color is a blue green mix and the scent is so good! It definitely smells of both mint and rosemary leaves. I find the scent to be calming and fresh without a necessary tie to a season or holiday. This is the kind of candle that truly makes you feel relaxed and I felt that the candle was very scented.
I love the Rosemary & Mint candle and now I can't wait to try some of Columbia Fragrance's other scents. At $12 the price point for the 8 oz is reasonable and in line with other major candle companies. I would definitely recommend a purchase of one of their candles and if the scent sounds good to you try Rosemary & Mint- I love it!
