April Scent of the Month: Fresh Cut Tulips

il_570xN.632494161_697a

So it’s April, but we wanted to start a new feature on our blog and introduce one of our scents to you each month! Better late than never, right?

Here is what would have been our scents for the previous months of 2015:

March – Spring Break Themed – Butt Naked

February – Red Hot Cinnamon

January – Hazelnut Coffee

Without further ado…here is April’s scent of the month:

Even though spring seems to be hiding this week, our spring fever is kept alive with our scent of the month, Fresh Cut Tulips.

Fresh Cut Tulips is a delicious, light-hearted spring floral scent that reminds us of a gorgeous, sunny day. For those who are interested, here is the ‘official’ scent description:

 Elegant and diffusive, this soft green floral fragrance blossoms with a bright aldehydic-citrus top note balanced by fresh tulip, muguet, lilac and hyacinth. In the spicy floral center, an intoxicating blend of jasmine, rose, carnation, coriander and hints of herbal. Softwoods complete the base of this fragrance.

The candle comes in a vibrant red, much like the red tulips you may see throughout the season.*

We first tested the scent earlier this year, and couldn’t wait for spring to introduce it into our spring flower line!

Mom and Me Soy Candles & A Winter Wedding

We were so excited when bride Brenna contacted us about candles for her January winter-themed wedding. She had an idea for her table centerpieces; a rustic, wooden holder with pine cones and some of our candles. Brenna selected our eight ounce candles and opted for no scent, and the natural soy wax color; a creamy white.

Here are a couple of pictures of the centerpieces from the wedding. All photo credit goes to LC Photography and Makeup. Used with permission by the bride.
