Handcrafted Candles for Every Occasion

 

Handcrafted Candles for Every Occasion_Pink Disco and MinimalistBeauty Brite Disclosure 

One of the simplest ways to update your décor is with candles. They can transform a room with their warm glow, aromatic throw, or elegant packaging. For me, candles let me express my style and help create the ideal mood, or feel, of every room in my home. This time of year, I’m creating a myriad of sensory experiences with the handcrafted candles of Brooklyn Candle Studio.

This independent studio, located in Brooklyn, New York, was founded by in 2013 by designer Tamara Mayne. Her obsession with aromatherapy and candlemaking extends beyond creating beautifully designed candles. It’s also about being eco-friendly. Each handcrafted candle from Brooklyn Candle Studio is made from 100% soy wax with lead-free cotton wicks primed with vegetable-based wax. In addition, each every candle is vegan and free of preservatives, petroleum, and animal testing.

Handcrafted Candles – Minimalist

While I like to burn candles all year long, my favorite time of year to do so is in the fall. There’s nothing like taking a hot bath or cozying up under a blanket while warm, toasty scents fill the air. You can imagine my excitement when Brooklyn Candle Studio offered me to send me some of their seasonal offerings.

I received Apple Cider and Fern + Moss from their Minimalist Collection. Packaged in simple glass jars, with brushed gold lids, their Minimalist Candles look perfect in every room of the house, from the kitchen to the bedroom.

Apple Cider is the epitome of fall. The natural cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, orange, and cedarwood essential oils blend perfectly with the top notes of crisp apple. There’s nothing artificial about this candle either. It’s has a nice, rich throw, without being too sweet or overpowering.

The best way I can describe Fern + Moss is that of a yummy, outdoorsman. In a good way of course. It’s blend of natural sage, lavender, orange, spruce, and pine are heavenly. I can’t get enough of this candle, even though when I first smelled it, I wasn’t sure it was for me. I thought it would turn my home into a den of cheap cologne. Quite the contrary. It has the perfect, woodsy, musky throw.

Now if both handcrafted candles could magically bring me a hot, man carrying warm mugs full of whiskey infused cider…ah, a girl can dream.

 

Brooklyn Candle Studio – Pink Disco

In addition to the Minimalist Collection, I was also drawn to the Brooklyn Candle Studio Limited Edition Pink Disco Collection. This unique holiday collection was inspired by cocktail party season, and features three handcrafted candles in Prosecco, Fireplace, and Cypress. Each candle is hand-poured into a frosted, blush colored jar and then stamped with a gold foil accent.

As a fan of sweet libations, I decided to order Prosecco. Nothing says holiday, cocktail party like a flute of Prosecco. Not only is the candle gorgeous to look at, but it also has a lovely throw. With notes of red berries, wild roses and white musk, Prosecco is the ideal candle for starting your evening, or cocktail party, off on the right note.

Candles for Every Occasion

What I like most about these handcrafted candles is the divine scent they leave long after I’ve extinguished their warm glow. It’s always a treat to walk into the room the next day and still smell their throw. I look forward to burning these Brooklyn Candle Studio gems all season long, as well as picking up some more for myself and for gifts.

Can I be completely honest with you? Most days, motherhood doesn’t make me feel glamorous. It’s a rewarding job, but it can leave me feeling very tired at the end of the day. You will usually find me in my typical “uniform” around the house of a ponytail, yoga pants, and a cotton t-shirt. There are meals to cook, jobs to work, rooms to clean, and a never ending pile of laundry to do.
