Hey guys! Thanks for reading. Today I’ve got a couple more Temper + Lace candles to share with you! If you haven’t read about Temper + Lace on my blog before I’ll start by introducing the brand. Temper + Lace offers amazing, hand poured, soy candles with wood wicks and the candles are completely non toxic. You can also pick up essential oil blends and all natural bath bombs. This is a female run business out of High River, Alberta and these candles are available online and in stores across western Canada!
First up is Luna which was actually released with the fall line so I’m not sure how many more are available but if you love fruity scents and you have the chance to grab this one it’s definitely a good one! This one is strong on the pineapple; it also has peach and orange. It’s a tropical vacation in a candle.
Vanilla Bourbon is one of the winter scents. It’s a super warm vanilla with just a touch of oaky bourbon and cedarwood which creates a super cozy scent. I initially thought I got a hint of citrus because there was something I couldn’t quite put my finger on. The best description I could give is a warm vanilla and caramel with woodsy undertone. The bourbon is far more noticeable while burning and the warm vanilla will really fill your home. After the candle was used, the bourbon smell was a lot more noticeable when the candle was unlit.
Hot Cocoa is also a seasonal scent for winter. This isn’t an overly sweet chocolate smell which I really like. A warm vanilla is super prominent. Once it’s burning, you do smell the chocolate a significant amount more. Like with the Vanilla Bourbon, the chocolate in this candle was a lot more noticeable when the candle was unlit after it was burned for a while. The hot cocoa candle from Bath and Body Works was always one of my favourites so I love being able to enjoy that smell without all the toxins.
Love Actually is another candle from the winter collection. Fun Fact: I actually helped come up with the name for this one. Love Actually is sugar dipped berries and cotton candy which results in super sweet raspberry scent. It smells quite strong initially which some people may find off putting but the scent really disperses nicely when lit. It reminds me of the Black Raspberry and Vanilla body products from Bath and Body Works or the sweet Vera Wang perfumes I used to wear.
Cranberries + Spice is also from the 2018 Winter collection. If you like apple cider and cranberries, this is the candle for you. It has the warm, spicy and sweet smell of apple cider with the tart cranberries. This is such a cozy candle perfect for Christmas. After it was released I had heard everyone say this one is absolutely amazing and it definitely lives up to the hype!
Luna, Vanilla Bourbon, Hot Cocoa, Love Actually and Cranberries + Spice are all scented with high grade fragrance oils but you can rest assured they are phthalate and paraben free. An added little FYI, the fragrance oil candles do burn a little faster than her core collection of essential oil scented candles.
Stef was also kind enough to send me the Pomona essential oil blend which is the same oils as the Pomona candle but as an oil blend for use in your diffuser. The Temper + Lace oils are 100% pure oils. The Pomona candle is one of my favourites so this amazing blend as a diffuser oil is perfect for me to use at work. Pomona is white grapefruit, lemon, lime and blood orange making it the perfect scent for when you need a little ‘pick me up’.
I can’t say enough nice things about Temper + Lace. I have never had a bad experience with the products so I highly recommend you check out her website to order online or find a stockist near you.
