Temper + Lace | Loft + Spell

I know you guys are probably tired of hearing about Temper + Lace but I promise I am not going to stop sharing these amazing candles any time soon. Today, I want to share my two favourite scents, yeah I said it. That’s a pretty big statement. It is a big commitment to say “out of all the incredible scents Temper + Lace has ever released, these two are my favourites”.

I know I’ve had a lot of favourites. Noel in the 2019 holiday collection was fantastic, Walk in The Woods from Spring 2019 was incredible, Creme from her signature line is a delicious classic. But Loft + Spell; they are the ones.

The first time she released Spell, I was skeptical. I wasn’t sure what to think when I saw black pepper on the label. Would I LIKE the smell of black pepper? But I honestly don’t know if I can even smell the black pepper. This blend of cardamom, black pepper and whipped cream is a creamy bit of deliciousness with a slight spice. It’s warm and cozy but not sweet.

Loft is a blend of coffee, hazelnut and cream. It’s another warm and cozy scent without being overly sweet. It’s comforting and welcoming. I’m not usually a big fan of the smell of hazelnut but it is not over powering in this. I also don’t find the coffee over powering at all. They are just beautifully blended to compliment the cream.

I also love that neither of these scents can really be labelled as traditionally masculine or feminine. I think either of these scents would make a fantastic gift because I really feel like they are such beautiful scents, anyone would like them.

Temper + Lace | Holiday 2019

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hanukah. Whatever you celebrate, we can all agree that a cozy candle warms the home during the holidays.

Temper + Lace has released a fantastic line of Holiday/Winter candles for 2019.

Fireside features warm woods, vanilla and raspberry. Really warm vanilla with a sweet raspberry undertone.

Nutcracker is plum, currant and sugar. This one is a very sweet and fruity scent so if you prefer something fruity this one is definitely for you. It reminds me of something I can’t quite put my finger on but it’s a deliciously fruity dose of Christmas.

Noel is mulberry, cranberries and spice. If you are familiar with Temper + Lace you might remember a cranberries and spice scent from Christmas 2018. This one is pretty different from last years cranberries + spice. Last year’s scent was very sweet, like a cranberry cider. This one has a lot more of a spicy cinnamon smell.

Sleigh is evergreen and musk. I was a little skeptical of this one because when you see the word “musk” you never really know what that might mean. This candle is actually so, so nice. It is super fresh, a little more masculine. Will leave your home smelling like a Christmas tree farm.

She also has a few winter scents that will be available for you to enjoy all season long.

Creme – marshmallow, honey, toasted almond
Maple Sugar – maple, butter
Toasty – coconut milk, brown sugar, nutmeg
Tobacco – orange, amber, tobacco

Temper + Lace candles are made with soy wax and feature wood wicks. Each candle is either scented with essential oils or paraben and phthalate free fragrance oil for a completely non toxic burn. They have a 70+ hour burn time. Save 10% on your order from Temper + Lace with the code kelsey10.

Temper + Lace | Valentine’s Day Collection 2019

Temper + Lace has released a collection of three Valentine’s Day candles for 2019. These candles are scented with fragrance oil that is phthalate and paraben free. They also feature a super cute new label design and a new cherry wood wick which is smaller than their previous wick to help candles burn longer.

Afterglow

If you had the chance to smell Love Actually from the winter 2018 collection, you might find this one to be slightly similar! It features juicy pomegranate and the sweet, creamy undertones of marshmallow. It is very reminiscent of cotton candy, especially when burning. This is the scent that I was most curious about, and I absolutely love it! This is a super playful fragrance; if you like sweet scents, this is the one for you!

Ambiance

Vanilla and Sandalwood go together like PB&J. This candle is warm, inviting and grounding for a truly comforting scent. This scent is super universal, a real classic; there’s no guessing when it comes to this blend of fragrances. I definitely found that the scent in this one wasn’t as strong as the other two in the collection before I lit it and after lighting it was still more subtle but it is a really beautiful, elegant and, I really can’t over use this word, classic fragrance.

Allure

Allure is a more classically masculine scent. This one is definitely more of a perfumey colonge smell with warm, honey-like amber and spicy nutmeg and cloves. It’s also almost a little bit floral. I wasn’t hella crazy about this one off the bat but I have learned that these candles may not always be as they first appear; sometimes they can smell totally different when you burn them! This candle is HEAVENLY when burning. The amber really shines with the candle is burning and it is such a luxurious scent; it made my whole house smell so lavish. If you’re not sure about this scent, I would recommend giving it a shot anyway because it truly is magnificent.

Temper + Lace Candles Volume II

Hey Guys! It’s been quite a while since I shared the magic of Temper + Lace candles with you and I wanted to update you with some new scents that I have tried since my initial post, which you can see here.

So first up is a limited edition candle that you can’t get anymore but I wanted to share it anyway just in case it ever comes back! Wanderlust is scented exclusively with essential oils and it contains patchouli, neroli, rosemary, lavender and geranium. It’s an earthy, musty floral scent.

Similar to Wanderlust is one of her new candles she released this fall; Moon Magic. This one is lavender, bergamot, vetiver and patchouli. It’s another earthy, musty, floral scent. Super relaxing and cozy. The floral scent in this one isn’t quite as strong as it is in Wanderlust but you definitely smell the Lavender and the bergamot adds a really nice warmth.

Another release she did this fall was Autumn which is scented with high grade fragrance oils; it’s phthalate and paraben free. It smells like an apple pie! It’s so yummy; warm and cozy. Heavy on the cinnamon but when you light it the scent disperses beautifully.

Replenish + Renew + Reset is her latest charity candle; it’s in support of the Reset Society of Calgary. The Reset society helps women leave lives of sexual exploitation so whether they are victims of sex trafficking or they were former sex workers; Reset helps them transition out of that life by helping them with housing, school, getting jobs etc. This candle is similar to Pomona in the citrusy sort of way but it also contains lemongrass. It’s scented with lemongrass, white grapefruit and mandarin essential oils; super uplifting and also relaxing.

Wild Orange + Cedarwood is from her core collection. It’s heavy on the woodsy cedarwood scent and has a light splash of citrus. This scent is warm, grounding and also uplifting. Orange and Cedarwood is one of my favourite parings.

Maple Sugar is another fall candle. It’s a really warm and sweet candle scented with fragrance oils. It’s a really light maple scent with warm vanilla like a maple sugar cookie. It comes off as a very strong scent but when it’s lit it really disperses throughout your home so beautifully. It is such a cozy scent that I will for sure be burning well into winter.

I highly recommend Temper + Lace for quality candles that are non toxic. I absolutely love the wood wick and the overall experience of burning these candles; they really create such a beautiful ambiance and fill your home with fragrance.

You can order online from the Temper + Lace website pay only five dollars shipping all across Canada.

Temper + Lace Candles Volume I

Temper + Lace candles are made in High River, Alberta using 100% soy wax,  scented exclusively with essential oils and made with all natural ingredients. No synthetic dyes or fragrances.  These candles are super clean burning and the company prides themselves on being Eco-friendly. Read more about their products on their website.  These candles are available all over Western Canada in stores and can be ordered off their website. All of their retail locations are available on their website. You can really tell that each candle and each product is made and packaged with such love and care.

I picked up 3 of these candles and I wanted to share these scents with you.

The first scent is Pomona which includes lemon, lime, white grapefuit and blood orange. I love citrus scents, they are so uplifting and make my home smell so clean and fresh which is so important when you have as many animals as I do. I don’t find the scent is over powering at all; there is a really nice balance and all scents compliment each other beautifully, filling your whole home with goodness.

POMONA

Breathe is scented with eucalyptus oil. Eucalyptus is so awesome so when you are congested, it will really open up your airways and let you breathe fresh and easy again. I love this scent so much, it is so refreshing and spa like.

BREATHE

The last scent I have is Coconut + Lime. This one is definitely a sour lime smell. It is nice, but I do wish that you could smell the coconut more. This one smells very strongly when it is unlit but do not let that deter you in any way cause once it is lit in a big space and the scent disperses it is such a nice scent and it really fills your whole home.

COCONUT LIME

These are wood wick candles. If you have never used a wood wick candle it can be strange at first. These were my first wood wick candles. They will not stay lit to begin with, but if you just keep trying it will take and then you’ll be good to go. Further instructions on how to use the wood wick are also available on their website. I just love the crackling sound of the wood wicks and I am so into these candles right now.
