Village Candle Review & GIVEAWAY 2 Winners!

I recently received the Lemon Pound Cake Candle from Village Candle to review. Let me start off by saying, if you knew what I know about the smell of this candle, you'd wish your screen was scratch`n`sniff.




Here's what Village Candle's philosophy is:

As you know, being a mom is a full-time job. They’re the caretaker, the meal maker and advice giver. They make bumps and scratches all better with one kiss, and they magically make those monsters disappear from under any bed and closet. Moms truly are modern day super heroes! Every now and then, deserving super moms of the world need a break to just sit back and enjoy a moment of peace. Having the glow and flicker of a scented candle nearby only adds to the tranquility. With the scent of a Village Candle® pervading the room, this moment can be one of pure relaxation that also heightens and tingles the senses.

Village Candle’s mission is to be the leading manufacturer in the home fragrance industry by offering premium quality products that exceed their customers' expectations. Whether they prefer the fresh scent of Balsam Fir or the mouth-watering aroma of Brownie Delight, Village Candle’s scented candles enhance the ambiance of any room. What makes these candles so amazing is that their fragrances last much longer than that initial whiff. Their fragrances fill the room but do not overpower. Village Candle® truly has found the perfect balance.

My Review

If I could, I'd start off with a challenge for you and it would be this...head to your local bakery and smell a lemon pound cake. Ok, maybe buying it should be your first step. After you smell that lemon cake, you will know how divinely yummy smelling the Village Candle® Lemon Pound Cake is. I kid you not, this smells like the real deal.

The Village Candle® comes with 2 wicks to make the burning last longer since they are smaller and they burn more efficiently. To top it off, the dual wicks help the scented candles be more noticeable. The fragrance from this candle makes my home smell delicious.






Some of the other fragrances I'd love to try out: Gardenia, Pure Linen, and Waterfall. Some fragrances I'd like to see created: Plumeria and Fresh Rain. The following photos are a few of the examples from their site: Essence of Hope (A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this product are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation), Sweet Buttercream, Water Lily, and Magnolia.
