Every day I take some time to savor small moments…little things that just make me feel good, like a clean kitchen in the evening with low lights and a candle softly flickering. Ahhhh. Lately I have been burning one of the new Soap & Paper Factory candles from their Farmacie Candle Collection ($25).
The Farmacie Candle Collection includes three different scented soy candles that are housed in shabby chic cream-colored apothecary jars. The scents are all botanical, based on herbs and flowers that are used in traditional medicine.
Marigold Calendula: This light and feminine scent blends together airy cyclamen, a delicate flower known for its elegant upswept petals, with peony for a soft, romantic fragrance.
Lavender Clary Sage: Calming lavender takes center stage in this bright, refreshing fragrance. The scent blends the citrusy notes of bergamot with crisp clary sage for an earthy scent.
Red Rose Saffron: This sweet fragrance showcases the timeless scent of red rose, accenting it classic floral tones with hints of spicy saffron and creamy tonka bean.
My candle is in the Marigold Calendula scent. I tend to prefer foody scents in the kitchen, so I am surprised how much I love this. It’s a soft floral with warm, musky notes thanks to the calendula. It makes for a very cozy smelling room and the jar is beautiful. Once the candle is gone I plan to re-purpose the jar as a q-tip and cotton ball holder in my bathroom.
I love Soap and Paper Factory products and the Farmacie Candle Collection is a winner. I plan to buy the Lavender Clary Sage for my kitchen once I am finished with the Marigold Calendula so I can continue to have my clean kitchen evening moments! – Lisa
