Mainstays Scented Jar Candle: Cranberry Mandarin
I always have to purchase candles whether I need them or not and every time I go to a store, I head for the candle aisle.
I was recently in our local Wal Mart and was looking around at all the different shapes and sizes of candles and I am always searching for a unique scent and I especially love several blends of aromas together. I spotted this particular candle from Mainstays and took the cover off and the scent bursts out with a delightful fruity blend which is followed by the distinct scent of tangy cranberries, mixed in with a welcoming scent of fresh vine ripened oranges.
I could also detect a subtle hint of a musky vanilla blend along with a delicate hint of what reminds me of a fresh cut red rose. The rose scent is not a sweet smelling aroma as other rose scented candles are and you cannot always smell the rose each time. It is just subtle enough to know it is there.
This is a three wick candle and comes in an eleven and a half ounce glass jar with a glass lid. The candle will approximately burn for sixty -seventy hours. The candle costs $5.99 which I purchased at our local Wal Mart. When the candle is lit, the room is filled up with a wonderful fruity blend aroma. It is very welcoming.
Mainstays Scented Jar Candle: Christmas Pine
This is a three wick candle as well and comes in an eleven and a half ounce glass jar with a glass lid. I always love the scent of pine around Christmas time and found this one during my shopping for gifts this year at our local Wal Mart.
I was anxious to take a whiff of the candle to see if the pine sent was too sweet smelling or if I would be even able to detect that it was in fact a pine scented candle. As I took the lid off, I could immediately detect the delightful and mellow pine scent. The unique smell of fresh cut Christmas tree is noticed right off. I purchased the candle and as soon as I got home, I lit the candle and within just a few minutes, my home had the aroma of a forest full of fresh cut pine trees. The scent is so real, that you think that you are walking down a country road which is covered with pine trees on either side.
There is nothing more welcoming and inviting than the aroma of a real Christmas tree and it is from a candle. This scent is not only great during Christmas time, it will be enjoyable all year round.
They both receive five stars for an outstanding product.
