:: A Village Candle Review & Giveaway ::

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Fun news! I am sharing a candle review & a GIVEAWAY with you today! So exciting!

Village Candle has given me the honor to review a candle from their new Radiance line. Let me tell you a little bit about this beautiful new line of candles. (quoting from their website) Each jar features a crackling wood wick, sophisticated fragrances and a full wrap label with Lumiglow technology that brings the stunning artwork to life and ignites the senses.

There are many scents to choose from in this new line. I can assure that you will find one or more to suit your fragrance taste!

The scent that I reviewed is Mandarin Sunflower. The gorgeous label was a WOW right out of the box! The jar is sleek & classy. I couldn’t wait to take the lid off for my first whiff of it “cold”.

It smelled fruity & floral, so fresh!

Take a look at the hang tag that came attached to the top of the jar.  I just love this little detail.

It was pretty just sitting out on my counter.

Here is a photo of the wood wick. This is my first wood wick candle, I couldn’t wait to try it out!

Time to light it!

Like all other Village scented candles it burns so clean & even.

The wax pool on a Village Candle is like no other candle I have ever seen. Clean & clear on the sides of the jar as it burns.

Listen to it crackle! It is such a soothing sound. This effect only adds to the already wonderful ambience that the Radiance candle creates.

The fragrance as described on the Village Candle website is a captivating blend of grapefruit, bergamot blended with juicy mandarin and red poppies and fresh cedar to complete this delightful Mediterranean escape.

It is all that and then some! It is fruity, floral , fresh & wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed it! It burned down evenly & had a great throw. My kitchen, living room & beyond smelled amazing!

Earlier I mentioned the Lumiglow technology. Once the candle burns down the flame begins to illuminate the artwork on the label! It truly is stunning!

The wood wick is so unique! I am happy to report that my first wood wick experience was a pleasure! I will definitely be purchasing other scents in the Radiance line!

Thank you to the wonderful people at Village Candle for this opportunity! And for allowing me to give away two of their lovely candles to two of my lucky followers.
