A Lovely Minty Candle, Kringle Style!
If you got the chance to read my previous post ( a-special-scented-candle-for-a-special-occasion ) on a candle that my late mother bought me, then you may know that I am a big fan of scented candles and the one candle my mum bought is called "Wild Mint," by The White Company. It is a fairly expensive candle even if they sell a smaller pot at half the price.
Well, this candle is also a mint candle, and it is pretty similar even though it lacks the cool white tea additive. I was really pleased when I discovered this candle scent from Kringle Candle, and their "Fresh Mint" candle forms part of a range from Kringle Candle in their "Spices and Herbs" collection, which also includes "Cinnamon," (another favourite of mine) and "Mulling Spices."
The style of this candle shown however is the rather ingenious "Daylight" candle by Kringle Candle and it either sold in a coloured capsule as shown or a clear one. Unlike their previous company, Kringle Candle only produce white candles for a purer, brighter look when the wick is lit and as you can see, this candle gives off a very bright flame. It is like a rather flat and wide tealight candle by shape, but has the same kind of pricing and burn time as a votive candle by Yankee Candle.
I am a big fan of both companies, even though the Daylight candles are far easier to burn in my home since they come with their own little holders and resealable lid; with a Yankee Candle votive candle, they often need their own glass tumbler, otherwise the votive loses it shape and can dangerously melt down into a blob! The Kringle Daylight candles can be taken any where a lit candle is permitted and it fits in the palm of my hand. In use, the Daylights are also heat insulative and have 6 to 8 handy nodes of plastic on the base that prevents burning a flat surface that they are required to be placed on.
Apart from the lovely spread of natural spearmint and peppermint, Kringle's "Fresh Mint" candle reminds me of my natural collection of aromatherapy oils, and one reason alone to why I recommend their ranges to a lot of my friends. The Daylight candle can only yield strength to last the room that it is placed in though, and for the cost price in the UK at £2-15 to £2-50 dependent on scent ($3-27 to $3-80) Kringle candle Daylights in the U.S cost a little cheaper at $3 a piece/tub. It is a light, fresh but utterly cooling menthol mint fragrance that is very delicate but pleasing all the same and its why I love this scent so much. I also love the "sunshine" effect from the coloured tumblers when the white wax is lit. The clear cups seem to lack the golden "arms" in which the light spreads out, but I don't mind because the fragrance is so beautiful and not fake smelling. Kringle Candle have many different sites worldwide, so they are worthwhile to check out. Thanks for reading. ©Nar2Reviews2015.
