Favorite Candles & A Giveaway

I love candles, don’t we all? A few of my all time favorite candles are…

Henri Bendel- I love the unique scents Henri Bendel offers. These are a little expensive but you can find them at Bath and Body Works on sale from time to time.



Yankee Candle- Yankee is the brand I buy the most often. The prices are reasonable and they always offer specials and coupons. My favorite scent is Butter Cream, it makes the entire house smell delicious.




Trish McEvoy=Love. My friend, Tiffany, introduced me to these candles. I LOVE them! You can find Trish McEvoy Candles at Nordstrom and Niemans. They’re pricy but I’ve found them much cheaper on eBay. I love a deal!


Tyler Candle Company- Not only do these candles have cute names like Diva, Cashmere Elegance, Chateau, French Market, & Homecoming, they smell SO good. Their fragrances are unique and long lasting!


Since I love my blog friends and I’ve won a total of 5 giveaways since May, I’m hosting a Pay It Forward Giveaway for all my followers, current or new. The winner will receive an 11oz. Tyler Candle. The scent I chose for the giveaway is Orange Vanilla, one of my favorites. Tyler Candle Company describes the scent as- “Pure orange & rich vanilla bean blend together with a hint of spice to create an invitingly clean year round favorite!” It’s so yummy.

Basically, I’m too lazy to count multiple entries. To enter, just leave one comment and let me know you are a follower or you’ve just become a follower and tell me your favorite candle scent and/or brand. I’m always looking for new favorites. I’ll announce the winner on Monday, August 3rd.

I LOVE Tyler candles and almost always get them as gifts. I was recently given a WoodWick candle (can find at CRACKER BARREL of all places) and it is DIVINE!!

The scent is like the beach - and it has a woodwick .... so it crackles .. very nice in the winter time!

La Nouvelle Femme said...

Yankee candles are my favorite. I love all the scents that come out around Thanksgiving like pumpkin pie and cinamon spice. I'm a follower.

Woman Interrupted said...

Another new look for your blog! This may be my favorite so far.

I do love candles but they're one of those things I don't spend money on (unless I find what you call a "retail victory".)

amazeingteacher said...

Tiffani said...

Hi Jill!!

Lexilooo said...

Ooooh, I love my gardenia candle from the Tyler Company! Of course, I am a follower too!

Katie said...

I'm a follower! Love your blog.

I usually buy the cheap-o tea lights from Target. My favorite scent is the vanilla and they're fantastic to burn for just a few hours before you have company or something. They're not very attractive though, so the only trouble is you have to put them away before your guests arrive.

Mrs. Foodie said...

Hello! I am a follower as of yesterday. You inspired me to purchase a monogram on etsy.com.

I love the Tyler candles. They are very near and dear to my heart because my best friend gave me two for my birthday that smell like birthday cake!

I love Yankee Candle too! I am a huge fan of anything vanilla.

BUT, Home Interiors (when it was around--haven't heard of them in a while) had a cinnamon candle that I was in love with too. I think we still have a few around the house...but they smell delicious!

I LOVE candles, especially the pretty ones they make around Christmas time. My favorites are anything cinnamon, or holiday smelling from Yankee Candle, so good! I'm already a follower. :)

Polka Dots & Protein Bars said...

I LOVE Tyler candles. My mom and I were just talking about them the other day. I can only find them in one store in Charlotte. And orange vanilla??? YUM! Sounds perfect! I'm a follower, and my favorite candles for the fall/winter are Cinnabon candles, which can be found at WalMart for $5-$8 (seriously, don't judge, they're delicious).

Kristen said...

haha I am a follower and I like all scents! Well, most of them! But I love vanilla so I am sure the orange vanilla smells amazing!

Amy said...

Hey - Ima follower! I don't think you'll be able to get this candle, but I love all of her scents. A lady named Kathy comes by our office periodically and sells home made candles. She has a little case with all of her little samples. We love sniffing through them. Right now I am burning her pumpkin spice candle.

My name is Megan... said...

I LOVE all of these! Diva I have been buying for YEARS! I'm a follower! Enter me :) I pretty much love all the ones you said... :)

Kristin said...

Have you ever tried Capri Blue candles? So yummy!

Hi Jill! I've been gone this week and I almost missed out on your cool "give away." I like the Trish McEvoy.

How are you enjoying San Antonio? Next time I'm in town I'll let you know and we can meet for lunch. Would love see you.

Jewels of My Heart said...

Oh, I love candles too! These are some of my favorites as well. Your blog is too fun. Thank you for following my blog and I am happy I am now following yours too!

I love candles and I'm a follower. I love Yankee Candle Hazelnut coffee. It's retired now, but I can usually find it at the local Yankee Candle outlet. I put it in a large vase on top of fresh coffee beans and light it up. It smells like heavenly coffee throughout the entire house and looks pretty too!

Tiffanie said...

Love your blog, and great giveaway.

My favorite brand is Trapp in orange-vanilla. I didn't know Yankee made an orange-vanilla scent until reading your blog.

good evening friends. I'm really into shoes and I was looking for the sake of that particular model. The prices due to the fact that the sneakers were all over 330 dollars everwhere. But for all I bring about this area selling them someone is concerned half price. I really love these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will probably order these. what do you think?
