3 Scents Every Man Will Love

3 Scents Every Man Will Love

Want a candle even he will enjoy? According to our research, these are the three most popular scents among men:

Vanilla

Perhaps it’s their sweet-tooth, but men love the smell of vanilla. While some men say the smell is a turn-on, everyone enjoys a home that smells as good as dessert.

 

Lily of the Valley

According to studies, a certain percentage of men positively react to the smell of the delicate white flower “Lily of the Valley.” This sweet floral scent is subtle enough to catch men’s attention without overpowering their senses.

 

Pumpkin + Lavender

This powerful combination of scents is the number one aroma for men, according to survey results. Researchers already believe vanilla, cinnamon and lavender all act as natural aphrodisiacs–but when combined, look out!

Enjoy Some Autumn Delight with Kristin’s New Fall Scents

Introducing Kristin and Company’s Three New Fall Candle Scents

How awesome is fall? Leaves are changing colors, the weather is cool and crisp, and it’s the transition time from T’s to sweatshirts and sweaters. It’s part of what makes this season a favorite for so many people. Fall candle scents add something special to the season. Enjoy some autumn delight with Kristin’s new fall scents to celebrate this time of year!

Fall into fall: What makes fall great?

Why we fall in love with fall:

Candles

Kristin and Company soy wax candles to be exact! When it gets dark in the evening, light a candle and look out at the moon! Fall candle scents make fall even better.

Color

The colors in fall are vivid and beautiful. The leaves change colors and turn the world into a stunning painting. Everywhere you look there are pops of color, integrating bright colors into the usual green and brown motif. Leaves are beautiful, colorful, and remind us of nature and the circle of life.

Crunch crunch

The crunch of leaves is fun and strangely satisfying. It’s kind of like popping bubble wrap, but the natural version. No matter your age, it never gets old.

Perfect sunshine

The sun is still bright so we can enjoy the light and get a little recommended vitamin D; but the sun’s rays won’t give you sunburn or make you sweltering hot.

Happy Halloween

Halloween is on its way. On the other 364 days of the year, you feel a twinge of guilt buying large quantities of chocolate. But on October 31st, you get to buy treats to hand out to kids in cute costumes; and at around 8pm the rest is yours – guilt free! Plus you can dress up and enjoy the whimsy, as it’s the one time each year it is socially acceptable for adults to wear a super hero costume in public!

Horror movies

Horror movies are more fun to watch on Halloween (Or, scarier depending on how seriously you take the holiday.).

Giving thanks for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is coming. And thank goodness for Thanksgiving. It’s a time for family, friends, and food! (And shopping for some!)

Sweaters

Sweaters are comfortable and cozy! The weather is finally cool enough to warrant them after four months of your attempts to wear the thinnest fabrics possible.

Pumpkin

Pumpkin pie is worth the 11-month wait. Buy or bake an extra one to freeze, for you pumpkin enthusiasts. And pumpkin spice lattes are back!

Apples, apples, apples

Apples are always good. And they’re a healthy alternative to sweets while still being as festive as the rest of the fall menu. Caramel apples sweeten life up and are unmistakably fall. Not to mention apple cider, apple pie, and apple crisp!

Presenting Our New Fall Candle Scents

These fall candle scents will get you in the mood for fall.

  1. Cozy Sweater
  2. Give Thanks
  3. Harvest Moon

Cozy Sweater

The essence of roasted chestnuts and brown sugar will surround you and keep you cozy!

Try roasting chestnuts and baking your favorites like apple crisp and apple cake. Get into your favorite cozy sweater and burn a Kristin Cozy Sweater candle to enhance the evening. The warmth of candles and sweaters make every night a little warmer.

SHOP NOW 

Give Thanks

Entice your senses and be thankful with the aroma of warm apple and walnut crisp right out of the oven.

This candle is great for the Thanksgiving holiday. Give Thanks is a scent that welcomes guests into your home and makes them feel just that: right at home! After the smell of the walnut crisp subsides, light up a Kristin Give Thanks candle to calm the mood (depending on your in-laws!), and continue the festive, aromatic atmosphere.

SHOP NOW

Harvest Moon

Cinnamon, vanilla, and clove bouquets … bright and brisk like the Harvest Moon!

Summer is Wedding Season: Custom Labeled Candles are Ideal for Decorations and Favors

Summer is Wedding Season: Custom Labeled Candles are Ideal for Decorations and Favors

Planning a wedding? Custom labeled candles are a wedding favor to give to your guests as a way to remember and commemorate the special day. Candles are among wedding decorations and favors that last well beyond the ceremony and are universally liked. In other words, they’re a great choice for a big, diverse group.

A Great Gift and Multifunctional

Candles can double as a decoration and a party favor. We all love candles and a label will make your guests remember the day every time they burn it. Kristin and Company’s custom labeled candles are also a great reception decoration and table topper.

Soy Wax for Safety

Our candles are ideal for wedding decorations and favors because they are made from soy wax, which burns at a lower temperature making them safer than traditional paraffin candles. This is an important consideration for guests with small children.

Recommended scents for custom labeled candles:

Love Spell and Soulmates scents are the perfect scents to celebrate and remember your special day. Another choice you can’t go wrong with if you aren’t sure which scent guests might like is unscented candles.

  • Love Spell
  • Soulmates
  • Unscented

 

Love Spell

Love Spell is a sweet bouquet of blended summer flowers and mandarins.

Flowers – The sweet, refreshing smell of a bouquet of flowers. This is sure to remind guests of all the flowers surrounding the ceremony.

Mandarins – The sweet, citrusy scent that heightens awareness, often added to floral scents.

Originating in China, mandarins are tropical and sub-tropical fruit. This reminder of sunny weather is a perfect match for a summer wedding.

Historically, the Chinese viewed the mandarin as a symbol of good fortune. That certainly bodes well for the beginning of a long marriage! Traditional Chinese beliefs also view oranges as a sign of expected positive change. And marriage certainly brings a lot of positive changes with it. Such references to good luck in the future make the mandarin an appropriate choice for wedding decorations and favors.

Love Spell is available in 8, 16, 18, and 28 ounce sizes.

Soulmates

Soulmates is a light musk with lily of the valley and sandalwood, along with a touch of vanilla.

Lily of the valley – A sweetly scented flower. Adorning expensive weddings of modern-day royalty, candles carrying the scent of lily of the valley are a “sweet” compromise that’s easy on your wallet.

Sandlewood – From a tree indigenous to India, sandlewood holds a dry, woody scent that reduces tension, enhances your mood, and is generally relaxing. It blends well with other scents, lily of the valley and vanilla being no exception!

Vanilla – Indigenous to central Mexico, the vanilla bean now grows in multiple locations, Madagascar now being the largest producer. This rich, mellow scent is an enduring favorite that reduces stress. No wonder we insert the scent in so many baked goods. However, no need to bake anything to enjoy the scent when your guests go home with this vanilla-laden candle.

Soulmates is available in 8, 16, 18, and 28 ounce sizes.

Unscented

Unscented candles are another good choice for a couple of reasons. Some people are sensitive to smell or have preferences for certain scents and not others. An unscented candle allows you to appeal to all tastes.

Why Label?

Why are custom labeled candles a good idea? Custom labeled candles add a personal touch to the day and a way for guests to take a keepsake of the day home with them. They’re like the playbill to a good play. Only, in this case you’re not acting – your day is actually here!

What Should the Label Say?

The label could simply have the bride’s and groom’s names, wedding date, and location. Clean and simple to commemorate the special day.

Additonally, it’s wise to include the name of the candle and its description. This is especially helpful if you purchase multiple candles for guests to choose from.

Remember, even on the largest candle, label space is limited and you don’t want the label to be too cluttered. No worries, however, because our in-house design team can help you come up with a label design. You have enough to deal with preparing for the wedding.

How Should the Label Be Designed?

There are so many options! Do you have wedding colors? A candle that coordinates is the perfect way to commemorate the day and tie your party favor into the day’s theme.

Stick to the Script?

A calligraphy script is traditional and elegant, but a modern look can be sophisticated too.

Remember Proportions

Then there’s the size and shape of your labels. One element that should determine this is the size and shape of the candle it’s labeling. You want the label to be proportional to the candle.

A summary of custom labeled candles’ label ideas:

  • Bride and groom names
  • Location of wedding
  • Date of wedding
  • Scent name
  • Candle and scent ingredients
  • Where candle was made
  • Greeting message
  • Candle weight
  • Estimated burn time
  • A decoration or embellishment
  • Candle safety tips
