The Natural Light Of A Candle & Kringle Snow Capped Fraser - Review!
I love the natural look of a candle as it burns. I love the silence of it, mostly if it isn't burning through a wick and making a cracking sound. But when it isn't, a candle has a good look to itself, provided that the owner puts the candle in a safe place in the home and is draught free.
Many years ago when I first got into buying candles, I used to love watching the flame and the colours that I could see changing within the flame. Of course you have to have a good degree of safety and logic - you don't obviously hold a candle up to your face so that it burns!
As you can see from the photo I have provided, this is the latest of candle holders that I have purchased for any glass jar candle. I can use a Yankee Candle glass jar candle if I want to, but at the moment the candle that is lit is a Kringle Candle, known as "Snow Capped Fraser," and it forms one of the candles that I won in conjunction with a Kringle Candle UK competition and a social media website.
The candle holder is made of bronze metal and it is made in India, though it was previously purchased from Frantic Friday (http://franticfriday.co.uk/home.php) (who are also selling off Kringle Candles in the UK). Kringle Candles are also available from the main website in the U.S: Kringlecandle.com - best to check if you are interested, if they are available near you!
This fragrance is a lovely one for me and it is so long lasting. I have burnt the candle for a period of once to twice a week and each time the fragrance lasts for an hour or hangs around after the flame is extinguished.
Particularly at a time when the weather is cold and windy; the scent of balsam fir, fresh pine and peppermint is very thrilling for me as it reminds of winter time, as well as the freshness of real pine cones.
I don't know how Kringle do it, but they seem to be able to perfect the reality of many natural organic additives and translate them into beautifully white, bright candles that haven't been dulled in colours and yet give off very strong fragrances that burn for a very long time. The prices of their products may be just as expensive as Yankee Candle but I find Kringle Candle offers a much stronger take.
There is also a creamy vanilla additive that seems to stretch out this fragrance further in my home and a baseline of cedar wood that gives this candle a lot of relaxing moments. This is one fragrance that I have been surprised with - normally I am relaxed with more spicier scented candles.
At the moment I also have a Yankee Candle jar burning in my kitchen, but it doesn't smell all that strong unless I go close to it. It is also a dark coloured candle that doesn't look all that bright when lit. Incase you don't know, Kringle Candles come from the same family who invented Yankee Candle and are American by origin.
