The Sweet Smell of Success?

For some time now I’ve been trying to source some lovely small candles to fit our letterbox packaging but all I could ever find was very cheap tea lights and if I was really lucky, red tea lights with the fragrance of a Christmas pud! Neither of which I’d like to burn in my own home, let alone send out as gifts. I did come across a local company some months ago who could make candles especially for Premurosa however they wanted me to place a large order (something I come across quite often) which is difficult for a small, young company like mine.
So, when one of my existing suppliers (who has also become a lovely friend) recently contacted me to say she was now making candles and wanted my opinion, I was thrilled because I knew immediately that the candles would be lovely, and I wasn’t wrong.
Not only do they look lovely and smell divine, they are handmade with soy wax so environmentally friendly and long burning. Soy candles are a clean burning candle with no petrol carbon soot which can blacken walls and ceilings. They are non-toxic and are less likely to trigger allergies.
For those of you who aren’t aware, soy wax is a plant based wax created from soy beans, a renewable natural resource. Soy wax is biodegradable and any spillages are easily cleaned up using warm water and soap. So, they are good for you and good for the environment.
Initially, I’ve introduced two fragrances to the Premurosa collection and if they do well I’ll introduce some more (I already have some favourites lined up). At present, they are available in French Vanilla and Frankincense and Myrrh, both lovely fragrances and you can order tea lights or pretty heart shaped candle melts. The melts smell so nice and look so pretty that you could just hang them around the house or pop them into your bedroom drawers as special little air fresheners.
As our porcelain plaques are proving so popular, we decided the two would go together nicely to make a gorgeous letterbox gift. After all, what girl wouldn’t like to receive scented candles and a porcelain gift with a sentimental message from a loved one or a friend?
They also make very pretty wedding favours and look gorgeous as part of our special invitation packages (coming to the website soon).
With the addition of these gorgeous scented candles I'm hoping the sweet smell of success will follow!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
