Candle Love

Hello everyone!

Not too long ago, my husband and I went shopping at one of his favorite stores.  They sell "outdoor" style clothing etc.  As soon as we entered the store, I noticed the most wonderful scent.  I asked what it was and they showed me this candle that was burning.  (This was a mom and pop style shop, not a major chain store.)  You could've knocked me over with a feather to find out that it was a scented candle that is typically used at Christmas time.  It didn't smell like a Christmas tree but rather just a great scent that could be used year round.  

Here it is!


They told me that they buy them at Publix, of all places!  So, you know what I did?  I went and bought one.  It appears that it is similar to Yankee candle.  This brand is called, Village candle.  

I placed it in my foyer inside the old crate.


I don't really like the color, but I LOVE the smell!  I will be burning this one a lot!



So, if you're looking for a really good candle, go check this one out at Publix.  It has two wicks so it burns evenly and it smells better burning than just straight from the jar.  This is not a seasonal candle, so it is available year round.


Hope you all have a great weekend!

Luv candles and new recommendations. I will have to look into it. My friend Linda has a little décor shop and she stocks Village candles.
Presently I am burning apple pumpkin by better homes and garden :) Yep... Walmart. Hahaha smells yummy!

LOVE Balsam Fir. I hide those containers in my trophy cups.

Stacey said...

This is candle season - isn't it? Today I picked up a pumpkin pie candle. :)

I love a good candle recommendation and that sounds like a good one. I currently have homemade applesauce in my crock pot, so that's my scent for the day. Lol! It smells nice and fall-like with lots of cinnamon. :)

I love candles, too. I wonder if there is a website for these as we don't have a Publix here. My daughter bought a candle from Bath & Body Works called Sweater Weather and it smell my house up in minutes. I think they are actually better than Yankee Candle.

I LOVE good smelling candles. We don't have Publix around here but I am going to see if I can find that brand now. Thanks....xo Diana

Me again- Here is the link for anyone that wants one that does not have a Publix around them. I did not price shop so there may be other cheaper deals.

Due to allergies, I can't handle scented candles, but I bet this one is a good one.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Kelly,
I have smelled this one and it is a good one. You are right it does not smell like Christmas but more a fresh outdoor scent. Love it. They sell these in the grocery store up here by us too. It is a great one.

Thanks, Kelly. I'm headed to Publix tomorrow to look for one. Sounds like a scent I'd really like..Hubby, too.

Debby said...

We don't have that store here. We have Yankee candles and I think I have seen the other ones. I will be looking. I burn candles all the time. Thanks for posting.

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

I can almost smell it, Kelly! We don't have Publix up here, but I'm going to look around because I think I would love that scent!

Betty from My Irish Cottage Home said...

I have bought some of their candles before and they do smell wonderful.

I've never heard of Publix...don't think we have any around here. I love burning candles at this time of the year.

Linda said...

I LOVE Publix but, alas, there is NOT one anywhere in Texas!!!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

I love the smell of Balsam Fir....I have a Balsam Fir candle made by Yankee Candle and I am assuming the smell must be similar to the one at Publix..no Publix yet in NC...they are building one sort of near to me!..can't wait for it to open!!

Missy George said...

Thanks for the tip Kelly. We don't have publix around here. But I'm sure someone carries it.

Pinky at Designs by Pinky said...

Thanks, Kelly!!! I love candles too. No Publix up here BUT my SIL and her husband are coming here in 2 weeks from Fl. so I will ask her to bring me one!!! Have a great weekend!!!

Katie Mansfield said...

What is a Publix? We don't have one around here. I love the smell of balsam fir. It reminds me of being in the mountains.

Anne said...

Oh I bet that smells amazing! Burning scented candles here today too!

Olive said...

I shop at Publix but have not paid attention evidently.

Karen said...

Yes - one of my all time favorites! Actually the balsam scent itself is, like you said, suitable all year round. Revlon had a shampoo for years (of course they have since discontinued it) - Flex with Balsam. It was SO lovely! I don't know why they don't have cleaners and spray with this scent . . .

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

Good to know. We have a Publix less than a mile from us.

Finding a really nice scented candle can be hard these days with all the 'special scents' companies sell. I love to find something wonderful that I can use all the time. Glad you found something you really like! Blessings, Cindy

There is a Village Candle not far from our cabin. I pass it a lot but have never gone in. Maybe now I will ;).
