April was my birthday month and those of you who have been rocking with LSB for years know, it is my favorite time of the year. Typically I go somewhere grand for an amazing trip with my sister. This year Miss Rona had different plans! I made a few different candle scents to commemorate my past birthday destinations and New Orleans just had to be included! (Cause my 2020 trip got canceled! lol but waaaaah.)
Vibrant and vintage. Mysterious and magical. To go cups on Frenchman street. Second lines in Treme. The patio at Kermit's with a just right breeze and surprise fireworks. People watching in Jackson Square. A brass band cover of your favorite song. Cafe Du Monde - no matter how long the line is. A new gris gris bag. Grilled smoked oysters and red beans and rice. Jazz. Congo Square. Heaven must be like this.
Bold bourbon, enticing beignets, musky amber, and fragrant tobacco are reminiscent of long strolls in the French Quarter basking in the magic of North America's most fantastic city. Sweet. Smoky. Intoxicating. Deep.
Hand poured, whispering wood wick, phthalate free fragrance oil, luxury vegan wax blend. 5 oz = 20-25 hours of burn time.
The wooden wick creates a softly crackling flame. Unique and comforting.
This matte black tin and top is begging to be used again and again. After depleting your candle fill the cleaned container with whatever tickles your fancy.
Tips for getting the most of your candle...
*Place this candle on a heat safe surface before lighting and do not handle while wax is in liquid form. These tins get super hot!
*Burn your new candle at least 2 hours the first time you light it. (After trimming the wick to 1/4-1/8 of an inch, a little nub - seriously, that short.) This will allow the entire top layer of wax to liquify and promote a clean burn that doesn't waste wax. This prevents tunneling of your candle. Wax has a memory so start off right!
*Do not leave a burning candle unsupervised, near kiddos, or surrounded by flammable objects. I also keep my candles away from the wall. Do not burn over four hours at a time. Safety first!
*Before relighting your candle trim.the.wick. (Every time.) I cannot overstate the importance of this! The correct length is 1/4-1/8 of an inch. I snagged a handy wick trimmer (shown in last photo) for just this purpose. Seriously such a crucial item for preventing soot and prolonging candle life. You can also use scissors or break the charred portion off with your fingers so don't let lack of a wick trimmer stop you.
