Circle E Candles Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Circle E Candles (just down the road in Fredericksburg, Texas:) we were recently given the opportunity to try out a 28 oz. Bird of Paradise jar candle. Oh, my my! I have a new favorite candle store:)

Bird of Paradise is Circle E Candles most popular of all candles! This sweet intoxicating smell will make you get a sweet tooth if you don't have one already!What Circle E Candles has to say about the goods:
"The Best Candles You'll Ever Find
Circle E Candles are not your typical candle. To create the signature candles we are known for the longest-burning and most delightfully fragrant candles on the market. We combine the finest fragrances available with our own exclusive blend of the highest-quality waxes. We then painstakingly hand-pour our candles into high-quality heavy glass containers using only lead-free wicks. No detail is left to chance.
With our consistently superior products, we have built a fiercely-loyal following. As a retailer you'll take pride in offering products that provide such consistently high levels of customer satisfaction.
Fragrances with Wicks
Circle E Candles have a characteristically smooth, creamy texture. By hand-pouring in stages, we avoid the mottled look you see in other candles. Mottling is caused by fractures in the wax that result from air entrapped in the wax as it cools. These fractures can also limit fragrance intensity, so we incorporate a special additive to prevent mottling from occurring. We use only the finest lead-free wicks and premium wax blends for a cleaner, longer burn. Hand-poured Circle E Candles also have a higher fragrance level, giving you consistent, quality fragrance down to the very last burn.
Hand-poured Distinction
Sure, it takes more time to hand pour each candle, but the result is well worth the wait. Our special blend of soft smooth waxes ensures the fragrance level at the bottom of each Circle E Candles candle is as strong as it is the first time you light it.
Vast Variety of Scents
Each year Circle E introduces new fragrances to our already extensive selection. Like fine wine, each candle has a distinct color, bouquet and ambiance.
Beautiful Home Décor
Circle E Candles come in stylish containers made of top-quality heavy glass. Our signature line of square Jar Candles is uniquely-designed to allow the candle to rest on its lid while burning.
From signature Jar Candles and Frosted Bow Boxes to simple votives, our styles complement any décor. After they have burned down, the containers are designed to be reused as decorative spice jars, stylish canisters, jewelry boxes, or anything else you can dream up.
Quick Ship Time
One particular advantage Circle E Candles offers over others is our quick ship time. We normally ship orders within one to three days - saving you inventory space.
We are ready to supply your needs on demand. From one candle to a semi truck full, our 35,000 square foot warehouse is stocked and standing by to fill your order.
We're always ready for your order… no matter how large or small.
Pay Us a Visit Soon
We welcome you to stop in and visit the Circle E Candles showroom in Fredericksburg, nestled in the lovely rolling hill country of central Texas.
We're open seven days a week, and we always keep a fresh stock of your favorite fragrances on hand.
Enjoy!"

What we say:
I loved my Circle E Candle! I love that is was clean burning and the scent wasn't too harsh on my (crazy sensitive) sinuses:) This candle burns and burns...I think it may last forever, but just in case it doesn't, I think we will definitely be reusing to cool glass jar it came in. Within just 30 minutes, this candle scent had spread throughout our 1600 sq ft home. Delicious!!
