We are excited to share with you some new kitchen candles sent to us by etúHOME. They are specifically created for the kitchen with all sorts of delicious blends customized to be reminiscent of their favorite European cities. Their candles are made from the finest essential oils created in Grasse, France, which is the perfume capitol of the world. The essential oils are hand mixed with a blend of high-quality mineral and vegetable waxes. Used together, this customized blend guarantees the candle’s longevity and keeps the scent powerful each time you burn it plus it helps keep an elegant and smooth appearance. My two favorites were the Palermo and Geneve.
The Palermo is according to their website,  “a fresh and sparkling scent comes alive with a simple combination of lemon and ginger. Palermo, which was once entirely a citrus grove, is renowned for its wonderful lemons. Its nickname, Conca d’Oro, means Bowl of Gold and references the abundance of lemon trees that once covered the city. Our candle pairs this zesty lemon fragrance with the spicy notes of the ginger root creating the perfect scent to fill your kitchen before your guests arrive. Ease your mind and refresh the air you breathe with this lively scent.” And I can definitely attest to what a beautiful fresh and citrusy scent is has and I love how it makes the kitchen smell.
My other favorite is the Geneve, which I am sure comes as no surprise as it is a chocolate and hazelnut mix.  Here is how they describe it, “On the southern tip of Lac Leman lies the beautiful city of Geneva surrounded by the Alps with views of the stunning Mont Blanc. During the 17th century, chocolate making began in Switzerland. World renowned for its quality, Swiss chocolate is often paired with hazelnuts, which give texture to the creamy confection. The classic combination of dark chocolate and toasted hazelnuts creates a complex scent that is bitter without being overpowering. Light this candle, and you will be instantly transported to a Swiss chalet high in the show-covered Alps.” I thought it was a sweet smelling candle and loved how it made our house feel.


Not only do the candles smell divine I absolutely love the simple elegant jar and the beautiful packaging of them!





They also carry this large size which is absolutely gorgeous!
