If you're like me, you are likely still shopping for Christmas gifts. I'm not hasty in my pursuits...I always try to match a gift with the personality of its recipient; so I don't take the shopping lightly. I've seen lots of gift guides on-line and have even seen unique items in stores but few have made an impact on me like Low Country Luxe candles.
Disclaimer: I, The Broke Socialite, am a candle snob. There I said it. Yes. I am OK with it. From Jo Malone to Votivo, I've always appreciated a better candle; even if I had to wait to purchase them on eBay.
There's not enough space for me to write about the eco-friendly (and chic) line from Georgia artisan, Natalie Evans.
First of all, you must see the detail of the candle. The glass holders are substantial and very reminiscent of Cadillac-quality. The candle itself is soy based and offers a clean burn (See? Didn't I tell you I know my candles?). Next, the aroma envelopes the air much like a cashmere pashmina does your shoulders.
As a true Southern belle, I love the creativity that reeks all things country coast found in lovely Savannah and Charleston. Doesn't it make you think of sleepy moss trees and mansions? Check out the background.
"Sugah" from the most recent additions (including "Belle" and "Beau"...how cute, right?) simply tickled my fancy. What I think I love most is that $3.50 from the purchase of each candle goes to the March of Dimes. How, well, sweet. I know. I can't help it!
Consider gifting "Sugah" (or any of the other delightful candles in the line) and you'll surely warrant a kiss. (Yes. Pun sweetly intended.)
Low Country Luxe can be followed on Facebook and Twitter.
