Giveaway :: Goose Creek Candle Company

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

There is one way to create the perfect atmosphere that never goes out of style: candlelight. To be honest, I’ve been known to spend hours in the candle section of any home goods store, searching for the absolute perfect scent to take home with me. (Don’t tell me you haven’t done the same. I know you have.) Over the years, my preferences have changed but one thing remains the same. No matter the season, a house just isn’t a home without some good quality candles placed strategically around.

Goose Creek Candle Company is the go to for gorgeous, quality candles. From stunning jar candles to pillars and more, this family run business offers a variety of scents and styles to choose from. Every candle is hand poured, fragrant, and smokeless. Talk about the trifecta of candle perfection! Try a “Tropical Breeze” candle to keep your “Endless Summer” moving straight through until fall. You can thank me later.

Goose Creek Candle Company is giving away one 39oz American Heirloom Jar Candle to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Wednesday, September 17th. Comments now closed…good luck!
If you were to make up your own candle scent, what would it be?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, September 24th, to see if you’ve won!

    I would love to bottle the way my husband smells just after a shower. The mixture of soap and lotion he uses is such a sweet,comforting, familiar smell.

    oh if only!!! The candle scent would be oleander with a touch of baby powder. Do you take requests???

    Anything clean and fresh. “Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, & Thyme” would make a fresh smell and a snappy name for a candle.

    I once had a lavender lemonade that blew my mind and opened my eyes to lavender in general. I pounced on a lemon-lavender scented candle from Yankee when I saw it a few years ago, but it doesn’t really capture the essence of what was so lovely about that drink. If I could get just the right balance of the scents, I’d want a million of those candles!

    Hmmm…I adore lavendar {so sweet & peaceful} & there is something wonderfully sexy about gardenia– but if I was going to customize a candle I would go for the smell of my children when they were babies, fresh out of the bath– all new & sweet & clean!

    A beautiful Miami morning or afternoon: salty sea breeze contrasted with sweet citrus (like mimosa) and the faint scent of suntan lotion. my piece of home.

    Oatmeal Pumpkin Spice. A warm luscious scent that would put me in the mood for the fall season and envelop me in comfort each night when I go home.

    Lavender cupcake.  I love the scent of lavender, but I think in a candle it would be great  toned down a little bit with a vanilla-ey cakey smell 🙂

    Fig leaf, cedar and clover. I like woodsy, grassy smells.

    I would LOVE a combination of Sandalwood, Amber and French Vanilla. I’ve actually made that as a natural room spray and it is devine.

    I have hummed and hahh-ed about this answer… It’s not short!
    If I could, I would have either 4 candles, or 1 biiig one that had different layers. 

    1. Grandma – Anzac biscuits fresh from the oven, sunshine heating up the tea towels, cherry tomatoes from the garden and clean bathroom.
    2. Grandad- His musky office, a slight tang of tobacco from years ago when he smoked a pipe, wool, and somehow a wee bit of smoked salmon in there somewhere.
    3. Nana- Anais Anais perfume, a twist of cigarette smoke, fresh grass, soap and clean linen.
    4. Grandad (yep 2 of them haha)- Again, wool, but not ‘fisherman’s’ wool like my other Grandad. His bedroom-clean linen & also a bit of whiskey. 

    I miss them all terribly and my sense of smell is my strongest sense, so being able to smell them again would just bring them back to life.

    Something with vanilla and a hint of woodiness but not enough to make it masculine – I find usually the vanilla candles are too sweet and the woody ones are too man-ish.

    Tiffany A. says:

    I would love to have a candle that smells like a baby! I love when a baby smells so clean a fresh! It would be like soap and baby powder… It would be such a clean and simple fragrance!

    For fall/winter a Wild Fig and Cedar would smell woody and amazing. Love candles! 
    Definitely whenever I burn candles when it’s cold out people always love vanilla – it smells so home-y and delicious!

    freshly baked bread. 
    there are plenty of candles that smell like cinnamon buns or cookies or other baked goods but ive never come across one that’s straight up, simple and comforting, BREAD… my favorite way for a home to smell!

    Nikki says:

    A true “white flower” smell, made up of mock orange and brugmansia.  I am usually disappointed by white flower candles that smell cloyingly sweet of nothing recognizable.  Mock orange and brugmansia (Angel’s Trumpet) make walking the downtown neighborhoods of Santa Barbara smell like a stroll through a fairy’s garden.

    Lauren Michelle says:

    I would want a candle with a jasmine green tea base and hints of lemongrass, sandalwood, and amber.

    A more ‘true’ scent of Christmas – the scent of garland, pine, and cooking spices!

    Stacy says:

    The way my daughter’s hair smells. I would hold onto it until she left for college and smell it everytime I missed her.

    Lucy W. says:

    Ah I love this one!! I would combine the scents of coziness (burning leaves, christmas trees, and rain)!

    Jennifer says:

    Have you ever stood alone in the woods when it’s snowing? It has a particular scent. It’s very clean and a tiny bit piney. I would make a candle that smells like that and I would call it Winter Snow.

    ashley says:

    I would love a candle that smells like Moscato or fresh air in the fall. I’ve always found scents like that to be too, overpowering, floral or woodsy.

    I want a candle that reminds me of the crisp air in England. It always smells fresh, the constant rain keeping temperatures down. In spring, I’d add a healthy dose of lavender. And my soul would be happy.

    Noma says:

    I am from Zimbabwe, and one scent that is so comforting and warm to me is that of burning fire wood. My grandmother would cook food above a fire she had made in her cooking hut. The smell of burning wood equated the smell of fellowship with family, warmth, and good food! Its just amazing, and I have yet to find a candle that captures that scent.

    Nicole says:

    For a more summery, scent I would like lemon, basil, and mint. For a more autumn-like scent, I would like to capture the scent of freshly fallen leaves mixed with maple and apples.
