Black Dog Candles: Harvest Spice
My youngest daughter shares many traits with me. One of which is a great love for candles. We’re so infatuated with them we burn them year-round. I heard someone at the store a few days ago say, “It’s almost candle-burning season.” Since she wasn’t speaking to me, I didn’t respond but I wanted desperately to tell her that “candle-burning season” is January 1 – December 31.
At least it is in our family.
This candle-loving daughter sweetly bought me a new candle a few days ago, A Black Dog Candle – “Harvest Spice” and it has knocked this autumn-loving candle fanatic’s socks off. For one thing, I love the name and image on the tin – precious dogs. If there’s one thing I love even more than autumn and candles, it’s animals.
Is it any wonder I’m so in love with Black Dog Candles?! A portion of their proceeds are donated to local animal shelters in the Louisville area. I’m honestly not sure I’ll ever buy another brand of candle (someone send my apologies to Bath & Bodyworks).
The Harvest Spice scent is out of this world beautiful. There’s nothing about it that doesn’t scream AUTUMN. Not only is the scent fall-licious, it fills the entire room with its beauty and the scent lasts an especially long time. These are very, very high-quality candles and I can’t say enough good things about them.
These candles would make perfect Christmas gifts and they’re pretty much must-haves for all of the holidays.
I bought another one at Kroger (on the Kentucky Proud kiosk) yesterday: Christmas Past. I haven’t lit it yet, though I’m dying to. I’m going to see if I can make it at least until after Halloween before trying this one.
While Black Dog Candles are easier to find if you live in the Louisville area – those of us in the rest of the state aren’t completely out of luck. Not only do Kroger stores sell them, you can also shop online. In fact, you’ll find the full collection online whereas the ones at Kroger are generally seasonal.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t step into my pulpit and give a quick reminder to everyone to Shop Kentucky as often as possible. Not only is there a lot to be said for supporting our neighbors, Kentuckians are simply brilliant at what they do. Products that carry the Kentucky Proud logo are in a league of their own. Next time you’re in your favorite Kroger, head for the Kentucky kiosk and find at least one product to carry home with you. As is the case with Black Dog Candles, you’re likely to find a new obsession that you wondered how in the world you ever lived without!
