We just adore Yankee Candles for their quality (they infuse scent in any room even when they are not lit), fanciful scents and beautiful jars and containers - decor in themselves. But it's the seasonal Yankee Candles that has us hooked. A recent crop is out and we picked Vanilla Cupcake (just in time for after school bakesales), classic McInstosh Apple and a stunning Pumpking Buttercream (see the matching recipes). Yankee Candles have just about cornered the market on concept candles. Yankee Candle approach is something they call ‘scentertaining" and "scentmosphere". In this way, given this trendy market for ‘smell good’ things, Yankee Candles have been ahead of their time –providing gorgeous, quality candles in both traditional scents and innovative ones that keep things fresh.  Check www.YankeeCandle.Com for the full line (oatmeal cookie, carrot cake, and sweet strawberry are all time favorites of mine.

Fruity, Fresh, Sweet, Woody, or Floral -
Gold Canyon has a candle for all occasions and moods and Betterbaking.com has a free recipe to match each scent!

Gold Canyon is company that offers candles online (and companion scented products) as well as a party-plan candle business (if you want to be a Gold Canyon hostess) with more than 26,000 Independent Fragrance Consultants across North America. Gold Canyon offers a complete line of candles, bath and body products and home products including home fragrance in the form of scented candles, room sprays and sachets; home décor with various candle holders; a full line of body care essentials and candle care products such as wick dippers and trimmers and wickless home fragrance.

What’s really exceptional about Gold Canyon is the stunningly long-lasting fragrances and the authenticity of the fragrance. Lilac smells like lilac – not bug spray; Oatmeal Cookie smells like Grandma’s best batch of oatmeal cookies and Sweet Cinnaroll is just that. Their Rhubarb Strawberry Candle is garden fresh but their Apple Candle is the BEST – and most natural apple candle I have ever inhaled. It is addictive –and fruity, sweet and apple-orchard replete. Candles feature two weeks and even their tea lights outlast any tea lights on the market. Beyond this, Gold Canyon has just the scents you’re looking for – catching on classics and trendy temptations. Their customer service is the best.

There are also collections of thematic candles with different scented personas, as well as masculine candle scents for the metrosexuals in your life and even green, cleaning products in their Homeology line as well as homeopathic fragrances in various products.

Betterbaking.com recommends the complete line of Gold Canyon candle collections but we have tried these particular scents from their Café Collection and are pleased to match them with corresponding free recipes from BetterBaking.com. Bake up a batch of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, brew a pot of tea and light an Oatmeal Raisin Candle from Gold Canyon for a total oasis of scent and flavor. (Or just light the candle – less calories!)

Pacific Perfume is well named for each and every one of their products, be it candles, perfumes (sprays or delightful solids in tiny compacts) or soaps, wafts a spirit and scent of the Pacific exotic. We tried their soy based candles in Brazilian Mango Grapefruit as well as a spicy Tibetan Mountain Temple, containing gorgeous notes of ginger, vertiver and orange. From exotic mango and ginger, switch over to their light, floral soaps of lilac, Waikiki Pikake and Nerola Orange Blossom. What makes Pacifica stand out is their quality (the ingredients are exceptional, the very style and heft of the bars of soap and candles are a cut above), and the exceptional scent blending.
