There’s nothing comparable to a beautiful scent wafting through the air while doing something creative. I’m known to light a candle for my daily writing sessions and while relaxing in the tub on Sundays. Candles provide a calming effect while doing battle with a blank page or decompressing from your thoughts in a hot bath.
If you’ve been floating through this blog or my Insta, you may (or may not) have noticed an elegant black candle with gold rim in my photos. It’s the EB Florals Rose + Amber candle and it’s my new fave for my desk. It smells INCREDIBLE!
I adore being surrounded by candles. Hot bath? Candles. Writing sessions? Candles. Movie night? Candles. And believe it or not, I even sit calmly and meditate while staring at a candle flame. It may sound strange, but it works. It gives your mind something to focus on. I’m awful at the close your eyes, cross your legs, normal sit and meditate style.
But back to introducing you to EB Florals!
EB Florals x Saks – Rose + Amber Candle
When I was introduced to EB Florals candles on a visit to Saks, I was blown away. The scents are so authentic. It’s like a real flower (or whole garden) in a candle. The brand ambassador at Saks took me through each candle scent one by one. I couldn’t believe how authentic the scents were, each evoked an emotion or a memory of a place I had visited.
I chose Rose + Amber because it brought back memories of my trip to Paris in the spring of 2009. It reminded me of the rose garden I somehow wandered into off the Champs Elysees and it was heaven. I stopped to not only photograph but smell almost every single rose.
What more could one ask for than being reminded of a beautiful, glorious rose garden in Paris?
It’s comforting to me and a scent I’ll never get sick of.
Rose + Amber smells so divine. It’s a soft, subtle, sweet rose garden. When I burn this candle, it’s not overwhelming like some can be. It’s like walking through a dew filled rose garden or into a florists cold room and having the soft sweet scent of roses wafting in the air around you. That’s the best way I can describe it.
I smelled so many candles, it was so hard to choose, but I kept going back to Rose + Amber. The memory and emotion it evoked were hard to set aside. There were other contenders in the assortment, so I can definitely see another in my future.
Although they are a luxury candle, they’re comparably priced to others at $85CDN ($70USD).
Currently, they’re exclusive to Saks and you can find them online here, but I prefer to go instore to smell the samples. It’s an experience you have to do at least once!
If you have a store near you, go in and see which scent evokes a memory or emotion for you.
What’s your favourite candle brand + fragrance?
