If there's anything I love more than the romantic ambience of candlelight, it's the romantic ambience of a cozy fire. Unless we're the one lighting and stoking it. The flaming part is great; it's just the preparing and the cleanup part that's hot, sooty and frustrating! We haven't lit a fire in our fireplace for so long that we actually decided to board up our chimney. I miss that crackling fire, but fortunately My Blog Spark and Febreze have come to my rescue by introducing me to a candle that actually mimics the sound of a crackling indoor fire -- Febreze Home Collection's Wooden Wick Candles.
Febreze Wooden Wick candles recreate the calming crackle of a fire and last for up to 80 hours.
Available in nine premium scents, these tranquil candles are specially designed with a wooden wick to recreate the ambiance and sound of a crackling fire indoors. Offering a brilliant range of everyday fragrances, Febreze Home Collection Wooden Wick candles can help inspire a scent and design transformation in your home. Be sure to look for Febreze Home Collection Wooden Wick candles at your local Walmart in fragrances like Green Tea Citrus, Pomegranate Mango, Cranberry Pear, Orange Honeycomb, Rosewood Plum and Willow Blossom; as well as seasonal scents that include Anjou Pear Spice, Gingersnap Vanilla, and Yumberry Sangria. Check out Febreze on Facebook and Twitter today! Visit Febreze on Facebook or Febreze on Twitter and “Like” or “Follow” the brand to keep up with the latest news from Febreze.
I received 3 Febreze Wooden Wick candles from Febreze and MyBlogSpark, and at first I couldn't really tell what made it different from other candles. Sure, there was the wooden wick, but so what? Then I lit the first candle -- and I knew. The wooden wick crackles and pops when it's lit, sounding for all the world like a miniature fireplace! It's amazing how cozy and calming it sounds!
This candle truly engages the senses. You see the beautiful, vibrant color of the candle and the merrily flickering flame. You touch the smooth, gleaming glass jar (and by the way, the sticker removes really easily so you can display the candle in your home without looking like a brand advertisement). You hear the cracking sound. You smell the wonderful aroma. Okay, you don't taste the candle, but the way the Cranberry Pear (and also, I'm sure, the Gingersnap Vanilla) smells, you can almost imagine something hot and bubbly waiting in the kitchen for you to devour while you're sitting in front of that crackling fireplace. It's quite a unique experience, and one I'll be enjoying on these chilly autumn nights!
The scents are hit-and-miss. The whole family loved the Cranberry Pear scent and thought the Rosewood Plum scent was quite pleasant (even if it did smell like a musty Victorian posy), but none of use liked the Anjou Pear Spice. Fortunately, with 6 scents, including 3 separate seasonal scents, there's a good chance you'll fall in love with at least one.
The Bottom Line
Febreze Wooden Wick candles are a heavenly way to set the mood for a cozy evening in front of the fireplace (even though you don't have one) on a chilly autumn night.
