More Candle to Love: NEW Sea Salt 3-wick

Sea Salt 3 wick -final 1

Finally, Summer is here whenever you like for as long as you like with our final new triple-wick candle of the season, Sea Salt.

Inspired by our summer journey to Saint Cyr sur Mer, a sleepy, coastal town in the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France. We chartered a boat and took to the turquoise waters, enveloped by the smell of salty air and inspired by the way natural salts were infused in coastal delicacies, fresh from the sea like mussels & the region’s infamous bouillabaisse. Invigorating.

18 oz. soy candle, retails for $50. contact A Beautiful Mess by Kymberley Fraser to order yours!

The next candle from our Spring collection is the large, 18 oz. 3-wick beloved Belgian Linen scent. Travel to Belgium where you can tickle your nose with the aromas of warm Belgian waffles and imagine laying atop a bed made up of fresh Belgian linen, the finest in the world. Inspired by our travels through the Flanders region, the Belgian Linen blend has a top note of floral, middle note of ozone, and bottom notes of woods & musk. Air out the linen this season and envelop yourself in irresistible richness. Clean.

For our friends abroad, these are just in at Carnill & Company Limited, in the United Kingdom!

Even More Candle to Love

Cashmere 3 wick -final 1

When we launched our new (and initially limited-edition) holiday triple-wick candles at the end of 2013, they were our biggest candles yet and we knew you’d like them. It quickly became clear, however, that you LOVE them… and we heard you! We are so thrilled to announce the expansion of our large, 3-wick candles with a collection growing even larger for Spring.

The first of our newest 18-ounce candles is the elegant Cashmere candle. With winter holding on a bit longer and Spring on the horizon, nothing warms you up like cashmere. Now you can wrap yourself in this inspired and sophisticated herbal scent. Infused with the warming scent of patchouli, Persian limes and a touch of vanilla, this scent will brighten up any room. Now with an impressive burn time of about 90 hours!

Available for purchase at our California partner, A Beautiful Mess. The triple-wick candles will be up online soon or call in to reserve yours now (818.874.9092).

Stay tuned for our next big candle release!

It’s so nice hearing from friend’s on the road and I just had to share this nice shot captured by a member of the Linnea’s Lights family. Chrissy was in Naples, Florida and snapped this photo of our candles at Jett Thompson Antiques. What a beautiful shop and of course we love the display! How fun to see our candles (and new, larger triple wicks) out in the wild.

Where have you spotted Linnea’s Lights candles lately?

NEW Spring Candle: Eucalyptus

hr-eucalyptus-single

We are proud to share our newly launched Eucalyptus candle with you, fresh from the studio to join our Spring lineup!

Cool eucalyptus warmed with pacific woods & fresh air. Breathe easier with the fortifying scent of eucalyptus. Native to Australia, the plant was first introduced to the Americas during the California Gold Rush of 1849. Infused with the essence of pacific woods, this candle captures the feel of a fresh walk in the great outdoors. Tranquil.

Combining natural soy wax, lead-free cotton wicks, and pure scents, Linnea’s Lights clean-burning candles are carefully hand-poured in small batches.

- Soy wax, fragrance oil, cotton wick, glass
- Handmade in the USA

Sprung for Spring

I think we can all agree it’s been one long winter and I’ve been looking for signs of Spring wherever I go. I can JUST begin to make out the tips of a few green buds beginning to peek out in the garden here and I’m so looking forward to seeing some colorful blooms.

In the meantime, I came across these cheerful rainbow cakes by the talented Flour Shop and thought it was just the pop of color I needed today! Don’t they cheer you right up?

I’m also excited to see our new Spring/Summer 2014 collection begin to hit shops. Geranium, Eucalyptus and Persian Lime are all available now! Such lovely pick-me-ups, I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.

Happy Spring!

Gwyneth’s Scrapbook: All That Inspires

Microsoft Word - Document2

As a complete fan of all things Gwyneth, I’ve been following her lifestyle newsletter and site GOOP from day one. Have you seen it? I find it quite enjoyable and often inspiring. Last week I received the loveliest email from my friends at White’s Mercantile, a beautiful shop in Tennessee, letting me know that their holiday goodie bag to Ms. Paltrow had made it into her GOOP Scrapbook! I was so thrilled for them and imagine my surprise when I saw a Linnea’s Lights Belgian Linen candle peeking out from the bundle!

Use it well GP, and thank you so much White’s Mercantile! Much love to you all. Loved the image below of Diane von Furstenberg, and of course, there’s our sweet candle! Find the full scrapbook here: http://www.goop.com/journal/see/274/scrapbook
