News from the Candle Studio

The evening is crisp and the scent of fall rain lingers in the air as I sit down to write about the latest news from the Soy Works Candle studio. It’s been a busy fall as we’ve been gearing up for the fast approaching candle season. Candle season? Yes, there’s definitely a season when candles and melts are more sought after and it starts right about now.

As our activities turn indoors, I know that I crave the warmth of pumpkin, apples & spices once the weather starts to turn colder. There is something comforting about the scent of mulled cider  on a cool fall day. It’s the sort of scent that makes me want to curl up with a warm, puffy blanket, a warm beverage and a good book.

Of course, the world has gone crazy for pumpkin spice and we have had those scents long before they were the “it” scents of fall. While I’m not a huge fan of cloves, I do love our simple cinnamon pumpkin. It’s warm, earthy and scrumptious.  For those of you who do love the whole pumpkin pie spice experience, check out both our pumpkin latte and pumpkin pie….oh, and don’t forget pumpkin cheesecake for a rich spiced cheesecake. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I recommend using our search box up there to your right and typing in pumpkin for several more goodies like pumpkin roll, which is a rich pumpkin gingerbread cake with creamy frosting. Your home will smell like you’ve been baking all day! We’d like you to experience all of our amazing fall fragrances and to help you out, we’re offering 50% off all fragrances in the fall section of our website until October 31st. Use coupon fall50 to save and please, tell a friend or two.

We’ve rebranded our candle club to exactly that…. Candle Club. It’s simple and easy to remember and to use. If you would like to be surprised by the scents arriving at your door each month, this is the right product for you. You tell us your likes & dislikes, candles/melts/both then pick a candle club box size. We’ll do the rest based on your likes and ship a box to you each month.

Earlier this summer, I began testing new containers for our candle line and the testing is almost complete. While the large Emma jar and fluted square jar didn’t work out there are some super cute square votives that tested beautifully. Each square votive is about 3 ounces and has a burn time of 20-30 hours. Look for them on our website soon.

Thank you for stopping by our spot on the web. We appreciate all of our loyal customers and to those of you who are new to the Soy Works Candle Company brand, we hope to share our products and service with you for years to come. Enjoy the present and have a warm, richly scented fall.
