We’re experiencing a true fall this year. Often in Montana, we go straight from summer to winter, but this year we are enjoying beautiful average temperatures. We have crisp 40° mornings and warm 60° days turning into beautiful evenings pleasant enough to enjoy outside by candlelight and fire pit.
The slow changing of the seasons is one of the things I’m grateful for this year. I adore spending time outside in the morning and evenings relaxing on the deck. I can often be found there with my favorite warm beverage and a great smelling candle. During these leisurely moments on the candle studio’s deck I prefer to take care of the business side of Soy Works Candle Company. While I would like to believe that I’m going to invent something as great as sliced bread during these moments, instead it’s when I think of improvements & great offers to bring to you.
One of these improvements is the ability to review all products on our website. Even though we’ve made candles since 2000 and have been selling them since 2001 we’ve never given you the ability to review them. The main reason is technology just wasn’t on our side. Reviews were something big stores and big companies had access to and small business owners simply couldn’t afford the option. Well, at least until a few years ago. So why did it take us so long to jump on the bandwagon? Simply because scent is subjective. What I like may not be what you like and what you like may not be what others like. I wasn’t sure that reviewing scents would make sense, but then I realized the power of other people’s opinions. If you’ve enjoyed our candles, please take a moment and share your experiences with us. The ability to review each candle scent is located on the product page for that fragrance.
Another item that used to be limited to big stores is digital gift certificates. We are excited to introduce digital gift certificates to Soy Works Candle Company. These gift certificates can be given in any amount to anyone with an email address. You can email them to yourself to be given away later or email them directly to the recipient. Gift certificates are great for the hard to buy for, the picky and just anyone who loves candles and melts.
If you follow our blog you know that we often test new fragrances. For the last few months we’ve been working on some new Christmas and winter scents. I can say that it was interesting to have the candle studios smell like a Christmas tree in August but it was sure worth it. Take a look at the new scents of cinnamon spruce, bayberry black forest, and bonfire bliss. They will not disappoint.
Don’t forget to take advantage of the current deal we’re offering, which is 50% off all candles in the winter and holiday department. To get your discount use coupon code holiday50. While supplies aren’t limited, the coupon code is. Be sure to use it before 12/01/2016.
That’s all the news from the candle studio today; I think I’m headed outside to the deck. Be sure to take some time soon to slow down and enjoy your favorite space before the hustle of the holidays is upon us.
All the best,
