Greenleaf Candles & Sachets Sponsor Spotlight Review

Oh, you are gonna love GreenLeaf's candles and sachets! I was sent two scents to try and they are First Blush, which is what the picture is on the top of the post, all the different things that you can buy in each scent! The second scent is Gardenia and I also got a sachet in each size that they have for both scents to try.

This is Greenleaf's description of First Blush:

A bride catches the first glance of her groom as she walks down the aisle. A rosy residue lingers on flushed cheeks, evident of a passionate first kiss. First Blush™ bottles up these tender, treasured first moments in the form of a serene fragrance that marries an intense heart of poppies with warm white musk, gently bound in a citrus blend.
I have to admit that First Blush is my favorite. I love fresh clean smells that are not too overpowering. If they are too strong, I get headaches or worse yet, if I am having a rough day and I smell something strong, I can get very nauseous. So, I tend to stay with clean and crisp with a light scent verses a loud scent.

The candles are made with a Natural Soy Wax which is made to burn for a long clean burn up to 80 hours. The wax is specially made for maximum fragrance. The box that the candle comes in as you see from the pictures is decorated and look really pretty.

These sachets are awesome to use in your bathroom to keep it smelling good all the time, hint, you won't need sprays for those bad smells that we don't like to talk about. Or if you would like to put them in any of your closets or  drawers, but I would make sure you have one that is very light in fragrance because some of these could be too much for your drawers in such a close space. Plus it could make whatever fragrance you spray on become a battle between the two.

Below is the other size of the same sachet. I think if you are gonna use one of these for a drawer or closet, use one of these smaller size so it doesn't have such an influence on your clothes.

I also got the Gardenia candle and sachets to try also. I know this scent is popular with alot of people, but it's just not my thing. I consider it one of the loud fragrances that can give me a headache so I let my friend and neighbor try those for me so that I would have someones perspective that likes Gardenia.
She loved the candle and said she used it actually in her kitchen one day when she was doing some cooking and had to use alot of spices and onions and didn't want her house to smell like that and this way they collided with the Gardenia and it gave the house a spring feel like bunches of flowers blooming.  I knew I had picked the right person for this fragrance and knew that she would find something useful to do with both products.
She used these in her laundry room and she keeps that door shut so the rest of the house did not have that scent in it, just the laundry room and it's pretty big so it's not real strong. And for the little sachet, she put that in her guest bathroom and it actually doesn't smell that bad in the smaller form. I went in there to check it out and did not get a headache so that told me that the smaller sachets is what I would use for smaller spaces instead of the large ones. 
The other products you can get at Greenleaf include candle tins, candle cubes, potpourri, aroma decor, room sprays, linen sprays, reed diffusers, home fragrance oils and warmers along with their Signature Reed Diffuser.  So, there is a little bit for everybody, whatever that may be. I love all of those things, so I wouldn't mind any of them.

What lovely products to give as a gift or to receive. I do not like heavy scents either, so a light not to strong candle or fragrance is perfect for me. I do like soy candles also.

candles are always welcome in my house, and love when they have a scent that isn't overwhelming but smells good. And sachets I love to keep in a linen drawer or in a closet to give my clothing a nice fresh scent
