Kringle Candle Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have a really awesome company to tell you about today called Kringle Candle Company! I think their unique concept of what they do with their candles is very different and very popular. All of Kringle's candles are white but they decorate the jars to show off their personality. The reason for the candles themselves to be white is because white goes with every décor, burns better and longer and you get more of the fragrance instead of the burn of chemicals from the color process.
I was sent a great array of products to review but the ones I am going to concentrate on today are the ones that are in the Hot Summer Nights Giveaway Hop that starts on July 1st and ends on the 15th along with the Red, White and Blue Giveaway Hop that has the same time line. So, if your link from either of those giveaways come to this post, I combined the review so that I would not get in trouble with Google for reviewing the same company twice in one day. So, you are on the right post.
For the Hot Summer Nights Giveaway Hop I will be reviewing the Watercolors Candle that is below:
The Watercolors Candle has these features:
Width: 3.5 inches
Height:  4.5 inches
Burn Time: 50 hours
Weight:  1.64 lbs.
I got the Medium Size Apothecary Candle and here is a description of the Watercolors fragrance:
The essence of approaching summer. We combined lavish floral notes and sweet fruit accords with a just-right counterpoint of sandalwood and musk to create this masterwork.
Now, I can tell it has musk and the sweet fruits but the sandalwood escapes me but it sure does smell good! Unfortunately, I did not get my package until late on Friday and didn't have time to burn them all to get the best idea of how they will do but the next time I review these awesome smelling candles, I hope to have a wealth of information to share with you.
I love that these Apothecary Jars are nice and thick and very sturdy. The top that covers the candles is extra thick and very well made. I also love the simple, creative design of the Watercolors Candle with it being all white and then the splash of color in the middle of the jar and on the candle lid. It does have a single wick.
The Apothecary Jars come in three sizes, small, medium and large. Kringle Candles have so many different styles of jars that I thought at first I could list them for you but then when I saw the list and the pictures, I was dumbfounded as I have never seen so many different kinds all in one place at one time!  So, I think instead, I will just tell you to head over to the page that shows you them all so you can take a gander yourself!
Now, the prize for the Hot Summer Nights Giveaway Hop is a set of Air Fresheners and a smaller set of numerous scents to tuck into shelves or drawers all around your home! I didn't open any of them so that the winner could have them all but they sure were tempting! You will get 2 large ones in Tranquil Waters and Sunflower Sunrise. I chose those two because they remind me of Summer. Also included for the winner is the 10 sampler pack of smaller scents.

You can also get FREE SHIPPING by using this coupon code:  (KCC2DAY05)
Goes anywhere a candle can, and then some. Hang them in your car, closet, storage unit and more for weeks of intense Kringle fragrance.
These are the smaller scent packages for numerous drawers in your home or use them one at a time for a special drawer that you like to smell whenever you open the drawer. Entirely up to you how you use this awesome little package! There are 10 different scents to try and see which ones are your favorites! If you were to order the whole set of small ones there would be 40 total! Can you image having that many scents to choose from for your car, drawers, rooms or anyplace?
Now, for the Red, White and Blue Giveaway Hop, I am reviewing a set of three candles that they decorated the outside in the colors that match the scents: Blueberry, Cortland Apple and Beachside.  Surprisingly, the Blueberry was my favorite scent. Don't get me wrong, I love Blueberries to eat but never gave much thought about the scent. It smells like Blueberry Muffins baking but with loads of Blueberries, the kind you make from scratch.
Gosh, you are going to love this awesome little set of candles. Each one will burn for12 hours! So, it's like having mini candles in three different places! Or you can use them one at a time. Entirely up to you! Remember the candles themselves are white and it's the jars that are colored to match whatever event that you need them for.
When I told them about Red, White & Blue Giveaway Event, this is what they came up with! Very personal and very chic! I counted a total of 54 scents in the Daylights (colors only) and gosh knows how many more there are in the other lines! You can get the Daylights individually or in a tube that holds six tealights of the same scent.
The winner of the Red, White and Blue Giveaway Event will win the above set! You will get the Blueberry, Cortland Apple and the Beachside (which does indeed smell like you are on the beach). I tried to do scents and colors that match the mood with the event.
I hope that both winners of both packages will love these candles and fresheners. I think I am going to be seeing a lot more of Kringle Candles in the future. Want to know why? Well, take a peek at their past and who made Kringle Candles what they are today. I only grabbed part of the story, so go read it all if you would like on their site under the About Us Section.
About Kringle Candles:
In 2008, I made my first candle on this same old stove purely for fun; I had just turned nineteen. So when my 2009 college course required that I create and promote a product, my choice was natural: candles. As I worked on the project I felt a great sense of heritage and fulfillment, and an idea that wouldn’t go away formed in the back of my mind.  
I discussed expanding the academic assignment into a real business with my father. We spent several days considering what it would be like for both of us if I followed in his footsteps. There was a growing excitement as we realized we both wanted to explore the concept further. 
As part of this process, we decided to see what sort of available facilities might be suited to candle crafting. On a drive through lovely Bernardston, Massachusetts, we discovered a building for sale which seemed to hold great promise. And it was familiar; the owner was a very good former customer of my Dad’s during Yankee Candle’s heyday.

Thanks so much Kringle Candles for letting me put some awesome prizes in both giveaways! Both are Open in the U.S. only. Good Luck to all of you! Stay tuned for more Kringle Candles in upcoming events throughout July and August!

I'm a candle freak. I think I would like the sunflower sunrise. I can't wait to try these.

I like that the candles are all white, sometimes colored candles burn weird. I wish I could smell right though the computer screen!
