Mmmmm there is nothing better than a great smelling candle burning in the house and I recently had the opportunity to review the perfect summer candle and a lotion bar from Aromatic Escape. Before I tell you about the great products that I was sent let me tell you about this great company...
Aromatic Escape was founded and created by Sabrina Gould in 2002. Well before the market exploded with candle makers, Sabrina was spending lots of time and research into finding the perfect blend of ingredients for her products. The classic Aromatic Escape candle was born in a Jelly Jar (Mason Jar of the times). The truth is, a candle needs to be designed well to perform, no matter the wax used. A lot of trial and error goes into the making of all products - the right scents, the right wax and the perfect mix of all ingredients to compliment each other. Her products sold successfully at flea markets and then at craft shows and today Aromatic Escape is still growing and is now being sold in Florida and Maryland. In addition to the original candles, Aromatic Escape now has a full line of body products, which includes salt scrubs, sugar scrubs, body masks and lotion bars.
Aromatic Escape sent me the perfect scented 9 oz candle ($10) for summer called Butt Naked, which by the way is the scent of the month ( July ) at Aromatic Escape where you will receive 20% off of the Butt Naked products!
I have been burning my candle for several weeks now and I just love it. Butt Naked has a tantalizing base note medley of granny smith apples and honeydew melon, middle notes of strawberries and pears with hints of spice.
Aromatics Escape candle wax is a soy/paraffin mix. The soy allows them to burn cleaner and longer than strictly paraffin candles and the paraffin allows them to hold the scent better than strictly soy candles. These candles burn about 50-60 hours each and they DO NOT pit in the center as many candles on the market do. They burn flat and even all the way down to the bottom of the jar which is so nice. I LOVE this scent and my house smells soooooo good when I burn this one!
The next product that I was able to try is one of their Lotion Bars ($10). I have never seen these before so I was so excited to try one. If you've never tried a lotion bar before I will tell you that you need one! What is it you ask? Aromatic Escapes lotion bars are a lotion in a solid form. I was like, HUH? But I love this product now that I have tried it.
The lotion bar comes in a tin and almost looks like a bar of soap. What you do with it is just rub it on your hands and it soaks into your skin acting like a second skin - helping to moisturize and protect your hands. Since it acts like a second skin you can wash your hands without washing the lotion away. This product is great for anyone who washes their hands a lot and is so nice because you can just throw it in your purse and bring it with you wherever you go.
I received the lotion bar in the Mango Papaya scent and can you say yummy!!! It's so tropical and again it's another perfect scent for summer.
