The Bergamot Tobacco Candle

My Archipelago Bergamot Tobacco Soy Candle (whew, that's a mouthful) arrived on Tuesday and I love it! I read about this candle online and in Southern Living or Garden & Gun - can't remember which one. I was intrigued by it and after reading reviews from buyers, as well as store owners who say it's one of their best selling candles, I had to try it.

The scent is wonderful - somewhat musky and masculine, but there's a sweetness to it also. I have to admit, I was a little worried that it would smell like Hubbie's cigars - tobacco and all. But, as he was enjoying a stogie on the porch the other day, I lit the candle and the scent took over. Not what you would expect. Very pleasant!

...and Bergamot is said to attract material wealth! You know about so many great companies to shop from that I've never heard of. Loved the 'Barn Bag' post.

Yum. I love the smell of Bergamot. I believe it's what they use to scent Earl Grey tea?

You have to try the pomegrante citrus... It is wonderful! I think I have gone through about 4 of these so far. The smell is just devine; very clean smelling and not to sweet. Although they can be pricey, they are the best candles! I love Archipelago Botanicals :)
