Light the Fire

Light the Fire

Light the Fire by aldome91 featuring soy candles

I’m obsessed with candles. I really am. My roommate, Catherine, and I always have one burning in our living room. After trying a bunch of different types, I have narrowed it down to 3 of my favorites. Al’s Tip: If you want to try a new scent, great places to buy them are boutiques. I don’t really know why, but that’s where I have stumbled across all of these different candles!

Rain by Capri Blue. This one is number one for a reason. It is amazing, with scents of gardenia floral. I found it when I was shopping at Posh in Baton Rouge and fell in love, as did Catherine. Unfortunately when I went back, they had the Capri Blue brand, but not the rain scent. I then looked at stores in Perkins Rowe and the Mall of Louisiana, but I couldn’t find rain. I did, however, find that rain is still being sold online, if you want to try it. I highly recommend it!

French Cade Lavender by Volsupa Candles. This candle is the perfect scent for relaxing. When burning it, anytime I had friends or family over, they always commented on how fresh and great the smell was! I found this at Rodeo in Baton Rouge, and then later bought a larger size at Anthropologie. This scent is a “refreshing blend of French cade wood, lavender, verbena and moss.”

Sauvignon Blanc by Rewined. I got my Rewined candle at Niche in Mandeville. Each is made of a repurposed wine bottle, and the scents are named after, and smell like, each type of wine, red or white! As a wine lover, I thought these were so cool, and the Sauvignon Blanc scent was my favorite. These candles also burn for a long time!


  1. I love Voluspa too. Their scents are amazing! I've been getting a lot of them from -- not spamming, just another candle obsessed blogger :) - Amy

    1. Amy,
      Aren't they just the best? I'm currently obsessed with French Cade Lavender and I've been so hooked that I haven't ventured out to any other scents! Any suggestions? Thanks!
