Aubert & Amandine Candles have become a staple in our new home in Frisco, Texas. There’s nothing more inviting than walking into a house and being greeted by wonderful smells. It’s what makes me feel at home. I’m not much of a cook or baker so candles are where it’s at for me. We recently got married and filled the house with the scent of the new KIEKAN Luxury Sandalwood Jasmine Scented Soy Candle. Our wedding was made extra special by close friends who helped with flowers, decorations, and photos. As a thank you gift, I presented them with candles as well. Now, every time I smell the candle at my home or theirs, I will be reminded of our special day.
I was first introduced to the idea of relating scents with special days a number of years ago while visiting a hotel in Austria. The hotel had it’s own candle scent throughout the property and I was given a candle to take home with me after my stay. Every time I lit the candle, I was immediately transported back to my favorite memories of the hotel. I still associate that smell with my time in Austria and it’s been over half a decade ago.
Similarly, the smell of lilacs remind me of my childhood with my grandparents. When I was a child and lilacs were in bloom, the smell filled the entire house at my grandparents. My grandfather was a massive, imposing man but his love for flowers and crafts didn’t surprise me. He had a gentle, loving heart and he made everyone he knew feel special. He would often cut a slip of lilac and put it in my room. It was a simple gesture but it was the small things that he did that made such a big impact. Now, whenever I’m home and I want to be reminded of my favorite memories with my grandparents, I light my Lilac Scented Aromatherapy Soy Candle and I’m transported back to my mornings sharing pancakes and laughs with them.
For our wedding day, I wanted a unique scent that I didn’t already associate with other memories or special days. It took a lot of candle smelling but I decided to go with the KIEKAN Luxury Sandalwood Jasmine Scented Soy Candle. Jasmine has been shown to have a sedating effect, so it can help reduce anxiety and tension. Sandalwood relaxes and soothes the mind, the Jasmine brings clarity. It’s a distinctive soft, warm, precious smell that fits well with the way Cord calms my heart and relaxes my mind.
In the morning, I lit the candle and let the relaxing aromas of sandalwood and Jasmine fill the house. It wasn’t until late that evening that I finally blew it out. Each year on our anniversary, I will burn another KIEKAN Luxury Sandalwood Jasmine Scented Soy Candle to bring us back to our very special day.
The candle is packed in a beautiful gift box and designed with beauty in mind to fit in with any decor. It comes with a ceramic lid to keep our candles fresh and it’s topped with quality essential oils along with pure vegetable wax. It’s so pretty that it’s easy to use the candles as decor around the house and save them for many anniversaries to come.
The sense of smell is closely linked with memory, probably more so than any of our other senses. Now we have another great way to bring back memories of our wedding day… and a wonderful gift idea for anniversaries to come.
