Flaming Fragrances Review and Giveaway!

 After a long stressful day the only thing I want to do is light a candle or incense, take a hot shower and relax.  Aromatherapy really works like a charm!  I also love having my home smell like a fresh summer breeze one day and the next day, a warm apple pie but I have always had a problem finding candles that really fill the room with fragrance.  Incense does the trick but with the ashes, it's a little messier.  Josh also only prefers Nag Champa and won't burn any other kind of incense, the other kinds give him a headache because they're too strong.  Luckily, I met my two new wonderful friends Tammy and her husband Steve, founders of Flaming Fragrances and they showed me how handmade candles can fill a room with fragrance better than any store bought!

What is Flaming Fragrances?
According to their website, "Our mission is simple: to provide the best candles, products and service to our customers.  We take great pride in our company, our commitment to customer service and in the products we sell.  Our online store is designed to provide you with a safe environment to browse our product catalog."
"Flaming Fragrance candles are all handcrafted with our proprietary blend of creamy and scent loaded wax.  Our wax can hold up to 4 times that of other candles!  Our unique formula and process provides a very clean burn and tremendous fragrance throw, as well as burning nearly all the wax to the bottom of the container so very little wax is wasted.  We are very proud to present our candles to you and look forward to being your candle preference for years to come."
Flaming Fragrances don't carry candles they carry aromatic experiences, each one unique.  These handmade candles are strong enough to fill an entire room with fragrance yet subtle enough to not be overpowering to the senses.  You can close your eyes and imagine sitting on the shore of a sandy beach at noon when you light their "Caribbean Romance" candle or opening Christmas presents with the family with their "Christmas Day" candle.  Flaming Fragrances currently features 36 amazing scents.
Besides their candles, Flaming Fragrances has an outstanding customer service.  In fact, I don't think I have had  better customer service shopping anywhere!  Tammy and Steve are amazing! They become your friends in the process, how many store owners can you say that about?  They are passionate about their candles and it makes you glad you did business with them.  Here are some of the beautiful jars candles Flaming Fragrances has to offer: (in whatever scent you choose)
Medium Country Classic Candle $7.19
Stylish White Frosted Candle $7.19
Fabulous Fragrance Melts 6-pack $4.99
My Review
To say that I love these candles or that these candles are my new favorite candles would be an understatement.  In fact, it would be the understatement of the decade!  Josh, who is more of an incense person, loves these candles as well.  They smell incredible!  My new friends Tammy and Steve very graciously sent me 5 candles and 3 Fragrance Melts for us to use to make our house smell fabulous.  I choose the scents Twilight, Summer Love, Romantic Moments, Love Spell Magic, and Day at the Spa (Josh's new favorite) for my candle choices and they surprised me with 3 Lavender Fragrance Melts, which really came in handy a few days later when I had a really stressful day!  As I mentioned earlier, I'm big into aromatherapy and these candles really do the trick.  They are also clean burning which is a huge plus because most candles will clog up air filters with black soot if you burn a lot of them like I do. Their candles are also incredibly affordable!
I have only experienced customer service this great twice before and let me tell you, it's very very rare to find people this dedicated to their craft yet still so thoughtful and kind to the customer, no matter who she or he may be.  I truly consider Tammy and Steve to be new friends of mine and you can't say that about a store owner very often!  I highly recommend Flaming Fragrances to everyone for all of your candle needs.
