being phased out by all indication. also being phased out of bath and body works and replaced by white barn. i've read that harry slatkin has moved on to another business venture in Europe (England?) and the candle business doesn't seem to be a priority.

I take pleasure in my 'transformations'. I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.

On the calender in the Insider there are two shows. One is August 30th at 6:00 am ET and the other is September 10th at 2:00 am ET.

Only the Slatkin name is being phased out at BBW, the candles are the same even if they sport a white barn label. I recently bought some of the 3 wicks when they had the last sale and they are the same scents.

Those were the times of the shows from last year too.

If I remember correctly, Patrick was the rep and most items were clearance-priced. They had a few new things, but they weren't anything that couldn't be purchased at BBW with a coupon.

I think the Slatkin & Co. of years past is definitely over. At least on the Q it is.

Actually that's not true at all. I hate when people spread misleading information. White Barn was brought back as a limited edition. Slatkin candles are not being phased out of B&BW.

It certainly doesn't appear that Slatkin is being phased out at the BBW here. I was there over the weekend, and the store has displays of new Fall scents. They are my favorites!

He sold the company to B&BW. Apparently they are only available in their stores.

Does anyone even burn candles anymore with reed diffusers and flameless candle? No soot!

slatkin was purchased by the parent co of bbw. slatkin bought white barn all this happened around 2005 or so .. the candles at bbw harry bendle name it are all slatkin. not sure of the marketing of white barn yet they r not made by the candle maker that made them yrs ago.. so drowning and flaming wicks will exist with all of them at bbw if they havent fixed the problem. his wife has her own brand of candles, very expensive. so why they r using both names for the same scent is confusing. different decorated glass container and lid is the only thing i can think of that separates the 2.

What about the Slatkin oil plug in wall warmers??

Jill made a comment yesterday on Your Home With Jill that her next show would be at the end of September and she would have some Slatkin candles on that show. But of course, don't know if they will be the same old ones, or hopefully some new ones!

I'm pretty sure that Harry Slatkin does not own White Barn. White Barn was under the Limited umbrella.

I burn ONLY GOLD CANYON, NO SOOT, no drowning wicks,,,75% oil so burn even and liquid, cool back to solid and even, wonderful scents that fill up my house and reasonably priced. So much better than slatkin or Yankee

I buy candles all the time, but never burn them. I cut the wax out and put in my warmers.

I've had a few reed diffusers...they are fine for a bathroom or small area.

I have at least 30 flameless candles in all sizes that I use all year round, but of course, they are for light only, not scent. I burn wax in my warmers for scent.

I was in BBW today and the candles smelled the same, so doesn't matter to me what name is on them. Just hoping they go on sale over Labor Day.

Good Morning, mil3!

I am just wondering - How do you cut the wax out of your candles? I started making my own melts out of some candles that weren't burning properly, but I put them on a warmer first and then poured the melted wax into cups. I cooled them and then stored them in Zip Loc bags.

Any tips?

For the Slatkin candles they seem to have pretty soft, creamy wax. Mine comes right out with a spoon or knife even. I just cut/scoop chunks out for my warmers too. Pumpkin Patch...my favorite!

Grade1Teach, I also just use a 3" long thick bladed kitchen knife and carve out a little chunk to use in my melters.

I did the math once and it seemed to me that ounce for ounce, using the Slatkins this way was a little cheaper even than using the Walmart cubes, which I also like and use sometimes. The price I paid for my Slatkins last year would have been 2 for $20, plus an additional generous coupon code. HTH!

Thanks, mallemo! I didn't realize that you could just scoop them right out of the jar. I have several Slatkin candles left from last fall, so I'm going to give it a try. I have THREE Pumpkin Patch candles left! LOL I have a small one, so I'll try that out first. If all goes well, I may just end up buying 3 wick Slatkins and scoop 'em out to put on my melter (by the way - It is 24 watts). I've always loved the scents, but not the burn. This may solve that problem! {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

Thank you for the advice, onlineshopr! As I wrote to mallemo, I'm going to try it out with some of my left over Slatkin candles. I'm kind of excited because if this goes well, then I can start buying the 3 wicks again without having to worry about them not burning properly.

I agree with you - It's most economical to wait for the 2 for $20 sale. I can't wait to start shopping!!

That should be enough wattage to give you a decent scent throw. The Pumpkin Patch wax that I have used in my warmer works great.
