Re: A Cheerful Giver - Candles and Accessories

I finally received all of my Cheerful Giver Zulily order except for the apple and berry candle rings, which I ended up cancelling after waiting much longer than expected.  I may get them later. 

 

Orange Cinnamon Clove in the 26 oz Cheerful Home glass jar with clear glass lid, in the black metal holder, smells really nice.  I like how the orange presence adds another layer to the spices.  I really like the jar, too, and will keep it to re-use in some way. 

 

Bayberry in the Mama Jar--I didn't know what to expect since this is the first bayberry candle I've ever smelled.  I am so pleasantly surprised.  Along with what I assume is the bayberry scent, I detect a slight sweetness and a powdery note, which is wonderful.  I don't usually tolerate any Christmas greenery candles.  In comparison, I think of this bayberry as similar to those yet different, milder in a good way, but definitely highly scented.  I think I will enjoy this year-round. 

 

I had no problems with the burning of the scents above, but as with almost all of my candle purchases, I also scooped out some of their wax with a knife and melted it in my electric wax melter, and I think they both smell even better that way. 

 

I also tried the Papa's Pumpkin Pie melts.  I agree with others that it is nice and spicy with no sweetness at all.  I would have liked it better if it had a sweet presence instead of mainly spice, but I've found I can mix it with other wax scents and alter it or sweeten it, so it won't go to waste.   

 

I would like to also try the Lemon Butter Pound Cake and Lemon Blossoms.  I have not seen Almond Butter Pound Cake on Zulily, but that is a must try for me. 

 

I have tried the new Slatkin Homeworx 3-wick candles.  Of the few scents I've tried from both Homeworx and A Cheerful Giver, I think that the Homeworx candles are a bit stronger and different, perhaps more complex scents, and have much softer wax.  Both brands have produced a full melt pool for me and appear to burn clean.  HTH.

I chopped up my Honey Pear that was in the pail jar and am using it in my wax melter as well.  When I first burned it, I had it on a counter that has a slight slant to it and didn't realize until it burned for a few hours that it was tunneling.  I gave up trying to get it straight again and just chopped the thing up. 

 

I agree with you that it burns even nicer and stronger as a melt.

@SHOPR~ thanks for your post!Smiley Happy I have most all of those you mentioned, except for Lemon Blossoms. I'll have to add that one to my wishlist because if it's anything like Lemon Butter Pound Cake, it'll be delightful. 

 

I also love Orange Cinnamon CloveHeartand especially around this time of the year they burn almost continuously. Love too, those larger jars in the black metal carrier...really nice to use afterwards like you mentioned.

@LIG1  I bought Lemon Blossoms last year and love it!  I also bought the Orange Cinnamon Clove last year and love it for this time of year.

 

What do you do with the metal candle holder?  I have a Balsam Fir from last year, will continue to burn it this year, but Bayberry is what I burn in the living room during Christmas and before as I decorate, while the Gingerbread is what I use in the kitchen.

@mousiegirl~ If you're talking about the metal candle holder like this one below that comes with the candle~ I just keep the jar it in and use the empty candle jar for little things around the house. 

 

I will say though, I've had a couple of these metal holders to break. So because I weave baskets, I kept just the swinging handle and weave it into the basket as the handle. It doesn't swing or rotate, but looks great standing up like any other handle I've used. 

 

I'm glad to hear that you love the Lemon Blossoms! I'm going to be looking for it when I see that Zulily has another Cheerful Giver event. Thanks for letting me know your thoughts! Heart

@LIG1  Oh, I didn't remember this, I was talking about the metal cans with pictures on them.  They are cute, but I can't think of what to do with them when the wax is gone.

 

Wow, you weave baskets, I love baskets.  One year, decades ago, I went on a basket shopping spree.  I bought some huge without handles except on the sides, used to use them for tall plants, but now am using them for whatever, lol.

 

I have some large wide shallow that I used to display the gingerbread men and large shaped cookies for animal charities events and for DD's school parties, so many things baskets can be used for.

Re: A Cheerful Giver - Candles and Accessories

I also received my banana nut bread candle.  It smells so perfect and delicious.  I have not burned or melted it at all because I may give it as a gift.  The more I think about it, I'll probably keep it for myself.  LOL

 

There are quite a few A Cheerful Giver candles on Zulily today.  I almost bought the almond butter pound cake mama jar and the lemon butter pound cake papa jar, but I need to stop buying myself things until next year.
