We have had our signature candle for over five years now, time flies! One of our goals for 2017 was to give the candle a bit of a revamp. We knew our signature scent, based on the perfume Shalimar (one of Kristin's favorite scents), would remain the same. Our priorities were to produce it locally, upgrade the quality of the wax, and give the container a new and improved look.
We connected with a local vendor in Western Massachusetts back in January who helped us achieve exactly what we were looking for. We worked with them to choose the correct wax, perfect the scent and re-design the glass container. Instead of our original clear glass container with a gray label, we opted for completely spraying the glass container solid gray and then stamping the logo in gold.
After a bit of trial and error to get the colors just right, the containers went into production and just last week we got to make another site visit and be part of the filling process. We learned so much and it was such a treat to be so personally involved and hands-on.
The wick is centered and glued to the bottom of the container.
The machine is set on a timer to perfectly fill each container. We just had to press a button and keep a steady hand!
As the wax begins to harden, the wick gets moved to the center. The wax surface is then reheated to eliminate any blemishes from adjusting the wick.
Our beautiful new candle is officially packaged and ready for your enjoyment!
