On the House: Blissliving Home Candle Giveaway!

After the last giveaway, the great folks at Blissliving Home contacted me to do another giveaway. This time? Amazing soy wax filled glass jar candles. The candles are by Chesapeake Bay Candle which is a local company and sister company to Blissliving Home! Nothing better than great stuff made right here in our backyard.

They sent me two candles to "taste" test and I have to say, they are pretty amazing. Gorgeous, fragrant (but, not too much), and elegant. Once I ripped open the lovely packaging, I immediately went to put them in their place. One went into the living room:

The other found it's place in the kitchen:


Oh, did you pick up that I said candles earlier? That's right, I get to pick EIGHT winners who will each get to choose one of the 7oz filled candle of their preferred scent. Pretty great, right?

How do you win? Go check out their candle line here and post a comment on this post telling me which scent appeals to you most! You have until Wednesday August 5th at Midnight to post. I'll choose the winner at random and announce the winners on Thursday August 6th!

Good luck!

Hey Benny,

The amber vanilla hazelnut and the lily orange blossom candles appeal most to me. I imagine the first smelling like freshly baked cookies and the second just sounds so refreshing and calming. I hope I win! Do I get to choose if I do?? =) Have a nice day!

I think the lily orange blossom sounds wonderful!

These are beautiful candles. I love the tree motif. I would choose Lily Orange Blossom because I love the scent of lilies, they remind me of my wedding.

Lily orange sounds so fresh and fun!
And BTW, I've never seen your blog before, but I'll definitely try to check it out : )

Candles are so hard to pick out online. I'm going to go with the Sheer White Musk, although the "musk" part kinda worries me. My 2nd choice would be the Lily Orange Blossom. I LOVE clean, crisp scents, think fresh laundry or newly cut grass. I hate vanilla (I know. I'm weird) and sweet smells. Thank you (& them)! Very cool giveaway.

Honey Lemon Cream sounds fabuslous.

Chesapeake Bay Candles are by far my favorite.. I live in Atlanta, and Kohl's Dept. store sells them, and it's the only candle I buy anymore!
