Claire Burke is an incredible place to start filling your home with beauty and fragrance. With scents that seem to waif through the air this time of year and beyond. Slice of Spice, O Christmas Tree, Tropical Flowers, Vanilla Bean, Wild Cotton and our new favorite, AppleJack and Peel. It’s the beauty of bringing scents that remind us memories and generate new beginnings. It’s simply Claire Burke.
When we received our AppleJack and Peel candle, my family oohed and aahed. It is indeed striking. A pristine white candle infused with apple slices, cinnamon sticks and green leaves make for a beautiful display piece. In fact, it was so impressive that has The Divine Miss M helped set up for her Winter Wonderland Tea Party, she disappeared and returned with the Claire Burke AppleJack and Peel Candle to use as the Snowman’s hat in her cupcake centerpiece. When her father pointed out it was square and the base of the snowman’s head was round, she looked at him and said, “Yeah. So?” Obviously she knows a lot about decorating because as the guests arrived, the mom’s took a moment to pick up and smell the candle professing it was “incredible” and “I love this!”
Claire Burke has outdone themselves in all areas. The Peel is an endangered candle at our house. It sits in our foyer, greeting guests. A couple of times my husband has gotten out the Bic, but my children come running begging him to save the candle. He’s tried to explain that if we light it the smell will infuse throughout our home, but they will have none of it. They love the beauty of the candle. They love picking it up and holding it and then inhaling as deep as possible to extract the delicious smell it holds.
Candles are a part of our home. I love their beauty but after experiencing Claire Burke I realize there is more than a color scheme or scent. A candle can be a display of beauty. A conversation starter. Claire Burke is unique and truly adds new charm to our home.
While we have not lit the Claire Burke AppleJack and Peel candle, I don’t think we are the exception. After all, their slogan is decorate with fragrance. This we are doing and I think it adds a bit of charm to our home, and even without a flame flickering in its center, it is a wonderful smell that warrants compliments from nearly everyone who enters our home.
