Air Wick’s Color Changing Candles {Giveaway}

I love candlelight. There’s something about lighting a candle and turning off all the lights in the room that I just find so relaxing. Scented candles are even better because many scents bring back happy memories for me.

When I was introduced to Air Wick’s new color changing candles I was intrigued. These candles are scented but they also bathe the room in a colorful glow while they are burning. I sat down the other night with some coffee to work online and lit my new apple cinnamon scented color changing candle. I watched as the base of the candle turned from white to blue, then green, then yellow, then red, then purple, and back to blue again. Over and over again it went through this color changing cycle. It was seriously the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen a candle do and I still can’t figure out how it changed colors like it did. If you go to Air Wick’s website you can see an example of the colors changing while the candle is burning.

I loved the apple cinnamon scent and thought it wasn’t too overpowering for a small space but still filled the room with just the right amount of scent. They have other scents available as well like Crackling Fire & Log Cabin , Fresh Snow & Sleigh Bells , Lavender & Chamomile , Vanilla Indulgence , Vanilla & Sugar Cookies , and Warm Apple Pie. I have never used a product that smelled like a crackling fire but I think that scent would be perfect for a cold night like tonight.

I used this candle while I was working and relaxing on my couch but I think it would be a great conversation started at a holiday get-together or party. Want to try Air Wick’s color changing candles for yourself? Read on…

Glade Scented Oil Candle and Decorative Glass Holder Review

Recently I had the chance to try Glade’s new line of scented oil candles These candles are each in their own decorative glass holders. I like how the holders are refillable so that if I find a design I really like I can keep it and just buy the refills. I received the lavender & vanilla one and I love how the whole room was filled with the scent. Two and a half hours in and my candle was still burning. The packaging says that each refill burns for approximately two to three hours.

In September and October, Glade held a contest asking people to design candle holders. A winner will not be announced until 2011 but you can check out their design gallery to see the contestant’s designs and give a “thumbs up” to your favorite one. Below is the one I created:
