Seven Day Timothy Jay Candle Giveaway: Day One--The Naturals
People come to the West Coast for a variety of reasons, fame, fortune, not too many people come to end up as candlemakers. But Tim Sullivan is no ordinary candlemaker. A Madison Avenue ad exec for 25 years, Sullivan left behind the East Coast and the corporate world for something deeper. In 1996 he started off making candles in his tiny kitchen in West Hollywood. What started with one scent has evolved into a studio and store where the Timothy Jay candles are lovingly poured and packaged. There is now a separate private label line and a new online store.
When it comes to scented candles it's often the little details that make a difference. The 10 ounce glasses are heated before pouring to make sure that the wax settles evenly. Fragrances and colors are added by hand. One detail that is particularly welcome is the addition of a felt pad to the bottom of the candle so that a hot candle doesn't mar your tabletop. But it's really the scents that are the magic, they are present but not cloying filling a room with a subtle perfume.
Today's giveaway: The Naturals Votive Candle Set--a set of four votive candles. Each votive candle is 3" high and 2" in diameter. The approximate burn time for each votive is 15 hours. Each votive candle is individually wrapped in tissue and packaged in a small box. The four boxes that make up the sampler set are then placed on a matching tray and tied together with a grosgrain ribbon by hand. The Naturals are Flax, Lavender, Havana and High Tea. This set sells for $24.
