COTM: April – DW Home Sun Bleached Denim

I am loving this Springtime weather! A lot of candle lovers favour Autumn and the Christmas holidays for candle scents, and if you love those rich, cozy, gourmands scents, I can agree. But Springtime scents are just so delightful! Fresh, sometimes fruity, clean and just downright pretty scents are in abundance this time of year.

My favourite this month comes from DW Home Candles again. I love the name of this one, it’s so unusual, but so perfect for the scent. It is that perfect summertime, men’s cologne scent. The notes are: Fresh hints of brushed cotton with bright bergamot, zesty lemon, and herbaceous greens over silver sage leaf, earthy patchouli, and cool woody musk.

Such a fantastic array of scent notes, and quite complex. The green and woodsy notes are very present, but not dominating, and the hint of citrus and musk really rounds it out, but it’s the cotton scent that really lends itself to the sunbleached denim name. It’s clean, fresh and cool, yet hot and sunny at the same time. Absolutely delightful.

It burned like a dream, though I tend to find these small 4oz candles from DW Home always do. And the colour! So darn pretty. It’s a pretty mid blue wax in a perfect bright blue glass jar that I will absolutely be saving and repurposing.

I would definitely repurchase, and go for a larger jar next time, so if I work through my stash quick enough I may just be grabbing more of this one. But oh, what a stash I have to work through first! Check out www.dwhome.com for all the current scents.

I’ll be back very soon with a Top Picks post for May, featuring some amazing garden products, so check back soon for that!

For now, with love,
Ellen
