Living on the Connecticut Shoreline, I love all things having to do with the beach and ocean. (Really the sound to be technical... but does not matter). Aquiesse has really incredible candles with scents that top the charts. Plus they are all made in the USA and we know how important that is. The perfect small gift for your home is the Shoreline Soy Votive Candle two pack. Also great for teachers gifts to give them something they will actually enjoy. Beautiful elegant packaging of a slide chocolate brown box with cream and blue label sets the tone for the product inside. Two Oversized votives in Aquiesse’s signature smoky brown glass appear as you slide the box open. The scent envelops me and I keep bringing them up to my nose and take a deep breath. This is when I know I am addicted as my arm mechanically goes from counter to nose over and over again. One of the must heavenly scents I have ever smelled in any candle paired with elegant packaging make these products many steps above the competition! 

Living in the Mid-West, being near the shoreline is something that I miss on a daily basis. When I saw the Aquiesse Shoreline Votives, I was ecstatic. Even though I typically think summer when I smell candles very similar to this, I am always burning them throughout the year. Burning soy candles is something new for me and I think I am hooked on them now. The aroma fills my house up better than typical candles. Plus, with these votives being made in the USA, it gets a double vote from me. I am absolutely hooked on the Shoreline Votives: so hooked that I'm going to have to order more. 

Ensconced comfortably in their own embossed box, from The Portfolio Collection, are two precious votive candles. The signature smoky topaz glass container holds a natural soy wax infused with a delicate fragrance. The one in my hand is "Shoreline", and when lit, carries with it a remembrance of summers past. As childhood memories settle in the dust of our busy days, things like the perfect scent will bring them back to the forefront of our minds. Shoreline is a scent that may remind you of sandy beaches, towels drying on the porch railing, digging for quahogs on the shore. All this in a candle? Oh, yes. Scent is one of the most powerful of our five senses, and can change a mood with one drifting , fine, fragrance. This is the votive candle to share with a friend, to place in various spaces of your life, and enjoy, as one would enjoy those far-away simple joys of childhood.
