[Apple, Lemon + Lilies] Candle
Your day just got sweeter!
Why Is It Burn-Worthy?
Let me start by saying I'm super excited to be able to carry Celia Loves here at DVG. They're the creators of some of my favorite candles, and they just so happen to be based in beautiful Melbourne, Australia. Unfortunately, the shipping fees to get a candle from the land down under aren't nearly as pretty. Fortunately for you guys, these international candles finally have a 2nd home here in America, specifically at DVG. Now we can all see what the hypes about!
Celia Loves simply doesn't miss when it comes to sweet and fruity fragrances, and this limited edition candle is yet another example of that!
If I'm telling the whole truth, had I only read the fragrance description, this would've been a candle I'd pass on; like WTH are "leafy greens", are we talking about kale, spinach, collards??? But now, having actually burned this candle, I can say this unique blend plays really well together and luckily smells nothing like a green smoothie.
Instead, it reminds me of candy and champagne, but not in an obnoxious or cheesy kind of way. I also picked up on the crisp mimosa-like notes, which surprisingly create an aroma that's both creamy and soft. Up until this point, I wasn't sure if something could be crisp AND creamy, but I guess there really is a first for everything.
This Candle Is Perfect For You If...
Looking to add some sweetness to your day? This will put a little pep in your step with zero calories & no added sugars.
In terms of size and scent profile, I'd selfishly keep this as a bedroom candle, but if you have a home office that needs a fun & fruity pick-me-up, that space will definitely work too.

Candle Sizing Guide
5 oz. or Smaller
These candles perform best in areas that are small or that are in your proximity, such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or on your nightstand.
6 oz. - 10 oz.
These candles perform best in medium sized enclosed areas, such as a bedroom, home office or even a spacious master bathroom.
11 oz. or Larger
These candles perform best in larger spaces such as kitchens, living rooms, or master bedrooms.
Single Wick vs. Multi-Wick
In addition to candle size, wicks matter too. Typically, a single-wick candle performs better in a single room, while multi-wick candles are better suited for multiple rooms or open floor plans.
Candle Care [Tips You Should Know]
1) Trim Your Wick
Before each burn, you must trim your wick to 1/4 inch. This stabilizes the flame, which helps prevent soot/smoke and wick mushrooming, creating a safer, cleaner & better burn.
2) The Pool Rule
Before extinguishing your candle, you should allow it to burn long enough to completely melt the entire surface of the wax. This is called a full melt pool and it's the best way to prevent candle tunneling. Tunneling happens when you have wax that doesn't get melted, so it continues to cling to the sides of the vessel, creating a tunnel effect the more and more you use the candle. It's a waste of wax and should be avoided if possible.
3) Burn Responsibly
Make sure you place your candle in an area that is at least a few feet away from drapes, curtains or other flammable objects.
When burning candles near kids or pets, make sure it is out of reach for them.
Always keep an eye on a burning candle and never leave the house when a candle is lit.
Candles are not meant to be burned for longer than 4 hours. Do not leave it burning all day and be sure to extinguish any candles before going to sleep.
Once a candle is down to its last 1/2 inch of wax, the candle is done. Continuing to burn a candle beyond this point may cause the vessel to crack and is considered hazardous.
