Chesapeake Bay Candles Review and Giveaway

"Influenced by the contemporary designs Mei discovered during her travels in Europe and distinctively different from traditional candles available in the American market of the mid-1990's, Chesapeake Bay Candle was destined to become an instant hit. The very first Chesapeake Bay Candle collection featured stylish pop colors such as mango, lime green, and lavender combined with a unique mottled texture leaving the impression of little snowflakes on the candle finish, pair with exquisite botanical fragrances."


You might remember creator Mei Xu from my earlier blog post about blissliving home

Did you know that in 2010, The White House invited Mei to create a candle exclusively for First Lady Michelle Obama? 



I love candles! It always seems like I can't get enough of them. I love how each one seems to have it's own signature scent and look. Have you ever noticed that lighting a candle always brings some type of peace and tranquility into your life? I love lighting a candle in my bathroom before I take a bath; it always makes me feel at ease and lets me feel as if I'm in my own little spa. Chesapeake Bay Candle are no exception. This candles smell amazing! The have such a modern, classic look to them, and hold their scent perfectly. Each candle comes in it's specific box that describes the scent and features. They have a wide variety of scents that include jasmine mint, orchid guava, bamboo eucalyptus, teakwood cedar, lemon grass verbena, calypso mist, turquoise waters, and vanilla bourbon. 

Not sure which scent is for you? Take the fragrance quiz on their website. 
I wasn't sure myself, so I even took the test! My results were dead on! They said:

You are Cool & Casual
Like a breath of fresh air, you like to ensure your surroundings are as original and dynamic as you are. As your spontaneity sets the mood for adventure, you enjoy life outdoors—from the warm, shimmering sun on your back to the scents of the salty sea, like fragrant driftwood and marine musk with soft hints of sparkling citrus. Curious and charismatic by nature, your optimistic attitude and inquisitive intrigue attracts those around you. Always up for the challenge, you are athletic and energetic and adore transparent, aquatic fragrances like Calypso Mist and Turquoise Waters that reflect your cool and casual ways.

Mostly A's: Simple & Sophisticated; You can appreciate the things in life that are quietly beautiful—the ones others often pass by--which relates to your love of gentle notes and delicate florals, like white jasmine and fresh cut greens. As the voice of reason within your circle, you have a calming effect on people, causing others to quickly trust and admire you. With a tender femininity and stunning, warm radiance, they have good reason to marvel at your genuine sincerity and natural elegance. Like the tranquil undertone of your being, you gravitate toward crisp hints of herbal aromas, such as mint and eucalyptus leaves, as well. Soothing botanic blends like Jasmine Mint and Bamboo Eucalyptus are sure to suit your simple, yet sophisticated personality.

Left comment on both their site and yours on facebook, along with my results of the personality quiz (I got Calypso Mist and Turquoise Waters, as well as Lemongrass Verbena and Teakwood Cedar due to having 3's in both B & C). (E-mail is brokenhearted_fallenangel@hotmail.com)

I was also cool & casual, and although it suits me, those are not often the scents I choose in my home (they tend to have random side-scents like DRIFTWOOD that make it stink.)
