What's Happening In The Next Few Months
I have a lot planned in the next few months, including a brand new website design, an improved and a more professional product appearance, an Autumn and Christmas range and an addition to the fragrance range! If you don't want spoilers, then don't read ahead. However, if you continue reading, I go in-depth of all things coming!
A New Website Design
I have hired a very talented individual who has re-designed our website! Not only does it look cleaner, and more professional, but it also runs a lot smoother, making it easier for you to find my products!
improved candle appearance
When I first started this business, I thought that I wanted a different colour for each candle. However, this does come with a few struggles! One of them being colour matching. Because I use dye flakes, the weight of them is very temperamental and if I add one to many flakes, the colour can drastically change - this is why, in the near future, all my candles will not be coloured. This has been the hardest decision to make with the new changes, but I don't want to disappoint you and future customers with colours that possibly don't match the pictures. Being an eco-friendly candle maker, it's also a real battle between disappointing customers with bad colour matching and wasting a batch of candles because the colour is different to what's advertised. If you love the colours, I am deeply sorry about this change and I hope that you continue shopping with me.
The second change of the candle appearance that I'm making, is extra sizes. I will be launching four more sizes of candles:
Tea Lights - with a burn time of approximately 3 hours, our set of 6 tea lights will help light up your home and leave your room smelling beautiful. Not only will I be selling tea lights in every scent, but I will also be selling them unscented to use with wax burners.
9cl Candles - my 9cl candles will be sold individually, or as a trio for the perfect gift. With a burn time of approximately 11 hours per candle, you will be able to choose from all of our scents, as well as being able to mix and match different scents if buying as a trio!
30cl Candles - with an extra 10cl worth of gorgeous smelling wax, my 30cl candle will be bigger than my original 20cl candle for those who want an extra time of beautiful smells. With approximately 45 hours of burn time, you won't be disappointed.
50cl Candles - now for the biggie! A three-wick, 50cl candle in all scents we have to offer. A real statement piece for any room, especially when it comes with an approximate burn time of 95 hours.
I am still working on the pricing of these new sized candles, but all will be revealed very soon! If you would like to reserve any of the new sizes, please give me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last, but not least, I may be changing the candle glass. It is still yet to be decided but the glass may be changing for a more professional and luxurious appearance. They will either be matt black, or frosted white.
Autumn and Christmas
It seems that both Autumn and Christmas are both approaching very fast! 2020 really has flown by. I wanted to tell you all about our new Autumn and Christmas range before I release them!
The Autumn line will be released mid-September, with three new scents.
Apple and Cinnamon - A nostalgic scent that evokes pleasant memories of the past. A rich blend of cinnamon, apple and nutmeg, with a base note of sweet and juicy plum. Truly an inviting and warming scent.
Spiced Mocha - My Spiced Mocha is a perfect, mouthwatering blend of fresh warm coffee beans, cocoa and cardamom which is great for any coffee lover. A truly characteristic and comforting scent.
Lavender - Lavender seems like a bit of an odd choice for an Autumn addition, however, seeing as we had a lovely Summer, with warm weather and glorious sunshine, I thought that I would add lavender to my Autumn range as a reminder of the beautiful Summer that has just passed.
Six new scents will be added for our Christmas which I am extremely excited to release! Each scent offers something completely different, and there will definitely be a scent perfect for you, your family and your friends.
Christmas Pine - A scent that evokes the smell of fresh Christmas Trees, with the main scent of a Siberian pine tree, with hints of pimento and clove - A true Christmas smell.
Frankincense and Myrrh - A luxurious, mystical and oriental scent that combines frankincense, myrrh, fig, luxurious spices and bergamot.
Mulled Wine - An absolute classic. Exactly what it says on the tin!
Salted Caramel - A mouthwatering scent packed full of scents of caramel, salted butter, brown sugar and vanilla.
Winter Spice - As soon as you smell our winter spice, you'll be transported to the festive period. A soothing combination of orange, clove buds, cinnamon and tonic.
Chocolate Orange - Sweet and delicious! A perfect blend of dark chocolate, orange and vanilla to create the classic Christmas treat!
I am extremely excited to be releasing all these new candles! The Autumn range will be released (hopefully) mid-September, whilst the Christmas range will be released mid-October!
My New Product
Everybody loves a great smelling home, but there are some people who don't like to light a candle. So that is why I have decided to make and sell reed diffusers!
They will each be 100ml to start off with, in a beginning range of five scents (still yet to be decided). Each reed diffuser should last 3-4 months.
They will be in a matt black bottle, decorated with black fibre reeds (which are smart so you don't need to keep flipping them) and a beautiful label across the front.
Well, there you have it! These are my updates for the next few months, and I hope that you're as excited for them as I am!
