Before the economic down turn property development was in its ascendancy and in order to help sell homes developers would add neat little finishing touches. These included rugs, throws, candles and much more.
Property expert recently gave an interview to the Times discussing the use of scented candles for decoration. Other property experts also went on to say that you should even change your candles to keep in with the seasons. We think this is a great idea and loved the thought of using exotic scented candles in the winter while using cool and refreshing scents in the summer.
The article also discussed the notion that we should be using decorations around candles. By this they mean make the candle the centre piece while wrapping or putting things around it.
So why do so many people purchase candles on the web and what makes companies like Candles To You special? These are questions that we occasionally get asked in our line of work so we thought it might be useful to answer them here on our blog. People can then look at this resource in the future.
To answer this question you really have to look at what is available on the hight street. Numerous stores on the high street sell candles but what ranges do they actually sell. Most of them sell very limited ranges and compete solely on price. They tend to stock tea light candles and candle sticks. They are also often presented in unattractive boxes and no care to attention or detail is given. This is where companies like us make a real difference.
At Candles To You we really care about the products we sell so we look closely at what our suppliers are doing and where they are heading. We also look for the finest scented candles and candles that stand out. Candles on the web should be exciting and be a place where people can get candles that are simply not available anywhere else. So essentially you are getting a wider product range and in essence better quality products online.
We hope you enjoy finding candles on the web as much as we do.
The nation is turning green this christmas by opting to buy environmentally friendly Christmas decorations. More and more companies are producing such decorations and according to the Times newspaper people are even routing back to more traditional decorations. This is great news for companies like ourselves as candles are probably one of the most traditional decorations you can buy.
Green news site Natural News even goes on to say that scented candles are beautiful whether lit or unlit and make wonderful accents to centrepieces, window sills, lanterns and other decorations. They also go onto say that scented candles can bring the festive smell to a home if carefully selected.
The great thing about candles is that they are also extremely cost effective decorations. You can also customise candles with ideas of your own. We think that wrapping green holly leaves around a candle arrangement looks great.

A short extract about from the list can be seen below:
The Mandarin & Lime Basil luxury diffusers are the real head turners and area a safe alternative to candles.
Of course we were delighted by the comments and by being included in such a list. We hope this will help us to grow our reputation and establish ourselves as a leader in the candle retail market place.
We are also a big fan of Heaven Spa and have been following them for some time. We have recently visited one of their Spa’s and given the chance to try some of their products. The Pevonia Skin care range was one that caught our attention in particular and we wanted to tell you about some of their great products. We and several others got the chance to try out the following products.
Well worth a visit. It’s a good day out!
This month we have finally launched our special offers page giving you guys the chance to grab yourself some bargains. To launch the feature we have put on four special offers which see the prices of candle tins and gift sets slashed. We hope you enjoy them and of course there will be many offers to come. You can find the offers on the home page or specials page.
We have recently obtained some new products from our supplier and we will be introducing you guys to them here on our blog. Today we have some excellent new luxury fragranced diffusers to show you guys. As some of you maybe aware we have been selling diffusers for some time now but these new luxury diffusers take the product range to a whole new level. These are going to be the must have products of 2009 we reckon.
This range is in fact so new that there are only two fragrances in the range however we do expect to see more coming out in the coming months. Firstly we have Mandarin & Lime Basil Luxury Diffusers and secondly Moroccan Fig & Cassis Luxury Diffusers. Both of these retail at £12.99 and we are in fact retailing them at much lower than our competitors. This is simply because we want to see how popular they will be and give you guys the chance to play around with them.
The diffusers have a burn time of around 150 hours so you certainly get your moneys worth and they make a real talking point in any room. The great thing about diffusers is that they don’t make use of a live flame so are much safer than a conventional candle. We hope you like the new range and we can’t wait to hear your feedback.
Sorry for the lack of updates guys! We have been really busy sourcing new products for the store but we are delighted to announce that we have two new designer candles in store.

These candles are also used by one of worlds top celebrities. Ok, so a little about the candles themselves.
