Now that Halloween is over I am in such a mood for all things Holiday/Christmas related! Even Thanksgiving in our home is sort of Christmas themed, simply because I love it so much! I love the feeling, the time I get to spend with family, the  presents 😉 and of course the  scents and decorations that I get to put up! Ohhhh the wonderful scents! I admit I am such a sucker for Holiday scents and generally stock up so that the magic can last throughout the year! Today I am going to tell you about a fabulous new Holiday scent that has recently came into our lives just in time for my Holiday cravings 😉 and boy oh boy did it fit the bill!

I received a Southern Gem Candle in the scent Christmas Eve, and oh my goodness I am so glad that I did! The scent is absolutely amazing, It’s like all of my Christmas memories transformed into a fantastic scent! I love the Mason jar and the sweet packaging! ( If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE when things come in reusable packaging, especially Mason jars! ) It looks very nice displayed in my living room and makes the whole room smell fabulous! This candle is made of soy and has lasted  for forever! I have been burning it for quite some time, and I am nowhere near being done!  The burn is fairly clean and I really appreciate that, I hate cheap messy candles! On top of all that, these candles come with an extra something! Inside each candle is a gem surprise! My gem appeared not too long after I started burning my candle, it was wrapped in a bit of foil to protect it and then is inside a little plastic pouch inside of the foil. I received a Brazilian Amethyst 10mm Trillion. It is so gorgeous! I haven’t decided what I want to do with my gem yet, but the possibilities are endless! I think these candles would make THE perfect Christmas gift for a special someone, they are available in 12 different fab scents and sell for 31.99. These candles have very high reviews and I can say without a doubt that those reviews are completely accurate! These candles are “gems”! 😉 I have added these candles to my Christmas wish list because I cannot wait to try another!!

I thought the wick length was just right and the candle had a pretty clean burn.
