You can find candles just about anywhere, from dollar stores to department stores to posh little boutiques. But what’s the difference between the candle that costs ninety-nine cents and $40 boutique, luxury candles? You might be surprised to know there are quite a lot of differences!
Like most things, you really do get what you pay for with candles. Pricey candles, like the well-loved brand LAFCO, are made from quality-scented, hand-poured wax. A high quality candle will burn down evenly, while releasing exquisite fragrance the whole way through long burn times. LAFCO fragrances combine concentrated fragrance oils with exclusive vegan hard waxes that create slow, even burns that enhance the environment. Not to mention their chic appearance! Each candle’s container is a hand-blown glass vessel that is sure to modernize any space. LAFCO candles combine color, texture, and fragrance to enhance your everyday living and entertaining experience!
Still, paying around $40 for a candle might be a hard sell for some. What really gets people to shell out for luxury candles are the scents. While your typical $10 candle might have some fun seasonal scents like Pumpkin Spice or Christmas Cookie in addition to year-round popular-yet-generic scents like Strawberries & Cream, you won’t find anything like that on the shelves of upscale boutiques. A posh candle’s fragrance is painstakingly crafted, usually by a known designer, and uses high-quality fragrance and essential oils to achieve one-of-a-kind scents. Those who want their home filled with an exquisite, memorable, and non-headache-inducing fragrance will easily justify the higher price tag.
If you’re still unsure about these luxury candles, we at Opulence of Southern Pines invite you to stop by our shop and see for yourself! Put posh candles to the sniff test and see what all the fuss is about. Our entire selection is high-end, high-quality, exquisitely scented candles that will make your home smell like heaven and have your guests asking, “Where did you get that?”.
