WoodWick® Candles: Caramel Review and Giveaway

With the holidays right around the corner, I have decided to talk about the perfect gift for my women friends and to make this my first giveaway.  It was years ago that I stopped by a close friend of mine.  I was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful aroma that was coming out the front of her house.  I was literally on the door step and could smell it.  I thought my friend was baking something that was making my mouth water.  When I got inside the house to my surprise, I found out that she had a WoodWick® Candles: Caramel.  Yes, you guessed it.  I had to run out and get one of my very own.  For a year, I have had this candle in my house.




Now, they run for about $23.99 but they are worth it.  I've had mine for a year and its just now burning out.  It is going to the very bottom of the candle as well.  It is a 22 oz candle and has a natural wick made from organic wood.  The thing that gets me about this candle so unlike any other is that it reminds me of a crackling fire when it is burning.  The wood wick does it.  My house literally smells like I am making cookies when I am burning it.  It smells like carmel and brown sugar with a hint of french vanilla cream.  The candle burns for 180 hours.  Can you imagine how much you would like having your house smell like that full time?  Its amazing.

As you have probably noticed, I do have a logo for them on the bottom of my page.  I am an affiliate with them now.  I have decided that I need to purchase myself one now to replace mine.  At the same time, I will be giving one away.  They are not supplying me with one.  I want one of you, my readers, to have one so that your house can smell extremely good during the holidays.  Here are the guidelines for the giveaway.

Tami,

Since I love caramel it would definitely be my top pick or anything apple scented. Now if we could just get the two combined!
