    candles b&b
  1. Need Red Clove replacement

    Red Clove is my number one top selling tart right now, by far ? I, myself, prefer Flamings Clove 10x over but I can tell you it does not smell like Red Clove at all, unfortunately.
  2. Millennium wax

    I used HTP's per their recommendation on the website and I wasn't blown away but I only used 6% FO. I called them and asked if there was another recommendation and the tech I spoke with on the phone suggested I try CD wicks. That is what she has always used and preferred. I haven't taken the time to test with them or up the FO load, which I thought I might try bumping it to 8% the next time. Let me know if you do choose to order some and if you have any luck. ?
  3. Looking for Peak replacements

    Thank you GoldieMN
  4. Looking for Peak replacements

    Can someone tell me how we know Peaks is closing??? This is terrible! When are they closing or are they already closed? I added Red Clove, Pear Spice and Wild Rasberry. I have never smelled a clove like Red Clove or nearly as strong. To my nose, RE's Honey Bee is exactly the same as Wild Mountain Honey but their Amish Harvest is nowhere near as strong in wax as Peaks' is. ?
  5. Oils from Flaming Candle....yes or no?

    Does anyone rename Bourbon Soaked Raisins? Does anyone have a suggestion for a different name?
  6. Salt Bars

  7. New York Scent?

    Revisiting this thread. Anyone have any favorite FO's?
  8. Facebook Group

    Oh boy, I sure do have a lot to learn!! Thank you Karen. You did clear up some of my questions but I'm pretty hopeless......pretty pathetic for someone who's son is going to college with a scholarship in Software Engineering
  9. Facebook Group

    Can someone explain a FB Group to me? I am completely in the dark when it comes to this stuff. I don't have any social media accounts now. I'm lucky I can navigate my way around this site and read my email ?
  10. May as well post pics, I guess !

    Hehe! Had me fooled! They are very pretty! I love them & I love your color choices. Great job!
  11. May as well post pics, I guess !

    They are so pretty! Pardon my ignorance, but how did you get the blue/turquoise and the purple in the second candle? Did you just pour the purple, let it cool and then pour the blue/turquoise color?

    Your candles are gorgeous!! Can I ask what kind of palm wax that is?
  13. I LOVE Flaming Candle. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite suppliers. I haven't made up my mind how I feel about the Tobacco Caramel. I am looking to replicate a candle I got from Terrain called "Tobacco Bark", which is more woodsy/earthy whereas the Tobacco Caramel is more sweet OOB. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears! Some of the other FO's I got from TFC are: Tarocco Orange--smells sharp and tart. Just what I've been looking for Raw Sugar Mandarin--a sweeter orange--really nice Chamomile--nice. clean, floral, herbal Coconut Caramel--super yummy!!! I smell both the caramel and the coconut. I hope they both flourish in wax Coconut Creme--a great coconut vanilla blend Cedar and Saffron-- love this! Unique, great blend Lavender--this was the free sample-- smells like lavender. I can't stand lavender Fresh Outdoors--very clean and green Rosemary Mint--I can smell both the rosemary and the mint. Nice Does anyone use any of these oils regularly? Does anyone have any favorites from TFC?
  14. What is your #1, VERY favorite FO?

    My all time favorite is Peak's Amish Harvest but my newest Spring obsession is AH's Beachwood Vetiver. I have 3 test candles curing & I can't wait to light them.
  15. Who has the best Pink Sugar?
