    Hi there! I’m lookin looking for a great pear FO that works great in soy wax. I’ve tried PEAKS Bartlett Pear in the past and while it’s good it takes awhile to get a medium HT from it. Anyone tried Filmore’s French Pear? I’ve seen that one.
  2. Need Red Clove replacement

    Ditto on the Winter Wonderful.
  3. Looking for Peak replacements

    JulieB is not the owner of Keystone. Remember Julie was one of the suppliers when Peak first closed that was willing to dupe some of the fragrances. I hope I’m not wrong in my statement.
  4. FAVORITE Halloween / Fall Fragrance OILS

    More fresh/ citrus scents over all. Unique combinations. During fall/ Holiday I sell a lot of Nutmeg + Ginger and Coffee Shoppe. Those are my only 2 “food” type scents. Lots and Balsam and balsam blends.
  5. FAVORITE Halloween / Fall Fragrance OILS

    Testing Toasted Pumpkin Spice from CS today. 464 soy with a 12 day cure and pretty decent already in the living room. I’m just testing for fun. Atlanta just doesn’t get into Pumpkin scents at all. Lol!
  6. FAVORITE Halloween / Fall Fragrance OILS

    So, just throw my two cents in about favorite fall/Halloween fragrances. In the past I’ve used Backwoods honey gingerbread but that was the only scent from them I used. So this year I tested Fillmore’s Nutmeg + Ginger and it has been a great seller for me! I did not change the name at all and I feel it helped because it did not put a specific season to the scent even though it’s technically apart of my holiday collection.

    Anyone try BC's Autumn Warmth? It really sounds amazing!
  8. First Show of the Fall Season!

    Thank you very much! I get them at Lonestar Candle Supply. I love them!
  9. First Show of the Fall Season!

    Yes you are correct! I do very well at that price although 7 years ago when I first started my business I sold the same candles for $15 and gradually I have raised my price to $18. The 10oz is the only size I make and do very well at that size. I do agree with @Jcandleattic if you stick to your price and are confident then folks will buy your candles. Plus people want quality and are willing to pay for it.

    I promise no lies. It's actually rather easy.
  11. First Show of the Fall Season!

    Thank you @Clear Black! I actually did all the writing on the chalkboard sign myself. It's very simple to do. I printed out the phrases I wanted to whatever size and then took chalk and rubbed the entire back of the paper where the writing is. Then place it on your sign where you want it and trace the outline. The chalk will imprint on your surface and then I took permanent paint pen and filled it all in. Super simple but it is tedious. Now I have all my displays set and no need to worry about rain or smudges. Hope that helps! Let me know if you decide to do it.
  12. First Show of the Fall Season!

    Thank you Trappeur! The show is in Midtown Atlanta at the Shriners Temple. Actually a really cool place to have a fall market. No new fall scents this year. They all sell great so didn't need to make anything new. I'm sure next year I'll have some new scents next year.
  13. Is anyone else doing shows this weekend? If so good luck and I hope everyone has good sales! This is my small show display. My space is only 6x5! Lol! Ready with my fall candles!!
  14. Looking for Peak replacements

    I also went to the Facebook page and typed in the same website name and it is correct. Pam is the owner and said that it will take a few weeks to get them all in and listed. Hoping also they have their own Peak category so we know.
