Description of Product: “Established in 1997 in Spartanburg South Carolina, Bridgewater Candle Company quickly became a leader in the candle market with a reputation for its clean burning candles, full fragranced products and passionate sales team. Bridgewater offers everyday hospitality through fun, friendly, comfort fragrances. From fresh and clean to warm and cozy, these scents create those special moments in life worth savoring. Furthermore, we are committed to sharing this warmth and hospitality with the world because we believe that everyday matters to everyone.
Also, in June 2010 Bridgewater launched the Light a Candle Feed a Child Campaign. Through our partnership with Rice Bowls, a nonprofit that feeds and nurtures orphans in developing countries, Bridgewater is committed to donating 75 cents for each jar candle sold, which goes to feed a child for one day. There is also a Special Edition Candle. For every Special Edition candle sold, Bridgewater donates 5.25 to Rice Bowls, which goes to feed a child for one week. The new Special Edition Candle for Spring 2011 is Frankie’s Fragrance.
Here is a little bit of the story behind Frankie’s Fragrance:
In Port-au-Prince, Haiti, an expectant mother knew she was not likely to survive long after childbirth. She prepared a bag for her child with his belongings and a bottle of her used perfume. She wanted her young son, Frankie, to remember how she smelled. Inspired by Frankie’s birth mother’s perfume, the vibrant rose, ylang and carnations are enhanced with the warmth of vanilla and creamy sandalwood. The special edition candle features a child’s handprint in a commemorative box with Frankie’s personal story. Frankie’s adoptive family hopes this Special Edition fragrance inspired by the perfume, will bring awareness to the many orphans around the world. This will become a part of their “Light a Candle* Feed a Child ™” campaign to fight orphan hunger in a partnership with Rice Bowls. For more information please visit: www.lightacandlefeedachild.com.”
Review of Product: I love the smell of candles burning in the house and so I was excited to try Bridgewater Candles. I tried the shoreline as well as the paradise punch jar candles and also the sachet in shoreline. I’ve never really used sachets but now I’m sold! The scent was strong but not overpowering and I loved how my clothes smelled after being in a drawer with one of the sachets. The jar candles were nicely shaped and go easily with any decor. I think they are less bulky than competitors and look nicer in the room. The scents I tried out were both delightful. Both were great reminders that spring is on its way and were airy and light yet had staying power. Bridgewater Candles has some awesome scents and a really great product. I look forward to ordering more in the future!
