Goose Creek Candle Company Giveaway!


When Goose Creek Candle Company contacted me about sponsoring a giveaway on Red Door Home I immediately said yes.  Normally I take some time to make my decision - I am quite selective when it comes to giveaways (only products I would use in my own home) - but in this instance I was already familiar with this fabulous company.   You see not too long ago, Marianne of Miss Mustard Seed hosted a Goose Creek Candle giveaway and I had read about these wonderful candles and company on her blog.  Needless to say I was thrilled!


Goose Creek sent along two candles for me to try – dark vanilla bean and blueberry passion – both from their American Heirloom Collection. They arrived carefully packaged and in perfect shape.
I immediately opened the candles to give them the “smell test” as I am not one who likes really strong scents.  I have to say they passed with flying colors – great scent but not overpowering.  In fact, my kids just loved the blueberry candle and said it smelled like blueberry muffins. Yum!


I put the vanilla candle on my bedroom dresser with the top off and have been enjoying the smell of the candle even when it is not lit.


One of my favorite features of the candles – besides the scent - is the design of the jar and the absence of a big label.  They have a pretty brushed nickel top and the jar itself is simple and elegant.  A great fit for any décor.   In fact, Goose Creek also sells the jars without the candles.


Besides the products shown above, Goose Creek also offers a wide variety of pillar candles, jar candles, warmers, and room sprays in many different scents.  Something for everyone!


The good news is the nice people at Goose Creek have generously offered not one but two candles as giveaways! 

If you would like to win a candle of your own here is what you will need to do to enter:

Be or become a RDH follower and then simply visit Goose CreekCandle Company’s website and leave a comment below telling me which candle you want to win. Easy!

As an added bonus, Red Door Home readers will receive 25% off their order by entering the code 080412.  The code will be valid until the end of the month.

Enjoy your weekend and good luck!

Entries must be received by midnight EST on Friday, August 10, 2012. Two winners will be selected at random and will be announced on Sunday, August 12, 2012.  To enter you must be at least 18 years of age and a US resident.  Although I was compensated for this giveaway, all the opinions given here are my own.

I'm like you Stacy, I don't like a strong scent in my candles. I wind up sniffing a whole bunch when I'm at Hobby Lobby before I buy any. I would choose between the Dark Vanilla Bean or the Linen {which I like in a bathroom}.

I love linen, but am so ready for fall decor, so I'm thinking the "whipped pumpkin"......yummy~
