My kind of exhibit!

NY Museum Stages First ‘Scent’ Exhibit

Chandler Burr calls his works ‘olfactory art,’ and says he’s not a freak—he just uses his nose more often and more carefully than the rest of us. Blake Gopnik reports.

What a fantastic idea! The very thought stirs my scent loving soul… I wish I was closer so I could attend. Although if I were making real wishes I would wish to share a bottle of red wine with Chandler Burr and talk scent for an afternoon.

I personally disagree with his idea that “a thing must be artificial; it is impossible to create art entirely with nature”—but I understand the point he is making.

I love all kinds of fragrance; traditional as well as all natural.

There is room in my world and my shop for both!
What fragrances move your soul?

Leave us a comment to join the discussion.

For me this fall I am continuing my love affair with Cinnamon.

Blue Moon Candles SALE EVENT is here!

Only once in a BLUE MOON will you find Candles and Perfume like this on SALE for prices like this!  Check our website for details.

We want to celebrate this rare occurrence with limited time Blue Moon Fragrances!
OK…Are YOU ready for the BLUE MOON tonight? We are *SO* excited we are featuring these fragrances and having a great sale starting NOW!

Limited time fragrances:
Blue Moon: Only once in a Blue Moon will you find a fragrance this good! Custom Blended here-you will not find this exclusive candle ANYWHERE else! Strong, sweet, dark and smoky, perfect for fall nights. Rich sweet caramel, infused with a dash of cardamom and a hints of honeyed tobacco pipe smoke. Bellissimo!

Aqua Di Luna:Top notes of lavender, rosemary and menthe are freshened by bergamot. Middle notes of jasmine, geranium, sandalwood, iris and oakmoss lead to bottom notes of musk and ambergris.High Tide: Let the Moon’s pull lure you into this fantastic fragrance… Newly fallen coconuts halved to reveal creamy, sweet perfection!

Blue Mousse: The perfect decadent dark chocolate! Blended intense raw cocoa, a splash of sweet cream and just a hint of torched sugar… drool worthy!

The Blue Hour: The blue hour comes from the French expression l’heure bleue, which refers to the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light at this time of day. Soft Sweet Pea, Blackcurrant for contrast and Bilberries for charm, the deep warmth of Rosewood, gentle Almondwood, richest Sandalwood and French cedar. Transformational.

Full Moon: Almost impossible to describe, this strong and complex fragrance oil has notes of resins, patchouli, vetiver, myrrh, herbs, woods grasses and anise. It has a smoky depth accented with a fresh and herbal top-note, and has unisex appeal. Perfect for dancing in the light of a full moon.

Celtic MoonSpice: A wonderfully fragrant blend of warm spices, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. This reminds me of being snuggled inside a cabin in front of a cozy fireplace on a cold crisp fall night.


What is a Blue Moon anyway?

“O, swear not by the moon, th’ inconstant moon, That monthly changes in her circled orb…” -Juliet, Romeo and Juliet, 2:2:115

The night walked down the sky with the moon in her hand.  ~Frederick L. Knowles

There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.  ~George Carlin, Brain Droppings, 1997

Moonlight is sculpture.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery.  ~Joseph Conrad

Look how the pale queen of the silent night
Doth cause the ocean to attend upon her….
~Charles Best, “A Sonnet of the Moon”

How like a queen comes forth the lonely Moon
From the slow opening curtains of the clouds
Walking in beauty to her midnight throne!
~George Croly, Diana

Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
~William Shakespeare

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!


Doing the Right thing…

Although this post has nothing to do with Candles, it touched my soul and reminds me of the extremes some people will go to, to do the Right thing.  I thought I would share it in the hopes that it would stir your soul as well.

Let us never forget! The world hasn’t just become wicked…it’s always been wicked.. The prize doesn’t always go to the most deserving.

Irena Sendler

12 May 2008 (aged 98)
Warsaw, Poland

During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist.. She had an ‘ulterior motive’.
She KNEW what the Nazi’s plans were for the Jews (being German).  Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger
kids)…She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.

During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.

She was caught, and the Nazi’s broke both her legs, arms and beat her
severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard.  After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected.
Al Gore won — for a slide show on Global Warming.
Later another politician, Barack Hussein Obama, won for his work as a community organizer for ACORN.
Now, more than ever, with Iran , and others, claiming the HOLOCAUST to be ‘a myth’.  It’s imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are others who would like to do it again.  Remember….

Would you take a stand at your own risk if the need arose?  Words for thought…

Candles as a Memorial…

Many of us have lost a loved one and have felt and continue to feel that heartache…I created these Memorial Candles after my Gran & Grandpa passed away. I like to light my Candle and remember happy times I spent with them. We also use these to celebrate Births and Weddings. Our family loves them, so I thought we should make them available to others.

This Candle is for my dad Stanley ❤ .  It is almost empty but you can see how the text is illuminated and the candle burns bright and clean.

Memorial Candles

These candles are available in any color you choose – I like to suggest that you pick something meaningful to you- that is the beauty of choice!  They also are available in tons of fragrances, whatever reminds you of happy thoughts or brings you peace.

Our classic square glass Memorial Candles are  refillable so they never need to be empty,  or you can choose from any of our other candle shapes if you prefer something different.  The text on the candle can be customized or you can use one of our texts.  Candles can also be personalized for Weddings and Births as Celebration Candles~ for any occasion you wish! You can purchase your Memorial Candles now, here at Blue Moon Candles.

There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains.

Here is a link to some AMAZING lanterns they float in Hawaii as a memorial.

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!
