In an age where our lives depend on electricity, candles might seem obsolete to some, an unnecessary throw back to a previous age. And yet these simple creations have endured for centuries and even enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years.
The soft flickering light of a candle adds a touch of warmth to any room. Lighting a candle is the easiest way to create a relaxed and intimate atmosphere.
The subtle fragrances that more often than not accompany ‘luxury’ candles have done much to add to their appeal.
Women in particular almost invariably enjoy fragrances and sweet smelling things:
Perfumes, lotions, flowers, soaps… and candles.
When it comes to gifts, one can rarely go wrong with scented candles and related fragmented products. They are the ideal little luxury one not might buy for oneself, but not as personal as personal beauty products one might apply to the skin.
Specialist boutique Candles Unlimited has perhaps the largest selection of sizes, styles and scents of candles and related accessories on the island. With fragrances to suit any style and sizes to accommodate any budget, it’s a must when looking for gifts, Christmas or no Christmas.
Corporate Gift Programme
In anticipation of the festive season, owner Toni Green has launched a Corporate Gift Programme, offering a range of benefits to firms signing up for the service, all of which are designed to make the business of giving hassle-free.
“When you’re looking to make an impression with your employees and clients, nothing says ‘you deserve the best’ like a gift from Candles Unlimited,” says owner Toni Green.
The Corporate Gift Programme offers significant discounts to those purchasing in larger quantities:
15 per cent on purchases of $500-$999
20 per cent on purchases of $1000-$2499
25 per cent on purchases over $2500
But this service is not only about discounts, it’s about making gift giving easy and hassle free: Those signing up for the service will receive the services of a dedicated personal shopper who will be able to make recommendations and provide information on all the available products; gift baskets containing an array of products can be made up or for those who might have firmer personal tastes, a gift certificate is the ideal way to give them the flexibility to get something they genuinely like. A free delivery service adds the final touch to a hassle-free shopping experience.
Candles unlimited also offers wholesale prices on all their products to restaurants, hotels, salons, spas and other large companies on the Island and passes on the bulk shipping discounts.
Candles Unlimited specialise in the Yankee Candles, which are available in a vast range of fragrances. Large pillar candles, candles in jars, votives and floating candles are just some of the options. A range of candles from Tag, Primal Elements and Scents of Nature are all available as are all manner of fragrance diffusing accessories:
Reed diffusers, car scents, room sprays and potpourri.
The choice of fragrances is constantly changes, with new ones being added with every shipment and a range of organic, botanical soy candles will soon be added.
“I want people to know we can and will work with the customer and their needs. I truly believe in listening to my customers and what they want to see and need. As my sign at the shop says, “Our Customers are our Pride ad Joy”, and it makes me happy to see them happy,” says Green.
“I am working on getting soy candles for those who are eco friendly. I also want to being in more accessories. We can never have enough of them and they seem to fly off the shelf just as quick as I put them on.”
Each month a different fragrance is selected as the fragrance of the month. Customers can buy one candle in the fragrance and receive a second at half price. Alternatively two pillar candles are available for just $30.
