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.
I was very lucky to receive some candles from Bridge Water’s to do a review on! In my house I have candles burning often, I love the smell and the coziness of candles! I was very excited to get the opportunity to do a review on Bridgewater’s candles to say the least!
I received a Frankie’s Candle, which you read above the story behind this candle! I have to say it touched my heart so deeply to read the story and know that this candle had such an amazing story behind it! I love that the candle had his little hand print on the outside of the candle, and each time I light it I think of the wonderful story! The scent is A Mother’s Love, which is nice and light, and has such a fresh smell to it. I love that the net proceeds of this candle will feed a child for 1 week! What a great way to help support a child in need, and then every time you go to light the candle you can see and remember the gift that you gave to help feed a child!
I also received a Paradise Punch Votive Candle, along with a Scented Sachet of Paradise Punch! This is a new scent that Bridgewater’s is offering! I have to say this scent is amazing!! It is one of my favorites that I received. It has such a nice Spring scent to it, and it sounds just like the name Paradise Punch. It has a nice strong smell that helps fill your house with tropical fruit smell! The votive candle can last up to 15 hours, that is a long burn time for a smaller sized candle. This candle would be great to have lit when you have a get together at your house or to have a nice fun and fresh fragrance for your home!
Last but not least, I received a Shoreline Jar Candle, to test out! This blue colored candle has a nice clean, airy fragrance with citrus and tropical florals! It really makes me feel like I am on the shoreline in my chair soaking up the sun rays! This candle can burn up to 65-85 hours!! That is an amazing amount of time for a candle to burn, when you use it properly of course! I love the jar that it came in, it really is so beautiful, it would make a great gift for a friend or family. This candle also feeds 1 child for 1 day! I truely love how Bridgewater Candle Company goes over and beyond some other companies and takes pride in their candles, and helps children in need. To me this is a company I share about, and encourage other to support the cause behind these amazing candles! Bridgewater Candle Company has gained a new customer for life, which is me! So if you get a chance to check out their site, or if you purchase a candle I would love to hear about it, and know how you enjoyed their candles!!
