I started selling candles on a whim. An associate of mine had decided to sell out of his small distribution business in Nashville, to get a full time job with better healthcare because his 4-year-old daughter had cancer. So, I went over to his warehouse to pick up some stuff and happened across a case of candles. I went ahead and took those too, thinking they would make great gifts for Mama and Angela. I left them in my car overnight and when I got in the next morning, I was blown away with the smell. It was amazing. So, I decided I would try to sell some at my next pop up event. They sold. That simple.
Next thing you know, I'm in meetings to create my own scents. Then, all of a sudden I was in the lab with Debbie, combining oils to figure out what best fit the direction I was going. Incrementally, the candles have creeped in and become a major part of the Riley/Land Collection. The newest in the Life of Riley assortment harkens back to that first candle. It's a remix, if you will, of Due South, my original best-seller, with elements of amber, oak moss, sage and orange.
If you haven't purchased candles from RLC before, here's what you get: a hand-poured soy wax candle with a lead-free wick that has an 85+ hour burn life. I have partnered with a lovely lady named Ella who has created a fire engine red drawstring canvas bag to house the candles, making them ideal for gift-giving.
Received this candle as a Christmas gift - love it! The layered scents smell great. I also like that it burns evenly-not like other candles that leave craters in the wax. Will make a perfect gift for my friend who's moving out of state.
