First, you choose your "intention" for your candle or gift candle. I chose "Courage" since I've been needing some with starting my own web design company and I've been without the security of a corporate paycheck. Other intentions include, "A Harmonious Home," "Passion," "Love," "Healing," "Good Luck," etc.
Then, you pick out of several colors - I was torn between gray and dove, but Dove matches my decor a bit better.
Lastly, you chose the fragrance. They have many fragrances categorized by three scent families - "citrus/fruit," "floral/aromatherapy," and "Nature/SpiceCuisine." Since I like florals and soft, clean scents, I chose "Almond Blossom."
The candle comes with a small booklet explaining your selections in a little more detail, or you can write a personalized gift message.
I was excited when it arrived. It comes in a lovely box which I'll be repurposing to organize some craft supplies.
It is pretty much as I expected. The color is accurate; the candle is actually larger than I thought, and has two wicks. The smell is perfect for me as it's light and delicate. All in all, I think this is a nice "personalized" touch for the home. The scent I chose is best for a bedroom or bathroom, as it's very calming. I'd be interested in trying out one of the spice/cuisine scents to test out in the kitchen.
If you're interested in buying a candle or checking out the customization process, go to lumnique.com. The site is very user friendly. I'd be interested to hear what scent/color combinations you guys pick and how they turn out!
