Tickle Your Nose Giveaway

OK I'll admit it, I'm a candle whore. 

I have a stock pile of them at home and that's because on crisp fall days and cold winter ones the first thing I do when I get home from work is light a candle.  There is something about the soft flicker and the soothing scents that make me unwind and relax.

I'm always on the hunt for new candles to add to the stock pile.  Of course packaging counts, because lets face it we all like pretty things.  Enter Paddywax, my new love. 


They have everything I love- amazing scents, the perfect packaging, and lots of choices.  The candle that I have been lighting for the last few nights is Pomegranate from their new Winter Garden Collection and it's delish.

 (excuse the dark photo, it was dark out when I took it. Speaking of dark, don't you hate that its getting dark earlier and earlier these days? Well I hate it)

Back to the point of this post, candles. 

Because I love Paddywax so much and I want you all to love them too, they have sweetly agreed to give one of my readers a $50 gift certificate to their site.  Woohoo!

Lets review some of my favorites

Journey of the Bee Collection
I just love the little bee image on the glass- it's too cute.  And what I also love is that when the candle is buh-bye you can reuse the glass.


Garden Crush Collection
Beautiful colors, amazing scents- there is not one bad one in this collection, they all smell great.


Eco Collection
Soy-based inks, hemp twine, recycled paper- this is a wonderful planet friendly candle.

They have diffusers too- for those who aren't obsessed with candles like me these are perfect for you!

There are so many more where these came from too.  Want your own candles or diffusers to tickle your nose?


Here's how to enter for the $50 Gift Certificate to Paddywax:

1. Make sure you are a follower of EverythingLEB

2. Head over to Paddywax and let me know your favorite collection and/or what you would spend the $50 on.


BONUS - If you blog or tweet about this give-away come back to enter again.

 *Remember anyone can enter you don’t need to have a blog to do so- but please leave your email address in your entry so I can get in touch with you if you are the lucky winner.


Giveaway will end October 6th @ midnight EST.  Good Luck!!



PS- You can also follow Paddywax on Twitter and Facebook for their latest updates!

I am a candle freak too! I must say this was a hard decision but I love the "Garden Crush Collection." All of their beautiful colors really caught my eye. These would make excellent hosting gifts for shower hosts for my upcoming wedding in June.
Thanks!

Love me some good, scented candles. I'd have to go for the Eco Collection, specifically verbena & lemongrass, bordeaux fig & vetiver, pomegranate & currant, and thyme & olive leaf. They all sound delicious. :)

KSK said...

Such a cute site...was very hard to choose, but I think I'd go with the Bergamot Cassis from the Classic collection since a) it's orange and b) I love the smell of Bergamot! kylestandeferknight at gmail dot com

Krista said...

I love the Eco line...cucumber and mint is one of my favorite combos, so might have to go with that.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

I am a follower :)

Erin said...

I would choose any thing from the winter garden collection. I need things like candles to get me in the mood for the holidays when its December and 80 degrees in Texas.

In the Tweeds said...

Awesome giveaway! I'll take anything fig scented!

Becky@Tea Party said...

I love candles year round, but the winter time is a definate must!

A Wedding Story said...

Paddywax is my favorite candle company ever! I used to sell it at a boutique I worked at and the Olive Tree scent is so fab. I also love their Tangerine Clove and New Mown Hay! Awesome giveaway!

kayduh said...

The Eco Collection looks very cute. The pomegranate or fig scents sound nice for winter.

Liz G said...

Mmm! I can't decide between Pear in the Winter Garden collection, or Snow in the Woodland collection. These all look scrumptious!

Laura said...

I love candles! But always forget to light them so I think the classic diffusers would be best for me!

Ms. Bright said...

I love Paddywax candles and diffusers. Typically, I get the Fig scent. But I'm dying over the "journey of the bee" collection! I use the bee as my own personal emblem!

I already follow you, duh.

OH! Have you seen that chair that Starfish and Sundresses just posted?!!?! You will die!

Saara @ GEORGE Interior Design said...

I'm never that into giveaways, but I WANT to win this! :) I think I'd go Eco, although they all look amazing!

Calley said...

I've never seen these candles before, thanks for sharing. I love the look of the Journey of the Bee collection - all of the scents sound divine!

jenna @ alittlebleu said...

i'd be all over the "Classic Line" mint mojito sounds like it's calling my name. :)

kgrutty said...

Now that the weather has turned, I'm coveting some new candles for fall and all the glorious holidays around the corner.

pve design said...

mandi@interiordesignmusings said...

Too fun! I would definitely get the diffuser. They have the best overall scent. They fill a room, but do not over power it.

Rachel said...

It's finally cooling off enough that I want to start lighting my candles at night! And nothing is better than a "holiday" scented candle (IMHO) - so I'd get the Wassail scent. Two, actually, with the $50! :-)

Catherine said...

I love the Journey of the Bee collection. And I LOVE LOVE candles all-year round!

samia said...

Are you kidding I am a sucker of cnadles as well.. adn the lovely image you portrayed of candles in the autmn on coming back home. love the ritual.. will start than soon as well..

Leighton said...

I'd choose Thoreau and Whitman sents from the Library collection. Fall makes me want to curl up with a great book and I love the packaging!

Chic Coles said...

I think I have the same obsession with candles that you do! I just love Paddywax...their classics are exactly that classic and smell amazing!

I'm a follower!

Katharine Fuchs said...

The Journey of the Bee is the best! My two favorites are Wild Blakberry (that scent is seducing!) and the classic Rose scent. I have both in my house but they are down to the bottom!!!! I will do a blog post!

TWA said...

what a fabulous giveaway, I was just thinking the other day how I would love to have some new candles for the fall, If I win I would get both the orange blossom and the wild blackberry from the bee collection (also love the glass) then the bergmot cassic from the classic collection. I also just became a follower of your blog, but I have been reading for a while, LOVE IT!

Averill said...

Oh I love candles. Can't get enough really. Their library collection looks lovely -- and I love the names!

SC said...

I would get the Journey of the bee line in the Rose scent. How sophisticated!

Penelope said...

I love the Library collection :) I have the Thoreau travel tin and it smells sooo good. I'd love to buy some of the larger Library collection candles, especially the Jane Austen one. The Journey of the Bee candles also look lovely.

I follow. I would get the Mint Mojito diffuser from the classic line if I were lucky enough to win.

New Mown Hay got me hooked on Paddywax several years ago, after a chance encounter at an Anthropologie. I'm dying to check out their library collection, so that's where my $50 would go!

It's difficult to choose a favourite, but I think mine would have to be the Peony scent from the Garden Collection.

I love the packaging of the Journey of the Bee collection, and since it's fall, I'd definitely order the rose scent, since they're no longer blooming in Chicago!

Jeannine @ Small and Chic said...

I love fresia, so I'd probably try one of the bee candles in that fragrance. The jars are so beautiful...I'd have to repurpose them!

Jeannine @ Small and Chic said...

I LOVE the new Library collection and have been burning the Poe scent regularly in my family room area. BEAUTIFUL scent!! It is heavenly. If I won the giveaway I would buy the Dicken's fragrance from the Library line and also a Sweet Pea candle from the Garden Crush line since that is my favorite tart & tangy scent! :) Love it!!!
