  1. It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas….

    Posted on

    Ah, my favourite time of the year. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a total summer baby who hates the cold, wind, rain and dark nights - but there is something about those winter nights spent hugging a hot chocolate whilst snuggled on the sofa wrapped up in the softest of fleeces whilst the festive, indulgent aroma of Christmas flickers from a lit candle.

    christmas 2017_5_smlHere at Kiss Air, it will come as no surprise that the winter months are our busiest. Our candles make the perfect treat for yourself, last minute stocking filler, personalised gift for that someone who is always hard to buy for or secret Santa pressie for the office newbie you pulled out of hat and have never even spoken to!

    So we are about to fulfil all your treat, filler and pressie needs by spending weekend after weekend at different Christmas fairs bringing the scent of Christmas to you. And boy, do we have the some scents of Christmas for you….

    Our candles smell exactly as they say on jar, so when we call a candle Gingerbread…. it smells just like fresh from the oven gingerbread! And you guys agree! We like to vary our Christmas range bringing in new scents but with this candle being the top Christmas seller for the past 4 years, we simply had to bring it back again!

    Also, back for its second year in the Kiss Air Christmas range is our fabulously unique, mouth-watering delicious Chocolate Orange! Everybody’s favourite Christmas choccie literally flew off the shelves last year, selling out before our last event, so you’ll be happy to hear we’ve made sure we have extra stock for this year. 

    Next up is a brand new fragrance which could actually be my favourite of all. Anyone who knows me knows I’m partial to a biscuit or two (…. or the packet!) and our Christmas Biscuits candle whacks you in the face with freshly baked biscuits… Malted Milk biscuits with a hint of nutmeg in my opinion, and who doesn’t love a Malted Milk biscuit?! I know Santa does! Mum always used to leave Santa a few Malted Milk biscuits next to his glass of milk and carrots for the reindeer on Christmas Eve, and the next morning they were always gone!! *

    No Christmas range would be complete without the “marmite” of all Christmas scents, Christmas Tree. You either love or hate this one but we’ve tried and tested many variations and we believe we’ve found the perfect earthy, woody, pine scent that is more tree than disinfectant!

    And last but certainly not least, another newbie to the collection is Festive Cranberry. Perfect for those traditionalists who would prefer a more subtle, fresh and festive aroma of rich, fruity cranberries. So far this one has gone down very well and it’s no surprise, it really is Christmas in a jar!

    brussel sproutWe also have a new addition to Christmas this year. Our totally humorous “….because it’s brussel sprout season” tumbler candle. We all know that one person who overdoses on the sprouts to not only bring down the tone of the day, but also prompts the obligatory scented candle to come out of hiding! We also have our “….because (insert name) farted” personalised candle which really is a perfect pressie for the farter in your life, and the sufferer of those said farts!!

    We added events on our Facebook page for all the Christmas fairs where you’ll find a Kiss Air stall this Christmas, so do check them out and pop along if you can.

    Until next time, have a scent-sational Christma!

    * Okay, okay! It was me! I ate the biscuits! I’m sorry mum! I used to creep out of bed, tiptoed down the stairs, quietly prise the living room door open and stuffed my little round face with every biscuit you left on that table! I’m sorry but I swear I never, absolutely never, went near the presents. Nope, I never poked them, shook them, unwrapped them and scruffily taped them back up again. Never!

  3. Fancy some Tea & Cake?

    Posted on

    Whenever I think relax I think three things: sofa, tea and cake! Very British of me I know but everyone knows a good sit down and cuppa tea soon rids those stresses of the day and with the average person drinking 2-3 cups of the good stuff a day - it seems I’m not the only one. So it may come of no surprise that mine (and many others!) favourite pastime has evolved into Kiss Air’s new Summer candle range – the Tea & Cake collection!

    tea borderNow the cake side of this is truly spectacular! When I was a kid my mum would often take me into the local bakery to buy my favourite “marshmallow stuffed ice cream cone topped with sprinkles” treat and the smell of that bakery from all those sweet goodies was just heavenly. These cake candles do just the same, as soon as that fragrance hits you’re nose you’ll never want to lose it.

    First up is Jam Sponge and it’s our take on a classic British cake, Victoria Sponge, so you can expect the scent of vanilla sponge smothered in sweet raspberry jam to fill your house when burning the candle.

    And last but by no means least, Chocolate Cake! Now this scent is indulgent and, like all our candles, it smells just like the real thing so it’ll soon have your mouth-watering!

    And finally, Lemon Drizzle, this scented candle has been in range for a while and with good reason with its delicious scent of lemon syrup, poppyseed, and brown sugar all sitting on base notes of marshmallow fluff and vanilla cake batter.

    Don’t know about you, but all of a sudden I’m craving cake….

    The cake candles really are the most on point imitations of the real thing that you’ll ever find. But we understand that some people need some light, fresh alternatives to counter those cosy, comforting, indulgent scents and that is exactly what the tea candles do.

    I cannot big up the Fresh Mint Tea candle enough! This is perfect for Spring/Summer – a real uplifting, refreshing, clean scent of crushed mint leaves and white tea. It really is a cleanse the pallet kind of candle and will certainly give that cooling impression when the hot Summer evenings roll round.

    Earl Grey Tea is yet another British classic that we had to include in this range. The bergamot infused black tea has been drunk in Britain since the 1920s so has more that stood the test of time. With its subtly sweet and zesty scent we’re hoping this candle will be just as popular as the real thing.

    So there you have it! A real British inspired collection from a proud to be British candle company.

    I'd love to know what your tea and cake combo will be, so leave me a comment below.

  5. Step into spring with Kiss Air Candles

    Posted on

    At last, after what seems to be like an eternity in the ice age, we're finally starting to see the sun peeking through those clouds which can only mean one thing...spring has finally sprung!!

    As the seasons change and weather hots up it brings a time where we want lighter more refreshing scents filling our here are my top three picks.

    Our Frozen Margarita “cocktail” contains top notes of lime which is known for its “cooling down” properties and uplifting effects! By having this sweet scent waft through your home, not only will it get you reminiscing about that beach holiday but you’ll also be helping that mind  and body of yours!

    Of course, think of spring, you immediately think flowers! And is there a better and more well-known flower fragrance than lavender? Not only will this get you into the spring mood, it also contains essential oil so it really is the one to be burning in the evening for that good night’s sleep!

    When I personally think of spring, one of the biggest memories I have is seeing the washing back on the line in the garden and our Clean Cotton candle always puts this image in my mind. This crisp, fresh linen scent is a classic and perfect for the upcoming spring months when you more of a fresh and light scent around your home.

    Now in our opinion, we believe that any candle can be burned any time of the year as there is always a time for a candle. But if you’re looking for more seasonal scents this spring (or Easter! Our candles make perfect presents for all those dieting chocoholics!) the above is a pretty good place to start.
