Scrumptious New Ergo Soy Candles at Dovetail!

We just received an order of scrumptious new, hand-poured, 100% soy candles by Ergo.  These fragrant candles are so potent that one can fill an entire room but the scents are delicate enough not to overpower.  Another reason why we love Ergo so much is that their scents are gender-neutral--nothing is too floral or fruity so the candles can be enjoyed by everyone.

The scents listed below are 7oz candles that burn for 60 hours ($24).  We also carry a selection of 2oz candles, letting you try a few scents out before deciding on one of the larger candles ($6).

Our favorite scents include:

Moroccan Cedar: Cedar with hints of incense, woodsy with a touch of sweetness. This candle is a bit on the masculine side, making it a great choice for those who tend to stray from normal candle offerings.  Great for a crisp night at home. 

Mighty Oak:  Another woodsy scent.  Like Moroccan Cedar, Mighty Oak is masculine and reminds of cologne.  This candle is usually a winner with our male customers.  

Sage Pine: This scent is a big hit at Dovetail. Clean, fresh, and green, with notes of sage, eucalyptus, and tea tree oil. Refreshing and bright.  Perfect for weekend mornings, while the sun is streaming through the windows during your deliciously unrushed morning coffee. 

Dark Chocolate:  Like actual dark chocolate, this candle is rich, deep, and not too sweet. Velvety with subtle hints of hazelnut. A great way to wind down at the end of a hectic work day. 

Pomegranate:  This is one of the sweeter scents in our collection at Dovetail.  But like real pomegranate, it's sweetness is subtle and comes packed with an even amount of tartness.  Its warm and fruity notes are stimulating, making this candle perfect for early mornings and afternoons. 

Monkey Grass:  This candle is both sweet and green.  It has heavy grassy notes complemented and balanced by softer, powdery scents.  Monkey Grass is clean, neutral, and refreshing.  A great candle to burn anytime. 

Eucalyptus:  Ergo really got it right with their Eucalyptus candle; it actually smells very little like actual eucalyptus, which--thanks to its medicinal uses--always seems to remind us of Vicks.  This version of eucalyptus is more like a blend of scents complementary to eucalyptus; a melange of tea tree oil, hints of mint, and a touch of lavender.  This candle gets great reviews from all who buy it. 

Lavender:  Who doesn't like lavender? This candle is absolutely lovely, clean, and calming.  Sure to please at any time of day, any time of year.  It's a classic.
