Scent Trends for Spring + Summer 2019

As with clothing fashion, there are trends in home decor - including scent. Fragrance for the home has evolved over the years from strong vanilla type scents in the 80's to spiced potpourris in the 90's to linen/laundry perfumes in the 2000's and now back to a more nature-inspired home. For 2019 Spring + Summer, we have set aside our cozy holiday candles for a season-appropriate refresh in our newly "Tidied Up" homes. Here's a look at 3 big trends in home fragrance for Spring + Summer: Citrus. It's no surprise that citrus would top this list. While it might...

Lulumière x VEQUE celebrate the University of Washington Huskies

The area is buzzing over the UW Husky Football team making it to the Rose Bowl! To celebrate, we are giving away a free VEQUE nail polish in Fantome (whitish purple), Bisous (a pinkish plum) or Soiree (a dark blue purple) + your choice of mini candle. We love VEQUE for so many reasons. First, they are 9-free. That means they are without the 9 of the most harmful toxins found in most every nail polish. There are some 3-free or rarely a 5-free polish, but a 9-free polish is pretty special. Also, their brushes are amazing! They help apply...

Autumn Winter Collection is Live

Autumn Winter Collection is Live

Each season, I think a lot about what feelings, scents & ideas I want to bring into my collection. I also take some candles out if they don't make sense for the upcoming months, which also takes much consideration. My main driver is usually the home - what's happening outside & what's going on indoors. These days on my morning walk, it's all about the trees. They are changing colors and just might be nature's showstopper. The air is also different. It's crisp & cool & super clean. As far as home life, we've started bringing out the squishy blankets...

As Seen in The Seattle Times

Many thanks to The Seattle Times for featuring Lulumière candles, both in print via their Sunday paper edition, and also on Monday online in their article highlighting locally made items for fall decor. The featured item was my Coffee & Vanilla candle. It's from my Essential Collection that uses only... well, the essentials. All of the candles from this line use just 100% essential oils for scent. That means the air will be lightly fragranced and totally pure, without any fragrances or perfumes (or headaches!) The wick is cotton + paper, totally lead free. And finally, renewable, US grown soy...
