It’s no secret that I love candles. LOVE them. I also love the scented wax cubes everyone is so crazy about. When I was asked to represent Mississippi in the Better Homes & Gardens State Fragrance contest going on now at the Better Homes & Gardens Facebook page, I immediately agreed because I love my state and the thought of coming up with something that best expressed what made my state unique AND play around with new candle scents was just too hard to pass up.
I was sent a gift card to purchase a Better Homes & Gardens wax warmer and a few different BH&G wax cubes to combine to come up with a scent to best illustrate my state of Mississippi.
So, what did I come up with?
New Fragrance name- Delta Blues
Scent combinations- Fresh Ocean Flower, Enchanted Evening Walk, Soft Cashmere Amber
There is no definitive answer on where blues music originated, but Mississippi boasts some of the biggest legends in blues music, like B. B. King, Muddy Waters, Charlie Patton, and Howlin’ Wolf. A large part of our tourism in Mississippi is thanks in part to the blues. My photo is of Dockery Plantation, a now defunct cotton plantation established in 1895, located just a few miles down the road from where I live. Listed as a stop on the Mississippi Blues Trail and on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s argued that Dockery Plantation, early home of Blues legend Charlie Patton, was the birthplace of the Delta blues in Mississippi.
The Fresh Ocean Flower and Enchanted Evening Walk wax cubes were chosen for their blue color. The Soft Cashmere Amber adds a sweet hint to the first two scents. Combined, these wax cubes produce a deep, rich floral scent.
