Giveaway: Catbird candle

**now closed**


I never do giveaways. Okay, almost never. I only ever give away things that I would want.

The Catbird candle comes in six scents, including Campfire (woodsmoke, saddle leather & honey) and Tarot Deck (incense, turkish rose & pencil shavings). PENCIL SHAVINGS.


Head over to the Catbird blog and read about all six, then come back and leave a comment (with your email address) telling me which one sounds most enticing to you. The winner, to be chosen at random a week from today, will receive a large candle in the scent of her choice.

HOW COOL IS THAT?

I have connections, people.

______________________________

p.s. May I just also say that I'm so stoked these are available in a travel size? No honeymooner should leave home without a travel candle or two.

**Random.org has spoken. Kristy (#78) wins the candle! Now she has to decide which one she wants.**

  1. I think Seven Seas or Campfire would definitely help cover up my B.O.

  3. tarot deck. i took so many bikes and shuttles and caltrains and barts to get to berkeley in college.

    travel candles were our wedding favor (i am enthusiastically pro-wedding-favor) and i took a suitcase with 100 of them on the plane to england. to this day i remain grateful to whichever screener let that bomb-looking jumble fly.

  4. Totally Tarot Deck. The pencil shavings were the clincher!

  10. wow those sound amazing! i'd have to go with campfire, although it was hard to choose.

  11. While Seven Seas and Pomelo Blossom were heavy contenders, Campfire has definitely won out. Sounds like it smells like a cottage and the earth and maybe what Wesley from The Princess Bride would smell like (just sayin').

  14. These all sound like heaven, but I'd have to go with Campfire.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I just devoted waaaaay too much attention to considering this dilemma. I'm thinking Pomelo blossom, but am also torn between Seven Seas and Fleurs de Nuit.

    ReplyDelete
  16. woo hoo! this is awesome. and it's a no-brainer - seven seas (though campfire sounds mighty enticing...).

    ReplyDelete
  17. It's winter here and I totally need Fleurs de Nuit.

    holley.simons at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  26. Such a tough decision! I'm torn between 3 of them, so....I guess I'll go for Fleurs de Nuit, based on my great adoration of honeysuckle.

    Okay, I have to say that when I read the Fleur du Nuit flavour cocktail, my mouth filled with saliva. Gross? Yes! But I'm literally drooling over it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Definitely CAMPFIRE.
    My summers are consumed by the smell of fires.
    I love my partner most when I pull him in close and take in the smell left in his clothes after camping or our regular backyard fires.

  31. They all sound original and amazing but I think Pomelo Blossom with scents of asian lime, ginger & eucalyptus sounds most enticing! XO Jill

    turner.jillian@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would go for campfire for sure. I generally don't like scented candles, but a candle that smells like camping, well, that's amazing. Plus, building good campfires is one of the many ways my husband wooed me.

  41. toss up between campfire and fig leaf. Either one would be great with some peaty scotch and my hubs on a cold winter night... too much?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Campfire. All the romance, none of the twigs in your ass.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Pomelo Blossom sounds sooo up my alley. Gotta love the smell of eucalyptus :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Tarot Deck: un-freakin-believable. And insanely perfect for a friend of mine working on a dissertation involving 20th century poetry and the occult; she knows a thing or two about both tarot readings and pencil shavings. Let's be honest, though, I'll probably keep it for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  45. ooooh my husband was just saying we needed a new scented candle, and he's super picky about smells! fig leaf sounds amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. oh my goodness!!!

    I would have to either go with campfire (out of sheer curiosity as to how they got saddle leather in a candle)....ooh masculine...or the Fleurs de Nuit...cuz who doesn't want their house to smell like honeysuckle and cactus!!! They all sound amazing!!!!!!

    sweet jebus i hope i win!!!

  48. Tarot Deck for sure.

    Also, what's that about a piggyback ride from Carl Sagan when she was in preschool? That is AWESOME.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have no idea what night blooming jasmine, honeysuckle & cactus blossom smell like so I'll pick Fleurs de Nuit so I can find out.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Can they all be my favorite? Tarot card won the thumb war.

    elizabeth.ditlevson@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  51. Fleurs du Nuits would have to be my choice, though OH MY GOD do they all sound amazng. It would be a perfect edition to our new studio by the sea which occasionally gets that lovely rotten egg aroma.

  60. Holy cow, those are some intriguing scents! I'd have to go with Tarot Deck if I were to be chosen as the giveaway winner (!!), but lets be honest, I'll probably end up buying a travel size of each. Damn you and your awesome giveaway!

  82. THX for fueling my candle obsession. The Fleurs du Nuits sounds like sex, so I'm going with that.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I think the Tarot Deck. It reminds me of being in art school, I can remember staying up all night working on illustration projects, room clouded with nag champa incense, eyes barely open, and so tired that I actually fell asleep on a pile of sharpenings once, (really) and went to class with little flicks of colored pencils in my hair and didn't even notice.

    That is why those scents draw me in, the incense, the shapenings and the deep scent of rose. They call to me, and bring me back to my young hippie days in art school, and reminds me during stressful times that there's still a little artist inside.

  94. Feu de camp, baby.

    dgiseman@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  95. They all sound good, but i have to go with Pomelo Blossom: asian lime, ginger & eucalyptus

    If I don't win the candle, I am thinking that these flavors would make a good cocktail base - in case someone wants to get me a drink instead.

  106. It's the dead of winter, and my house smells like chicken soup and my dog. While comforting and familiar, I would rather pretend I'm on vacation and have it smelled like mint, sea spray & heliotrope--Seven Seas, take me away!
