Fragrance Descriptions

FRAGRANCES/CANDLE COLORS/DESCRIPTIONS  

Please note:  We’re often asked the question:  “Can I burn soy candles if I’m allergic to soy?”  Most soy allergies are related to food and body lotions/soap products.  We have MANY customers who have soy allergies, and have never had a problem burning our candles, however, we would suggest you check with your physician just to be sure!  Just don’t use our candles (if you have a soy allergy) as body lotion, and you should be fine!


Aromatherapy

Lavender (Lavender) – This is a TRUE lavender…honestly! Lavender is a sensual flower thought to have powerful romantic and calming abilities, by the way.

Nag Champa (Ivory) – This one is hard to describe.  It kind of reminds me of the smell of insense burning, but the description says it’s a sweet, slightly woodsy smell that many people describe as calming, warming, and moist. For some, the smell is reminiscent of jasmine or magnolia flowers, the forest, or even tea.  See what I mean, it’s hard to describe.  What I can tell you is:  It Smells Great!  I’ve smelled it elsewhere, but it smelled like perfume and was very sweet; this is not at all like that.  There’s no perfume or sweet smell with this one!

Sinus Relief (Ivory) – Ever smell the scent of vick’s vapor rub? Our sinus relief fragrance is a cool, crisp blend of camphor, eucalyptus, and mint. Great for snuffed up noses!

Stress Relief (Ivory) – You will love our version of this popular BBW Type. Relax and think clearly. Blends of Eucalyptus Essential Oil clears the mind while blends of Spearmint Essential Oil uplifts 

Bakery

Carrot Cake (Orange) – Fresh baked carrot cake with cream cheese icing.  There’s no way to describe exactly how delicious this fragrance smells!

Cinnamon (Beige) – I may be biased, but I believe we have THE best Cinnamon out there!  It’s cinnamon, plain and simple.  It is awesome!  If you love cinnamon, then this one’s for you!

Vanilla (Ivory) – I was going to call this Very Vanilla.  Then I thought that people would think it smelled like vanilla extract.   Then I thought of something like Vanilla Bean and that didn’t work for me either.  The name Pure Vanilla came to mind, but then it would be under the P’s, since this list is in alphabetical order, and I didn’t want people to miss it if they were looking under V for Vanilla!  I’ll tell you one thing for sure though, this truely IS the strongest, purest vanilla you’ll ever find in a candle…so, to keep it in the right place in alphabetical order, Vanilla it is…because Vanilla it IS!

Duplications

Apple Jack & Peel (Red) – Tangy apple cider that has been curing in the hot sun.  (Claire Burke Duplication)

Love Spell – yep, THAT Love Spell!

Sunwashed Linen (Ivory) – Imagine clothes right off the clothesline…that’s this fragrance!

White Tea & Ginger (Ivory) – White tea, lemon, yuzu, clean florals and spicy ginger create this very popular combination.

Earthy/Woodsy

Bayberry (Green) – Due to popular demand, we now offer this warm and spicy fragrance all year long.

Imperial Sandalwood (Ivory) – A very sophisticated and dry Sandalwood Spice blend. This sultry and rich complex fragrance opens with a heady and exotic profusion of Amber, Nutmeg, Cardamom and Coffee. Along with a Sandalwood much more like actual wood than incense, an astringent quality emerges with the resinous notes of myrrh and carefully balanced incense. As the middle notes emerge, the fragrance blooms with the subtle woody quality of Patchouli and earthy Vetiver. Just a touch of vanilla adds a sweetness. Closing with an addictive dry down of wood, amber and moss…and the pervasive dominance of Sandalwood. We think it’s like no other Sandalwood around!

Patchouli (Ivory) – All you 60’s and 70’s earthlings will love this one! For those of you who don’t remember those days, Patchouli is a deep penetrating woodsy, earthy aroma.

 

Edibles

 

Lemon Cheesecake – just like mom used to make.

Pumpkin Chai (Pumpkin) – Creamy vanilla forms a base for fresh pumpkin and spicy notes of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg, blended with creamy milk to create this luscious fragrance.

 

 

Fruity 

 

Coconut (Ivory) – As creamy as fresh coconut.  This and our cinnamon and vanilla are THE best I’ve ever smelled!  I can’t keep coconut in stock – at craft fairs, it flies off the shelves!  If you love coconut, I can guarantee you’ve never smelled a coconut like this one before, and I’d highly recommend trying it – once you try it, you’ll be back for more!

Cucumber Mint (Green) – The name simply does not do this blend justice

Juicy Pineapple (Yellow) – An abundance of sweet, juicy, chilled pineapple stolen from the Dole Plantation just yesterday. I’m 

Macintosh Apple (Red) – A bushel full of sweet mouth-watering apples – smells like they just fell off the tree!

Orange Dreamsicle (Orange) – Smells exactly like the “Creamsicle” the ice cream man used to deliver!

Pina Colada (Ivory) – A delicious blend of coconut milk and ripe crushed pineapple.

  

Tomslitehouse Original Fragrances

Don’t Laff..I Cleaned (Ivory) – This fragrance will make everybody who walks into your home think you cleaned all day, when, in reality, you didn’t lift a finger! It smells exactly like Pine Sol…it was requested by one of our clients (Jenn Laffey – hence the Laff in the name ~ it didn’t hurt that MY last name is Laffey, too) so we developed it especially for her – it took off so well that we decided to add it to our list of available fragrances! Thanks, Jenn!

Hoboken Memories (Ivory) – So, the story of this fragrance goes like this.  There used to be a coffee factory in Hoboken (Maxwell House, I believe) and, after it rained, you could smell the coffee mixed with the scent of the rain shower.  One of my favorite clients in Hoboken asked me if I could make a fragrance like that.  Wel, no brag, just fact, from what I’ve heard from people who have had this … I NAILED IT!

Jackpot—Being a frequent visitor to Atlantic City, and being a superstitious gambler,  and being into aromatherapy,  I created a candle made up of fragrances that bring luck and money into my life.  I’m not going to list the quantities, because I can’t trademark the recipe, but this fragrance is amazing!  It contains cinnamon, vanilla, orange, sandalwood and a few other fragrances.  I bring candles with me and burn them in our room in Atlantic City (or Las Vegas) and, unless my Jackpot candles are burning, I don’t win jackpots.  When they’re burning …I, more often  than not, win.  Nobody wins EVERY time, but I win A LOT!  I have Jackpot candles and tarts in my house and they’re going all the time—and I win  the lottery quite often, too (mostly scratch off tickets).  I don’t guarantee you’ll win money if you burn these candles, but they work for me and others who use them!  Money’s not going to fly into your open windows, but, if you buy lottery tickets or go to a  casino (ever) I’ll bet you dollars to donuts, your luck will change with my Jackpot fragrance burning in your home! 

Vanilla Fig (Ivory) – So, I was watching one of those home shopping networks one day and someone was on with a new body lotion – Vanilla Fig.  She kept going on and on about how wonderful it smelled and kept saying nobody else has that fragrance.  Well, since I use my tarts for body lotion, and I had Vanilla and Fig on hand, I started experimenting and came up with this.  She was right, it does smell wonderful!  And, you can now get it here!

Vanilla Sage (Ivory) The MOST beautiful scent I have ever experienced was when I walked into a shop in Albuquerque and there was a Vanilla Sage candle burning. This is my interpretation of that fragrance. It is the most relaxing fragrance and perfect for aromatherapy. This is the end all be all fragrance – no brag, just fact, I nailed this one! :-)

Winter Journey (Ivory) – This fragrance was made in memory of Ryan.  If you knew him, you couldn’t help but like him!   RIP, Ryan – you are missed!

Bayberry (Green) – A warm and spicy holiday tradition.

Blue Spruce (Green) – Ever hike out and cut your own Christmas Tree? With our Blue Spruce, you’ll feel like you did just that.

We love this fragrance and think you will too.  This fragrance oil is infused with natural cedarwood and pine essential oils.

Fireside (Ivory) – A pleasant vanilla and hot embers type with notes of charred woods of birch, pine and cedar and a musky, balsamic, ambery-vanilla and sandalwood dry down.

Frosty Pine (Green) – This is not a typical pine-type scent – it’s so much more complex! A snowy covered Canadian pine with camphoraceous notes of rosemary and vetiver, spiced bay, leather nuances, and a woody/musky base of cedar, sandalwood, Canadian Spruce, Douglas Fir Needle, cypress, balsam pine and woody orris.

Pine Cone Wreath (Green) – This fragrance oil is one of our favorites because it’s full of pine with no green notes! Top notes of dried pine, snowy ozone and crisp air are followed by anise, cedar, musky vanilla and subtle sandalwood to create this unique scent. A fragrant unisex scent that can be used year round.
