“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.” — William Shakespeare
The Wine Harlots latest obsession is the Glassed Over Recycled Wine Bottle Candle. Glassed Over is a small two-man operation based in California and founded in 2010. The handmade candles are created from recycled wine bottles and filled with eco-friendly soy wax. Wine Harlots were sent a lavender-scented 16 oz candle ($24 USD, pictured above) as a sample and love it. The wine bottle candle burns cleanly and evenly, and the lavender fills the room with a relaxing, soothing fragrance. One caveat If the candles are going to be used in the kitchen, dining area or anywhere food or drink will be consumed, order the unscented candles so that the beverages and sustenance won’t have to compete with the candle.
Glassed Over does custom orders for wineries or special events like weddings, anniversaries or birthdays. Based on the response from guests at the Wine Harlots World Headquarters, the Glassed Over candles are a huge hit. There have been repeated attempts to steal the candle from the sample closet which have resulted in the stern admonition: “Step away from the candle and no one gets burned!” So the moral is when you buy one Glassed Over candle, do a good deed and pick up a couple extra for covetous friends and family.
