Of our five senses, we think our sense of smell can be most transportive. A scent can take you back to grandma’s kitchen, a tropical vacation, or just a special, peaceful moment. And although you may not be able to see a scent, scents do play a role in interior design. A steve mckenzie’s interior wouldn’t be complete without a signature smell that reflects the space.
That’s why we’re thrilled to have partnered with Juls Candles – a candle atelier located just north of Atlanta in Suwannee, Georgia! The scents Juls creates are absolutely extraordinary and the love and care she pours into each item is absolutely evident.
Jill stumbled upon Juls Candles back in 2002 while driving near our old neighborhood one day and couldn’t pass up the old, quirky farmhouse, which is constantly surrounded by eclectic garden items, without going in. And we’re so glad she did! An immediate affinity for the gal behind this unique shop, Julie “Juls” Green, was obvious and an appreciation for her fine candles wasn’t far behind.
A true artisan, Juls spends countless hours crafting unique blends from perfume grade oils – the purest essential oils available for candle-making.
When she lands on a winning smell, Juls works on an assortment of candles ranging from tiny votive candless to large, custom pours using special vessels brought in by clients. What began as a hobby for Juls, progressed to a basement-based business, and has now bloomed into a full-fledged candle making operation!
It’s no surprise Juls’ business has flourished. More than 12 years ago, Jill was an early customer of Juls Candles, and now we’re fortunate enough to work with Juls to create candles and soaps in her addictive scents, just for steve mckenzie’s!
Because Juls has SO many wonderful scents to choose from, the team here at steve mckenzie’s has taken the opportunity to curate a selection of scents to offer to our clients. These include:
- Black Tie – Steel Magnolias, sun kissed Raspberries and ripened Georgia peaches.
- Twisted Sage – Year round Sage and a twist of Citrus. Not too floral, not too sweet, just down right clean.
- Georgia – Rendered by the Romantic hills of Georgia; Tangerine, Sage, and a splash of Fir, Balsam and Pine spiced infused with a hint of Tobacco.
- China Rain – Rain drops glisten over a field of wildflowers dancing in the breeze. Fresh and Peaceful.
And… coming soon to steve mckenzie’s, Juls Candles’ Free Spirit (Mint leaves drenched in Jasmine and pine. Bring the outdoors in.) and Man Cave (A place of peace and pleasure… Patchouli oil 60’s style. Sandalwood and Sage bring unisex style and a spa-like feel to any room.) scents. Come in soon to smell them for yourself!
In addition to all of the wonderful Juls Candles available at steve mckenzie’s, we are also thrilled to offer handmade, hand-cut soaps in the same assortment of scents as our candle collection. Talk about luxury – each time you lather up, you’ll be transported with these fabulous smells!
