"We haven't had to do that much advertising," says Tisha Gonzalez, co-owner of Alice Blue with pal (and business partner), Vencer Viray. "Alice Blue has been blessed with the magic of word-of-mouth marketing. There are times when an enthused customer will want to buy 30 or 40 of one candle - but we end up having to deliver to their home because we only have about a dozen at any given time."
Being an environmentalist, I can't help but delight in the fact that Alice Blue makes candles from soy wax, which, unlike paraffin wax candles are biodegradable, produce less soot and are extracted from a renewable source (soybeans). This, coupled with the fact that Alice Blue candles burns about 50 per cent longer than other candles of it's size (yes - this has been tested), are reasons enough for anyone to be an Alice Blue loyalist.
Don't be intimidated by the price (Php 395.00/six oz candle in glass holder) because you're buying something that will last about twice as long, not to mention leave a lingering scent of bliss, as the wax variety that you've been buying from the mall or the grocery store. Alice Blue Candles make for a perfect gift - whether it be in its single box, a set of two (Php 795.00) or a trio collection (Php 1,100.00).
The makers have added four new scents to the roster: Bamboo, Lavender, Lemongrass, and Vanilla Sugar - more reason for you to start enjoying the 'throw' of their soy candle scents!
