Have you smelled Alice Blue?
Posted on

I’m very particular about smell, so only a few scents really appeal to me. It can be as simple as vanilla or Dove shea butter soap. I like the scent of Soumak’s Kuliglig room spray, which makes me sleepy. I love the smell of my kids after bathing with Johnson’s lavender wash. Another thing I really like is Nivea’s Happy Time deodorant 🙂

Most recently I discovered something, of all places, in the Family Lounge restroom of Glorietta 4. It was the sweet scent of Alice Blue’s Berry Crumble candle. I took a quick photo with my phone and asked the restroom attendant about it. She said I could find it in Glorietta 3.

Luckily, Grace knew exactly where it was. I bought one candle, lit it at home and wondered: how come I’d never heard of this and how come I found out after Christmas??

I was pleasantly surprised to find out Alice Blue candles are made in the Philippines.
Started in 2005 by two environmentalists hoping to create a candle that really scents the room, the hand-poured candles are made of soy wax—a renewable, biodegradable source—instead of paraffin wax, which is a byproduct of crude oil.
The candles were named after a pale shade of blue dedicated to Theodore Roosevelt’s daughter, Alice Roosevelt-Longworth.
Selected fragrance oils and high-quality cotton and paper wicks are used to make them longer-lasting and highly fragrant (which I can attest to). And whether they’re lit up or not, you can already smell the scent straight from the glass.
Find them in kiosks at Rockwell mall, Glorietta 3, and Trinoma.

tried ordering alice blue candles on line …. you click for the items you want then proceed to check out, choose mode of payment but does not indicate freight charges, they let you pay then they email you that they have to ask for the freight charges, obviously they make you go back to the bank and let you pay the amount of 150.00 (hassle!) plus the website did not indicate which items are out of stock, so they email you back for replacement choices … sobrang tagal nang transaction …. so when i suggested to them that if possible… Read more »

Hi Ms. Cecile! Glad to see you discovered Alice Blue. They’re actually a long-time exhibitor of CITEM’s Manila FAME and join overseas trade missions besides. I love how they give candles a luxurious appeal that is also environment-friendly.: )

I’m a huge fan of their lavender. White tea and ginger is also nice 🙂

This is what I always ask for Christmas and my birthday! I love Alice Blue candles. They not only have such a pure scent (na hindi masakit sa ilong), the wick also burns clean. Yung ibang candles kasi are too smoky. They always say trim the wick (which I do) but with Alice Blue candles, even if you don’t trim the wick, hindi masusunog yung bahay mo =)

Not a fan of candles but I am very definitely a fan of room sprays. I’m glad to see they have those too. Worth checking out when I go home to Manila. Thanks for the tip, Ms. C!

I saw these before in Podium. (Not sure though if the kiosk is still there.) Was really attracted to the super pretty packaging and affordable prices. Good thing you posted this and reminded me again of this product, will definitely put this on my mental list for upcoming friends’ birthdays!!

My BIL needs this. I think I should recommend it to him, but how much for a candle? 🙂
