Candle Consultants Wanted...or UP IN SMOKE!**


Blogroll Me!



Do you burn scented candles? Do you know 5 people who burn scented candles?

New natural wax/gourmet Candle Company is looking for distributors in your area. Our cleaner burning gourmet candles are a hit in the US and Canada.

We will teach you our “smell and sell” technique.

Training and support provided. Get started for less than $50.

Compensation: Earn up to 50% profit on retail sales

This was an ad on
www.craigslist.com. Can you imagine applying for such a sales job? C'mon, how many people would get to learn the secret of the "smell and sell" technique? That alone is a drawing card.

Candles are popular items once again. I first got a scented candle for a birthday present when I was about 12. It was a cherry scented red candle that had a very cute holder that it sat in. Once in a while I'd want to light it, but if so, I couldn't enjoy its fragrance in my bedroom, but had to move the candle into the kitchen, where it was reasonably safer.


And these days, there's even a Candle of the Month Club. Hey, that's some special membership to have...not everyone has the privilege of saying, "I'm a member of the Candle of the Month Club in good standing."

Mmmm, honey-berry, anyone? How about cinnamon spice? Can I hear it for lovely lavender...?

** Some more subtitles I thought of:

---You Light Up My Life

---Candle in the Wind

---C'mon, Baby, Light My Fire

--- An Old Flame Can't Hold a Candle to You (yes, this is really a country-western song title...a BAD song title)

---Burn that Candle (a Bill Haley composition)

And on top of those song titles, I found a winning one in the Eurovision Song Contest by Israel's Sarit Hadad. Here are the lyrics -- Hebrew and English -- to "Light a Candle":

Lif'amim nidme she'ein tikva

Vehakol nir'e kol kach afel velo yadu'a

Haprachim od lo parchu bagan ubasade

Uba'erev rak maka haru'ach

Az Bo'u venadlik beyachad ner, ner

Light a candle

Light a candle with me

A thousand candles in the dark

Will open our hearts

Light a candle

Light a candle with me

A thousand candles in the dark

Will open our hearts

Lif'amim nir'e sheHamachar

Lo yavi kol nechama labechi velatza'ar

Vehalaila Ha'aroch nimshach bli havtacha

Veha'afela chada kata'ar Az Bo'u venadlik beyachad ner, ner

Light a candle

Light a candle with me

A thousand candles in the dark

Will open our hearts

Light a candle

Light a candle with me

A thousand candles in the dark

Will open our hearts

Light all the candles

Let's light the candles everywhere

Just look at me and take my hand

The heat of love will grow again

Light a candle

Light a candle with me

A thousand candles in the dark

Will open our hearts

Light a candle

Light a candle with me

A thousand candles in the dark

Will open our hearts

Sweettooth: I like lines in books that read " 'And who are you to talk!'" she sniffed indignantly. (I'm on a punny roll here...hope I still have that spark)

hehe

while i'm not the hugest fan of scented candles there is something about candles that is special. this is the fact that the flame can be shared, transferred to more candles, and the original flame does not diminish or lose anything by giving to others. there is a life lesson there i'm sure!!
