Posted by on Nov 30 2012 | holiday candles

With Christmas just around the corner, we have already entered the festive atmosphere, becoming occupied by dressing our homes in special holiday colors and by choosing those special little gifts for our friends and family members. In the previous post, I have introduced a number of high-end scented candles, based on the beautiful scents of pine and fir, which could be perfect Christmas presents. However, for a real candle lover, it is never enough, so there is another list of the very best winter fragrances that could be a nice addition to the warm and cozy holyday décor of your home.

Scented candles specially created for winter days bring fresh aromas of evergreen forests into our homes, giving the inner space the great sense of aliveness and openness. Furthermore, their spicy notes are responsible for the calm and idyllic atmosphere that we all like to enjoy during charming holiday breaks. One of the best choices for these special moments is Thymes Wildwood Blue Spruce & Elderberry Candle, featuring a cool flavor of woods warmed by sparkling herbs and exotic spices. Poured into a stylish glass and packed in a beautifully decorated box, this affordable luxury seems like a perfect scented gift.

Voluspa - Golden Cypress SawaraBy using rare seasonal fragrance ingredients, Voluspa created a Branch Vermeil 3-Wick Tin Candle that will refresh your personal space with the uplifting aroma of icy winter spruce branch, imbued with sweet and spicy hints of citron, balsam and sugar. If you would like to experience the enchanting scent of a seaside forest, there is a Diptyque Cypres (Cypress) Candle that offers warm essences of honey and resin deriving from Mediterranean cypress. The similar note of a clean sugary balsam of snapped cypress needles comes with Voluspa Golden Cypress Sawara. Beside the pretty cool and original design, this high-end candle provides an extra-ordinary burning time up to 100 hours for a very affordable price.

Hand poured with a premium soy wax, Archipelago Frosted Cedar Boxed Jar Candle brings another tempting blend of the biting winter frost with fresh cedar, while Jonathan Adler’s Big Sur Forest candle offers a more complex mixture of crisp bergamot and rich vetiver with warm cedar wood and nutmeg.

Baroness von Neumann - Verbier Holiday CandleSome of these holiday specialties are available just for limited time, so if you like them, better be quick. That is the case with a stunning Baroness von Neumann Verbier Holiday Candle whose complex blend of delightful fragrances recalls the season of joy. This high-end candle, based on aromas of fir and spruce is complemented with white jasmine, mulling spices and cranberry. The addition of rarefied essential oils, vanilla and deep amber makes it pretty unusual and highly sought-after.

Explore the World of Scented Candles to Find Ideal Christmas Gift for 2012

Posted by on Nov 20 2012 | holiday candles

Can you feel the growing excitement with each day we are closer to Christmas holidays? If you can, if you are already overwhelmed with that special energy, then you have probably started thinking about perfect gifts for your beloved ones. For those that still did not decide what to put under the Christmas tree, some of high-end candles can be a pretty good solution, especially if its design and fragrance match the spirit of the upcoming holidays.

Belle Fleur Exotic Wood - Neroli Pine CandleThere are many little things that make Christmas so beautiful – characteristic decorations, lights, music and caroling, special meals, an exchange of Christmas cards… All of them have the purpose to make Christmas message be received by all our senses. The role of scented candles is to complement idyllic atmosphere in our homes, by decorating them with divine winter flavors. Thus, take a look into the selection of the best fragrances for the upcoming holidays and find your ideal blend.

Agraria’s signature Balsam Crystal Petite Candle comes with a refreshing essence of a sweet balsam combined with Californian redwood, a hint of French sage and the bouquet of white flowers. The essences of fir and pine are must have fragrances for winter days, especially if you have an artificial Christmas tree in your house. Firstly, I will introduce those candles based on pine scent. You can try with Aquiesse Monterey Pine Holiday Soy Candle that faithfully reflects a misty journey through a coastal forest, with the thrilling blend of hilltop Evergreen pines, earthy Canadian balsam wood and fresh thyme. Considering its sophisticated design and amazing 100 hours of burning time, this candle will probably stay the important part of your home décor long after holidays.

Votivo - Icy Blue Pine CandleI highly recommend Belle Fleur’s Exotic Wood – Neroli Pine candle, as an affordable luxury gift. Inspired by Bristlecone pine forest and fresh morning in Rocky Mountain, this great product packed inside an elegant gift box represents a harmonious mix of fir balsam, Seville orange blossom and wildflower honey fragrances. Another high-end product that can be a perfect gift is Votivo Icy Blue Pine Holiday Candle. Poured into a festive silver vessel and placed in a gift ready box, this powerful blend of prickly pine scent, sweet and spicy cedar bark and crumbles of crystallized ice cubes will create a wonderful winter adventure in your home. The quality – price ratio puts this candle among the best choices. We barely can imagine a single “best of” list without Nest candles. This time, we choose a Birchwood Pine Classic Candle, because of its unique flavors of white pine, fir balsam and birchwood, over a base of rich musk and amber. At the other hand, Archipelago’s Birch Candle nicely combines an aroma of a freshly cut pine tree with a hint of sage. Superb burning-time up to 90 hours and natural, eco-friendly materials are the best recommendations for one of Archipelago’s signature flavors.

The same quality and delightful pine base come with Archipelago’s Hope Mercury Boxed Jar Candle that is distinctive by the interesting combination of bayberry and clove scents and especially by the beautiful design of the mercury glass with a light patina finish and a festive red velvet box. The list would not be complete without Lafco’s Tree Holiday Candle that brings three main Christmas scents – fir, pine and balsam – to create a warm idyllic atmosphere during winter holidays.

Selection of Fir Based Candles

To me, there is no big difference between fragrances of evergreen trees, but sometimes a very subtle variation can lead us to the perfection. So, make sure to pick only the best blend for yourself, by letting your senses to decide. Since the fir tree is a symbol of Christmas, it is not surprise that high-end candlemakers paid a special attention to its refreshing fragrance. Archipelago made another interesting product whose powerful, woody scent, a special black matte-finish vessel and a distinctive decorative box make it highly sought after during holidays. A Black Forest Boxed Jar Candle provides the healing blend of Douglas fir, ebony wood and a subtle hint of black currant.

Diptyque - Sapine Dore (Golden Fir) Holiday CandleEspecially for the upcoming festivities, Diptyque created a Limited Edition of Holiday candles, distinguished by remarkable complexity of their fragrances. A Sapine Dore (Golden Fir) Holiday candle stands out both by its fabulous aroma and a caracteristic Christmas design. It blends the fresh scents of the traditional fir needles with a green essence of Iranian galbanum, eucalyptus camphor and piquant Siberian pine. And this is not all. The aromatic essence of Moroccan absinthe gives the final touch to this unique candle.

I also highly recommend the blend of Siberian fir needles, cedarwood and a sensual aroma of sandalwood that Thymes introduced with its Frasier Fir 3 Wick Candle. Finally, revealed exclusively for this season, there is Trapp White Fir Candle, introducing douglas fir, eucalyptus, clove and crisp air flavors.

The rc plane I like best

The rc plane I like best

For a so long time that I can remember,I would like to fly an ME-262 RC Airplane belong
to myself.How cool the 262°Øs looked.It has been a long wait but the 262 is finally here
and in my hands.it brings more exciting to me and my friends.Thanks god!

History
The Messerschmitt Me 262 Schwalbe (English:”Swallow”) was the world’s first operational
jet-powered fighter aircraft.Design work started before World War II began but engine
problems prevented the aircraft from attaining operational status with the Luftwaffe
until mid-1944.Compared with Allied fighters of its day,including the British
jet-powered Gloster Meteor,it was much faster and better armed.One of the most advanced
aviation designs in operational use during World War II,the Me 262 was used in a
variety of roles,including light bomber,reconnaissance and even experimental night
fighter versions.
Me 262 pilots claimed a total of 542 Allied kills (although higher claims are sometimes
made).The Allies countered its potential effectiveness in the air by attacking the
aircraft on the ground and while taking off or landing.Engine reliability problems and
attacks by allies on fuel supplies during the deteriorating late-war situation also
reduced the effectiveness of the aircraft as a fighting force.In the end,the Me 262 had
a negligible impact on the course of the war as a result of its late introduction and
the consequently small numbers that were deployed in operational service.The Me 262
influenced the designs of post-war aircraft such as the North American F-86 Sabre and
Boeing B-47 Stratojet.

Description of Me 262:
The streamlined fuselage and stunning performance has been beautifully recreated by Dynam.
Engineered for speed and agility this plane is constructed of EPOFLEX foam. ?Twin composite
5 blade 70mm ducted fans supported by twin 60amp speed controllers easily propel this jet
to adrenaline pumping speeds. Even better is that only a single 14.8v 4000mAh battery is
required to support this monster of a power plant. The steerable nose wheel and worm drive
retracts allow the landing gears to retract slowly providing that touch of realism. 9gram
servos command the large control surfaces with authority. The control horns, ducted fans,
and servos are pre installed which makes the plane simple and quick to build.
The scale color scheme is simply stunning and it presents as well in the air as it does
taxing on the runway. Pilots will appreciate the unique silhouette it produces while in the
sky. The aerodynamics of the ME 262 makes the plane look fast even when parked!

How to play correctly?
How to play your rc planes,It sounds like that everyone can play the rc airplane.But it is
a considering question that how to play it well or How to play your rc planes correctly.
There are some helpful tips for being successful at the first time.

to avoid it.it will always belong to you.

2.Lost the balance
Many rc aircraft was destroyed in the first test flight for the reason that they are completely
out of balance.Equilibrium point of the rc planes is a KIT or ARF aircraft.Only the skeleton stabilized,
the aircraft will not crash. So it is very important to take the time to balance your plane.With
pliers or your fingers to support the wings,to see where the imbalance.
