review: old factory candles and a giveaway!!

old factory candles

I was given the opportunity to try this set of 3 hand-poured soy candles from Old Factory. I love burning candles in my home to create a nice mood and to create a pleasant scent in my home. I also love setting them up in the bathroom for a relaxing bubble bath.

From the brand:

 These candle gift sets each contain 3 different scented candles. Each candle burns clean and even for 20 hours. Hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. Each gift set is themed around a group of related fragrances. So everyone is sure to find something perfect for every occasion, every room in the house, and all the special someones in your life.

My Experience:

I selected the Happy Holidays set which had three scents: Christmas Tree, Candy Cane and Gingerbread. I received the shipment very quickly (thanks to Amazon Prime). The candles arrived neatly packed and in “giftable” condition. The candles were a good size and could easily fit into my candle holders (like this one from Target).

Because the candles are soy candles (instead of a different type of wax) they burned very cleanly (no black smoke) and evenly. They lasted for about 15 hours each (as described) and made the room smell nice without being overpowering.

To be honest, I don’t think I would buy the Christmas Tree scent again. It was a nice pleasant smell but it wasn’t quite that fresh from-the-farm smell. However, I really enjoyed the Gingerbread and Candy Cane candles and would definitely buy those again.
