Review: Old Factory Candles and giveaway ENDS 12/3!

  I love candles! I don't know a person that doesn't. I recently tried some Soy Candles from Old Factory Candles. I've never burned soy candles before. They're hand poured, made out of natural soy wax, use pure fragrance oils and they have self trimmed cotton wicks. These 2 ounce candles come in small glass jars with black screw tops.

  I received two sets of candles. The first one that I chose was the 'Coffee Shop' set which contained three 2 ounce candles. The scents were: Coffee Bean, Hazelnut and Chai Tea. I was really excited to burn the Coffee Bean but it didn't smell like Coffee Bean to me when I burned it. Rather a little too strong and to me, not 'coffee like'. The Hazelnut one was my fav out of this set that I was most looking forward to and another relative of mine loved the Chai Tea scent that was burning which was nice as well.

  The 2nd set that I received was called: 'Happy Holidays'. In this set, the candles were: Christmas Tree, Candy Cane and Gingerbread. I was most excited to receive the Gingerbread scent. The Christmas Tree scent is a subtle one, Candy Cane, was a pretty strong scent but I liked it and the Gingerbread, was my fav.

  These candles burn clean and there is no soot rising to the ceiling. These candles go for $25 on While I do enjoy these candles, I can't say that I'd personally pay $25 for three 2 ounce jars. However, I do recommend these as they really are nice candles and would definitely make a great gift idea for friends and family.

  Listen up friends, Old Factory Candles would like to give one of my followers a chance to receive their very own set of soy candles! Mmmmmmmmmmmm! :) Please simply leave a comment in the comment box letting me know which scent pack you'd love to win! It's that easy and I'll pick a winner on December 3rd!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

The Happy Holidays set sounds really pleasing to the nose. I think that set is the one I'm leaning towards.

Debbie Oliver said... most favorite thing in the world is I would have to say the Happy Holidays set since it has Candy Cane (the best invention ever)! I also love gingerbread and the smell of pine I would adore every single one of those. Thank you for this opportunity to enter! Good luck, everyone!
