Hello! My name is Kat and I am a candle addict. Seriously I love them, just about all of them, in every scent. But my favorite is fall scented ones, I may be guilty of burning them year around. There is just so inviting about a house that smells of cinnamon and pumpkin when you walk into the house.
That being said, I am always on the look out for good candles. They need to have a lot of scent, they need to have a long burn time, and they need to keep the soot to a minimum. For these reasons, I have moved to soy based candles. They seem to have to have all of these qualities and more.
Old Factory Candles are my favorite soy based candles. They are shipped simply, in a brown cardboard box sectioned out for each of the three 2 ounce candles. The candles themselves are in simple mason jars, with black plastic tops, a sticker on the side saying they are Old Factory Candles, then a sticker on the bottom with the scent. Don’t let their small size fool you, they pack a scent punch just as much as their larger competition. And they have a total burn time of 60 hours!!
There are a lot of sets to choose from. My choice included:
- Cranberry– It has a tang to the smell, not overly sweet. And really does smell like fresh cranberries.
- Pumpkin– This is my favorite one of the bunch, but that is not surprising considering my obsession with pumpkin. It has all the scents that you would expect: pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg.
- Autumn Leaves- This was a complete surprise to me, it is amazing. It smells exactly like a fall day, playing in the fallen leaves.
Up till now I have only tried them in my bathroom, while taking a bath. A single candle will fill the entire area with scent. While they are lovely when you light them together, there is no need in a smaller room.
While they are lovely and by far my favorite candles, they are a bit pricy in my opinion. They cost $25 for the set through Amazon. But there is free shipping, and they go a great job at the gift wrapping.
