Recently I received a complimentary box set of Old Factory Candles. These natural soy candles are hand poured in the United States. Each of the 3 gourmet candles inside the box that I received have natural soy wax, cotton paper wicks, and pure fragrance oils. Old Factory guarantees each candle will burn clean, even, true to-scent for 20 hours.
I enjoy burning candles often at home, especially when I’m relaxing, having a romantic evening with my husband, or spending a Sunday afternoon drinking wine in the tub (much needed “me” time).
I often have candles that reflect my mood, with scents and aromas that I wouldn’t mind lingering throughout the house. It’s comforting to smell a beautiful and pungent scent in your home, and have guest come by who love to guess which candles I’m using when they arrive.
When the opportunity arose to try Old Factory’s hand poured candles, I couldn’t wait. I like the idea that it’s a product that came from the U.S, and that it contains natural ingredients. Inside the packaging, it says “Candles make people happy”, and they’re right! I love a good candle, so I tried all three scents that came in the box.
The packaging was beautiful. Each candle was inserted into a cardboard box, which had three compartments for each 2 oz. candle jar. The candles came with its own top and professional labeling. The scent is on the bottom of each candle. I received Candy Cane, Christmas tree, and Gingerbread.
I didn’t burn all three candles for 20 hours, to test the guarantee. However, I did burn one of them for 5 hours one evening. There was no mess, no running of the wax, and there was no sticky residue once I blew it out. The candle does burn clean, something that I especially like.
As far as the scent, to be honest… you don’t smell it as much as you’d think. I pride myself on having a nose that can sniff out a good scent, especially sweet aromas such as Candy Cane and Gingerbread. However, I didn’t get a real sense of the aroma until I blew the candle out and that gust of air from blowing out the wick hit my nose instantly. I tried sniffing the candle as it was burning (almost burning my lashes off, as hard as I was trying), nevertheless I couldn’t smell the scents as much as the description suggest.
If the scent is the draw in, it didn’t rate well with me. However, everything else about the product from the presentation, the packaging, how quickly it arrived and the fact that it was indeed an actual candle that burned clean was awesome.
