GIVEAWAY & Review: Old Factory Soy Candles



I was so excited to be able to review Old Factory Soy Candles. I had my choice of a dozen different themes, of which there was 3 different scents for each theme. I thought picking "Winter Wonderland" would help get me in the Holiday spirit. Little did I know that winter would pretty much start the beginning of November in Minnesota this year and we would get snow and cold that would stick around right away. Anyways, the scents in my theme were Hot Cocoa, Roasted Chestnut and First Snow. Hot cocoa smells exactly the way you would think it would smell, but I had no idea what Roasted Chestnut or First Snow would smell like. Roasted Chestnut is kind of a musky nutty scent that my husband really likes. First snow has a lighter floral scent, but not spring time floral. I think they did a good job figuring out a winter floral scent that is not evergreen-y.


I really like that these candles are made with soy wax and not petroleum, They may look like small candles, but the soy wax burns really slowly (and cleanly) and lasts a long time. The description says it lasts 20 hours and even though I didn't time it, I have to believe it to be true because it took a long time to just burn through the first one.

These would make a very thoughtful Holiday gift for any adult. Check out all the different scent themes list below and let me know in the comments section which one is your favorite.
