One of my very favorite things about the holidays is being able to go out and stock up on all the exclusive seasonal scents that hit the shelves around Halloween. Cinnamon, Apple Pie, Pumpkin Spice, Winter Evergreen, the list goes on and on! Every year those scents and many more fly off the shelves in the form of items like Febreeze, Wall Plug-ins, Potpourri and more. People go nuts for them! My item of choice of course are the candles. They’re decorative, pretty and unlike with spray scents you never have to worry about releasing too many fumes into the air when you light them.
To further my love for seasonal scents I was recently given the chance to work with Old Factory to review their wonderful scented candles! Old Factory is an Amazon Exclusive company, meaning you can’t find them anywhere else on earth but Amazon. Exclusively on Amazon, makes it sound so trendy, like an Amazon VIP or something. Just kidding but hey, at least you can say you have quality, exclusive scents that not everyone in Target or Bed Bath and Beyond has in their carts.
Each Candle from Old Factory is hand-poured, made of high quality soy and burn clean without leaving the sooty residue we all hate. They also burn evenly which is something that I think we can all appreciate. After all, who wants a candle that only burns in one place and leaves those hideous wax craters in the center? Not this girl, that’s for sure. And, being an ex candle maker I know a good candle when I find one, and these are little gems. My favorite of the ones I got was the pumpkin spice … YUM!
If you’re looking for a great alternative to those Target brands you find yourself buying each year then head over to Old Factory on Amazon and check out their line of scented candles. There are a dozen great scents to choose from and the best part is that they’re made in the US so you know exactly what you’re getting without the worry of outsourcing.
Here’s a few helpful tips on how to get the most out of your candle experience:
1. We recommend burning your candles for 1 to 3 hours at a time, and then letting them cool an hour before burning again. We’ve found that this helps to extend the burning life of the candle.
2. We’ve carefully formulated these candles so they are pleasing to smell but not overpowering. These candles burn great individually in small rooms, or you can burn 2 at a time in a larger room. We’ve grouped the fragrances in each gift set to complement each other nicely so you can pair them up for a great-smelling combination.
3. A little bit of wick management will help your candles last longer. Make sure to keep the wick trimmed to a reasonable length. And if you notice that the wick is starting to lean against the side of the jar, use a spoon to carefully reposition the wick to the center of the jar while the wax is warm and pliable.
