Old Factory Candle Gift Sets Make A Great Gift!Thursday, October 30, 2014
I love candles. I mean, really LOVE candles. There is nothing better that lighting a gorgeous-smelling candle in your home and enjoying the fragrance for hours. I don't know what it is, maybe the aromatherapy benefits, but it makes me feel peaceful and relaxed. I got the chance to try out a gift-set of gourmet soy candles from Old Factory Candles and I was not disappointed.
Choosing was so difficult, and I settled on the Fresh & Clean collection. When the packaged arrived, I opened it to find the candles packaged in a great printed box, ready for gift-giving.
The slip inside let me know what fragrances were included.
I love finding little surprises in my packaging and when I started pulling out the candles, I found that the insert was also printed with cute phrases. I love attention to detail.
The scents included in the Fresh & Clean collection were Lemongrass, Fresh Linen, and Olive Blossom. I knew I would like the scents of Lemongrass and Fresh Linen; These are pretty standard scents for candles, but I wasn't sure what Olive Blossom would smell like. It's really beautiful, almost a floral, and I've smelled it before, but can't place it. Doesn't that drive you nuts?!
All of the candles were pretty strongly scented, and filled the room with a light scent quickly. It burned cleanly with no smoking, which is nice. I loved all three scents, but I think the Olive Blossom is my favorite now.
These sets would make great stocking-stuffers or hostess gifts for the holidays, or just a nice treat for yourself.
A little weird tip about soy wax candles: they're great for moisturizing your hands too!
Are you a candle person? Which collection would you choose?
