Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review + Giveaway

I love candles, I could burn them everyday.  It's not always about the way it makes my home smell it's the ambiance it creates.  Think about it, it's proven that scents trigger associations in your brain. Certain scents can make decrease your appetite. Other scents can trigger found memories so candles are a pleasure for me to burn.  I like finding unique scents so when I was chosen to review an Old Factory Candle set for y'all I was excited when I saw their scent choices.

Majority of the scents are very unique so I had a hard time choosing the set I wanted. They have a Holiday set with scents like Christmas Tree, Candy Cane, Gingerbread that I thought long and hard about getting. I figured it would have been perfect for this time of year.

But I went in a different with the cold weather coming I wanted a tropical getaway, even if it was only in my mind. So I chose the Vacation set with these three scents: Sea Breeze, Hawaiian Lei, Awapuhi. I was  a little nervous after I ordered I wasn't sure if they would smell overly sweet.

The set has three candles and they are in a cute 2 oz jar with a label that has an old fashion appearance. I lit my first one Hawaiian Lei  and it smells amazing. Awapuhi smells amazing this one has a little bit more of a sweet smell than Hawaiian Lei but still just a pleasant smell nothing over whelming. Just as a note my mailman left my package sideways at my door step and Awapuhi melted. It made a mess but still had majority of the candle in the jar or went back in the jar. I was very impressed because I still have a lot of candle to enjoy. I think only this one melted because it was the first on top. Either way no complaints but that does show how slow burning they are.

The scent (like with most candles) fills the air but you don't smell it until you walk out then walk back into the room. The smell was not too sweet but more inviting and dreamy. The scent makes me wish/dream about being on an island in Hawaii smelling the flowers as the breezes blows softly.  I KNOW I'm not there and I will probably never get to Hawaii but there's nothing wrong with creating my own escape every now an then.

Every candle is Made in the USA with natural soy wax and self-trimming cotton candle wicks. Each gift pack comes with 3 fragrance-themed candles. Each of which burns clean for over 20 hours. The scent can be used in any room.  Since they are soy they burn extremely clean. Even when I blew the candle out there was no black smoke and no black ball at the end of the wick. I burned the one I lit a long time and there is hardly any wax missing so I can see that they will burn for a long time.
