Review: Old Factory Candle Gift Set



I was recently sent this great Old Factory Candle Set to test at home for free and I have to say that I love it. These candles have such a great scent. I could smell them as soon as I opened the lid on them and as you know if you like scented candles, some don't always put out enough scent after they are lit. There's no worry about that with this set because a little while after lighting one, I could smell the scent of it all the way in the other room. 

I think the hardest part about testing this candle set was choosing one of the sets because there are several to choose from and each set has three different scents in it. I like these so much and since I already burn candles all the time. I decided on the Happy Holidays Scents which include: Candy Cane, Christmas Tree and Ginger Bread. 

I like lighting candles as opposed to incense, sprays, or plug ins because those things really don't last. I used to use incense but the smoke gets to me now and I have a hard time breathing but candles are great because you just light one and let it burn all day, snuff it out at night and light it again the next morning. 


Not all candles are the same or will put out the same amount of scent and I've found that soy candles like this set are cleaner burning, meaning they won't get your walls all blackened where you burn a lot of candles and soy candles seem to distribute the scent a lot better than other types of candles. These candles burn clean for over 20 hours each and they smell so good.

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.

  4. I prefer candles over other scent options for many of the same reasons you listed above. I wasn't aware of that soy tidbit, I've just always chalked it up to buying cheap ones from Walmart vs more expense ones from fragrance boutiques. You just gave me the urge to light some of mine. :)

  13. I feel the same way about scents. I typically burn candles mostly in winter when I can't throw open the windows to freshen the air.

    Thanks for a chance to win some nicely scented candles.
