Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review + Giveaway

Hey, guys!

Today I've got a review that EVERYONE can get into! For me, personally, I was excited to receive this product for two main reasons:

1. The selection! There were a LOT of themes and it was SO hard to choose. I would make up my mind to get the Vacation themed set, but then would wonder what the Coffee Shop set would smell like. Then, there's the fact that the holidays are coming up and there were TWO holiday themed sets! In the end, I selected the Winter Wonderland set which featured Hot Cocoa, Roasted Chestnut, and First Snow. Between all of the sets, there are 36 scents! The themes range from holiday to baby to 50 Shades (if you don't know....Google it) to "Man Cave". There's literally something for everyone and it makes it REALLY hard to choose!

2. I have cats. I don't mean two. Or three. Or four. I have ELEVEN. And needless to say, sometimes, the house doesn't smell the best. So while I set to cleaning, I can light one of these candles. I can't stress how strong these candles are without being overbearing! They don't bother me, and I'm pretty sensitive to perfumes and scents. They are definitely there...and they definitely work! These are GREAT for pet odors! The scent isn't chemically or over processed. I'm not sure how to describe it except to say that it smells very natural. The Hot Cocoa is AMAZING! It smells NOT like fake chocolate, but like a Hot Cocoa straight out of the mug! I was blown away by how realistic it was! I'm sure that someone would fall for it should you blindfold them and put them to the test!

Aside from the selection and the fact that they help with pet odors, these candles are fantastic because of how long they last! Previous to this set of candles, I bought a set of Glade candles. I forgot that they were lit during my one hour nap. I wake up and suddenly...no more candles. And they were EXPENSIVE! The Old Factory Candles advertise a 20 hour burn time. I personally have not tested this, because I want them to last as long as possible. BUT I will tell you that I burned them for a couple of hours with NO major loss of candle volume. I have no doubt that these candles will last beyond 20 hours.

The wick was very easy to light and it caught fire instantly. I have used candles in the past that took a few seconds to ignite. They are also long enough. No infuriating tiny wicks to try to fight with!

As an art teacher by day, I have to include the following: they are hand-poured! These aren't processed and machine man-handled, guys! They are an artform and each candle has had special time and attention dedicated to it. In total, per kit, you get 6 oz of hand-poured goodness for $25. That's also at least 60 hours of burn time! Well-known, department store candles don't last that long, and they are far from handcrafted!

The value of what you get is a steal!
