I love candles. Love them. (Especially if they smell yummy.) So when the Goose Creek Candle Company asked me to review their candles, I was definitely up for it.
The sent me two of their American Heirloom jar candles to try.
I love candles that smell like food. If a candle can make it smell like I’ve been baking something delicious, it’s a really good thing.
These jars are a really cool shape and have pretty lids too.
In addition to providing ambient light and a fabulous fragrance to your home, candles are supposed to be part of your decor… right? These will fit in anywhere, and the jars can totally be reused once the candle has burned away.
These candles smell fantastic even when they aren’t lit… that’s how great they smell. Handsome Hubby is a big ‘ole persnickety pain when it comes to candles. “The smell is too strong (or too sweet or too flowery)… it’s throwing off soot… it’s making my throat itchy…”
I did not hear any of those complaints with these candles. In fact I burned the Maple Toddy candle for about 6 hours before he mentioned that it was getting “sooty”. That was my bad. I burned it longer than I should have and the wicks got really long. I trimmed them and then it was fine.
Also? It burned evenly. I hate it when you have a candle that burns down the middle, leaving you with just a bunch of wax. (Even though I know how to use the wax to make another candle, it still bugs me.) The Goose Creek candle burned at an even rate.
Goose Creek is giving two of my readers a 16 oz, 2-wick candle from their American Heirloom collection. How cool is that? Just go check out their site and tell me which scent you’d choose if you won.
