Old Factory Candle Review + Giveaway


Old Factory Candle Review and Giveaway
*This post is sponsored by Brand Backer and Old Factory, but all opinions are my own*
I have a confession to make: I have a crazy obsession with candles! Seriously, if I'm notified of a candle sale, I will go and stock up even if I just bought like 5 candles the week before. I have a collection of them growing under my bed (that's my unburned stash only) and will light one or two everyday. So when I was asked by Old Factory to try out their candles, I was immediately on board. 

Old Factory Candle Review and Giveaway

I was given the choice of several different gift sets, each with a theme. I was very tempted to get the Fall Harvest (Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry and Autumn Leaves) or the Happy Holidays(Christmas Tree, Candy Cane and Gingerbread) set, but let's be real, I already have stocked up on similar scents. So instead, I decided to choose the Winter Wonderland set which comes with First Snow, Hot Cocoa and Roasted Chestnut. LA doesn't really have a true winter, so this would be the closest I could get to getting in that winter spirit that embodies all the holidays and makes for a perfect reading ambiance.

They honestly smell amazing, although my favorite one is roasted chestnuts! It makes me feel like I'm in front of a fireplace, even though I'm nowhere near one. It's a good thing that these candles burn for up to 20 hours. It means I can enjoy the scents for at least the next two weeks or so. I also love their low-key simple packaging.  What's also cool is that they are hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. They are great for your home or even as a gift (um have you seen the Black Friday ads that are out already?). 

Well lucky for one of you, Old Factory has decided to giveaway one of their sets. You can choose from the ones mentioned above, or from the following: New BornCoffee Shop , Fresh & CleanHigh as A KiteMan CaveRomanceSpa DayVacation, and Fifty Shades (uh hello, have you seen the trailers?!). Enter below, you have until November 23rd at 12 am. Good luck :) Also available on Amazon.


Love,
Astrid

  13. I like using Scentsy because I don't like burning candles. My cat burned her face on one a long time ago so with pets they make me nervous now.

  26. Beautiful candles. I also like candle light and probably about 90% of the time I light a candle and put at the middle of the table during dinner. It just sets such a cozy and beautiful vibe, when we're together having food and chat :)
