A Flame Above the Rest

Disclosure: The item(s) mentioned below were provided complimentary for the purpose of an honest review. The opinions stated here are based upon my personal experience with the product(s) and are entirely my own. Regardless, I only recommend products or services that I feel would benefit my readers.

I am a die-hard candle lover. What does that mean? I love candles... A LOT! Like a lot, a lot. As in, I have a gigantic drawer in my dresser dedicated totally to all things that smell good. That also means that I am very picky when it comes to the items I use to fragrance my home. I do not tend to buy candles or home fragrances from just any store, instead, I prefer to buy candles from specialty stores such as Yankee Candle and Bath and Body Works. They offer a variety of scents, their candles burn for a very long time, and most importantly, their scents are pleasant, enjoyable, and fill a large area of the home. I am always excited to try candles because I use them so often that my collection can always stand to be added to. I recently tried Scentiments Soy Scented Candles, and am here today to talk about my experience with them.

Scentiments are unique because they offer a bit of a personal touch. The label on each candle can read one of 4 things: "Happy Birthday", "Family", "A Friend" or "Sister". These make them especially nice to give as gifts. They have a chic-country style to them, and come in four different fragrances: Vanilla, Cinnamon, Lavender or Cool Cotton. Each candle is made with high-quality soy and fragranced with essential oils. This gives you a special combination the ensures an even, clean burn, and a scent that spreads around the house without being overwhelming. They are also packaged in re-usable Mason jars, which are great for crafters, or anyone who could use a handy jar around the house. And lastly, they come with a miniature card around the rim of the candle where you can leave a note if you are gifting the item, or simple remove if it is for yourself.

I really have enjoyed my candle thus far. I chose to get the Cool Linen scent with the jar that reads: "Family: Where life begins and love never ends." It's very appropriate for myself. At this point, I have burned the candle for SEVERAL hours. As you can see, I never even snapped a pic before I used it. It was filled to the bottom of the rim with wax, and the wick was nice and white at first. I have to say that this does burn slowly and evenly, which certainly elongates the life of the candle. I have experienced so many cheaper candles that burn through the center only, leaving wax all around that is wasted. I enjoy the ease of candles, as you simply light them and reap the benefits of doing so. The scent is very crisp and clean, and reminds me of laundry soap and sunshine. It's really a great Springtime scent, but it's also very neutral since most people really love the fresh, clean scent of soap. I am interested in trying the other scents too, and think that the Vanilla and Cinnamon would be ideal for this time of year. Plus, they would make great and thoughtful gifts.

I highly recommend the Scentiments Soy Candles with 10 stars:

If you are interested in purchasing one for yourself, or someone you know, they are available on Amazon for only $15.97. An excellent price for such a quality product.
