I've mentioned before that I am crazy sensitive to fragrance. I haven't been inside Bath & Body Works in over two years, and I don't even bother smelling candles or air fresheners in the store. I love nice smells, but the synthetic stuff....nope. Headaches and nausea galore.
It's frustrating because I want the house to smell nice and I especially love candles. I've made a point to look for soy candles as they burn cleaner, but even so, many still use synthetic fragrance versus essential oils. If I am lucky enough to find something that fits the bill, it generally makes my wallet scream at the insane price. Eeesh!
I was definitely intrigued when I heard about Old Factory Candles. They met my criteria for soy base with natural fragrance, and came in a set of three smaller candles. That was great to me because I have on many occassions liked a candle in the store then burnt it once at home only to find I couldn't stand it! Then I was stuck with a used candle I couldn't return. The small size is a great way to see what works without a big commitment, and $25 for 3 (in a super cute box, mind you) isn't bad at all!
|Great packaging for a gift!|
Old Factory has several themed choices from Fall and Holiday Scents, to the lighter "spa day" set which I chose: it included cucumber, green tea, and lemongrass scents. The lemongrass is my favorite of the three; a fresh, clean scent in the house! Also, I've been burning it for two weeks now and although it's small, it's still going!
|aren't they cute?|
And good news! Old Factory is giving one of you a set to try in your choice of fragrance! Simply enter below!
