Old Factory Candles Review and Giveaway!

I am a self-confessed coffee lover and candle lover. That is why testing this product is like hitting two birds with one stone! I was so excited when I received the candles. I specifically chose to order these scents mainly because I haven’t yet bought a candle with a coffee scent.

The packaging is really cute. The box and bottles are something you can reuse afterwards. One box comes with 3 candles, each with a different scent. The ones I received are Coffee Bean, Hazelnut and Chai Tea. They are collectively called as Coffee Shop. 🙂

These candles are hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. According to the company, the candles burn clean and even for 20 hours. It has always been my preference to choose clean burning candles so that’s plus points for this product.

I have tested each and I’m now burning the Chai Tea while I’m writing this. I’ve noticed that they do burn clean. Because the candles are made from natural soy wax (produced from soy beans), they produce very little soot and they are less likely to trigger allergies than artificial waxes. The scents are spot on. The strongest scent out of these three is Hazelnut. It filled out the room with its scent right away when I lit it. The Coffee Bean scent smells like a mild scent of coffee. The most calming of them all is the Chai Tea.

These are candles that I would definitely buy. These candles are also perfect gift ideas. There’s a scent available for every room in your house. Old Factory offers the following scents:

Wish I can stay in bed all day but there’s just so many things I need to do! So here’s 1.4 liters of Starbucks Iced Coffee to start my day. 🙂 This bottle is HUGE. This is like ready-to-go coffee. Just pour it and you’re set since it’s lightly sweetened. I usually make my own coffee and just decided to give this one a try to keep me up during mornings when I’m too sleepy to even open up my eyes.

Time to flap my busy bee wings!

So I was sitting outside this meat shop while waiting for my mom, I’ve noticed this trash can full of cigars. Everybody knows how destructive cigarettes are and there is absolutely no point in reiterating that. No matter how many times you tell someone to stop smoking, it is still that person’s choice. So just respect other people’s choices, mind your own business and don’t ever mess with my coffee.
