Gift Idea + GIVEAWAY: Old Factory Candles | Fall Harvest Trio

Occasionally people will take notice of the candles I have burning in the backgrounds of my videos, and ask me about my favorite candles or scents. The truth is: I don't have one! I always enjoy trying new candles, and experimenting with fragrance blends - they can make such a difference in the ambiance of a home. Naturally, I was ecstatic to have the opportunity to try a new-to-me candle brand that offers not one, but three candles in one gift set - just in time for the season gifting, no?

A little bit more about Old Factory Candles: 
Each candle burns clean and even for 20 hours. Hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. Each gift set is themed around a group of related fragrances.

They were kind enough to give me my pick of the 12 different scent profiles they offer, and I had to go with Fall Harvest - a trio that includes Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry, and Autumn Leaves. While they offer the option to gift wrap, I tend to like the rustic packaging the candles already arrive in. You open it up to find three mini jars neatly tucked away, and ready to burn. When lit, the scents are noticeable, but not overwhelming, and don't have a hint of fake "chemical" smell about them. I think they really captured the essence of their namesakes, and were fun to burn together in difference combinations. You could walk into my apartment and almost think I had pumpkin pie with a cranberry side ready to dish up - until you realized that cooking in an apartment my size is a joke. Overall, two thumbs up! You'll definitely see them burning in videos to come, and they might even make it on my shopping list for those who are particularly hard to buy for this holiday season (hello, "Man Cave" trio)!
