With the weather cooling down, and the holidays upon us, it is time to get out the candles! For me, there is something about the warm glow of a candle that cozies up a house with the added effect of adding a festive element with the right scent! I have found that high quality candles make a wonderful gift to share at the holiday time as well – you can package them up with a few little goodies and instantly have a beautiful and thoughtful gift! Lissy of Lissy’s Lit Wicks Candle Company sent me two of her handmade, soy candles in exchange for my review.
What did I think?
When Lissy asked me to choose two candle scents to review – I was certain as I headed to her site that I would encounter all of the “normal” candle scents that you see with candle companies and handmade candles: vanilla, lavender, cinnamon – all great scents, but all one note. I am so happy to share that I could not have been more wrong! With incredible sounding scents like Vanilla Pumpkin Pie, Margarita and even Monkey Farts, Lissy’s Lit Wicks Candle Company has an in-depth list of scents to appease any nose!
I received Merlot and Peppermint soy candles and have to say, I am in love! The Merlot soy candle is a rich and savory scent that has hints of grape, cherry, currant and something earthy. This candle will make any wine lovers sense of smell light up in delight! This would make a beautiful gift paired with a bottle of merlot and a small box of chocolates – creating the perfect combination for a friend, coworker or hostess in your life!
The Peppermint soy candle is a holiday scent sensation in a jar! With a sweet and minty scent that is refreshing and clean, I am looking forward to burning this nearer to the holidays. I could easily see wrapping this up with a large mug, some hot cocoa packets and candy canes for a fun and festive treat that keeps on giving!
Not only do these candles smell great when not burning, but they burn beautifully and strongly, as well! They are fragrant and burn evenly. I have not had any issues with sooting or smoking from the candles and would definitely recommend them!
Lissy’s Lit Wicks Candle Company makes high quality candles in an array of amazing scents. She even takes custom orders to come up with a personalized candle scent for you! At just $8.00 for an 8-ounce, handmade soy candle, you cannot go wrong! Think of all the thoughtful and pleasing gifts you can make for under $20 by pairing these candles with matching gifts!
