Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review + Giveaway

I received this item in exchange for an honest review. Sponsored giveaway.

I have one more review for you today, and I'm very excited about this one. Today is my first candle review! I really love candles, so much so that I used to make them for myself and my family... so I think I'm a pretty good judge of what makes a good candle.


I was provided with a set of 3 two ounce soy candles to review. I got to pick the set, and since it's so close to Christmas I decided to go with the Happy Holidays set.



This set comes in 3 Christmasy themed scents:

Christmas Tree
Candy Cane
Gingerbread


These scents are wonderful and not overpowering. As a migraine sufferer, I can say these candles have not bothered me so that's always a good thing. My boyfriend hasn't said anything about the scents so I'm assuming they haven't bothered him either. I expected more of a pine scent from Christmas Tree. It smells nice, but I can't quite place what it smells like exactly. Gingerbread is nice and has more of a gingerbread scent the longer I burnt it so maybe Christmas Tree will as well. Candy Cane is definitely my favorite among the three with it's perfect peppermint scent I feel it is perfect for this time of year.


Blurb:
These candle gift sets each contain 3 different scented 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. So everyone is sure to find something perfect for every occasion, every room in the house, and all the special someones in your life. (source: Tomoson.com)

Review:
As I already mentioned, I love these scents. I've burnt Gingerbread the longest so far (about 10 hours) and it has burnt clean. It is no where near being done, so I do believe the claim it will burn for another 10 hours evenly. I haven't had any issues with these. Some of the other sets sound amazing, and I'd really like to try some of them myself! Romance and 50 Shades especially strike out at me, though I'm not sure about leather as a scent. That one seems kind of odd, but it would be interesting to try. Of course I LOVE that these are US made, and I do feel there are enough variance in scents that everyone could find a scent they love. These would definitely be perfect for gifts. These sets are normally $30 but right now they're on sale for $25.
