Old Factory Candles Review & Giveaway

It's that time of year again. Hot cocoa, warm baths and candles! I know, I know, we don't want to say goodbye to summer....but why not make the best of the season. Old Factory candles can do just that! With 12 different scent sets, you're sure to find one that you'll love! Old Factory candles are hand made right here in the good 'ole USA. Each candle is made with natural soy wax and has self trimming wicks. Each dainty jar is just 2 oz. but is said to burn for a whopping 20 hours! That's just incredible!

So basically....I'm a sucker for cute packaging. Two identical products can be put in different packaging and I'm willing to pay a bit more just for the packaging that I prefer. Anybody else suffer from 'cute packaging syndrome'?! I'm also a sucker for old fashioned, country style products. These candles are that and more! I absolutely love the simple, brown paper/cardboard style packaging that these come in. This would be absolutely perfect for a gift! Heck, you can even have it pre-wrapped with a gift message right from Amazon!

With so many unique scents, it's really hard to choose just one set. Buuuuuuut....I had to so I went with the 'Happy Holidays' set.'s a bit early for these scents...I usually wait until after Thanksgiving...but hey...don't judge! ;)
With my set, I received the Christmas Tree, Candycane and Gingerbread scents. My favorite being the Peppermint...but I'm slightly biased to minty scents. Yum! Since I already knew the scents, I grabbed an unsuspecting guest to take a stab at guessing. First was the Christmas Tree. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to pick out the scent, but that is kind of a tough one. Knowing what it was already, I could tell that it was pine-y scented. Then came the Peppermint. Well...that one is pretty easy. However, it isn't overpowering, so it did take a second for her to name the scent. Lastly was the Gingerbread. Literally 2 seconds after opening the top, she said Gingerbread. What!?!? I thought for sure she cheated some how...but must have literally smelled that identical to actual gingerbread. Pretty crazy, right?! For your convenience, I'll put the complete list of scent sets which by the way are clickable:
