D-n-D Ranch Aromas Review and Giveaway



To me there is nothing more important than to have a nice clean house and for it to smell good, not just for company but all the time! My husband tends to call me a “neat freak” and says I have OCD when it comes to my house staying clean and he can’t stand the fact that I like candles….ok, so I like a lot of candles and I have a couple in each room for a different scent just to mix things up a bit. So with my love of candles and a clean house out there I was delighted when Michelle of D-n-D Ranch Aromas agreed to let me host a review and giveaway of their wonderful candles!

About D-n-D Aromas (Taken From Website):

Despite the fun candle themes, seriously scented candles live at D-n-D Ranch Aromas Candle & Gift Shop and www.DnDRanchAromas.com. D-n-D Ranch Aromas candles are fantastically fragrant with scents to die for that last. D-n-D Ranch Aromas scented candles are created by a candle lover for candle lovers. Chief Candle Creator Michelle Duncan hand pours every one at the Colorado Springs retail shop, 2616 W Colorado Avenue (Shop #1), in the heart of Old Colorado City. At D-n-D Ranch Aromas Candle & Gift Shop and DnDRanchAromas.com, you’ll find fantastically fragrant, long-lasting, hand-poured scented candles in countrified jars (mason, jelly and more), keepsake tins, votives, tealights and tarts. Think of D-n-D Ranch Aromas scented candles for all your special holidays and occasions – any and all life events. You can even customize and personalize. One scented candle at a time, we’re fulfilling the candle lover’s dream of a long-lasting, fragrant candle. D-n-D Ranch Aromas: Seriously fragrant candles Scent from the Country.

Our All Year-Round Candles are named after Our D-n-D Ranch animals:
Our big horses are Andee, Harlee, Limoges, Nibbee, Rosee, Rustee, Starr and Wolf.
Our miniature horses are Bentlee, Joee, Coco and JoHannah.
Our miniature donkey is BobbeeJo.
Our miniature potbellied pig is Bubba.
Our goats are Banditt, Boomer, Brandee, Joolz, Gizzee and Joye.
Our ducks are Krakkers and Krumbs.
Our chickens are Chikkee, Peeches, Peanut and SweetPea.
Our dogs are Behr, LaKia, Max, Memphis, Jazzmin, Ceezar and Missassee.

Our Thoughts:

We were given the opportunity to choose a scent for a candle to review and let me tell you it was a chore to choose the perfect scent that both Chad and I could agree on and he didn’t want any part of it so I set off on my scent journey alone…and after a few hours of going back and forth with a few scents I finally decided on the Round ‘em Up scent since it was a masculine/unisex scent and it was going in our guest bathroom, which is most used and we have the whole fly fishing theme going on in there I just felt it was the perfect fit! This scent is described as smelling as Spruce Orchard so I figured Chad and I could agree pretty well on this one!

I could not wait to get this candle and get it put in the bathroom to see how Chad liked it, so when it arrived he was at work so I went ahead and lit it and set it up on the sink for about 30 minuets or so and by then you could smell it out in the kitchen and boy did it smell so good it took me a minuet to figure out what that smell was! When I extinguished the candle it was about an hour before Chad got home and as soon as he entered the bathroom/laundry room he immediately asked me what the candle was and where I got it because he really liked it and said we need to get one for the other bathroom!! Score one for me and one for D-n-D Ranch Aromas, no nagging hubby because the candle was to “girly” or he just didn’t like the scent….HE LOVED IT!!!!

Bottom Line:

We are extremely happy with our candle from D-n-D Ranch Aromas and will defiantly be purchasing more of their candles in the very near future!!! I also want to send a huge thank you out to D-n-D Ranch Aromas and Michelle for helping me finally find some candles that my husband and I both really enjoy and stop our candle bickering!!

I also want to mention that the candle burns very cleanly and just looks beautiful with our d├ęcor and the keepsakes tin that it came in is very lovely all in itself, growing up in a small country town here in Arkansas we can both appreciate the beautiful scenes on the tin! Also, we have had this candle for a few weeks now and I am happy to say we have used it almost daily and it still has life to it and still smells as great as day one!!!

If you love candles and a clean fresh scent D-n-D Ranch Aromas candles are defiantly for you! I have yet to find a “high dollar” brand that has a scent that the hubby and I agree on but in one shot D-n-D Ranch Aromas nailed it and the prices so much more reasonable and affordable than the “high dollar” brands that don’t smell or burn near as good or as clean!
