I was given the opportunity to review two of their candles of different scents. I was able to choose one scent to review while they chose the second scent. After much debate about which of their amazing scents I wanted, my husband and I decided to go with the Candy Cane scent. I was very excited to see what other scent they would choose to send. Our candles arrived within just a few days and were packaged very nicely. They had decided to choose the Log Cabin scent for me to review and I was very happy to see that since it was one of the scents I had debated on before choosing the Candy Cane.
First off let me just start by saying I love the simple design of these candles, they are very simple and look great anywhere I would like to put them, they fit into any décor. I also love the simple packaging that these candles come in the little brown boxes with the name of the scent on them really are cute and would make a wonderful addition to any gift basket.
The first scent we decided to burn was the Candy Cane since it’s the one we had chosen. Since they had arrived just in time for our Christmas parties, I thought that would be the perfect time to try them out. The Candy Cane scented candle burnt very cleanly and left the kitchen/dining room area smelling wonderful, it really gave our home a wonderful holiday feel! The candle itself lasted until way after the party guest had left and the scent in the house was just at the right level to make it a warm and inviting place.
The next scent we decided to try out was the one they chose for us the Log Cabin scent, and with us being really into nature, camping and well having lived in a log home for quite sometime, the name immediately jumped out at me and my first thoughts was this is got to smell great! My first impression was not wrong at all….we both totally love this scent and I can tell you that all my guest fell in love with it as well. I just love the mix of pine and cedar…it kinda reminds me of my dad working with the different woods out in his workshop and brought back so many memories of our family camping trips. I burnt this candle in just about every room in my home starting in the living room area and ending up in our master bed room while we were relaxing before bed. We just simply love it and that’s about as plain as it can be put…it’s a must try scent for sure.
We have had a terrific experience working with Soy Candles by Phebes and I can guarantee that I will be ordering more of the wonderful scents available online. I have a couple of baby showers to give this coming spring and I can most defiantly say I will be getting a couple of them for the baby gift baskets as part of the pampering mom part of the basket, I know my friends are going to love them.
If you are looking for some clean burning and awesome smelling candles, I highly recommend Soy Candles by Phebes and I’m sure you will be extremely happy with any of the scents that’s you happen to choose…..I’m just itching to try the Puppy Breath scent so it’s on my next order list!
