Soy Candles by Phebes – Review & Giveaway!
When Mike from Soy Candles by Phebes contacted me and offered to send me some candles to review – there was no doubt in my mind that the answer was yes! I had visited their website a few days prior to when they contacted me, and at that point I had already had it in my mind that “Sweet Cotton” was a candle I needed in my life. So this was quite a fortuitous offer!
According to their website, Soy Candles by Phebes are handmade in America (Georgia) and are hand poured at the time of each order – talk about made to order! The candles use only essential oils and plant derived fragrance oils, and are blended with 100% American grown soy beans! To boot, they are vegan owned and operated!
And if the fact that they are vegan made and eco-friendly doesn’t win you over, you need to check out their list of available fragrances. I have to say the variety of scents they offer on their website truly are both unique and modern. I was lucky enough to receive the scent that I had been coveting, “Sweet Cotton” and a surprise scent “Osmanthus Fragrant Tea Olive”. Check out the sleek and simple glasses the candles are sent in, which are unadorned with stickers and are all neutral in color.
“Sweet Cotton” was everything it is described as “Fresh Green Apple with hints of Orange & Pineapple on a Downy Base”. This candle is out of this world delightful! I love a crisp fruity candle, and I am not exaggerating when I say that this is my officially my favorite summer smell. Even unlit this candle’s fragrance fills our office – which also houses the cat’s litter box, so that says a lot. The strength of this candle is quite unreal, and upon entering the room my nostril’s are instantly greeted with a light fruity fragrance. I LOVE IT!
The “Osmanthus Frangrant Tea Olive” was my surprise scent. Traditionally, I enjoy two types of candles: fruity and desserty, florals rarely make their way into my home. However this scent manages to pull off floral with a hint of fruity – and that’s how it won me over. Again, the strength of these candles is astounding. I’ve found the perfect home for this calming scent – in my bathtub for a spa shower/bath. It’s soothing and quickly fills the bathroom with it’s aroma.
