The Outer Banks Candle Company - Review

When the smell of a pleasantly fragrant candle wafts through a room in my home, it tends to relax me and I feel more at ease.  There's a million candle companies out there, but not all are the same.  I've burnt my fair share of candles and I'm very drawn to the ones that have a long-lasting smell, burn evenly, and are pretty to look at.  It's a perfect trifecta when all three are achieved.
I received several candle samples from The Outer Banks Candle Company for review and I'm smitten with them.  The company itself is a small business out of North Carolina, where all the candles are poured by hand.  Whether you want a votive candle or a pillar candle, you'll find perfectly crafted ones at The Outer Banks Candle Company.

For instance, the Seasonal Trinity Candle is a pillar candle of three colors and three different fragrances that all complement each other.  Or there's the glass candles from the Sea Scape Collection.  The all natural soy wax candles are filled with fragrances of the sea.  They come in clear glass containers and have a lid. 

I'm an admirer of all the candles from The Outer Banks Candle Company but have a small favoritism for the Vintage-Style Soy Candles.  (Shush, don't tell the other candles I said that!)  These particular candles are made with all natural uncolored soy wax.  But, just because they're uncolored doesn't mean they're unscented.  Available in either mason jars or jelly jars, these candles have a mature look about them and are available in a variety of scents.
The Outer Banks Candle Company may be small business, but they are big heart when it comes to candles.  It shows in the workmanship and the scents.

Whether you want to gift a candle to someone special in your life or fill up your home with fine fragrances, I recommend The Outer Banks Candle Co.

I'm not a candle person most of the time; except for this time of year. There's something magical about lighting candles in the dark around Christmas time.
