Our Own Candle Company – French Vanilla Review

Set in a classic mason jar with a thick glass handle, this candle imbues any room with a homey and traditional feel.

Wax Type: Soy and paraffin blend

Is it Scent-sational?
With the sweet smell of French Vanilla, this candle recreates the nostalgia of baking cookies in Grandma’s kitchen. Praise is given to the natural, rich scent that’s detected as soon as the jar is opened.

Don’t be surprised if this candle triggers a spontaneous run to the bakery!

The light vanilla aroma, which is described as smooth and delightful, has a gentle scent throw. I found this candle to give off a very natural vanilla scent as opposed to the cheap vanilla smell that you will often find in a lot of other candles. Fans of subtle background aromas will love the way this candle doesn’t overpower a small space.

This candle is less suitable for grand, spacious rooms. However, when lit under the right conditions, such as in an air-conditioned area, the mellow scent is carried much farther. If you’re moving around a lot, the solid handle makes it convenient to tote this candle safely from room to room.

Burn Quality and Longevity:
The wicks in these candles are slow-burning and glow all the way to the other end without drowning. The candle burns evenly, with a nice melt pool around half an inch deep, leaving no wasted wax mounded around the outer rim.

Many users clock this candle with a burn time close to the 100 hours with which it is officially described. Trimming the wicks often will also help extend the life.

Unless you have very long, thin fingers, a BBQ matchstick or candle lighter is helpful for when these candles reach the bottom of the narrow jars.

Cost and Value:

The very modest upfront investment, combined with brilliant burn quality, pleasing smell, and good duration, grants this candle a fantastic overall value. This candle makes a great alternative to the slightly more expensive Yankee candles out there.

    The smell of the candles are not very strong at all I was very disappointed with that. The candle itself looks so good and smells awesome when you open it. But when you burn the candle the scent is very week!!!

      We hear you on it not being very strong. We also found this one to be a little weak, but it was okay for a small room. It would be nice if they’d get a bit more throw to it though!

      Thanks for the comment 🙂
