Hello, everyone! Today I have a candle review from the brand A to Z Candles. I found this brand after I was researching how awful regular candles are for you. (Seriously, research it, it’s scary.) An ad for them popped up on my Instagram and after seeing the positive comments on their page, I was ready to buy one of their candles! I was hesitant, in the beginning, of buying their candles only because they are an online company and it’s not like I can smell the candles beforehand. Also I’ve found that a lot of soy wax candles smell nice, but don’t make the room that scent. But, like I said, the positive comments sold me.
I went ahead and bought a 4oz candle in the scent Gingerbread for $12. While buying it, I did think it was a tad bit pricey for only 4 ounces, but I love supporting small businesses, and when I received my candle there was a piece of paper with this statement, “Don’t be fooled by the size of your candle! Soy wax burns slower than your big box paraffin candles.”
There was in issue in the delivery with my candle, not because of the company, but because there was a snowstorm and the post office couldn’t deliver it that day. I only mention this because I reached out to A to Z and within 15 minutes I had a reply. I love great customer service! I’m so serious, if a company has an amazing product and awful customer service, odds are I won’t repurchase from them.
My candle smells amazing!!!! It smells like cinnamon and ginger on a cold winter day. I don’t know how this happened, they must have magical candles, but it made me feel all warm and cozy inside.
I trimmed the wick, as instructed, and lit the candle in my bedroom. With 10 minutes my whole bedroom smelled like gingerbread, and within 30 minutes my whole apartment smelled that amazing.
I let it burn for about an hour and it didn’t look like I had burned a ton of my candle, which was my fear for a 4oz candle. I was afraid I would burn through it so quickly, which is not the case. This is a photo of my candle after the hour of burning:
When it cooled down there was barely a dent in the candle. Sometimes I will even just open the candle lid and not burn it, and the smell will lightly dust over my bedroom. Plus, the jar it comes in is so cute and you can 100% reuse it. In the end, I highly recommend A to Z candles, in fact I can’t wait to get my hands on their ‘Saturday Morning Cartoons’ candle because I heard it smells like Froot Loops. I love that they are vegan, cruelty-free, and a small business. Let me know in comments if you’ve tried these candles and what scent I should try next!
