A to Z Candles 2018 Halloween Collection
'Tis the season for stocking up on Halloween candles and I love finding new companies that offer vegan and cruelty-free candles, like A to Z Candles. This woman-owned and operated company uses high-quality soy wax (from non-GMO soy grown in the USA) and premium fragrances to make all their candles. They just released their new 2018 Halloween collection and all the scents are to-die-for! They kindly sent me their five new Halloween candles for review and I'm so stoked to be able to share my thoughts on them below.
I received five adorable mini candles for review in the scents All Hallows' Eve, Haunted Cemetery, Hocus Pocus, Pumpkin Patch, and Trick or Treat. All Hallows' Eve smells like blackened licorice, smoky cloves, and spicy cinnamon. I love burning this one in the kitchen and it is such a unique smell. Haunted Cemetery evokes the feeling of wandering around a graveyard at night and smells like fresh-tilled soil, mossy oaks, incense, and cedarwood. I love the earthy, woodsy scent of this one. Hocus Pocus is a bewitching mix of cinnamon bark, bergamot, cannabis flower, jasmine, rose, musk, black tea, and patchouli. I simply adore the mix of florals and spice and this scent is one-of-a-kind! Pumpkin Patch smells like taking a hayride at a countryside pumpkin patch and apple farm on a crisp fall day. Trick or Treat smells like a full bag of candy on Halloween night, sweet candy corn mixed with tart candy apple and a hint of rich chocolate.
I also received a larger size candle in Apple Cider Donut scent. This tart and sugary scent was so good and even in a large bedroom it managed to fill the space with its smell of apple cider, donuts, vanilla, tonka bean, and musk. This candle smelled good enough to eat!
As you can tell from the scintillating scent descriptions, the candles are absolutely intoxicating! They all have a subtle, natural scent that is not overpowering but still fill the space they are in with a lovely smell. Plus, even after the candle is blown out the scent lasts in the room for a few hours! Another bonus is that the candles have a very long burn time as well since they are made with soy wax, with the 4 ounce size burning for approximately 30 hours, the 9 ounce for 70 hours, the 16 ounce for 100 hours, and the 26 ounce for 200 hours! It's amazing how long these last, especially since I want to burn them all the time as they smell so incredibly good.
Besides candles, A to Z also offers wax melts, reed diffusers, room and body spray, car fresheners, and more! They also offer many more scents in an array of different smells to evoke different seasons and moods. Besides the Halloween candle collection, I would also love to try their autumn-inspired scents, including Pecan Pumpkin Waffles, Autumn Orchard, Falling Leaves, Caramel Apple, Autumn Wreath, and more! How amazing do those sound?
A to Z Candles not only makes incredible vegan candles, but also sponsors several animal sanctuaries and donates to them every month. When you purchase candles from A to Z, you aren't only supporting an independent business, but you are also helping to care for rescued farm animals.
I can't recommend A to Z Candles enough - their candles smell amazing, come in a variety of unique scents, are eco-friendly/vegan/cruelty-free, they donate to animal sanctuaries, and the owner really cares about her craft and is involved in every aspect of handcrafting the candles.
You can browse all the different candles and more that A to Z has to offer on their website! And don't forget to sign up for their email list while you're there so you get first dibs on candle releases and special offers (you get 15% off your next purchase just for signing up!).
Until next time, stay spooky!
