Candles by Victoria Order Review
I go through a lot of phases or "obsessions" as my husband calls them, and they come and go but one that has absolutely stuck as been Candles by Victoria. For those of you who don't know about this amazing company, they are a small, family owned candle company based out of Van, Texas. Every candle is hand poured when you place your order and Victoria is known for her immaculate customer service. She is not satisfied unless you are with your order. This company offers over 700 fragrances in a variety of candle jars and tarts.
I placed this order while Victoria was having her New Year sale, so I got 15% off of this order. I am extremely happy with this order, as always. I definitely found some new favorites. On to the review!
22 oz Tureen in Halo Black Glitter Scent: Bella Swan
First of all, this is a beautiful candle. Look at that holographic glitter! The glitter itself isn't so much black as it is a bluish gray. That is actually what I wanted since its going in our gray/blue bedroom. :)The scent itself is one of my all time favorite scents. It is such a beautiful fragrance. To me, it smells like lilac, vanilla, and musk. A lot of people say they smell grape, but I think its the lilac mixed with vanilla. Its beautiful no matter what you smell in it though. My hubby likes it too. Bonus!
8 oz Jelly Jars:
Country Berry Hotcakes - I've had this before in a Scent Shot and it was a lot stronger on the berry scent. In the candle I smell more of the doughy/hotcake scent. This actually reminds me a lot of her Jelly Donut scent, but I think I prefer this one.
Lemon Vanilla - I think this is my favorite scent of the order. It is such a fresh, clean, refreshing scent. Just the two simple scents of lemon and vanilla combined make one of the best fragrances ever.
Black Raspberry Vanilla - A dupe of the BBW fragrance. This is MUCH stronger than BBW's scent. It actually reminds me of these gummy Japanese lychee candies I get sometimes. Yeah...it smells just like those taste. Crazy! Its such a sweet and fruity scent.
Pink Cupcake - Ahhh this one is sooooo good! I held off on ordering this because I didn't think it would smell authentic or that it would be very strong. I was totally wrong. It smells JUST like funfetti cake. Hubby smelled it and the first thing he said was "Funfetti." Hilarious! I want to eat this.
Lavender Apple -This is an amazing scent. I can't stop smelling it. It reminds me of something that I can't put my finger on. Somehow it smells relaxing and like fall to me. I LOVE it and need it in a larger candle.
Pink Sugar - A dupe of Aquolina's Pink Sugar perfume. I've never owned the perfume but I've smelled it multiple times. This is exactly like the perfume. Sweet, cotton candyish, and girly. I got this to mix with my Rose SS for my Create-A-Scent, Pink Rose. Love it!
Free Scent Shot: Rosemary Mint - Just like always, I never would have ordered this on my own, but I love this scent. Its so relaxing and refreshing. It smells just like a fresh sprig of mint that you would crush and put in mojitos. Its sweet and fresh all at once. I think this will be the perfect scent to melt on one of the first days of spring with all the windows open and a soft breeze.
So that's the order! I am super pleased and can't wait to place my next order, whenever that will be. Hopefully soon! Have a great weekend everyone! Check back for more recipes and menus and shopping lists for the week! I have lots planned for you!
