NOTE: We are re-running this giveaway as there were technical difficulties last week.
Today’s review is a little bit different than our usual reviews here at Candlefind. When Mohawk Valley Trading Company approached us about their products, we were a little unsure. Afterall, we yammer on and on about highly scented wax…but 100% beeswax candles? But the more I learned about these candles, the more & more excited I became. First up, I’m reviewing their taper candles. Be sure to read all the way through, as we’ll be giving away a sweet goodie package that includes a set of these taper candles.
About Mohawk Valley Trading Co.
Mohawk Valley Trading Company is located in Utica, New York, and offers high quality, unprocessed products such as maple sugar, honey, beeswax candles, natural skin care products, and handmade soap. Their candles are 100% pure beeswax and are beautiful. They offer taper and pillar candles, votives, tealights, Menorah candles, and even birthday candles! The candles I’m reviewing today are their taper candles, but I do have other ones to review later this month.
First Impressions of My Candles
I had not used 100% beeswax candles before, so I was not sure what to expect. The candles arrived perfectly and carefully packaged. The 10″ taper candles were wrapped as a pair and were very firm! I don’t know why I thought they would be soft. They were a soft, buttery yellow and simply beautiful. They had a nice, light, sweet smell to them. The nice soft smell of honey.
I lit my candles in a breakfast nook area on a dining table. They looked so incredibly elegant and romantic! I can’t recall the last time I had a romantic dinner by candlelight, but this scene made me long for more.
How Did My Candles Burn?
I was impressed with how these tapers burned from start to finish. Super. Clean. There was ZERO black sooting and the candles were dripless and the wick was self-trimming. The flames were bright and steady, providing a beautiful glow for the table. I found myself coming back into the room repeatedly just to stare at their beauty! They gave off a nice, light scent of honey. Mmmm!
The candles were also super slow burning, lasting through our dinnertime and able to come back for another round.
Closing To My Review
As my introduction to 100% beeswax candles, Mohawk Trading Company provided a good one. I can’t say enough good things about these beautiful candles. I think what amazed me most was the natural smell of honey that lingered around well after lighting these candles. I’m super excited to see how these other candles perform. I would love for our readers to be able to experience these candles, too. That’s why we’re giving a nice prize package away this week – to arrive to you just in time for your Halloween decor!
