Reviews From the Archives: Kinfolk Candles


Note from Andrea: Our old Candlefind Review Board was our original candle company directory, with tons of listings and consumer reviews. All new consumer reviews belong on our current Candle Company Directory. We are using these posts to house the content of all prior reviews, as we didn’t want to lose that valuable information. Some companies may no longer be making candles and wax melts. We will still post those reviews, as you still may find the products on secondary markets such as eBay or Mercari, or in destash groups. Here you’ll find the prior reviews for the company Kinfolk Candles. This company is still open and you can find their directory listing here.

I had to try this company out because how could you resist pumpkin cornbread? I ordered some melter packs and the owners were nice enough to give me a free jar to test out. While all the fragrances smelled great cold, upon melting, the smell was faint and faded after 20 minutes or so. All the companies claim to be triple scented, but apparently they aren’t using the best fragrance oils. The little squares of melts are extremely sticky to pop out of the clamshell. I put the burner cup in the freezer to loosen the wax and that didn’t work. I had to scrape it off with a knife. The total soy wax blend just doesn’t work well in tart form. I haven’t burnt the jar yet, but will update. I want to like this company, but so far I’m not impressed.
