Intro To My Candle Review
Yeah, the holidays are over but they live on here at Candlefind because we have a lot of reviews to get up on the site. We were overrun with holiday candles, so I didn’t get a chance to burn this Silver Bells candle from Colonial Candles until recently. And boy, what I was missing! I loved every bit of it, so let me break it down from beginning to end.
I love the look of the Pop Color jar collection from Colonial Candle. They come in an array of bright, fun colors, but the Silver Bells candle was an opaque white and the lid was a shiny gold. Festive, indeed. The scent name, company name, and scent notes are all imprinted on the jar – there is no label. So if wanting to repurpose this vessel, you won’t be able to remove the branding. Still, it was a really nice candle jar and one I can see having a number of purposes once all the wax is gone.
On cold sniff, I smelled a little bit of a zesty citrus note and then what I thought were perfumey notes.
Do you know what silver bells would smell like? Orange blossom mixed with snow accord and sage.
I’m not sure what snow accord is supposed to smell like, but I certainly got the orange blossom part. The cold sniff was light but pleasant.
I lit this 3-wick candle in a large, open living area and was soon greeted by that gorgeous citrusy scent again. It was crisp and zesty and just a fresh, clean fragrance. As the candle continued to burn, I got some green, earthy notes and I still smelled a little bit of perfume-like notes in there. Would that be the snow accord? I don’t know, but it was complex and fabulous! It was still a softer type scent, but it threw really well. I knew I had this candle going even as I was walking down the hallways.
How Did My Candle Perform?
It took no time to get a full wax melt pool with this candle. It went all the way to the edges without a problem – no wax hangup on the sides of the jar. The candle wicks were pretty thin, so I did need to snuff the candle out every hour or so to trim them and keep my flames from getting too wild for me. I saw just a little bit of black soot if I let those wicks go too long and when moving the candle. Otherwise a very clean burn. It burned slower than the 3-wick candles from Bath & Body Works, too, so another plus!
I loved just about everything about this candle. A few minor annoyances didn’t keep me from giving it the Editor’s Choice badge. I hope this candle is around next season, because I’d love to get and gift it!
About Colonial Candle
For more than 100 years, Colonial Candle has been burning brightly in the homes of America. Their candle story begins in 1905 with Mabel Baker, a former Massachusetts school teacher, who began making hand dipped bayberry taper candles in her tiny Cape Cod kitchen. The candles became so popular with family and friends that she started selling them in her husband’s local hardware store. By 1909, many stores in the Cape Cod area were selling Mrs. Baker’s candles and Colonial Candle was officially in business.
Recognized as the first candle company started by a woman, Colonial Candle is still proudly made in the USA. Today, all their candles are produced in North Carolina with the same pride and craftsmanship established over a century ago. From the mixing their fragrance with color and wax to the perfect wick, every candle is made to exact specifications. Their signature oval jars truly set Colonial Candles apart providing an understated sophistication and a cleaner, more even burn.
Headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina, their Flagship Store is located in the Shops at the Charleston Place Hotel. You can also find these candles in local retailers all over the country.
