Why Sparkle Candle Co.
I love browsing Etsy to find new-to-me candle and wax melt shops. I ran across Sparkle Candle Co. and saw they were having a special on wax melts – 6 clamshells for $23, which works out to less than $4 each. Given the rising costs of wax melts these days, I thought that this was as good a chance as any to dive in and try this company.
- Almond Rum Cake clamshell
- Bamboo & Coconut clamshell
- Eucalyptus Mint clamshell
- Fresh Linen clamshell
- Lemon Pound Cake clamshell
- Vanilla Tobacco clamshell
- Fresh Cut Roses 8oz candle
- Hansel & Gretel’s House tealight
The ordering process on Etsy was fairly easy. For the 6 wax melt special, I added that item to the cart then indicated which scents I wanted in the Notes To Seller on checkout. The available scents were outlined in the listing (including scent descriptions), so it made that part easy. I did make a note of what I wanted in a Word document, then I copy/pasted that information in the Notes section at checkout. The Fresh Cut Roses candle was a separate listing and easy to add to cart. Etsy has a number of ways to pay, so no problems there, either.
The turn-around-time was super fast here. I ordered on Tuesday and the order shipped out on Thursday. It arrived to me on Monday via USPS: 7 days.
Everything was well packaged upon arrival. The clamshell wax melts were packaged 3 packs together and wrapped with a holiday kraft type paper. The candle was nestled inside with two layers of bubble wrap around it. The freebie was in a ziplock bag and included the business card with a handwritten note on the back. The note let me know what the freebie was, as there was no label on the tealight.
Impression of Individual Products
I was pleased with just about everything in my order. My only disappointment was Lemon Pound Cake – it was not as strong as I was expecting. The remainder were either moderately strong or strong. Almond Rum Cake & Fresh Linen were the strongest. Hansel & Gretel’s House was strong, too. Instead of burning the sample tealight, I removed the wax from the tealight cup and melted it in my warmer. Yum!
|Product Type||Scent Name||Scent Description||Comments||Repurchase?|
|Clamshell Wax Melt||Almond Rum Cake||A scrumptious bakery scent with almond extract, chopped almonds, and dark rum: middle notes of sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla and cream; well-rounded with butter and cake batter. Yummy!||So delicious! Heavy on the almond (cherry-like) notes, but the yellow cake notes are definitely present. Strong.||Yes|
|Clamshell Wax Melt||Bamboo & Coconut||This soothing blend has a luxurious softness that’s reminiscent of a spa, or a tranquil bamboo forest. With the lushness of green coconut, fresh leaves, and tender fruit notes.||Love this scent in general and this was a good wax melt. Moderate throw.||Yes|
|Clamshell Wax Melt||Fresh Linen||Nostalgic aroma of fresh linens dried on a fresh breezy day||Crisp and clean. Slightly perfumey. Stronger scent.||Yes|
|Clamshell Wax Melt||Eucalyptus Mint||Invigorating blend with peppermint, patchouli, cedar wood and eucalyptus.||Crisp & invigorating! This was more mint with just enough of the eucalyptus & woodsy notes. Moderately strong and long-lasting.||Yes|
|Clamshell Wax Melt||Vanilla Tobacco||A rich and sultry fragrance with notes of amber, tobacco, and a hint of vanilla. A unique and captivating fragrance!||This one had caramel-ly notes and some smokiness to it. Very warm. Loved. Moderately strong.||Yes|
|Clamshell Wax Melt||Lemon Pound Cake||Buttery pound cake, sweet lemon glaze, and a hint of vanilla. Sweet, creamy and full of lemony goodness!||Buttery lemon cake, rich and moist. Melt in your mouth good! Strong cold sniff but fairly tame once melting. This one disappointed.||No|
|Candle (8oz)||Fresh Cut Roses||A true fresh cut rose scent. Smells just like a bouquet of fresh cut roses.||Fantastic rose scent with plenty of green, leafy notes. Clean, even burn. Moderately strong.||Yes|
|Tealight||Hansel & Gretel’s House||Hansel and Gretel’s house covered with vanilla frosting, cinnamon sticks, toasted graham crackers and juicy raisins!||Yum! This one smelled like Bear Claws to me. Strong and delicious.||Yes|
I was impressed with my order from Sparkle Candle Co. Most of the clamshell wax melts required 2 cubes to give me a good enough throw with a 24W melter. With my tealight melter, I was able to use 1 cube and got pretty good results. Overall, this was a really good order from Sparkle Candle Co., and I can definitely see myself coming back for more. The fast shipping, reasonable prices, and great quality of the products was a win-win for me.
