Intro To My Candle Review
I love spicy apple scented candles…the delicate combination of sweet apple and warm spices is a welcome treat in my home, especially during the Fall. I was jumping out of my seat with the latest Colonial Candle 50% off sale and went straight in for several types of scents. One of them I had to have was Apple Toddy – warm, apple-ly, and on sale? Yep! I opted to try this scent in their large, oval jar.
First Impressions of My Candle
I love the oval jars from Colonial Candle. I didn’t at first – I found them hard to get a good burn until I got familiar with the design and the wicks. The double wicks on these candles are really nice. The glass lids are really classy to me. This particular candle wax was a deep orange and had the most inviting picture of a mug of apple cider on the label. The candle was getting me in the mood for cuddling up by the fire…blanket in tow!
My first whiff of this candle let me know I was in for a treat. I smelled sweet, delicious apples and a syrupy, boozy type of scent. Here’ what Colonial Candle says about this scent:
The warmth of an apple toddy is hard to beat on a cold winter day. This mini candle captures the essence of this classic drink with a unique blend of fruits and spices. The rich warmth of the aroma of an apple toddy will fill your home with a festive feel. This candle features a sweet medley of winter fruits and citrus warmed by the intoxicating spices of clove and cinnamon.
Definitely the makings of a great spicy apple candle. I was excited to get down to the burn on this one.
There are a couple of things I really love about these large, oval jars. For one, they tend to work well in large, open spaces. I lit this candle in my open kitchen and it didn’t take long for this lovely to start scenting up the place. I smelled the slightly sweet scent of apples with just the right amount of sweet cinnamon. Clove has a distinct smell to me and I really didn’t pick that up here. I did get a boozy kind of vibe with this scent…it was somewhat sweet, thick, and fruity – kind of like warmed brandy. The longer the candle burned, the more I noticed that warmed brandy smell. I found the whole scent simply delicious and I couldn’t get enough.
I’d rate the scent strength fairly strong and it traveled all throughout the area and on down the hallways.
How Did My Candle Perform?
Ok…the other thing I love about these large Colonial Candle jars are that they burn down very quickly. I know that’s not really a good thing for most, but when you have a jillion candles to burn through, you learn to appreciate the fast burners. These large oval jars fall into that category. I got a full wax melt pool in a short period of time. My flames were kind of wild in the beginning and I did see some black soot on the jar. There was no wasted wax on the sides of the jar – I got it to burn down evenly, no problems.
I will say the wicks on these large jars are thick and one thing I’ve learned about them it to trim them fairly short on the first burn. If you don’t, the flames are pretty big and that’s when you can see a lot of black sooting.
Closing To My Candle Review
This was another winner from Colonial Candle – great scent, great scent throw, and a nice, even burn. It burns super fast (plus for me) and the wicks are a bit high maintenance on first burn. I don’t see this size jar on the website right now, but they do have the 8oz size. If you’re looking for a great, spicy apple candle, I don’t think you could go wrong with this one. Give it a try & tell us what you think!
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.
