Old Factory Candles Review

Disclosure: I received this product for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


As some of you know, I absolutely love candles. I have them all over my house and use them not just for burning, but decorating too. With my love for candles, it isn’t too surprising that they are a favorite gift for us to give to friends and family. The problem, however, is finding cute candle gift sets that are not only high quality, but inexpensive, especially since we are on a budget this year. Luckily, we found the perfect candles for the holiday season – Old Factory Candles.

Old Factory Candles: What Is It

Do you love to give candles as gifts? If so, we think you will love Old Factory Candles. These all natural soy candles not only burn clean, but are hand poured right here in the United States. Not only are all of their candles natural, they are also made using premium fragrance oils that keep them scented for the life of the candle, which is about 20 hours. Each of their gift sets contain three 2 oz candles that are all centered around a theme. For example, the set we reviewed is the Coffee Shop theme, with Hazelnut, Espresso, and Chai Tea scents. With their small size and great price, they are the perfect gift for coworkers and adult family.

Old FactoryCandles: Overall

So far, I have to say I love these cute little candles. While each candle is only 2 oz, I found that they actually keep their scent for quite some time. Best of all, they truly burn clean, making them perfect for burning in a closed in area, like my office. I personally like to burn the coffee scented one on my desk since they make our whole basement smell amazing. Really, I would consider this the perfect gift for anyone who loves candles, and the coffee set especially for coffee lovers. Based on my own experience, I am happy to give Old Factory Candles an A rating.

    These candles do sound like the perfect gift. I love candles myself and the fact that these are soy candles is a big plus for me. Soy candles are one of my top motivators to buying the candle.

    I love candles. I too use them to decorate as well as burning them. The hazel nut and tea scents sound amazing.And, the jars can be re-used after burning the candle down.

    I am a huge candle lover. I like that these are sold in sets rather than singles.

    These Old Fashiones Candles are great, they would make a great Christmas gift. The Coffee Shop collection would make a great gift for the coffee lover. Thank you for sharing this review.

    These candles would be a perfect gift for someone. I love the smell of fresh brewed coffee so I also would love to have these candles. I also like that they come in a boxed set rather than single candles.

    This sounds like a great gift idea! I love the variety of sets, but I think I would break up the set for stocking stuffers 🙂

    My sisters and myself are always giving candles for gifts. Last year I received one called apple harvest and unfortunately forgot who the maker was. It was amazing! As soon as I removed the lid it was the only thing you could smell. I didn’t hear mention wether these candles needed this be lot for the smell.

    I love candle and wax tarts. You can say I have an obsession. I love the fact that these are made with pure natural soy and are clean burning. Healthier for my family and my pets.

    Made in the USA, made from soy, cotton wick (lead fee), reasonably priced (free shipping w/2 packs), wonderful scent combinations, and 15-20 hours burn time each. Sounds like the perfect gift for my candle loving daughter.
    If only they were mix-and-match.

    I love that they come in sets of threes at reasonable prices, they make wonderful gifts!

    I LOVE scented candles! These look awesome! I love clean burning candles. I read another comment that said they have a lead free wick. I am not sure if that is true, but I like that too!! The scents of these candles are super fun. I like all the options.

    I love candles. I have them all over the house. Not only for power outages. They give off a nice, soft light and create a mood of peace. At least in my mind.

    These are great because of all the different scents available, I think everyone can find something that they like with all the different choices available. I like the coffee shop set a lot.

    These candles are excellent. The coffee scents sound really good.

    I can’t believe these little candles burn for twenty hour. I love candles and I can’t wait to get some of these.

    I think these candles are adorable. The scents are pretty unique, too. The Man Cave scents, like leather & mahogany, make me want them, too.

    I am obsessed with candles. I always have them burning in my house. I really like the old fashioned look to these candles and that they are soy based. I would love to try these out and also they would really make a neat gift. Thanks for the review!
