As soon as the rain starts to fall and the leaves start to change color, I get all of my cozy candles out of the closet. I’m a sucker for anything vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin, or pine, and always have a candle burning throughout Fall and Winter. And, like many people, if I’m having a crummy day, I find a bit of peace going to a store and smelling all of the candles, finding the perfect one to add to my collection. The pandemic has squashed the idea of getting to roam around a store and put anything close to my nose, so I did the next best thing: I called up a friend on Zoom and we went “virtual candle shopping” at Wax Cabin Candle Co. And thank goodness, because I found some of my new favorite candles.
Wax Cabin Candle Co. makes some delicious and strong smelling candles, and they do it all out of New Jersey. The candles are super cute, and even the smaller 4oz. sizes last for a long time. And while I’m not a big fan of gendering candles, their “mandle” line puts their candles in some beautiful glasses that can be repurposed for whiskey or other cocktails once you’re done. If you win the lotto and want to spend all of your money in one place, you can even purchase a giant, 42 lb, 712 oz candle. (I seriously want to see that in person!)
Wax Cabin Candle Co. was nice enough to fund my little “virtual candle shopping spree” and let me pick out a couple candles to try. My faves include Cake & Champagne, a slightly fruity version of a vanilla cake candle (the champagne and a touch of lemon really brightens up the scent) and Pumpkin Horchata, the perfect mix of pumpkin, cinnamon, and a bit of sweetness. These candles will be my go-tos to get me into a fall mood. They’ve also got some delicious sounding cocktail-inspired candles, as well as some fun scents like “Brunch” and “Cozy Cabin”.
