I recently saw Leanne over at Nails and Teapots review candles from 'Our Own Candle Company'. Once I saw the packaging and the large range of scents they offered, I headed straight out and picked myself up a few to try.
Our Own Candle Company import candles from the U.S.A. They offer quality candles that have: no wasted wax, a great scent, clean burning and long lasting candles all at affordable prices.
As a huge lover of Yankee Candles I was sceptical on how well these candles would burn, last for and how intensive the scent would be. I picked up two candle jars: a large jar in Buttercream (£12) and a small jar in French Vanilla (£5).
Firstly the candles are presented in beautiful vintage glass jars, with screw top lids and vintage labels. The scents are incredible. They burn a strong and intense smell which fill the whole house. They also have a long burning time, which is a massive plus point for me. Also after you have burnt out candle you can reuse the glass jar for storing items.
Our Own Candle Company also offer Meltems which work in a similar way as the Yankee Tarts.
These candles are the same quality as Yankee but retail for a fraction of the price. If you are a candle lover like myself, I highly recommend you check out Our Own Candle Company.
