Gold Canyon Candles Review

Having a lovely scented home makes doing every day things more pleasant, such as walking around the house cleaning, sitting and watching TV, on the computer, or simply being with the family. The easiest way that I can think to achieving a great smelling home is by using scented candles. Burning your favorite scents can make you feel good inside by reminding you of certain memories. Like right now for instance, I am really into burning candles that remind me of Spring and the warm weather. I have been recently introduced to a company, Gold Canyon Candles, that offers so many different candle options. Their collection is huge you'll probably want to smell each one when you check out the website. I was recently given the chance to do a review and immediately impressed when I received my package and saw all the visually appealing candles that had amazing scents even when unlit.



Gold Canyon offers a huge variety of candles. There are candles for holidays, occasions, or whatever scent you enjoy in your day to day life. These aromatic candles are also stylish, as they are available in a variety of shapes and sizes including scented jar candles, candle pillars, tea-light candles, and votives. Each candle is dipped with the highest quality in waxes and infused with the perfect combination of fragrances to create some of the most appealing scented candles available. 


During my review I had the privilege to be able to enjoy a variety of scents, jar styles and a warmer. I received the Honey Oat Tea Infusion Aromatherapy Scented Candle for Balance, Apple Heritage Scented Candle, Ecru Footed Square Scent Pod Warmer, and two different Wick-less Candle Scent Pods in Luscious Vanilla Lime and Dazzle-berry.




 
I am such a huge fan of the Ecru Footed Square Scent Pod Warmer which is priced at $29.98. It is a very elegant and decorative addition to my bedroom. I really love the warmer's design, resting on four clear faceted legs, with a classic cream color. I am sure this would have looked great in any room but I decided to put it in my bedroom because the scent of the candle spreads to the bathroom as well. The pods are designed to rest securely in the warmer, they fit perfectly into a round and sunken area on its top. There is a convenient on and off switch with automatic programming options of 4, 8 or 12 hours. Forgot to turn the warmer off? Don't sweat, it's covered! This is really nice feature and very easily set.

I was sent the two differently scented pods to sample and review. They were the Luscious Vanilla Lime and the Dazzleberry. Each pod is wickless and has a weight of 2.4oz. The "pod" is a round container that holds wax that is soft and scented. You simply remove the lid, place the entire pod in the warmer, and turn the warmer on, it is all very simple and convenient. At any time you can remove the pod from the warmer and put the lid back on. This makes for very convenient storage, as you can put it anywhere. I love how the scent flows throughout my bathroom and my bedroom, making each room smell amazing. Since my computer is in my room I do spend a lot of time in there, so to to have a lovely smelling work area is perfect. The options of where you can put the candles are not limited and are, of course, entirely up to you. One impressed aspect of the pods are their price, replacements only cost $5.98, very fair considering they smell great and last for a really long time.


Do you enjoy apple scents? If so, you should try the Apple Heritage Scented Candle, it is great. This is a lovely red-colored candle, held in a very attractive jar. The jar's glass is very thick, you dont have to worry about burns or heat-related fractures . There is also an air-tight lid that fits very snuggly onto the jar. This keeps the freshness and aroma preserved when the candle is not in  use. This is a two-wick candle, which really helps the wax melt evenly. The scent flows through whatever room it is in and reminds me of a walk through an orchard of fresh-picked apples.The scent is just right not too weak or overpowering. I was sent the 16oz but there are also different sizes available. Each size is priced differently, but given on how even they burn, the length of their burn time, and the scent that is offered, each candle is an undeniable bargain.

5 oz. Apple      $7.98
8 oz. Apple      $11.98
16 oz. Apple      $15.98
26 oz. Apple      $18.98


 
The last item I reviewed was the Honey Oat Tea Infusion Aromatherapy Scented Candle for Balance. I was sent the 16oz priced at $17.98, which I feel is a great price for a great candle. I especially love the scent that comes from this candle. It is very soothing and provides a sense of balance and relaxation. There is also a very nicely designed image on the jar. The lid of the jar was obviously designed with great care and style in mind as well.  I love when you can find a candle that burns evenly allowing you to be able to reuse the jar later on if you would like for storage or whatever else you desire. This is one of those candles.

  2. Great review! I am IN. LOVE with Gold Canyon candles! So much so, that I started selling them...I was all about Yankee Candles, but being in Canada and ordering them from the states, I soon found out that there are some pretty steep hidden shipping charges (duty, tax, blablabla) that go ontop of your order, even after you have submitted and paid for it. Fedex calls when they are holding my orders for ransom - I have now paid over 100.00 over and ontop of what I paid directly to Yankee Candles :( Also, when I first got into the Yankees, I was really liking them, but then I got my Gold Canyons, and the was NO COMPARISON! Gold Canyons are way better, and I am now royally kicking myself in the butt for spending so much money on Yankee - I still have to pay another 50.00 for a huge order that is waiting in Vancouver :( I dont even burn the Yankees anymore - I find them to be too chemical-smelling or perfumey or something - not quite right as compared to the same scents from Gold Canyon which are really true to life and scrumptious. Anyways, Just thought Id comment :)
