Soy Candles By Phebes Review and GIVEAWAY!!!



Candles are probably one of my favorite things in the whole world. 

There is just nothing like the smell and atmosphere that they add to your home. 

I was so excited when I had the opportunity to do a review for Soy Candles By Phebes!!
Soy Candles by Phebes is a great company! They make candles and tarts from 100% Soy Wax. Each and every candle is hand crafted and made to order. 

They sell candles in only one size (8.5 ounces) and one color (natural). I think this allows them to concentrate on the scent of the candle. 

Soy Candles By Phebes also makes Soy Tarts that can be used in any Tart Warmer. These little things are so nifty! They come packaged in six individual cubes, which you can use all at once, or mix and match to create your own scents!

Another great thing about Soy Candles By Phebes is that they are an eco-friendly, vegan-owned and operated company. Their candles are biodegradable, hypoallergenic and almost completely soot-free!

And Oh, the scents! That is my favorite part! 
Soy Candles By Phebes has some amazing candle scents that I have never seen anywhere else! 

Let me give you the description of a few of their scents : 

Christmas By The Fire:
Think of this as a spiced frankincense.  Exotic Frankincense with nutmeg and cedar wood, sage and cinnamon with some very light florals for brightness.  Uncommon yes, but destined to be a classic.

Hawaiian Holiday: 
An amazingly strong scent; we start with pineapples and bananas, mix in notes of paprika, powder and cotton and then round it off with passion fruits, oranges and woodsy notes.  Very complex, highly recommended, not .... in any way.... an ordinary holiday scent!

Christmas Memories:
This candle will bring back fond memories of Christmases past.  We blended orange peels with cranberries, a tiny hint of cinnamon and some fresh cloves.  All of this on a bead of pinecones and evergreen boughs.  As strong as you would imagine, as pleasing as you would hope.

Indian Summer: 
The joy of those short few days before winter closes in.  The skies clear and the air is filled with a special quality that is at once hard to describe and a thrill to experience.  We interpret this moment with juniper berries and eucalyptus, pineapples and blueberries.  Spruce, fir, cedar and exuberance round out this have to have scent.

Log Cabin: 
A warm rustic blend of cedar and pine with hints of tobacco and powder.  We get more feedback on this scent than probably any other.  It's the scent people experience in a friend's house and must have in theirs.

Puppy Breath: 
A wonderfully complex amalgamation of creamy sweet florals, coconuts, nuts and silky vanilla.  All dog lovers know the special joy of a puppy kiss, that's what we have re-created here.  You'll feel like little Fido just gave you some loving.


What Mama Thinks: 
 I am so happy with these candles! I have never smelled such amazing scents! We had the chance to review two candles and two tarts. I loveeee the Twinkle! I know it's not Christmas, but I just had to burn it anyways! I also used the Autumn Magic Tart, and it is perfect! I am trying SOOO hard to save the holiday ones for closer to Christmas, but I am not sure if that is going to happen or not! I am so happy to support such a great company, and I know that once you try Soy Candles by Phebes, you will never buy another brand of candle again! (In case you are wondering, my favorite brands of candles before this were Yankee Candles, Woodwick Candles, and Candleberry Candles, and none of them even come CLOSE to Soy Candles By Phebes!)

Oh, and did I mention A-F-F-O-R-D-A-B-L-E???? Candles are $12.99, tarts are $4.50, and get this: FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $25.00!! How great are these folks?

Thanks so much you guys for letting me try your candles!
