Sweet Light Candle Co. Review
Sweet Light Candle Co. is a company based out of Florida that makes unbelievably realistic dessert candles and melts. The shop also offers dessert shaped soaps, tealight candles, and tart burners.
When I first visited the site, I saw these unique, looks too real to be wax, cannoli shaped tarts!
In addition to making me hungry, they made me want to give Sweet Light Candle Co. a try. The owner, Dina, sent me a selection of products to review.
I received a Cinnamon Bun candle, a Pumpkin Spice Muffin Candle, Gumdrop Mini Cupcake Melts, and Wild Strawberry Melts.
The first thing I noticed about these items was that the attention to detail in these products is second to none. These are beautiful wax pieces.
This is another one of those vendors whose products are so gorgeous, you don’t want to use them! But the cold sniff was pretty good on each item, and I knew I had to go ahead and melt all this lovely wax for review purposes ;)
Pumpkin Spice Muffin Candle–Looks just like a huge pumpkin muffins still in its’ wrapper. You can clearly see the ruffles of the cupcake liner and everything :)
This candle was lovely and had a good cold throw, but its’ throw when melting was quite light. I could smell it when I got within about 3 feet of it. I melted this on the plate all day, about 10 hours, and it still had some wax left to burn the next day.
Gumdrop Mini Cupcake Melts–These are so adorable, and the “frosting” on them is hand sculpted. They are a nice size, over an ounce each. It seemed one melt took a little longer than usual to fully liquefy in my melter. Sweet Light Candle Co. wax is a blend of paraffin and vegetable waxes, so I’m not sure why that was so. To me, this gumdrop melt smelled like sweet grape candy. The throw was not knockout strong, it was more light to medium. But the scent lasted for hours.
Cinnamon Bun Candle–There’s not many foods I love more than a warm from the oven cinnamon roll covered in dripping frosting. This candle definitely smelled and looked like the real thing. The cinnamon bun candle was quite a bit smaller than the muffin candle, so it melted for a shorter time. But I got a bit more throw out of this one than I did the larger candle. Not a room filling scent, but pleasant nonetheless.
Wild Strawberry Melts–These are teeny tiny enough that I put 6 into my melter.
These were my favorite item out of all that I tested. The throw was medium, not overwhelming but I could smell it from quite a distance. The fragrance is sweet, sugary fresh strawberry. I let these melt for about 6 hours before I threw out the wax. I think adding more strawberries to the dish would give a better, longer lasting throw!
Sweet Light Candle Co. is worth a try if you are someone who likes your candles to look as realistic as possible! I know some people like to purchase candles as decor, and these would be perfect for that. If you want something that smells as good as it looks, go for the melts they offer.
