Halo Candle Company Review

Halo Candle Company has been in business since 1996, but in 2003 it came under new management–Bill and Raquel Lewis.  The company is based out of Missouri, but has a few stores scattered around the country.  Halo offers candles, wax melts, incense and much more, all with the max amount of fragrance oil you can use in wax.  That’s why the products from Halo are called “Extreme Fragrance”!

I was so excited to be able to review some wax melts from this company.

Bill was nice enough to send me 9 fragrances to review:  Pumpkin Pie Spice, Fruit Slices, White Ginger, Black Raspberry Vanilla, Key Lime Pie, Fabuloso Type, Blueberry Cheesecake, Hazelnut Pumpkin, and Egyptian Musk.  Halo Candle Company boasts a fragrance list of hundreds, so this is just a little sampling of what they have to offer!

One of the things I love most about looking at the Halo fragrance list was that there were definitely some unique scents there, ones I had never seen at other companies.  Some of these include Azalea, Lizard’s Breath, and Royal Wedding.

My take on the melts and fragrances:

First of all, I really love the little wax chips I got!  They were a really cute shape, and you get to choose the amount you wish to put into your warmer.  You could even order a few fragrances and mix your own scents!

Wax melts in Fruit Slices.

In my opinion, the best thing about the fragrances from this company is that they are VERY authentic.  Sometimes certain scents are hard to capture in wax form, but the ones I tried all smelled like the real thing.  Here are my notes.

Key Lime Pie–My FAVORITE out of all the scents I tested.  Top note is a zesty, creamy lime, but there is a sweetness there too.  The lime freshened the house, but not in a cleaning product way…in a fresh citrus way if that makes sense 😉

Fruit Slices–A citrus mix that is very bright and summery.  You can pick out the separate notes of orange and grapefruit, and there’s also a hint of lemon.  Medium to strong throw.

Blueberry Cheesecake–Great, authentic blueberry scent with the creamy, tangy cheesecake notes in the background.

Fabuloso–Wow, this one is strong!  This smells just like the real thing…if you don’t know, Fabuloso is a cleaning product that you can use to mop floors, clean counters, etc.  That’s just what this reminds me of–coming home to a kitchen my mom had just mopped when I was a kid.

Black Raspberry Vanilla–Delicious fragrance.  A very nice black raspberry fruit fragrance, with a small hint of floral in the background.  This one was on the lighter side for me, but I really liked the scent.

Pumpkin Pie Spice–A classic fall fragrance blend.  Cozy and warm spices- there is cinnamon there, but to me it’s not the main note.  I also get nutmeg and pumpkin.

White Ginger–I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one since I usually don’t like floral scents–but it’s really enjoyable!  This is a delicate, spa-like fragrance.  Would be awesome in a bath and body product!

Egyptian Musk–This is a bestseller for Halo!  I thought this would be reminiscent of incense, but it’s not.  It is a musky floral scent–quite a strong throw, too.  It reminds me of perfume.

Hazelnut Pumpkin–My other fave!  This is a perfect balance of the nuttiness of hazelnuts and warm pumpkin spice.  There is cinnamon but it’s not overwhelming!  This was a strong fragrance and it lasted for hours!

All in all, I quite enjoyed the wax I got to try from Halo Candle Company.  As I said before, their fragrances are some of the most authentic I have tried.  Check out their huge fragrance list and I’m sure you will be able to find something you love too!

*Note–I was sent these tarts at no cost for reviewing purposes, but that in no way influenced my results.  My thoughts and opinions are completely honest and my own.
