Southern Lights Candles Review
Southern Lights Candles is a candle shop based out of Tennessee. Luckily, in addition to the store front, you can also buy SLC products online! You can find melts, candles, oils, and adorable warmers for sale on the site.
SLC has been in business for over 10 years, and is run by an awesome lady named Lisa. She is so nice and has great customer service–she answers emails so quickly! I was glad to review a few Southern Lights Soy Melts for her. 🙂
Since all of SLC’s wax products are soy, I was a little concerned that the throw would be very light, as I’m more used to paraffin and parasoy melts. This was not the case at all!! The soy melts come in two different sizes–there are the mini melts, and the regular soy melts.
There’s a side by side comparison with mini on the left, regular on the right. I just LOVE the shape of these melts. They are basically the exact size and shape of mini and regular Reese’s peanut butter cups. They peeled very easily from the paper cups, with no residue left on the paper at all. I also like the packaging the individual tarts come in. The labels are clean, simple, and tell you everything you need to know. Now for the good part. On to the scents!
Caramel Apple–Very delicious blend of fresh apples and buttery caramel. This was a lot more apple than caramel for me, but I didn’t mind. The apple was a real, juicy one. Notes of sweet vanilla caramel are in the background. A medium throw.
Thanksgiving–A great fall scent! Main note is spicy cinnamon, but there is a buttery pumpkin there as well. This fragrance was very long lasting, it lingered even after I had dumped the tart. I imagine this tart being knockout strong with a little cure time!
Lemondrop Cookie–Wow, this is such a yummy fragrance! A bakery lemon, with a sugar cookie note. It’s near equal on the lemondrop and cookie parts, with the lemon being a little more prominent. Definitely the favorite out of the scents I tested. STRONG throw!
Spiced Cider–Just what its’ name implies. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices on a base of apples and maybe the slightest hint of plums, or berries. A very warm Autumn scent. One mini melt in my warmer lasted for hours.
Hummingbird Cake–A unique SLC blend! Hummingbird cake is a very popular dessert in the South. The SLC tart smelled like a sweet, citrus cake. The top note was a bakery orange, with notes of creamy cake and coconut behind it. It made me hungry!
I could definitely see myself going back for a big bag of that Lemondrop Cookie! It is probably one of the best lemon blends I’ve ever tried. Couple that with Lisa’s great customer service, and SLC is a winner! Right now, the soy melts are on sale for $1. Give Southern Lights Candles a visit and check them out for yourself!
