Smells Like Summer With Old Factory's Vacation Theme Candle Set + Giveaway 12/1 US

I like scented candles. They make our home smell nice and makes it look cozy. I have a stock of scented candles in my home so when Old Factory sent me my choice of their candle gift set, I was super excited to try it.

What I like about the candles by Old Factory is that each set comes in 3 different scents which are related and complement each other. Each candle is hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks and premium fragrance oils. For my set, I picked the Vacation theme which includes the Sea Breeze, Hawaiian Lei and Awapuhi.

The other sets available are:
Fall Harvest - Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry, and Autumn Leaves
Happy Holidays - Christmas Tree, Candy Cane, Gingerbread
Winter Wonderland - Hot Cocoa, Roasted Chestnut, First Snow
Romance - Rose Petals, Champagne, Dark Chocolate 
Fresh & Clean - Lemongrass, Olive Blossom, Fresh Linen
Spa Day - Cucumber, Lemongrass, Green Tea
Coffee Shop - Coffee Bean, Hazelnut, Chai Tea
Man Cave - Straight Razor, Leather, Mahogany
High As A Kite - Cannabis, Incense, Bag OÕ Cookies
Newborn Baby - Baby Powder, First Blanket, Baby Shampoo
50 Shades - Leather, Jasmine Bubbles, Vanilla Sex  
I received the candles gift wrapped and ready to be gifted. Of course this was for me so my 3 year old daughter had the pleasure of opening up the gift. :)
Each jar has the same simple yet elegant design and the scents can be found by looking at the bottom side of the jar. I like how the jars looked because they have a neutral color so I can put them in any room.

My 3 year old daughter, who loves smelling candles (when they're not lit of course), smelled each candle and said they all smell good.

This is my own description of how I perceived each candle in my Vacation-themed set.

The Sea Breeze scent has a fresh and clean scent which reminds me of the ocean.
The Hawaiian Lei scent has a sweet scent with a hint of pineapple.
The Awapuhi scent has a mixture of the Sea Breeze and Hawaiian Lei scent.

Each 2 ounce jar can burn clean and even for 20 hours. I lighted the Sea Breeze candle and my 6 year old daughter said it smells like a nice breeze. I didn't even tell her the what the scent of the candle is but that's how she described it. As soon as I light it up, I immediately smelled the scent of the candle but took about 5 minutes for the scent to diffuse through our whole room. It neither produced a black smoke nor did it create a soot on our walls and ceiling.

I loved my Vacation-theme set and I'd love to try their other candle sets too. :)
