I came across West Coast Candle Company some time ago on Instagram and I fell in love with how gorgeous their crystal candles are.  I am a big crystal collector and this company puts crystals right into the candle wax.  I also love the look of the beautiful ceramic cups that the candles come in.  I was intrigued.  I went on the website with the intention of purchasing one of the crystal candles, but I saw that they offered a sample kit as well.  It includes 5 smaller candles in gold tins.  I thought what a great way to try out a variety of different scents.  I was sold.

The scents I received were:

  • sweet grapefruit
  • spiced vanilla
  • soft linen
  • sweater weather
  • rosemary lavender

I love these candles!  They are super cute and smell amazing!  They are so fragrant.  They smell fresh and clean.  They have clean burning, eco-friendly wooden wicks.  They’re handmade by a local company (support local!).  My hubby loves the sound they make when they’re burning – he calls it a “soothing hiss”.  I do too, but I would call it more of a soft crackle lol.  They last long too!  We’ve been burning them a lot and they’re still around.

I did have some confusion with the online ordering.  I guess I somehow selected pick-up, but I didn’t notice because the email I received confirming my order also said at the top “we’re getting your order ready to ship”.  I eventually got an email from them telling me my order was ready for pick-up.  I emailed them and they responded quite quickly and we got it all worked out.  Local delivery did have an extra charge of $10 that I paid.  I received the candles later than the estimated time I was originally told, but that being said, I wasn’t in any rush for candles anyhow.  I would just recommend giving yourself plenty of time if you’re purchasing to have them for a gift or event.  I found my interaction with this company pretty great – friendly and pleasant.

Most importantly, these candles are great quality.  I cannot wait to try the crystal ones out next.
