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.
