AM Candle Company Review & Giveaway

I love how certain scents can trigger wonderful memories. Sometimes I’ll catch a scent and will sit back for a while and reminisce on some wonderful moments in time. I often tell my husband that he has it easy when it comes to gift buying for me. He knows that a candle or tart really is the way to my heart. While I do like to change up what I burn from day to day, I mainly gravitate towards food scents. Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, I just think there is something very welcoming about walking into a house and smelling fresh baked bread, cookies, or cupcakes. Since I burn through quite a few candles a year, I am always on the lookout for new candle companies to try. I was really intrigued when I heard about AM Candle Company and knew these candles were a must try!

AM Candle Company offers a wide selection of hand poured candles, made with the highest quality ingredients that will fill your home with delicious aromas for hours on end. The wide selection of scents to chose from is impressive. From floral, to food, to even seasonal, they really do have a scent for everyone! How mouth watering does Candy Apple or Mango Milkshake sound? Or even burning a scent to celebrate the arrival of fall with Falling Leaves or Cinnamon Sticks? There are so many scents to chose from, the only problem is finding the time to burn them all!

AM Candle Company was generous enough to let me chose a candle for review. Like I mentioned, I love baked goods, so I was eager to try the Cinnamon Rolls Scented Candle.


I knew the candle was high quality as soon as I popped the lid off. Before I even lit the candle, I was catching the strong scent of delicious cinnamon rolls rolling right off the wax! I have high ceiling and an open floor plan, so finding a candle that will fill my home with fragrance has been tough. I have tried many over the years, and after trying the AM Candles, I am pleased to learn that they are one of the few that have done a fabulous job at that. The cinnamon roll scent was exactly as described, filling my home with the warmth of fresh baked rolls. Mmmm, Mmmm!

I also received 2 little samplers of the tea lights.


The Candy Corn scent smelled Ah-Mazing! And I’ve never tried a Green Tea scented candle before, but I quite enjoyed this one. I had it burning while in the bath, and it definitely added an element of relaxation!
With the holiday season approaching, I’ll surely be hinting where to go for my gifts this year! The candles are hand poured, made with a soy blend wax, and the wicks are lead free. I think the price point is one of the better offers I have seen also. The large jars burn for 95 hours and currently on sale for $11! That’s a steal in my book!

Araceli Martinez, the owner of AM Candle Company, is also in the process of incorporating her lovely, handmade hair bows to the line. She also sent 2 hair bows for Allison to try out.




If you are the mother to a little girl, you know hair bows are all the rage! From my experience, they are the “IT” accessory! Even more so in my case since Allison is in gymnastics. We have spent a lot of money on hair bows over the years! I am very thrilled at the quality of the bows we tried. Allison has very fine hair, and the clips used were nice and tight, not slipping off her head like many we have tried in the past. She made it through a full 45 minute gymnastics class and the bow was still perfectly in tact. That deserves a medal right there!
 
Overall, I am very pleased with all of the products I have tried from AM Candle Company, and will certainly be a repeat customer! Thank you AM Candle Company!

    1. Yes, you definitely need to be watchful of your candles, especially when you have cats! My cousin left hers unattended and thanks to the cat, her whole house burnt down. Never leave your candles burning unattended!
