ScentSmith Studios Candle Review by Mountain Man George Reviews

ScentSmith Studios Candle Review by Mountain Man George Reviews
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Upon opening the box, the first thing that strikes you, is the scent of the candle. This in conjunction with the professional manner in which the product is package makes for a very favorable first impression.
What your seeing me smell, is the product I am reviewing. Mandarin Cranberry. I am a guy and can't stand all that fufu stuff, any overpoweringly sweet smelling, so food smells are the best.
The Mandarin Cranberry is straight paraffin wax that measures approx 4" 1/2 H and slight 2" width. The value of the candle is $4.75 which you can purchase from their etsy store:
even better their direct web site:
The burn time various candle to candle but from our personal use of the candle it lasted us almost a week. The smell stayed from day one until the last burn. What is winning this store our best remarks and highest recommendation is the fact of NO SOOT. As RVers, this is the most important feature of any candle. Have you ever washed soot off? It takes a lot of arm strength and time invested.
RV friendly product by far.
If any negatives were to be mentioned, it would be, when your through with the burn, there is a lot of wax left over. BUT this in and of itself, is not a bad thing, since the wax retains the great scent. We found that placing the wax in obscured place in a metal tin keeps the RV smelling as if it were on the first burn.
We place this tin on the stove (trick: when I heat water for our coffee, after it heats, I place the tin on the hot burner and WOW... Neighbors think we cook all the time. We add cloves and orange peels to add a wider smell and works GREAT)
Customer Service: Amy Smith is one of the kindest ladies we've ever had the honor of speaking to. She's believes in her products and it comes across loud and clear. She's open to helping everyone out. Fast and friendly service and truly follows-up to ensure a happy customer. Her stats on her etsy store are one to envy for such a newer store front.
  Opened on Nov 5, 2012 with 76 sales under her belt - TOP NOTCH. From what we understand her direct web sites does double of more in sales. So Amy is a busy women. Amy doesn't just do candles but but also, decorative items, bath and body products and other gift too.
So to close out our successful experience, we are offering a GIVEAWAY on one of her products...
We are doing a GIVEAWAY on the votive that was sent to us: Mango Palm Wax Votive
Fragrance is not a super strong one (overpowering) and is very pleasant to the nose. Made from palm wax, which is what causes the feathered, glittery look to the candle
