Pacifica Candles - Essential Scents for Winter

Hey Ladies,

I hope you're all well! As more than a few of you know by now, I am obsessed with candles. I cannot get enough of them nor can I ever have too many! Recently Pacifica Candles caught my eye, and I just had to give them a try... you know, for the blog. Not to feed my candle addiction or anything! You bought that right? Good. Coming into the colder months, there is no greater Winter essential for me than a good candle. It just wouldn't be Winter without them. Forget the scarves, hats and gloves, candles are the ultimate accessory for me this Winter!

So, a little about Pacifica, the soy candles are clean and natural vegetable soy and release the scent from the candles generously, they also use essential and natural oils to create the candles. These are long burning, lead free cotton wicks, and are phthalate free. Impressed so far? Well, there's more! Let's have a look shall we?

Mexican Cocoa is first up, and this is just divine. A true rich and dark scent of Mexican Cocoa, mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and notes of bitter almond this candle is just incredible. The scent throw with this 5.05oz candle is nothing short of amazing, within minutes the entire room is scented, but its not over powering and the scent has a lovely lingering factor which I look for in all my candles.

Tibetan Mountain Temple has to be the standout fragrance for me. It's just, indescribably beautiful. Vetiver and Indonesian Patchouli with ginger just makes this smell like something that should only be burned when you are totally relaxed. It's just stunning! This little guy has a burning time of 30 hours! The scent throw even for the smaller candles are great. They also come in packs of three so you can try them out before you commit to a bigger size!

Mediterranean Fig is not something I would normally go for but I'm glad I did. The first thing that hits me with this, apart from the smell of fig, is sandalwood, which I just cant get enough of! Moss, clove, palm and cyclamen are also in there to give you a beautiful earthy but fresh scent.

I know what some of you are thinking with Tuscan Blood Orange, and no, you really don't have to be a fan of oranges to appreciate this little beauty. Both juicy and spicy this candle holds the scent of strawberry, raspberry, fresh mandarin and Italian sweet orange. To me the orange in this is very subtle, not overpowering, in fact I think the spiciness really overtakes with this one, which of course I adore!

So my final thoughts on these? I love them and I will absolutely purchase more. The candles burn beautifully, the scent range is expansive so there is bound to be something for everyone, the scent throw of the candles are just great and I love the packaging! You really need to try these for yourself. Id rather spend a little extra and have a candle that burns good than pay a little less for a brand that keeps disappointing. There really is no comparison! I can see why they are known as the best candles in the world!

That's it for now ladies!
I hope you enjoyed!
