Do you remember the first time you fell in love with scented candles? I bet it was such an experience! I fell in love with scented candles last year. I bought a Mango & Peaches scented candle and had it burning while I was cleaning the house. Now I cannot clean the house without having some kind of candle action going. Today I am reviewing Ocotillo Southwest scented candles; the Way Out West Collection. Keep reading to find out more!

How Ocotillo Southwest describes the products
I admire the way the products were packaged. The Mason jars are not too big, but the wax is very concentrated. You can feel the weight when you lift up the jars. Each candle has a delightful and inviting scent. The fragrance started to fill the rooms right away, although the wick itself did not burn too fast. After burning the candles for almost two hours, I dipped the wick in the wax pool to extinguish each candle, then brought the wick back up and centered it for future use. I did not see any dark smoke flying everywhere while the candles were burning. There was a little white smoke when I used the wick dipper to extinguish the candles, but it was not as bad as when I blew the candles.

I am not a candle connoisseur, but I have bought candles that smelled so strong they made me sneeze. Or in some cases, you have to get close to the jar to smell the fragrance. Overall, my experience with these candles was great. They exceeded my expectations. Did I mention they were nicely packaged?
