Geek Nest Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Geek Nest for the review & giveaway free of charge.****
I purchase and use candles quite often, I love how they make the house smell verses how sprays and burning incense work because sprays and incense can leave mist and smoke in the air which can sometimes be over whelming and make it to where you feel like you can't breathe. Candles on the other hand don't leave that kind of a musk in the air instead they leave a light and airy aroma. I recently came across an Etsy shop called Geek Nest that creates book inspired candles. First let me start by saying how cute is their shop logo? I love candles, books and birds so their logo is perfect to me. I was recently sent two candles to review, one is to be kept for the review and the second was for the giveaway. Since both smell so good I couldn't decide which I wanted to keep so I let my kids pick their favorite of the two and the other will be used for a giveaway here on my blog. Everything came wrapped up in some purple tissue paper and the tins include the shop logo which I thought was a nice touch.

I received "Under the Sea" which is an Ariel inspired candle which smells like sea salt &driftwood and is a gorgeous teal colored wax, and "Upside Down" that is inspired by the Netflix series Stranger things and is a mint,licorice, and moss scented candle. Each candle is in a small round tin and has a burning time of eighteen hours, the wax is made from 75% soy and 25% paraffin wax. Both candles smell savory and charming, I have to admit at first the combination of mint,licorice, and moss threw me off I wasn't sure how it was going to smell and I was surprised to notice that is smelled a bit sweet yet woodsy at the exact same time. The Under the Sea kind of reminds me of how it smells after a good rain fall, it is calming and relaxing and is the reason my children decided this is the one we were going to keep. The containers are nice because even after burning for a few hours the tin didn't get hot to the touch so I was able to move it from one room into another. The wick itself catches quickly when lighting the candle and it holds a solid flame the entire time it is burning, the wax melts evenly and is quite aromatic without being overwhelming.

One lucky reader is going to win a 4oz "Upside Down" candle.
