Box Opening: Patch NYC Candles from The Soap & Paper Factory

soap-and-paper-factory-inside-box-candlesI recently picked up a few candles from The Soap & Paper Factory. They carry Patch NYC candles and they had a sale. That was good enough for me! I was new to shopping here and new to Patch NYC candles. The website is super cute and the candles? Verrry interesting, indeed! I was drawn to the unique scents and the scent names themselves. It was hard to keep my selection to a minimum! I finally opted on three candles: Serpent, Bear, and Swallow.

Date ordered: October 31

Date received: November 7

 Receiving the package was awesome. Everything was packaged so neatly – it was like opening a present at Christmas! There was also a personalized handwritten thank-you note tucked inside. Very nice touch! The candles themselves are wonderful – the packaging has that old world vibe and the simplicity of the candle jars themselves adds to it.

a vintage inspired collection of artisan scented candles crafted by hand!

Serpent: {petitgrain, hay abs., geranium}enchanting and smoothly seductive vivid and crisp as a lush garden. Oooh this one is wonderful. It smells somewhat floral but the distinct hay aroma is blended in. A complex scent that I love the best of all three. Moderate cold throw.

Bear: {Sweet jasmine, violet, cedar, amber wood}plush and lush with a honeyed flourish,sumptuous as a long winter’s nap. This one starts as a floral but has a sweet/earthy cedar finish on cold sniff. Very complex. Moderate cold throw.

Swallow: {Orange blossom, rosewood, cyclamen, oakmoss}a high-flying floral medley imbued with a graceful earthiness, a curiously enduring fragrance. This one is a little sweeter, but with a natural sweetness. It also has an earthiness to it that is wonderful. The cold throw on this one is the strongest of the three.


I’m anxious to get around to burning these. I will have to keep The Scoop readers posted!

Have you tried Patch NYC candles? What are your thoughts?

Happy candle burning ~

  1. Andrea can’t wait to hear your review on these beauties. Would you consider these a luxury candle? They look like it to me. From the nice packaging and card to the pretty sophisticated packaging on the candle they have a high end look. I have never heard any names such as the scents you’ve gotten. Very intriguing.
