C&T Candle Co. Review


Hey there!

I don’t know about you, but any time I am out at my favourite stores, I always check out what is new and exciting. Recently, I noticed a new addition on Crackle and Teal‘s shelves – C&T Candle Co. candles. They first caught my eye with their cute amber coloured jars and classic labelling, and then when I took a sniff – I was hooked!

C&T Candle Co. candles are made from 100% soy wax, which means they burn clean, and are long lasting. They also come in a huge range of scents, from earthy, to sweet, to masculine. As a bonus, these candles are locally made! Thanks to Crackle and Teal I had the opportunity to do a real-life test on these beautiful candles in the last few months. I chose the Vanilla Coffee Bean and Rosemary Mint scents to take home with me.


The Vanilla Coffee Bean candle is divine. The coffee bean scent works to get rid of odors, much like you use coffee beans to cleanse your nose when testing perfume. The vanilla notes mimic fresh baking and make the room feel very welcoming and home-y.  I would suggest using this candle in the kitchen – I found it helped clear the air in mine one night after I cooked fish tacos!


The Rosemary Mint scent is another favourite of mine – it smells fresh and spring-y, but isn’t overpowering. This scent is one that has been made with essential oils, which is always a nice touch when you’re trying to keep things in your home as natural as possible. I like to burn this candle in my office when I am working, or in the living room when relaxing after a long day. It really is the perfect spa-like scent to bring a little peace into your home.

Overall? I love these candles and will certainly be picking up some more soon! They burn clean and evenly, smell amazing, and come in sweet little jars that I plan to re-use to store my trinkets.


If you’re interested in picking up some C&T Candle Co. candles of your own, they can be found at Crackle and Teal in Miramichi, or at Salon Boheme in Dieppe. Scents currently available include: Pineapple Cilantro, Vanilla Raspberry Cheesecake, Sweet Tobacco, Chai Latte, Apple Spice, Pipe Tobacco & Cedarwood, Cranberry Marmalade, Vanilla Coffee Bean, and Lavender. A little birdie also tells me that a whole new line of summer scents is on the way!

Are you going to try one of these new C&T Candle Co. candles? What scent is on your wishlist? I think I would like to try Vanilla Raspberry Cheesecake (yum!) and Pipe Tobacco & Cedarwood next! Let me know your opinion in the comments, or on my Facebook page. Thanks so much for stopping in!
