Drugstore Candle Comparison!

Hey guys!  I have picked up a few candles over the past couple of weeks and now that I have had a chance to try them all, I wanted to tell you what I think of them.  I found 2 of them at Walmart and I got the other one at Target.

Pictured left to right:

To be straight and to the point, my favorite of the 3 is actually the Signature Soy candle from Target in the Sun Kissed flavor.  As you probably already know, soy candles are not always the most fragrant candles.  I've had some in the past that I couldn't smell whatsoever.  This one is very flavorful, but still has that really clean burn that I love from soy candles.  It's just a light/clean/tropical scent that is just lovely.  Before I bought this one I was really enjoying the Burt's Bees candle in Tropical Mango.  I still love that one, but the scent of the Sun Kissed candle is just a little better to me.  I don't always love mango scents, they can smell kind of like rotten fruit?  Do you know what I mean?  lol.  Mango is definitely not a candle everyone is going to love, but done right I like it.  I really enjoy the Burt's Bees scent, but hands down I like the Target candle better.  The Target one has a burn time of 50 hours which is crazy, BBW candles only have a burn time of 25-40 hours.  Sorry to say my Burt's Bees one is already gone, but I did enjoy it while it lasted.  My least favorite of the bunch is the Better Homes and Garden one.  The scent of this candle is delicious, it's just super soft and barely noticeable.  All of these candles are great to burn together, as their scents marry quite nicely.  You walk in your house and it's like your in a tropical paradise without it being too coconut-y or anything.  All of them are light/crisp/tropical in their own way.  The Better Homes and Garden candle is the cheapest in terms of price per ounce, and the Burt's Bees one is the most expensive price per ounce.  Best bang for your buck is the Target candle in my opinion, mine was on sale for $8 and with the 50 hour burn time you really can't beat it.  They have several scents in this collection, so I'm sure there would be something for everyone.  Check them out if you haven't!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
