"AmCandl" Candle Review



So, this is a review and because I know when I look for product reviews I skip the introduction to go straight to the good stuff, I'm assuming a lot of people do the same.


So, I'm putting the introduction at the end. Enjoy ;)


AM Candle is an Egyptian brand that makes homemade candles that are hand poured in glass jars.


They come in 5 scents:

  • Lavender

  • Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla

  • Vanilla Cream

  • Frosted Winter Berry

  • Merry Christmas (seasonal)



Lavender Candle



Burning time: Almost 20 hours


Wax Burns: It burns unevenly at first but then evens out and causes no wax memory. It also burns relatively slow which is something you want your candle to do.


Scent Description: When unburned it had a clean smell, almost soapy in essence. However upon burning it turns into a light lavender scent that calmly spreads among the room and gives you that spa feeling without being overwelming.


Scent Strength: You can smell it once you walk in the room but in a good way, not at all overpowering. I actually would have preferred it to be stronger but my non-scent loving hubby likes it just the way it is, so I think it's a crowd pleaser ^_^


The Wick: It has 2 wicks which is great because you rarely find a small candle with more than one wick. The wick is made of robe that is sturdy and doesn't flail once burned so you won't have a buried wick in your wax (a pain for all candle lovers.)


Packaging: Glass is good quality and doesn't crack while burning.


Price: 70 EGP


Delivery: 45 EGP




Overall Experience


I enjoyed burning this one but I'm not sure if I'd buy this scent again. The lavender scent is a bit too faint for my liking ( you know I'm picky with my lavender ;)


Rating: 7/10






Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla


Burning time: Almost 20 hours


Wax Burns: It burns unevenly at first but evens out quickly and causes no wax memory. It burns relatively slow which is something you want your candle to do.


Scent Description: When unburned it had this delish cinnamon cookie scent that tempts you to eat it (don't though). When burned it's still equally delicious smelling with just the right amount of cinnamon and vanilla in the air. I don't like overwhelming vanilla scents and this one is perfect for me and everyone who smelt it so far!


Scent strength: You can immediately smell it once you enter the room and you can sit comfortably next to it without the smell killing your nostrils which is what I love about this candle.


The Wick: It has 2 wicks which is great because you rarely find a small candle with more than one wick. The wick is made of robe that is sturdy and doesn't flail once burned so you won't have a buried wick in your wax (a pain for all candle lovers.)


Packaging: Glass is good quality and doesn't crack while burning.


Price: 70 EGP


Delivery: 45 EGP




Overall Experience


I loved burning this one and I'm definitely buying it again once I'm done with it. It's going to be a fall/winter stable for me because I kid you not, the moment I lit the candle it made me feel warm enough to take my fuzzy PJ coat off.


Rating: 8.5/10




"AmCandl" Overall Review


I loved dealing with this brand. The girl behind it all was always very polite with me, constantly checkin up if I received the candles and if there was anything wrong with the order.


I ordered from their Instagram account (linked above) and the order came in a timely manner.



Now for the "Introduction":


You probably don't know this about me (yet) but I'm obsessed with candles. My all time favorites were always the Bath and Body Works ones. But now with the new economy I can't justify spending 500+ EGP on a single candle, even if it lasts a bajillion hours!


So, that led me to scout the Egyptian market for candles I can burn and enjoy that are locally made and won't cost me a kidney.


I was happily surprised to find so many decent brands on Instagram and this is the first Egyptian made one for me to try and I must say I think I might not resort to the BBW candles again.


I hope you enjoyed this review and if you did buy from "AmCandl" send me pics of the scents you chose, I'd love to see what people love to burn (that sounded wrong but you know what I mean ;)
