Tired of dishing out large sums of moola for non-soy candles from favorite scent shop so I ventured out on the net to find a soy candle company worth it's wax. Pure Integrity has me sold with their packaging and this aroma. We purchased several scents to try and instantly fell in love with the Victorian Christmas. This aroma is Christmas in a jar. I feel the urge to bring home a tree, decorate for Christmas, eat baked goods, and venture off to the malls regardless of the crowds. Note: If this were an essential oil I'd take it with me to sniff every-time someone in line compromises my Christmas spirit. I recommend the largest jar possible and purchasing at least two for the upcoming Holidays. The scent has the same wonderful smell we love while venturing out to the malls; but this scent has a distinctly purer smell than those paraffin money suckers in the malls. If skeptical, get the soy melts instead. They're reasonably priced and will make or break your decision. Enjoy!
Our animal shelter has cats housed in our main lobby, which makes it difficult to maintain a fresh first impression for our guests. We have tried scented candles, crystals, plug-ins...you name it! Nothing really had any staying power and we had concerns about the harmful chemicals these options emitted into our air- for our employees and guests, but especially for our four-legged inhabitants.
While looking for a safer alternative for our lobby I came across Pure Integrity. This holiday season we have Victorian Christmas wax melts simmering from the time we get here in the morning to clean and care for the animals to the time the last guests and volunteers have left. The scent is lovely and clean, but strong enough to battle even the most pungent critter odors. We have had so many compliments on the freshness greeting guests when they come in the building, and we are content knowing we aren't exposing anyone to harmful pollutants.
I was shopping for candles as Christmas presents.
I had no idea that most candles are not good for you. So educated myself, and then realized that explained why I had been sneezing when I burned candles. Hmm. Then I searched for soy candles and natural wicks, and there you were. As I read about the way you produce your candles, and how it was a family business, I started to get excited. Before I gave this as a gift, I did open the candle to sniff. I was so impressed with the smell that I left it on my desk, not burning, just wafting. I also like that there are no obvious labels (apart from bottom) on the container. A final plus is the lack smoke when extinguished. I now know where to go for candles. Hope you have a happy and successful new year!
I found Pure Integrity on line and reviews were positive and price reasonable so I ordered several fragrances in melts to try. I am so in love with Victorian Christmas that I haven't tried the others yet but these are awesome. I live in mobile home so I prefer the electric warmers to an open flame. I melted 2 melts and it quickly scented my living room kitchen and hallway. I also loved the hand written thank you note and sample tealightss that came with my order. I burned a tealightss on my screened in porch..incredible. I will definitely be stocking up after the holidays and also plan to use as gifts to encourage others to go soy instead of wax candles and all that poison. Thank you Theresa for a wonderful product. Merry Christmas
The Victorian Christmas is wonderful. It is the first Pure Integrity candle I purchased, and I have been very pleased. We have a two story space, but the scent fills the entire main living space... I can smell it when I walk in the house even though it is burning in the other room. It burns evenly, and I love the frosted glass container - pretty but understated. And this scent feels very much like Christmas. I have a feeling I will be burning it enough to use it up this year and will need to reorder for next. The shipping was quick, the packaging was well done, and the personal note and small sample were very thoughtful and appreciated. Thank you for your great customer service, and a great product!
Love this scent! Smells natural, and it did not take long to fill the room with it's warm, friendly scent. Memories of Christmas past came to mind, especially the natural Christmas trees we had when I was a young child. Very clean burning, no black smoke. Beautiful frosted glass with no labeling except on the bottom. Love this business and how much they care; they included a free sample of another scent they thought I might like based on what I ordered....they were spot on! There was a handwritten thank you note included with my candles! I will be a forever customer as I burn candles daily! Your mood can change just by the influence of scent and isn't it wonderful that these are healthy candles!
This is one of the most unique scents I have ever experienced. It definitely reminds me of Christmas, however, it is unlike any other Christmas scent I have ever purchased. I had this burning in my kitchen the day I was decorating for Christmas. Talk about putting you in the holiday spirit. Aside from the fact these are the best smelling candles I have ever come upon, I am grateful for no more black soot and toxins. I have not been burning candles for years due to the carcinogen factors, black soot ceilings, headaches, etc. Thank you for taking so much time and effort to make these not only safe for consmers, but also for our environment.
On cold smell this candle is amazing! Pine, sugar and Christmas aromas. I'm sure this candle will be soo good when I finally burn it. I prefer the stronger scented candles, and I'm sure this one will not disappoint me! Every PI candle I've burned does not pool, nor have I ever had wick issues. The jars with the wood lids are nice too. I recycle the jars. I just add water to the remaining wax in the jar, and let it soak overnight. Then I put Goo Gone in the jar once I've removed the remaining wax. Let that soak for a day. Then I have great looking jars to either use myself or donate.
My first Pure Integrity soy candle was a Victorian Christmas candle given by a co-worker and I was immediately hooked. I have since ordered and re-ordered, many based upon the lovely free samples sent with every order. Victorian Christmas is my favorite, which I order most often. It's an indescribable fragrance which conjures up the best of the holidays. The maple is great to burn for late winter/early spring and every order comes with a handwritten, heartfelt personal note. I'm a customer for life and only hope that I can visit the store someday to discover more wonderful fragrances.
As part of my very first order of Pure Integrity candles I purchased the Victorian Christmas for the holidays. It is such a lovely scent I will be burning it for the rest of the winter season! The candles from Pure Integrity are not only simple and beautiful in their design and scents, but they burn slowly and evenly, which makes them a good value as well. Add great customer service with a personal touch to the list. I will definitely be a regular customer!
I was recently introduced to Pure Integrity candles. I bought the 5 oz jar in this fragrance since it was just a few days from December. I was skeptical that it would smell like Christmas, since I never grew up with a real Christmas tree. But, after lighting it, my immediate thought was "It smells like Christmas!". It brought back some wonderful memories holiday shopping and spending time with friends. The fragrance filled up most my house despite being one of the smaller candles. Shipping was quick and I am extremely happy with my purchase.
I was first introduced to Pure Integrity and Victorian Christmas back when I lived near Buffalo, NY in early 2000. I have sinced moved to Washington State but every year, I buy the Victorian Christmas (and many more!) because they are the best candles I have ever tried. I, for years, was only buying Yankee Candles but never again. Pure Integrity candles are a strong scent - clean burning and an even burn. Victorian Christmas is a must for my every holiday season and smells just as described! Thanks Teresa & Jeffrey!
Love, love, LOVE! I've purchased this candle during the fall season, and I look forward to light it when winter rolls in. I'm a true lover of the fall scents, and never have I gotten so pumped for a winter candle. This is a winner! Just enough evergreen for me, usually i'm not a fan of the smell. This is a dynamic smelling candle for sure! Has just the right notes of Christmas time. I'm sure the scent is even grander when warmed. I've been tempted to light it! :)
I ordered the Victorian Christmas, Cranberry Spice and Cinnamon candles. I have issues with other scented candles, but these soy based candals I don't have issues with. The scent is I wonderful without being overwhelming. I am asthmatic... And I like the purity of soy based candles.
I arrived a gift card from a dear friend and I am so glad to learn about Pure Integrity Candles! I will definitely introduce this company to friends.
We burned this in a fairly large room with vaulted ceilings and it smelled fantastic! Once lit, this candle fills the room with a solid scent of Christmas! It was a very pleasing scent that in some way just evokes thoughts of Christmas! One of our favorites! Like other Integrity Candles, you won't find this candle to be obnoxious or overpowering. Last, you can feel good knowing you are not breathing in harsh chemicals!
This candle is AMAZING!! I love strong, earthy Christmas scents like Evergreen and Mistletoe. Something that smells like a Christmas tree! I read the reviews for this candle and decided to purchase this one as well.
SOOOO glad I did! I lit it and the house just smelled like home at Christmas. It is the perfect Christmas scent and it smells intoxicating! You NEED this candle for the holidays, you won't regret it!
I found Pure Integrity online and decided to place an order. My order was based on customer reviews. I tried Victorian Christmas and instantly fell in love with the scent!!! I love traditional Christmas tree/ Pine scents. I continue to buy this for Christmas and to give as gifts - everyone loves this scent - wonderful throughout the whole house - makes you feel warm when you smell it. I'm burning it right now!
I am not a fan of traditional "Christmas scents". I do not like Pine or Spruce smells. But the customer service rep recommended this scent as a Christmas scent alternative. I burned it for 3 hours one day and the scent is pleasant. But it is very light. It did not move throughout my house like other scents do. Instead it stayed right in the room I was burning it in. Again its a pleasant scent...but not strong.
We are repeat customers and have used and given PI candles for many years. The Victorian Christmas candle has been a gift to some of our friends and they look forward to receiving them. They say they smell of the holiday in a good natural way. We have always been impressed by the quality of ingredients and the righteous way they are made. We are grateful to have such a quality option...
These candles are my Christmas present to me. My sister introduced Pure Integrity candles to me a few years ago and now they are the only ines I buy. I like the way they burn evenly with no waste. I love Victorian Christmas but I have to admit I have not tried too many other scents. That will have to wait until my next order. The personalized thank you card also keeps me coming back.
I have only tried using the cinnamon melts so far so I can speak about the other scents just yet. I received my order very promptly, thank you, and loved the personal note. Thank you again. I also love the fragrance of this melt. I just wish it was a bit stronger~ that would be the only suggestion I could offer right now. I think your company is great and would definitely order again.
I love these candles! I am chemically sensitive, and have had a hard time in the past finding candles that are made consciously but still smell good. I usually get essential oil candles, but it's hard to get certain seasonal scents with just essential oils. I love that Pure Integrity has a way of making their scents in the most natural way possible without using only essential oils.
This scent is absolutely incredible! It embodies all of the scents and feelings of Christmas. To me, there is some fresh-cut Christmas tree, a bit of fireplace, and a tiny bit of holiday spice. It is exactly what Christmas smells like and words just cannot explain! I have gifted it twice and the recipients loved it. Pure Integrity is such a wonderful company. God Bless to all!
I am a repeat customer of Pure Integrity Soy Candles. Their candles have the best and strongest long lasting fragrances of any candles I have purchased. More importantly, the double cotton wicks make the candles burn evenly and never have any tunneling. I highly recommend them any time of the year. They also ship the candles to you as quickly and well packaged as possible!
Love this one! This is Christmas! I live in a Victorian era home, and these little tealights were so fragrant that placed here and there, they scented the entire place! That's miraculous for tealights! What I appreciate is that they burn just long enough- perhaps 5 hours. Of an evening, that's just right! No soot or anything to speak of. Just a wonderful little candle.
I love the scent of this candle! It has a good throw, and the jar is attractive. I burned it in a medium sized room and we could smell it as soon as we walked into the room. I came upon this website via a search for healthier candles, since I had learned the paraffin candles were toxic.
I would definitely recommend these candles, and will buy them again!
I have tried for so many years to find that perfect fragrance. I live in S. Florida and have not had a real tree for over 20 years....the other candle store has an ok smelling fragrance, but, it does seem artificial.
This candle brings back childhood memories of finding the perfect tree with the best fragrance. I will DEFINATELY be a repeat customer.
I've been a candle lover all my life but it wasn't until I discovered Pure Integrity candles that I discovered no other candle comes close. Soy based and the best aromas with beautiful recyclable containers. I am giving some of these candles as Thanksgiving host gifts and Christmas gifts. My favorite for the holidays are Pumpkin Spice and Apple Strudel.
I have purchased these candles in the past and I have to say, I order the Victorian Christmas scent as I really love it. I know I should try other scents and I may in the future but I know this one is good. They are perfect for Christmas and all year long. My sister purchased these first and I was hooked. Keep up the good work and Merry Christmas.
I found your website from a blog that reviewed "good smelling" candles. I ordered the Victorian Christmas candle and it smelled glorious. Not too sweet. Ordering from the website was easy and the package arrived quickly with a sweet hand written note and a sample of the grape candle. A great way to start the holidays! Well done Pure Integrity!
