The Solution to Online Candle Shopping!
We know candle shopping online leaves out your favorite part... The Sniff Test! That's why we created The Sniff Kit! The Sniff Kit is a set of tea light candles in a variety of scents. This allows you to you try out several candle scents risk-free before you buy!
Our tealights are made in an effort for zero-waste candles. In every batch pour, there is a little leftover wax that would otherwise go to waste, that we use to make Sniff Kits! Our tealights come in recyclable tins with lids because at Benefiscent, we HATE single-use plastics...
sniff kit customers said...
I was really nervous about purchasing candles without getting to smell them first. I ordered Sniff Kits so that I could have plenty of options to smell and decide between. This was perfect and helped me decide which candle to order next!
I really like the idea of the sniff kits! I ordered 3 different sets and a rose candle for my daughter for Valentines Day. They arrived in just a couple of days and she and I had a great time sniffing!
When you cant decide... [Sniff Kits] Are a great way to try different scents. They come in nice tin containers with lids. Helps me decide which scent is best for different times.
You can smell these candles THROUGH the jar. It's incredible. I'm a candle fanatic and absolutely blown away by the quality!
One of the best candles I've bought! This candle smells AMAZING and was delivered in 2 days. I can’t get enough of it. 10/10 would highly recommend. I love it! [Côte d'Azur Candle]
Light, uplifting scent! I have to admit that I usually do not gravitate towards floral scented candles, but this one is amazing!! It smells just like roses would in the garden. It is not heavy or overpowering; it is just right!! Also, the candle and lid itself are beautiful! [A Dozen Roses Candle]
This candle was amazing! I absolutely love lavender so this candle made me very happy. Even after I blew the candle out at bedtime, the smell wafted through the room afterwards for a solid hour. In the morning when I woke up, I still was able to smell the candle, even though it wasn't burning! So pleased with this candle and can't wait to order another one! Also, the small size [petite lavender candle] is just adorable and makes my heart smile every time I look at it!
Love love love my new Clementine & Pine candle! A warm and comforting scent.
ONE OF MY NEW FAVORITE CANDLES! This candle helps make my room smell fantastic and feel cozy. The smell is subtle at first but gets stronger once it stays lit. This was exactly what I was looking for!
I got a sample size of Amalfi Coast with my order and am definitely ordering a full size one. It smells exactly like a day at the beach in the best way possible. Bright and complex but not overbearing. Amazing.
Light fresh scent, reminiscent of a walk on the beach. Smell of oranges and mango is soft yet noticeable, without overpowering. Perfect for a summer day. Comes in eco-friendly gift box. Beautiful blue glass container with wooded lid. [Bali Candle]
Love this scent! I light this candle almost every night. If i could give this candle more than 5 stars i would. [Madagascar Vanilla Candle]
