Granny's Kountry Candles Haul

Hi ! Today I have a haul from Granny's Kountry Candles. She had an AMAZING sale for Easter, you got 10 (TEN!!) free clamshells if you spent more than 25$, I mean how awesome is that ? I really liked my first order from her, everything threw well,lasted a super long time and she has a great variety of scents. My mom just loves her florals ! I was very excited about my order...but so bummed when I received it. You ask me why ? I would say about half of my order came like this :(     

I had to rewrap everything in my own foil...which doesn't hold any better so I ordered some cello bags off Ebay but I have yet to receive them.
 The GOOD news is Wendy (the owner) is changing her packaging to cello bags !! She contacted me and was so sorry about what happened, she's even going to send me some other tarts in the new packaging. I mean I would've never asked for that but it's so nice of her,it shows that she cares a lot about her customers ! 

Anyways, enough rambling on my part ! Onto what I got :

  • Butterfly Kisses - This is my favorite scent from GKC so I made sure I wouldn't run out anytime soon lol. It's very hard to describe, it's floral yet sweet at the same time, I even detect a bit of creaminess in there. It's just the perfect bedroom scent.

  • Tea Rose - This one is for my mom but I also enjoy it a lot lol ! A true rose scent, I don't think there's any tea in this but if there is it's very subtle. I don't really like floral scents but rose is one of the few I can tolerate.
  • Headache Relief - This one is very herbal but I have no idea what is in it ! All I know is that I've melted it before and it was very relaxing. 
  • Pink Sugar - This one is not your typical pink sugar scent, it's much creamier and richer. I like it a lot, it's a nice change from the usual !

  • French Lavender - Another one for my mother ! A super herbal lavender and sooo strong too ! This one is less my cup of tea though, I prefer sweet and comforting lavenders :)
  • Best Friends - I just can't get tired of this scent, especially with summer coming up ! Super fruity blend, I mostly smell strawberry though which is perfectly fine with me !
  • Birthday Cake - This smells more like vanilla and butter frosting than actual cake. It's good though and super strong on cold sniff

I won't do scent descriptions for these because I can't open them :(

  1. I guess it would be a bad idea to point out that all of her tarts are on sale cor $.45 and they will be arriving in her new packaging? ;)

    1. Aw you're cruel lol ! Unfortunately I'm gonna have to sit this one because my wallet won't be too happy if I don't !!

  2. please please put shipping costs on your posts cause i want to know how mc shipping your orders cost since i live in canada too

    1. Oh okay will do for future posts ! I don't remember this one but a package that heavy (7lbs) has to be shipped via UPS , it would cost about 25$ + 25$ of brokerage fees (which you always have to pay with UPS). But normally my shipping cost are about 20$ for a 3lbs package shipped via USPS First Class . Hope this helps :)

    2. Do you mean 25$ in shipping fees PLUS the 25$ brokerage and customs?


      I was thinking of placing an order today but not if I'm going to pay 50$+ on a 30$ order... :(

      Love your blog btw :)

  3. omg i ordered a $45 order and paid $24 shipping via ups, DO I HAVE TO PAY EXTRA FREES ON TOP OF THAT? omg im worries and how will i get charged?

    1. You might :S I didn't pay any additional fees on my first order but with this one I paid $23 of brokerage fees . They were both the same value and weight so I don't know what's up with that..

    2. omg im so worried, my ordered i placed was double the size of your order so im scared i will get charged alot especially since i had to pay $25 for shipping already, do you have to pay the ups man the charges?

    3. Yes you have to pay him in order to get your package and there's no way to know how much until it comes to your door :( how much does your order weight ??

    4. i ordered one 8oz candle and 80 simmerinf melts, im so worried about the cost, living in canada sucks, its unfair we need to pay shipping plus extra fees

  4. i ended up paying $43 to the ups man.. canada is so unfair. it would have been a $45 order for americans but for a canadian it was $107 for the wax plus shipping plus ups fees
