So I purchased both the Glass and Tin Jars of the Coffee Shop candles from Simple Good via their website and they are amazing. They smell great and they're soy based so I know I'm not breathing in god knows what. Also the candles are produced by the Queer Candle Company which is run by these two young girls about my age I think, I am 26 and I like the idea of supporting a young, small business especially when they're producing a high quality product like this. I think they may be a Brooklyn based company but I am not sure. Anyway I first purchased the coffee shop candle in September of 2019 in Port Jefferson at the Simple Good shop after I met up with an ex-boyfriend at the nearby park (don't recommend fyi) and absolutely loved the smell. The founders were also there at this time tabling and they were just awesome. They knew their product well and they were just the kindest people ever. The store owner was also great, checkout was seamless and easy, and overall the store is just comfy and ahead of its time which provided me with a great shopping experience.
March of 2020 I decided I wanted more of these candles, specifically the coffee shop ones and so I checked online via a google search and no one had them. I messaged the QCC via their instagram and they found that this place simple good had three left in stock and so I ordered the glass and tin ones. The glass jar is larger and the tin is slightly smaller. Both great in terms of quality and smell, I loved how the coffee beans were throughout the candle and not just some decoration on top of the candle.
Now you might be looking at the price and think its a pricey for a candle but you need to realize this isnt some yankee candle non sense. This is a soy based high quality candle. When your candle is burning it is influencing the quality of the air. You can choose to breath in industrial chemicals/wax like paraffin wax in most candles or you can choose to burn soy. a soy bean. its a plant. Like it doesn't get any better than that. and your'e burning literal pieces of coffee. You just have to decide for yourself. Do you want a home with clean pure air with a QCC candle or one with industrious fumes burning with some candle from your local CVS. Are you a Mercedes or a Hyundai. #treatyoself
