Woodwick Candles Review

The WoodWick Candles are particularly acclaimed for their natural wicks which, as the name of the brand suggests, are designed in organic wood in order to evoke the feel and sound of cracking wood, similar to the experience of sitting by the fire in the middle of the woods or a fireplace in the comfort of your living room.

A consistent feature of the WoodWick brand are the candle holders, generally consisting of a slightly curved, translucent jar emblazoned with the WoodWick logo and, depending on the size, the name of the scent. However, there are other designs available, such as the leaf shade candles resembling lamps and candle holders with nature-themed designs, like the Willow Frosted Premium WoodWick Candle.

In keeping with the nature theme, some of the WoodWick scents are also based on nature, boasting names like fir, redwood, “evening bonfire”, “gentle rain” and “creekside cabin”. You may also opt for one of the WoodWick Trilogy candles that combine a trio of scents into one candle, resulting in an entirely new, high-quality fragrance as each layer of soy wax melts.

If you’re interested in purchasing WoodWick candles in bulk or are looking for information on wholesale purchases, the easiest method is to contact the company directly. Alternatively, if you happen to live or be near Minnesota, you can visit one of the three The Woods retail locations where you can also explore some of their other products like the oil diffusers.

The Good

  • Unique organic wood wicks emulate the sound of cracking wood.
  • Highly regarded fir scented candles.
  • A variety of scents and designs with a nature theme.

The Bad

  • Wick burning times can vary considerably, potentially affecting the overall product value.
  • It’s possible to purchase a candle with a wick that will not stay lit.
  • WoodWick brand candles are only available in select stores.

My Two Scents

The distinctive wick of WoodWick Candles can be something of a double-edged sword. Although it is a unique feature, it is entirely possible to have a candle with a wick that burns too fast or simply will not stay lit. Some customers have however expressed that their candles do in fact burn for quite a long time; your experience may likely vary. While WoodWick offers a wide array of scents, most customers seem to prefer to use these candles during the holidays, with many of them expressing that the nature scents capture the feeling of the season, particularly the well-regarded fir scents.

The majority of the WoodWick Candles featuring the standard translucent jar are available in three sizes: 3.5 inches, five inches, and nine inches in height and 3.4 ounces, ten ounces or 22 ounces, respectively. The burn times and average price for these candles are as follows:

  • 3.4 oz. – 40 hours ($11)
  • 10 oz. – 100 hours ($20)
