The candles came in either sets of 2 3wicks, a pack of tealights, or 5 votives in a real cute "Storybook" tin container. They are all available to order now but they will not be shipped/delivered until well into September to ensure the wax wont melt during the journey. 


Here's the actual sniff review


  1. I'm an avid QVC shopper, as well as a candle lover, so naturally the TSV intrigued me. I hadn't heard of Slatkin before, but after some googling, I'm now convinced that his candles are some of the best around. I purchased 2 sets of the 3-wick candles - the Salted Caramel Cake & Hot Spiced Apple Crumb and Toasted Vanilla Cupcake & Banana Maple Pancakes. I can't wait to experience their greatness firsthand.

    1. Have you received your candles yet? Just wondering what you thought about the fall scents.

  2. Arrggh! I can't tell you how smiley all the Slatkin love is making me 😁 I know I'm still a relative newby but his scents are the best. Looking forward to your reviews (when you've ordered) I really hope these are coming to the UK 🇬🇧

  3. Hooray, my first shipment of Slatkin Homeworx 3wick candles have arrived!! I ordered Trim The Tree (TTT) and Deck the Halls (DTH), which smells exactly like a die-hard Slatkin fan would expect it to - just like the DTH of the 2010ish Slatkin BBW era. Both candles have a gorgeous presentation with holiday designs on the glass and green wax for DTH and white wax for TTT. As far as TTT's scent it's hard to think of an old Slatkin candle that smells similar. It's almost like a holiday fruit and Christmas tree combo smell. Sounds gross but it's quite fabulous and as close as you can come to smelling like the holidays without that obnoxiously strong cinnamon/spice flavor that's in BBW's Holiday and Cinnamon Frosting candles. After burning each for a few hours both had the gorgeous dancing flames and mushroom top wicks.

    I am happy with my purchases and actually just ordered two more 3 wicks in Spiced Eggnog and Royal Bellini. P.S. if you order now the price is $38.72 +shipping for 2 candles at 15oz. each. Not bad!! Oh yeah, the scent throw is good too! I have been a huge fan of this site for several years and this is my first time to comment ;)
