how to be a candle tester

Want to become a candle tester?

Every couple months we start thinking about creating new fragrances we know all our candle friends will love--and that's where Candle Testers come in! Candle Testers are a group of lucky candle friends who are randomly drawn to personally try out potential new fragrances. These are our most loyal candle friends chosen exclusively from the Antique Candle Co. email list!

Candle Testers are the first friends in all of the US to test 6-8 fragrance samples we are thinking about adding to our Signature Collection. This means that YOU decide what new scent will become an Antique Candle Co. candle!

One of our favorite parts of picking a new fragrance is sending out all those samples to you and hearing your individual feedback. Your honesty is what we value most when it comes to picking the perfect scent! We LOVED the feedback from some sweet Candle Testers about our newest signature fragrance, Georgia Peach:

"You guys knocked it out of the park with this candle. It was just like fresh picked peaches!"
"Voted #1 in my house. It's the perfect summer scent and screams 'juicy Georgia Peach.'"

We need YOU to help us pick the next Antique Candle Co. fragrance! Here's how to sign up for your chance to be a Candle Tester:

  1. Sign up to be an email friend HERE.
  2. Be on the lookout for the latest candle news and updates.
    (A Candle Tester Sign-Up email will be sent out on a day we announce on Instagram!)
  3. Sign up and wait for your chance to be drawn as a Candle Tester!

It's as easy as that! After you sign up to be a Candle Tester via the Tester Sign-Up email, we will let you know shortly if you are chosen to test out our latest yummy fragrances!

(Even if you're not chosen, you might still get a little extra candle goodness as a special thank you! *wink wink*)

We can't thank you enough for helping us choose the PERFECT new fragrance to share with all our sweet candle friends! It is people like you helping a small business like this that creates something truly special through our candles.


Check out who is creating our NEXT COLLABORATION FRAGRANCE:

Holly + Brad from Our Faux Farmhouse! These two are truly an amazing duo who will choose the PERFECT new timeless fragrance.

1,000 candle testers helped Holly + Brad sample some of the fragrances for the Our Faux Farmhouse collaborative candle! The Antique Candle Co. AND Our Faux Farmhouse crew loved hearing their thoughts! If you were not selected, don't worry! We are always ready to sample new candles and would love to include you in the next round, friend!
