Product Review: Corgi Collection by Joseph Court Candles

Denise Allegro is a fellow crazy corgi lady who also happens to be the owner of the amazing candle company Joseph Court Candles. (Check out her Makers Q&A to read all about the story behind her business. She’s such an inspiring entrepreneur!)

Denise and I connected after I saw her adorable corgi candles pop up in my Corgi Nation Facebook groups. She just released her corgi-themed candle collection this year and people were going bananas over them! Those adorable candle names really sealed the deal for me… “Splootin’ Pantaloons”, “Welsh Wiggle Butt”, and “Low Rider Love” just to name a few.

When I chatted with Denise, she told me about the process in which candles are tested and developed. She focuses a large part of her time and energy into research and development of her proprietary formulas, always striving to evolve and perfect her products over time. Denise is like a mad scientist of the candle world… her knowledge of candles is so extensive! The most incredible part is that she’s been a one woman show for over 10 years (with occasional help from her husband and two corgis). Denise has a 900 sq foot workshop in her home, where she hand pours each candle herself. She personally ensures that each product is the highest quality she can offer. The end product definitely reflects the thought, love, and care put into them.

The Corgi Collection

The Corgi Candle collection features their mascot, Flicker, and was inspired by Denise’s love of corgis over her lifetime. There are a total of 19 scents available in the collection.

My Thoughts

Now that the weather has gotten cooler, I’ve really been enjoying these candles throughout the day. Despite the candle being made of a blend of soy and coconut, there is no underlying coconut scent so the essential oils really shine through.

Corgi Fairy Saddle is my go-to scent.

“Corgi Cottage” and “Corgi Fairy Saddle” are perfect as daytime scents… they’re super fresh and airy. “Welsh Wiggle Butt” and “Low Rider Love” are the ones I like to burn before bed, as a part of my nighttime routine; the warm sugary scents makes me feel so cozy! “Splootin’ Pantaloons” is has a citrusy aroma that works for both day and nighttime. Plus, the name is fluffin’ ADORABLE! The intensity of the scents all range, so there’s something for everyone. I personally prefer lighter scents, and found these candles to be beautifully fragrant without being too overpowering.

Queen Lucy approves that the house now smells good like nomnoms. 🙂

I highly recommend these candles for anyone who wants to add a little corgi love to their home. They’re also perfect as holiday gifts!
