A Message From Andrea

Andrea Haskins, Candle ScoopI originally founded Candle Scoop as a sister blog to Candlefind…the site for candle lovers. In its infancy, the site flourished with comparison reviews, personal stories, candle tips, and the ever popular Yankee Candle Scent List.

Life happens, and the site went dormant as I took a much needed break from the wax world. Luckily for me, I was able to acquire Candlefind in late 2019, which also included Candle Scoop. A decision had to be made about the blog, but I just wasn’t quite clear what the direction should be. Furthermore, during the transfer, most of the original Candle Scoop content was lost! If I wanted to revive the site, I would have to do so pretty much from scratch. My heart was broken. With the added responsibility of now running ‘the big site,’ I let Candle Scoop sit in maintenance mode for months.

While working hard on rebranding Candlefind, a light bulb went off. As a wax lover myself, I found myself with several site bookmarks, Facebook pages, and newsletter subscriptions just to keep up with the fast-paced world of wax. It was insane! I wanted an easy way to digest that information so that I could make more informed purchased decisions. Now, more than ever, I needed a way to streamline the information. The new purpose for Candle Scoop was now very clear.

The rebirth of Candle Scoop has been a long, tedious process, but also a labor of love. This site is a personal extension of me, my knowledge, and my values. Every single detail has been considered, both as a scent expert and as a consumer. I hope you find the site useful and enjoyable, much as I do.
