Smells Great!

This candle smells exactly like what I expected given the name and description. The earthiness of the leather and dirt are perfectly complemented by the sweetness of the carrot and nutmeg. I only wish the throw was a bit stronger

for any nature lover

when i sniffed this candle it felt like it freshly rained and i’m going out to get a horse from the paddock. it’s very earthy and smells great !

In the Winners Circle

On your mark! Get set! Go...get this candle! Wow, this box may have been about beating the odds, but every single candle in here was a winner. Thoroughbred is a fun natural scent with hints of saddle, hay, dirt and carrots for the horses. I'm always so blown away by the uniqueness of the candles that Natasha and Mike come up with.

Horse Girl Approved

This is the perfect scent for the horse obsessed person in your life. The dirt, leather and carrots are such an earthy, comforting blend. This is pure nostalgia for me. Love it!

Smells like a winner

Cute label, great colour that matches the scent. I’ve been around rodeos, this candle reminds me of the scents mingling on a warm day. Great candle for anyone who loves earthy scents.

Really liked this!

Its got an earthy quality to it but also a hint of sweet.

And Off They Go!

This candle packs a punch, but in the best way possible. I've never been to the races, but I can only imagine this is what it would smell like. Very earthy with that hint of sweetness (the carrot). Really love it.

One for the horse lovers!

This candle definitely reminds me of horses and some (the good) smells I associate with them! It is a leathery kind of manly smell and it’s nice!


I was honestly super excited for this one, but I was let down by the scent. I don't know if maybe I just got an off one, but I've had multiple people smell this and it doesn't smell like anything reminiscent of horses, barns, or leather tack to any of us...and we've been around horses a long time. It's an okay scent, but I expected a muskier, earthier, more leathery scent. It's just a bit bland for me, and the scent profile is muddled.
