To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Very disappointed with these candles. Just used them for a celebration homebound dinner and now I have wax on my black dining room table. Yes, they are inexpensive, but they shouldn't say "dripless" when they clearly aren't. And, we used them for a total of one hour and they were half way down so question how they would last for 7 1/2 hours. Just a warning for anyone buying these.
They burn very nicely. They don't drip. It is my personal opinion that they Do NOT Smell. I almost didn't buy them because I thought they would stink but they don't! I high recommend them. I will buy them again. They arrived intact.
After a recent power outage, I bought this box of candles for emergency lighting. I think they are the right size to do that job. They appear to be well made, but they are candles, not expensive light bulbs. So don't expect them to last forever; maybe long enough to avoid falling down the stairs or tripping over the dog. And I'm sure they are cheaper than a trip to the emergency room.
The candles arrived well-packaged and in good shape. The tapers are a bit thicker than 10" tapers generally found in local stores and sit nicely straight in my candle holders. That was what I wanted so that pleased me. The package did not indicate them as dripless but, I took a chance since they are European made. I only burned 2 tapers half way thus far but, they did not drip on my tablecloth. I am quite pleased with the purchase thus far.
Bolsius 10 inch White taper candles (10 In a box)
These candles are great! I use alot of candles and normally have to buy them in large quantities, and the pkg of 10 was great to start with. These candles burn evenly, they last a long time and do not have a "waxy" smell to them. I shared some with my daughter and she agrees completely, so much so that I got her a few boxes for Christmas. I am very grateful that my candle shopping around days are over, I will be purchasing this brand from now on! If you love candles, these are the ones you should get. Thank you Bolsius!
I have a lot of really old candle holders that are about 3/4 inch (maybe slightly larger). I had to screw them in a bit, but that is normal (they fit like a glove) so they were just the size I was looking for. We lit them almost every night for dinner for a week and they were half their height by the end.
They seem to burn a little faster than my old pillar candles, but these fit in my thrift store crystal candlesticks (which have been surprisingly difficult to fit candles in). I don't have to melt and drip wax into the bottom of the candlesticks for the candles to get them to stay vertical. These are thicker and go in firm (they don't feel like they might fall over unexpectedly and burn my house down). I haven't noticed any drip which is great because my old pillars dripped and spilled like crazy. All in all - I'm happy with my purchase, and I will probably stick with this brand for my particular candlesticks.
They are nice and long. They last a very long time. The only complaint that I have isn’t really that bad. The base was to think for the holders I purchased. Either the holders were to small but stated standard or the candles were to thick. Either way I cut them down to fit. Easy to do.
