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.
PROS: Nicely packaged - strong glass container, (includes lid), is very strong and does not get hot to the touch - provides nice decor. CONS: Scent is VERY faint - can barely detect it, and only if very close to the candle. Decent burning time but NOWHERE NEAR as long as advertised. Basically, a good candle, but TOO OVERPRICED considering it's drawbacks.
I have been buying these candles for 3+ years. I am a scented candle fanatic and have tried them all- pet odour candles, Bath and Body Works, independent candlemakers, etc. I now exclusively buy Chesapeake.
This candle burns the cleanest, has the longest lasting and best scent balance, and burns longer than any other candle I have ever purchased.
My only advice is to buy the “medium” size for the best value for money; if you check out the product chart the medium size burns the longest, so dollar-per-burn-time it is the best deal.
I understand some scent-sensitive people claim these candles are too strong but I prefer the whole room to smell, so I appreciate it and it is not an offensive strength. Others who complain about the price are insane- a travel-size candle at Indigo costs $16 and a Bath and Body Works candle is $40. This candle is priced low for the value and materials. Anyone who says they can get a Glade candle for $10 would never go back after smelling this premium candle.
It stinks. It smells "okay" before you light it but once it's out it smells very "chemical-ly" like a highly scented cleaning product... It also came packaged as a Yankee candle which I didn't know from the Amazon ad and it's not a full soy candle, it's a soy blend and it isn't clear what that blend is.
This candle is great! The scent is light where it’s just lingers through the room; not overpowering and overbearing at all. A calming scent. I love it so much. However I think for the price, the quantity is slightly unreasonable—there should be more.
Much smaller than I originally thought, and the scent isn’t as strong as some reviewers made it seem- but it is beautifully packaged and the scent has not disappeared from being left open. I would consider purchasing again.
