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.
Item arrived after 2 weeks. Not the usual candle brand I buy. Unfortunately, nowhere in the description does it say these are Yankee candles. Disappointed that they were. Far too much packaging when they arrived. Scent is not overpowering and container looks pleasant.
I was a true believer that Yankee was the best candles due to the intensity of the fragrance and longevity of the candles. Well yankee candles move over cuz I have a new lover. OMG...the fragrance is so intense that I couldn’t burn it for more than one hour. The fragrance lingered in my bedroom for hours afterwards. It burns very well, so it will last a long time, therefore priced very well. I bought the grapefruit and look forward to trying more fragrances.
This is the best candle I’ve ever bought, scent-wise. I don’t know if it is because the wax is soy, but you smell the scent, not the wax. (Unlike yankee candle, who incidentally, bought this company and brand, too.)
My only complaint is that the candles burn very quickly. They only last for about 5 hours. Still, at $14, they are a better value than yankee candle and if you want a delicious fresh softly fruity scent, this is for you.
The grapefruit mango scent is too much for my 440 sqft studio. If I burn it for too long, the air is hard to breathe because it's so heavily perfumed. It smells good, but I don't want to taste it. The other two I got (Mediterranean citrus and white lily pear) were perfect and light. This one is not. I would only recommend if you have a large open space with circulating air/good ventilation.
This scent from Chesapeake Bay Candles "Grapefruit and Mango - Love and Passion" is intoxicating and luscious. I love the fragrance of Grapefruit and when paired with the right fruit or floral note like this candle I think it will definitely become one of your favorite scents. Thanks, Diane
I thought I was going to love this. It smells great unlit , however once you lit the wicks your room will fill full of a kerosene smell . I thought at first, it would go away , maybe the wicks needed time to burn something off . Boy, was I was wrong . I just ended up nauseous and with a migraine.
When I open the lid of the candle it smells great, but once I light it, it seriously just smells like something is burning. Smells like fire and not in the good way. Disappointed but for the price can’t expect too much I guess.
Great scent! Lasts a really long time. Lit for two days in a row so far and for about 8+ hrs each time. House even smelled amazing upon returning hours later after candle had been put out. Also, still have a little over half the candle left after burning the two days. Will buy again and try other scents.
