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 own four of these candles. Two of them (peace & tranquility and balance & harmony) are very fragrant and can fill a room. The other two, which are both serenity & calm (lavender thyme) bought at the same time, have little to no scent at all. I'm wondering if it's a bad batch? The burn time on all of the candles is good. They seem to last as long as they say.
Candle tip I recently learned - Make sure when you light it for the first time you let it burn long enough so that the wax melts all the way to the edge. Apparently candles have 'memory' and if you don't do this the next time you light it it will only burn as far out as when previously lit and then you end up with a bunch of unused wax.
I thought that this candle (Lavender and Thyme) would relax me as I took a bath. It had the opposite effect. The scent was so strong it made me want to get out of the tub asap. I know lavender has the reputation for being soothing but I don't know if the addition of the thyme gave it a wickedly strong scent imo. The candle seems to last reasonably long but maybe that's because it doesn't burn a long time when I light it. I was definitely not feeling the "serenity and calm" influence I was hoping for.
For a Chesapeake candle the scent was very weak. I guess it could be perceived as being more “subtle” but I was disappointed by the scent strength. It still smells good but the smell doesn’t spread as well as other candles from this brand. More on par with how the essential oil scents spread in a diffuser which isn’t bad but once again not as strong
I bought the serenity + calm scent (lavender & thyme). It has a nice smell but the scent is SO light. It takes forever for me to smell it after it’s lit. I wish the scent was at least twice as strong. At first I thought the candle was just plain wax with no scent at all. The glass the candle comes in is really nice though.
I got this due to stellar reviews. However I am not impressed by it. I can barely smell it. What I smell is not lavender. It also leaves a lot of smoke when you turn it off. I have had better candles and I am honestly disappointed.
Not going to lie i was expecting more based on this product's rating. Not really any scent, i use my candle as a bathroom pairing and for random lighting for rooms. This doesn't really omit a scent, will be purchasing a candle with a better scent. Good design and build attempt. Like the wood top.
The candle jar is pretty and high quality and the smell while lit is just okay. Seems to last a while. The aftersmell it leaves in the apartment is a cross between chemicals and cigarettes (I don't smoke). Would not buy again.
