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.
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.
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.
I received the candles on time. Very nice candles. They burn clean, no black smoke, Dripless. They last a long time. I used them for 3 hours and I have 3/4 of the candles left. I am very pleased with the packaging- none were broken. They have a good long enough wick to start them off with and the flame is a good size, not like some that flicker and almost want to turn off. I have found the right candle company to buy future candles from.
These candles didn't drip onto my table cloth, so I'm very satisfied! The box they came in didn't indicate they were dripless, which concerned me; however, towards the end of our party, I looked at them and there wasn't any candle wax on my table. It was a relief because of the time consuming task of removing candle wax from my candle holders and tablecloth. Will buy again!
These candles are incredible. They do not drip at all!! I burned them for a party yesterday and there was not a single drip on my table runner and I burned them about 2/3 of the way down before I blew them out! This is not a waste of your money.
