I received the "peace + tranquility" candle as a gift for Christmas. I loved the smell so I wanted to try others. "Joy + laughter" smells amazing. I will say "peace + tranquility" has a more clean/refreshing smell, while "joy + laughter" is more sweet- almost like a perfume. I plan to try more scents in the future because I love these so much! Definitely would recommend. PS. I am sensitive to strong scents (sometimes get headaches from them) and these do not bother me.
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.
This is a very light pleasant smell. My sister had one and I lived how nice her house smelled. It hid the pet smell too. I ordered one and although it’s very pricey for a small/medium sized candle, it’s good quality. I’ve burned it for 2-4 hours at a time 3 times so far, and it barely shows use. I imagine it will actually last quite a while. It would be a nice gift. Also, maybe not important to everyone, but the stickers come off and don’t leave a residue. I appreciate not having sticker crap all over my candle.
*Cashmere & Jasmine* As someone who enjoys a more subtle, less invasive scent profiling, I thoroughly enjoy this candle. If you’re looking to fill a space with the aroma, it may not be for you. The aroma is nice! Great quality candle! Burned slightly quicker than anticipated(could be longer) but nonetheless I will purchase again :) looking into maybe the milk &honey next .
I use a lot of candles from different brand because my husband smokes sometimes (off the window) and I keep putting candles in every room to make sure there is no smell. This is probably one of my favorite ones, not too strong, very pleasant and nice smell, not overwhelming but it works to camouflage bad odors. Ordering more!
I absolutely love this product and will order it again. The fragrance is heavenly and lasting. The candles burn for a long time. I keep the wooden tops to use them as coasters (after applying some moleskin onto the underside). Courage and Wisdom is my other favorite.
