I must admit I was a bit hesitant to buy this because of the limited number of reviews, all coming from people who received the product at a discount. Further, the price seemed to good to be true for a candle this size, and without being able to first smell it, instead relying on the description, I was skeptical. However, I liked the look of the candle holder and knew even if I never burned the candle, it would fit in well with my decor. Well, not only am I glad I took the plunge, since my first purchase, I have since reordered several more of these candles so I can be sure to never run out. That said, it's been just over a month and the first candle is still going strong (about half full) despite being burned for several hours everyday. The scent is very fresh -- a bit floral, a bit sweet, a touch musky, and not at all cloying -- and has the ability to fill the whole home (I live in a 1600 sqft duplex condo) without feeling cloying or overly scented in the room where it's burning. Further, this candle is gorgeous. I proudly display it on my built in bookcase, and because it's a soy-based wax, I can burn it on the shelf without fear of soot staining the surrounding wood. I like this candle so must that I plan to buy a few more to keep on hand in case I ever need a lost minute gift for someone -- the packaging truly is top notch and ready for gifting.
