Use

These candles are filled with aromatic delight. From the moment that I opened the clear covered container, I knew they were going to be a wonderful treat. I literally can just sit a candle in a room, not even light it, and when I return to that room I can smell the heavenly aromas. In addition, unlike other candles I have had in the past, this one gives off a pretty scent while burning.

I am sure you have had candles before that smelt good in the store, but when you put a flame on them you smell nothing in the room. Then when you blow it out you get a whiff of the scent you purchased. Discouraging isn't it? Well that is not the case with these candles. I do not know how long they will last. However, I can say this; I received them in the mail about 3 weeks ago. I have had the same candle sitting out in the bathroom of all places for all that time.

If you knew my husband, you would know that most fragrances do not help after he has been in there. Well here it is three weeks later and this little candle is still putting out a brilliant scent. (OK, right after he has been in there nothing works. But give it a few minutes and the candle has won). If you are looking for a relaxing afternoon with a good book or a soak in the tub, I highly recommend these Faerie lights.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Each of these candles are about one and a half inches square. They come in four delightful pastel colors. They burn at about the same rate as most candles. Not real slow, however not too fast either. They do require a platform to sit on as they, like most candles, will drip wax after a while of burning.

Taste / Aroma

As mentioned before the smell of these candles is outstanding. I might want to say they are not overbearing. In the paragraph above I may have made them sound like they were overpowering. They are not. They add a very delicate scent to the air. you know its there and enjoy it, but it doe not drive you from the room.

Performance

These little candles I believe will last you for a long long time. I have lit and re-lit the same candle now several times over the last three weeks. I sit in the tub and enjoy the relaxing moments alone. Then when I get out I blow it out. I am probably in there for about 15 minutes at a time. After three weeks of this I still have the same candle and only a small portion of it has burnt away.

Packaging

The packaging was very pretty. It came in a cardboard bottom box with a clear plastic cover to allow me to see each of the candles without opening int.
Follow-up commentary
I pulled these candles out and used them again the other day. They still after all this time have that wonderful aroma. WOW that is a wonder in itself.

    So.. what is the scent? Are all candles the same scent?

    Adriana; No they are not all the same scent, but they are all very close in scent. They are sort of a floral type smell to them. Nothing earthy, more like and exotic flowery smell if that helps...
