The scent is noticeable, but not overpowering. Since the candles are soy based, they burn cleaner and usually slower, so that they last longer.
The prices are reasonable. As another reviewer noted, some are marked less than others. We learned that some candles have what they call “shadows” so they sell those for less. Once pointed out, we could see what they were talking about but that wasn’t enough to keep us from purchasing those. Maybe for a gift I would look for the “perfect” candle, but for me to use at home, the shadows are not a problem.
We met the owner, who took us into the backroom to ask our opinion on something they are working on…he was very friendly and helpful.
The ONLY problem I had in Comfort Candles was that there are so many delicious scents to choose from!
For me the scents were done beautifully, never overpowering but subtle when lit. Also a huge factor for me is when you blow out the candle and the extinguished smoke does not overwhelm the room due to the impurities/chemicals of the candle. Comfort Candle never gave me that problem.
Ever since we discovered them, we have bought directly from the company via their website. We ordered over 200 candles to give out as wedding favors in Oct 2013 and we’re still ordering the 20oz glass jars for the house. I have one lit on a daily basis and I won’t buy anything else.
*Not to mention the customer service is out of this world. Everything is made in small batches by hand so you know you can’t get that quality with big companies.
