They say these votive candles burn for up to ten hours. Ummm.. in what world? I burned mine for 3hrs, no draft, they were 80% gone. I would say these may burn for 4 hours tops, definitely not a super long burning candle. The price was decent for the quantity I purchased, but that probably it's best perk. Shame, they arent close to what the post states. I was a bit sceptical, as I should've been.
I bought these candles because they were cheap and black. The color matches my decor. What I didn’t plan on was the smell. I guess the manufacturer’s wanted to match the color with a scent because these candles smell just like motor oil! Something I’m sure no one wants their home to smell like. Plus, when you pick up one of these from the box the wick slides right out the bottom. Now I have 100 smelly candles. Maybe I will stop off at my mechanics and he can use them around the shop? Do not waste your money.
They burn 3 hours at most, when they burn, because the wicks are so thin they burn off in a few minutes, and you have to light it again--IF you can. Some of the candles have split in half. The wax is not normal--it's powdery, grainy, makes a big mess and breaks. The box the candles came in was ripped in several places, releasing all that white powder everywhere. Extremely disappointed. I'm returning this item.
I love candles! When I could no longer purchase the candles I normally bought, due to the closing of that particular business, I was in search of another quality candle. I purchased this product and am very disappointed in the quality. The candles burn unevenly and burn straight down the middle, leaving most of the wax hardened on the sides....or the wick sinks into the wax and extinguishes the flame. So in no way do these burn for the amount of time stated. I have a 4 candle votive holder and after the first 4 candles burned poorly I tried 4 more, moved the holder to a different location, hoping these would burn better. They didn't. I would never buy these again and do not recommend them at all......not even in a pinch. Such a disappointment.
I ordered these to use in a neighborhood Christmas Eve luminary lighting. When we prepared the bags for distribution, we discovered that many of the candles were broken in the box. I did not have time to reorder. We had to go to stores (COVID) to search for replacements. These candles are obviously of poor quality.
all 72 of the 8 hour candles were broken and scattered in the box sent to me...long time customer with them over 5 years...bad scene...72 not 36 candles sorry for the mistake!!! ORDERED CLOSE TO 20 FROM YOU FOLKS...Check your records..How bout just sending me a replacement..that would resolve the problem..would be nice... Thanks
Half of them arrived melted. None of them burn very well at all. The only reason I'm not returning them is because it's not worth my time and energy for something that cost so little. I should have known better: you get what you pay for.
Candles would not stay lit without pouring off the wax. When they were lit, they gave off very little light/glow. After two attempts to use these in my votive holder, I gave up and sent them back. I'd rather pay more money for something that actually does the job it's intended to do.
I bought these candles last year for my wedding and loved them. I had maybe 3 votives in the box that were "lemons " and did not burn properly and ended up throwing out. The second box I bought a couple weeks ago was terrible. At least 25% of the votives were faulty and did not burn properly. It looks like the holes in those votives were too big and the wick kept falling through. I had to just throw them away. Very disappointed and will not buy again. Terrible quality control.
