I got these because I thought scented matches would be cool, plus I needed something to reach wicks deep down in partly burned candles. Thick, sturdy, real easy to light (no fidgeting with fold over paper packets). The only letdown is that the smell is barely there, it's so faint that if I didn't know they were supposed to be scented I probably wouldn't notice. I got the blue (cedar, maybe?). The packaging is really pretty, and looks a lot nicer sitting on a table than a regular old book of matches, so that kind of makes up for the lack of special smell. It's probably nearly impossible to come up with a match that doesn't smell like matches though, so it's kind of expected.
