I got this candle in Sugar Rush because I love scented candles, and regarded the charm as merely a bonus. First of all, I can only smell it if I am within one foot of it. Very, very lightly scented. No throw whatsoever. The charm I got was a horseshoe that came on what is basically a piece of green sewing thread. It's "adjustable" but I am very afraid of ripping it because it's so flimsy. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.
