Pleasant scent, not strong enough

I received a sample of this product in the speakeasy scent, which my birchbox card described as: "A mood-setting candle with a bold scent enhanced with a hint of rum and bourbon." It definitely has a pleasant scent with just enough smoky bourbon-y wood-barrledness to it. My main complaint is that it isn't a very strong scent at all. This may be due to the fact the sample is small (about the size of a tea-light) but even in a small room with the candle right next to me I can barely smell it. It's only when the candle is unlit and I place it near my face that I can smell its yummy goodness. It would be an expensive gamble to purchase the full size version hoping for it to be strong enough. My recommendation is to stay away.

Really strong smell
Sampled

I should start by saying I am not a candle guy. This candle smelled very masculine, but was too strong for anything I would use on the occasional basis. The sample was also very small.

Pleasing scent
Sampled

The scent wasn't bad, in fact I rather enjoyed it. But I was a little turned off because the sample burned a spot on the top of my bookshelf where I had it. While that was probably my fault for not putting a plate or something under it (I did put the lid under it), it just turned me off from buying the product.

Speak easy candle
Sampled

At the time of this writing that I received one small travel size candle.

Pros:convenient size and to perhaps take to a hotel.
The wik of the candle is precut and does not require trimming
Clean burning does not put off any black smoke

Cons: I cannot speak for any of the other candles but I wish it would've been a bit more pronounced and could have been made stronger.

nice, but pricey
Sampled

Received this as a sample, and I'm assuming the burn time will only be about an hour. Sample size is VERY small. Smells great though.

Candle war
Sampled

Isn't the candle market over saturated? I don't find the scent useful and the sample is so small it lasts for 2 hours or so. I like my share of candles but stick with full size with seasonal scents to make my place more cozy and inviting for guests not seduce them with something similar to axe body spray...

Okay

Smells good, has a wick and overall meats the criteria for being a candle.

Smells great

Candle smells great, but not a candle guy. Find it a little odd that twice now the box has had candles, not very fitting to my needs at all.
