I got this originally as a gift from a boyfriend's mother one year, and honestly I loved this. It smells soooooo good, the ONLY thing is the melted wax is very ... oily? Me being clumsy me, I've spilled it with the wax melted twice and it is really hard to get out, and leaves 'oil' stains. That being said, these candles aren't *meant* to be spilled, so I wouldn't say that detracts from the value, just be careful. Seriously this candle lasted me for years because after 10 min of burning the whole room smells incredible for hours. SO worth the money.
