I was surprised how tiny these candles are, especially for the price. They are even smaller than votives! I have only burned one so far (Cleopatra) and during the first two-hour burn, the smell was not noticeable, even thought I was only a few feet away from the candle. During the second two-hour burn, I did notice more of a scent. For $10.00+ per candle, they are just too small, and because they are so small, the scent doesn't permeate the room as much as I would like. Also, when I opened the box, the labels were turned around backwards and sideways. For a premium item, I would expect them to be packaged perfectly, so if I gave them as a gift, they would look nice upon opening. I will not buy these again.
