Default What is Important?

When looking for candles what is important to you:

Where they are made?

What the wax is made of?

What the wick is made?

Burn Time?

Strength of the Scent?

When buying candles the most important thing to me is strong scents, great scent throw, and burn times. That is why I love Gold Canyon so much. They have all 3 of my must haves in a candle

From a consumer--- a strong scent and how long it lasts are high factors for me when I'm looking at candles to purchase. Especially if it smells like food

All of the above! Lol If I had to choose only a few, I'd say how long it lasts and how safe it is. I live in Ca with a toddler and earthquakes!

1. Strength of scent and that the scent throw lasts to the bottom of the candle.

Red face burning candles

I would also have to say: All of the above! I think that's probably what everyone looks for. A good quality candle at an affordable price. That's why I love Eclipse Candle Co. We provide all of that and more. We go above and beyond in quality and safety of our wax blend. Our fragrances are nice and strong whether you go wick or wickless and the hot throws are amazing

I always wanted a good scent throw #1. I mean, I don't burn candles just for LIGHT kwim?

After that, price is a factor as well as what it is made of ( LOVE PALM and SOY or blends)

I'm no longer in the candle biz so now I feel free to burn all different brands!

Safety first, NO FIRE in my home and then quality. So Scentsy was the only real choice.

Thumbs up

I look for quality, long burn time, true to the name scent as well as safe for my home and environment. This is why I LOVE For Every Home cause we have all this and more. I can choose between burning my candle or putting it on the multipurpose warmer to warm the candle. We now have soy/coconut blend candles and cubes which is even more environmentally safe and burns/warm longer! FEH is the only candle products I have in my home now.
