Rated 2 out of 5 by Michellek500 Great smell, poor quality
I truly love the smell of this candle. The Body Shop has done a wonderful job of creating a relaxing, peaceful, clean scent. With that said, however, I won't be buying these in the future, nor would I recommend them to a friend. First, the glass in which the candle is placed is extremely thin, and seems to be of poor quality. The first candle I ordered broke into a million pieces during shipping, and I thought it was due to the rough treatment it may have encountered on the road. However, I found that the second one I had broke extremely easily at home, just the same, without the shipping process to blame it on. In addition, the wick ran out when there was still a good 1/2" - 3/4" of wax left surrounding it. I am meticulous about burning a candle this wide for hours at a time, so as not to allow the wax to burn in the center of the candle only, so that wasn't the issue. Overall, I would recommend going with the Aloe & Soft Linen oil diffuser instead of this candle: much sturdier glass, same great scent, and a better value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LOLfromDBQ different this year
I have bought 12 of these candles in the past 3 years -- and have a set of glasses to prove it! I love the scent -- and still do. This year, however, the candle seems to burn differently. It burns down the middle leaving a lot of that great wax unmelted and doesn't last as long. I guess I will keep buying it because the scent is wonderful and not obnoxious like so many other candles. But I miss the candle of yore!

Rated 1 out of 5 by sarahmg the smell of this candle is great. it's super fresh and clean smelling, really nice for a bathroom. problem is that it burns straight down the middle of the candle rather than melting all of the wax, resulting in a lot less burn time--it's just not worth the money. I'm not sure if it's because the glass is poor quality and super thin? I wrapped the candle in tin foil and that did help slow the burn time by melting more of the wax on the sides but it isn't very pretty to look at. do not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mrage Does not burn well
I have bought this candle for years. Love the scent. The quality has changed. This candle burns poorly. It burns too quickly, into a whole. In the past most of the wax was used. Now most of the wax remains after the wick has burned down. Too bad. It was a fantastic product. Now I would not recommend anyone waste their money on this product.
