This review is from: Thymes Poured Candle, Frasier Fir, 6.5-Ounce Jar (Health and Beauty)
I get these candles every year. I've purchased my fair share of candles listed as "pine" or "fir" and been very disappointed. Either the smell is unappealing or the wax burns down too quickly. What is the point of buying inexpensive candles that don't live up to expectations?
Yes, I gasped at the price for the Thyme brand. But after trying the candles, I realized I was coming out ahead. Why? Some reasons:
1. The aroma is perfect, with that freshly cut fir smell that goes with the holiday season.
2. The candle doesn't burn down quickly, giving buyers more time to enjoy the light and atmosphere.
3. You can blow out the candle and still smell the crisp, wintery scent for more than a few minutes. It lingers nicely but doesn't overpower a room.
4. It isn't necessary to burn it for long. This allows the candle - and scent - to last for the entire season. Consider purchasing two, if only to give one to a special person on your gift list).
5. The design is both tasteful and attractive, perfect for nearly any room.

This review is a breath of fresh air (pun intended) for candle lovers.
On my Christmas list it goes.

I hope you find these candles as pleasant as I do. If not, feel free to leave a comment or...of course...your own review. I not only have the candles but the air freshened, counter cleaner, etc. My spouse likes the soap and counter spray. We avoid the bar soap, though. Too rough and scratchy. Probably a great exfoliated, though, if you are into that.

I love candles, they are relaxing. Good review. I was wondering if these are organic candles?

L. Marie- I searched for an answer to your question and learned this much: first of all, none of the products are tested on animals and all of the ingredients are non- toxic, come from natural sources, and are also non- irritating. They have also been used reliably for years. This came from a company website found online. I hope this helps provide useful info for you, even though I could not get an absolute answer. I simply had to go on what I could find but I searched extensively.

I agree with you 100% on all points! I have tested so many "pine" or "fir" candles as well and this is by far the best! We have a fake tree so I really want the smell of xmas and this candle is spot on and well worth the price :)

So glad you stopped by and left your comment.
I have some candles stocked from last year. About time to get them out although i have to admit some of our Thanksgiving decorations are still in place.
Last year, we even got the Frasier fur hand soap but I am going to stick only with the candles this year, given the expense.
The diffusers seem like nice alternatives, though, to keep the house filled with a holiday aroma when we don't want to leave candles burning. The reviews of those are very positive so I'm pondering them.
