Home Trends has a line of various sizes of fragrance candles. The candle I purchased was Black Cherry fragrance -- it's 11.5 ounces and has 3 wicks in it. It comes in a sturdy thick glass container and the wax is about 2 inches high.

The candle burns well and evenly. The instructions advise not to burn longer than 4 hours at any one time and to trim the wick to reduce sooting, and while I've not burned it longer than 3 hours at a time, I've never had any problem with sooting and I've never trimmed the wicks. If you let the wax solidify after an extended period of usage, this candle should last for well over 30 hours.

It comes with a top covering, which is nice to keep dust and dirt out of it, but it's plastic and definitely not intended to be used while the candle is lit. The glass doesn't heat up, and as such immediately after usage the top can be replaced.

The fragrance is very strong and if you like cherries it's definitely for you, but in a small room at the end of several hours it can be a bit overwhelming. The smell stays for quite a long time, and is pleasant.

A relatively inexpensive candle that can be used regularly for weeks, this is a good addition to any decent sized area that needs a little spicing up.
