I kind of like this brand. Their products are affordable and come in a lot of scents. The size I bought, net weight 3 oz., looks like the size of Yankee Candle's small jar candles. Yankee Candle's small jar candles cost $9.99 (Their net weight is 3.7 oz). Basically I paid 1/10 of what I would have paid at Yankee Candle. Since I paid a fraction of that price, I bought a couple other scents when I was in Walmart. I bought my mom one in Cranberry Mandarin (Red color and smells like Hawaiian Punch) and one in Pumpkin Spice (Dark tan color and smells really intense in the jar).

The candle I bought myself smells like Yankee Candle's Vanilla Cupcake. It smells sweet and like frosting. Mmm!

A major problem I have with these is that the fragrance isn't as powerful as I'd like! I have to burn it for an hour or so, to be able to smell the scent around the room. The ideal candle for me would emit lasting, potent fragrance immediately. These are just way too subtle for me. I'm going to have to compare these to Yankee Candle to see if theirs pack more of a punch. In this case, cheaper may not have been better.
