Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This candle was beautiful. It came in a decorated paper tube in hues of blue and red. The scent name and company name were clearly displayed in the center with a large, star-like pattern. The star pattern was light blue with gold edging. The lid for the tube was blue and more heavily patterned than the base, mostly in blue. The candle vessel was a hammered shiny copper that was somewhat heavy in the hand and beautiful! A shiny copper with a gold lining. The wax was an off-white with one, well-centered wick. The wick was thin. There were no markings on the sides of the vessel. On the bottom was the typical candle warning label. This candle would be perfect for gift-giving as is. 5/5
  • Scent: This was such a pretty scent. It was delicate and distinctly floral, but not perfumey. The floral blend was intoxicating and I could pick out individual notes at various times. The ylang ylang and tuberose made the bouquet slightly sweet and extremely romantic. Tuberose can be quite heady and overpowering to me, but not so in this blend. It mixed well with the other florals and that took some of the edge off. There was also a green element to this blend. All of if it was very intoxicating, sexy, and beautiful. 5/5
  • Scent Throw: I think this candle had a moderately strong scent throw. It was really too much in the smallest (6′ x 6.5′) room. It found a great home in the 8′ x 9′ space. When I moved it to my kitchen (a large open space), it did fairly well – I could detect the candle was burning and it lightly scented that area. 4/5
  • Performance: This candle provided a very clean burn. I had a full wax melt pool in a very short period of time. I noticed no smoking or black soot. There was no wax on the sides until the candle burned about mid-way. Then there was a small rim of wax left behind. By the time the candle burned down, the sides were relatively clean. I also loved the glow inside the candle as it burned – the flame reflected well off the gold lining. I did get approximately 50 hours of burn time with this candle. 4/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Excellent customer service – fast shipping and everything arrived in good shape, very well packaged. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4.5 (Technically 4.6 but rounding down for scent throw.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.

  1. I have been everywhere looking for altru candles, I cannot find them anywhere. The scent I’m most attracted to is Purity, I am allergic to pretty much all candles, and I bought this brand at a Marshalls Store by luck!! This candle does not bother my breathing. PLEASE let me know if I can order this through you. Thank you Ginny B
