I love the way the product is packaged. I purchased two sets of candles, one for myself and one for friends who are difficult to buy for because they have everything they need. They were actually a wedding gift. They loved that people are being helped by these products

candles have a delightful scent. They make a good gift with a difference, though quite pricey, hence 4-stars
