Lavender has always been one of my favorite scents, but this candle really is a piece of work. I have the medium sized pillar candle; it's made from white wax, but has real lavender plants embedded in it. I got it as a gift, and the smell coming from the box was delicious- even before unwrapping. It's soothing, calming, yummy lavender scent is fairly strong, but not overwhelming. I've had it for over a year, and still love it and light it whenever I get the chance.
Note: I don't believe they have this actual candle for sale on the website at this moment, but when I called the customer service number, was told that it can be ordered over the phone if it's not on the website. They actual shop is located in Arvada, CO.
********* I am removing my recommendation of this candle ************ Last week, I lit this yummy smelling candle as I do most afternoons, and placed it back on the fireplace mantle. A couple of minutes later, I turned around to see that the entire candle was a fireball on top of the mantle, and was dangerously close to burning everything around it! Luckily, it was still resting on the stand that came with it, and I was able to pick it up and throw it in the sink.
Seems that the stalks of lavender that are embedded in the candle are actually a fire hazard- when the wax melts away, the stalks remain, and they caught fire.
Very scary-glad I didn't actually leave the room!
