    Promising review: "The Farmhouse Streusel scent is divine. Smells of REAL apples and cinnamon. The scent is softer than I like, not much throw for the candle or wax melt but when you get up close and take a sniff the smell is perfection. No artificial smells at all. Would like to see this scent only amplified. Love the packaging. Would repurchase this scent. Already placed my second order with this company to try out other scents. So far the candle is burning longer than I thought it would for size. Actually on par or even lasting longer than the three-wick candles from the big-box store. Love the soy and wood wick." —Carrie Webster
