How long do our candles and wax melts last? The title of this blog post is a common question we get asked all the time. I'm always conservative on the answer because it really depends on the customer. On average our candles burn for 60 plus hours. A jar of our wax melts last anywhere from one to three months based on our own testing. We burn and melt a lot though!
So I was curious what customer's thought, and have been surveying them throughout the year as they return. Results below:
Customer's who burn candles every day:
3 Weeks to Two Months
Customer's who burn candles once a week:
Three to Four Months
Customer's who burn candles a couple times a month or at random:
Six to Eight Months
Customer's who add our wax melts to their burner once a week:
One to Two Months
Customer's who add wax melts to their burner once every couple weeks:
Three to Five Months
Customer's who add our wax melts to their burners at random:
Six to Seven Months
How long does our shave whip last?
How long does our beard oil last?
If you have one of our candles from a year ago, how does it smell now?
70% said the same and 30% said they weakened. Based off of their purchases, we determined that food fragrances weakened before others. Coffee, fruit, and cologne like fragrances held up the best over time.
How would you compare the longevity of our products to other retail stores you bought similar products from?
Lasts much longer for the price: 82%
Lasts the same for the price: 13%
Didn't last as long for the price: 5%
So there you have it, the detailed answer from our customer's rather than from us! Hope that helps, and as always, thank you for continuing to support my small business!
