The fragrances were all very "dusty" smelling to me & I could not get into them

Honestly my favorite thing about the brand is the website and the beautiful creative assets! It all does a really good job at evoking imagery -- and selling the candles. The packaging was also a good experience when it arrived -- nothing too premium in terms of materials and heft, but otherwise still well thought of. Since I bought the candle blind, I have to say the fragrance was just ok. Honestly nothing too remarkable for me. However, I'm glad that they sell sample cards now to help you pick a scent. Perhaps a good starter buy for a candle and otherwise a great (online) shopping experience.

The packaging. It's simply gorgeous. Buy these candles just for that alone. Oh yeah, they also smell amazing and make amazing gifts! Thoughtful design down to the box of matches you receive when you order a candle. Also very reasonable priced!

Keep expanding the line of smells please!

Absolutely stunning packaging! The unboxing experience is top notch. Fantastic for gifts.

Feedback

The price is high for the candle alone. IMO you're paying up for the packaging and unboxing experience. Great for gifts, but not something I'd buy for myself.

I really love the packaging and the unique scents that this brand offers, however I wish you could actually SMELL them! I have had two of their candles and unless I'm right by it or have my nose over it, it simply does not feel the room... even my smalls studio apartment!

I have really loved all the Otherland candles I have purchased. I also think this makes an amazing present- I have purchased for the birthday of a tennis lover, champagne flavor for an engagement gift, a mixed holiday set for a hostess gift over the holidays and they have hit the mark every single time. The boxes are beautiful and really elevate the product experience as a whole- which helps set them apart from other candles in a pretty saturated market. The flavors tend to be a little bit softer than some other popular candle brands- but I like that- they tend to fill a room without being overwhelming. I actually even traveled with one when I was away for a few weeks and it really brought a piece of home with me! Also- love that you really can understand the flavor on the site and social through visuals and descriptions- I find this to be very innovative!

Feedback

The box says this, but you need to cut the wick so it doesn't get too long- otherwise the flame gets huge and smokey/out of control.

Great housewarming gifts! I really appreciate that the smell is on the more mellow side. Super cute jar that has a high end look and feel

Feedback

Make sure to burn correctly when you first light so that the candle melts in the right manner

Don’t walk, run to get the cardamom milk candle. It’s not one of those weak ass candles that have no scent. This candle smells like absolute heaven!!!!! Not to mention the packaging is so beautiful that I kept the box. The other scents smell good too but the cardamom milk is my absolute favorite! Perfect stocking stuffer or house warming gift 🎁

Feedback

Make cardamom milk scent into a perfume so I can rub it all over my body 😉
