This was the first soy candle I burned, & after trying another brands soy blends, I was apprehensive. This 100% soy burned so nice, clean, isn't messy, & smells fantastic. The complex scent blending is on point. I hate the smell of bourbon, but it's not off-putting in this blending at all. I'm a fan of amber, fall type scents, & this hit the mark for me. Being my first burn, from my first ever Kringle order since bailing on the other brand, & I'm not disappointed. I'm super happy I got in on those Halloween gems.
