Absolute favorite fragrance!

I was excited to get this size candle because I love the heavy vessel it comes in, and Oak Moss & Amber is my favorite Calyan fragrance. I have burned MANY Calyan candles, and love them. But this size specifically had several issues while burning. I never got an even burn, wax was left on the sides. Even after 4 hours of burn time, it still struggled. It took me 3 times of 4 hour burning, and pushing wax off the sides, to finally get my burn even. I bought 2, but have only burned 1, so maybe it was a dud. But going forward, I will stick to the regular 3 wick or the 2 wick size.

A Keeper!

Sweet and vibrant, this candle is the perfect summer scent! I hope it comes back every year!

Thank you for your review! We are so glad to hear that our Watermelon + Prickly Pear was a hit for you. We also love it is perfect for the summer and currently plan on bringing it back next year!

Favorite candle of all time

I bought this candle on vacation in Colorado and absolutely loved it. Made it a point to see if they had online sales and I'm so happy they do! Stocked up on a few. The scent is incredible. Light yet earthy and very unique.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We're thrilled to hear that we are in your all time favorites! Happy that you were able to find us online too! We appreciate your support and hope you continue to enjoy our candles!

Love the Watermelon Pear Candle

I was hoping the scent would not be too "watermelonish," and of course it is not because Calyan always strikes the perfect balance. I gave two of these as gifts and I think I brought new fans to your fold.

Thank you for your kind words! We're thrilled to hear that you love the scent and that it exceeded your expectations. Watermelon has been a hit!

Wonderful as always

I’ve placed several rather large orders and have been pleased with each and every one. Great products and superb customer service.

Thank you for your kind words and continued support! We're happy to hear that you have been pleased with our candle and customer service! We appreciate the review and look forward to serving you again in the future. Have a wonderful day!

The Scent Discovery Kit is such a great idea! I'd purchased a few holiday candles that I loved, but was having trouble deciding on some new scents for summer (I am deeply indecisive), so this was the perfect way to test them out before buying a full-size candle! And it's been fun to light a new candle every day. Definitely recommend this kit!

Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Scent Discovery Kit! We are so glad to hear that it was helpful for you in choosing new summer scents. We love the idea of trying out different candles every day - it's like a mini spa experience at home!

Texas Favorite

I purchased Texas bluebonnet for my sister, She lives in Texas and loves bluebonnets blooming in the fields. She was not familiar with Caylan so I knew candle was a perfect gift for her. After enjoying the soft sweet fragrance of Bluebonnet candle, she is a fan too.

We're so glad to hear that your sister loved the scent. We hope she continues to enjoy our candles and becomes a fan of Caylan as well.

Great scent!

First of all, this candle smells amazing before you even light it. I put it in my kitchen and didn't light it for a few days... smelled up my entire kitchen. When I started burning the candle, the scent was strong, but not overwhelming. The soy wax melted evenly and I never "lost a wick" in the candle as I do with some others. I really love these candles!!

Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for our Lavender + Bergamot Glass Tumbler. We're thrilled to hear that you're enjoying the scent and that it filled your kitchen even before lighting it! Thank you for your support and we hope to continue providing you with great smells!

Amazing scent!!!

I just bought a few of the Caylan candles and this is the first one I'm burning. The smell is out of this world!! I put in on a table in my foyer and have only burned it twice, but even just sitting in the foyer you smell the candle when you walk in. So far, everyone who has come over to visit comment on the smell of this candle. I can't wait to burn the other scents (which also smell wonderful before you even burn them).

Hi there! Thank you so much for your kind review. We're thrilled to hear that you're enjoying the Sea Mist + Freesia Glass Tumbler and that it's filling your foyer with its amazing scent. We hope you continue to love all the other scents as well. Have a great day!

Lavender + Bergamot - my favorite scents

The reason this beautiful scent got 4 stars rather than 5 is because as beautiful as it is, it seems to dissipate rapidly and require many sprays, many times in order to keep the fragrance active.

Hi there! Thank you for your review and for sharing your love for our Lavender + Bergamot Room Spray. We're happy to hear that it's one of your favorite scents. We apologize for any inconvenience with the scent dissipating quickly. We'll definitely take note of this and work on improving the longevity of our fragrance. Thank you for your feedback!

I love these candles!

Calyan candles are superior to many other brands I have used. Besides the wonderful smells, they burn cleanly and evenly. And the containers are simple and lovely. I particularly appreciate the bergamot and lavender ones because I find they really induce relaxation; I burn one every night before I go to sleep. Plus, the service at Calyan is fantastic. One candle recently arrived broken; I called Calyan, and a replacement was sent out the same day. I have recently decided that I'm not even bothering with other candle brands because I love Calyan so much.

Thank you so much for your kind words! We are happy to hear that you love our fragrances and that they have been helping you relax. Thank you for your support and we hope you continue to enjoy our candles. Have a wonderful day!

Candle has powder-like after scent

I'm a fan of Calyan candles, started using 2 of their candles during last fall and the scents were dreamy! I was excited to use this candle, but after it was burning for a few minutes - it emitted a powder-like smell that led me to keep on sneezing. I went back to Whole Foods and sniffed their other "Spring" candles and found that they all had a powder-like undertone. So I don't know how these new scents were formulated, but sadly I can't seem to tolerate them bc of this powder-like smell.

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We're sorry to hear that the scent did not meet your expectations and caused discomfort. The scents smell different for different noses sometimes. Our team is always working to improve our scents and we appreciate your feedback.
If you ever have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us!

Clean, inviting fragrance

This candle was gifted to me as a house warming present and quickly became my favorite thing about my new house.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are so happy to hear that Lemon + Sage Glass is now your favorite part of your new home. We strive to create clean and inviting fragrances, and we are glad to know that you are enjoying this one!

Best candles ever!!

I bought a small jar candle at a boutique shop and loved it so much, that I went to the website for more. My faves so far are evergreen & eucalyptus and vetiver & Tonka. I bought the three wick and let me tell you, you can smell it in the whole house, even my sister couldn't believe how fragrant it is. But the thing that really made me love these candles are how absolutely clean they burn, I've never seen candles burn so clean. I'm in love.

Hi Laura! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We are thrilled to hear that you are enjoying Evergreen + Eucalyptus! It's a favorite here at the shop as well! Thank you for your support and we hope to see you again soon!

Love the brand, but not a fan of this scent

I bought this in the hopes of having a more grapefruit forward scent, but this is too floral and just one I don't enjoy. It's kind of the bummer about buying candles online, you really can't tell from the names and notes if it will mesh with your preferences. I'm sure i can return, but it's such a hassle so I'll probably give to a friend. Will definitely stick to my tried and true favorites from Calyan, and not purchase without smelling in person first...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Grapefruit + Flora! We're sorry to hear that the scent wasn't what you were hoping for. We completely understand how frustrating it can be when scents don't align with our preferences. We appreciate your feedback! Thank you for your loyalty to Calyan and we hope you continue to enjoy our other scents. Have a great day!

Perfect for summer

Bought this to have on hand once the summer months arrive. Love this scent, it's an immediate beachy vibe.

Thank you for your review! Pineapple + Coconut is the perfect scent for those summer months!

- Dawson

Love this scent

I'm a big fan of this candle. Love the darker glass and the fact that there is a lid for after the candle is snuffed out. The scent is wonderful; fresh and clean. Highly recommend!

Thank you for your review! We're thrilled to hear that you love the Seaside + Citrus Matte! Also glad you are enjoying the lids! We hope you continue to enjoy the fresh and clean scent. Thank you for recommendation!

My Favorite Scent

In November of 2023, I began using Calyan Wax Company's amber jar candles every day in my office. I respect their purity, love their presentation and respect their mission.

At this point I've tried a few scents. Rose & Peony is my very favorite. Thank you, Calyan Wax, for bringing light to a dark world. We are grateful and happy to support your mission to stop human trafficking!

Thank you so much for your kind words and for sharing your experience with our Rose + Peony! It has been a hit! We are thrilled to hear that it has become your favorite scent and that you are part of our mission. We are grateful for your support in our efforts to end human trafficking!

Unsure

Not great. Not horrible. it kind of smells like a department store, a pleasing one at that. Yet still a department store. Would not but again

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on our Cedar + Tobacco! We really appreiate the time taken. We're sorry to hear that the scent was not to your liking.

Forever Fan

In 25 years my husband has never said he wanted to get a specific candle or that he cared for me to repurchase a specific scent. We were in a shop while on vacation when we smelled this and he requested to bring one home. We promptly bought five more. Such a clean and classic scent. Not overwhelming at all. No floral or citrus to power over everything else. You simply think “this smells so good”.

Hi Sunny! Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind review for our Cedar + Tobacco candle. We are delighted to hear that you and your husband are both fans of the scent and that it has become a staple in your home. We appreciate your support and look forward to hopefully providing you with more favorites!

-Dawson

Oakmoss + Amber is my favorite!

Oakmoss + Amber is my favorite Calyan fragrance. It’s a fresh, woodsy fragrance that makes an impression without being too strong. I also love the updated black jars with lids. These candles are very classy looking, and work great as gifts. Although I usually buy directly from Calyan, I’m pretty sure this style Oakmoss + Amber candle is packaged as Earth + Forager at Whole Foods. If it’s not the same fragrance, it’s very similar.

Thank you so much for leaving such a lovely review! We're thrilled to hear that it's your favorite Calyan fragrance and that you are liking the new lidded vessels. They have been a hit! Thank you for supporting our brand! We appreciate you!

My FAVORITE Calyan fragrance!

As my title states, Oakmoss + Amber is my favorite fragrance Calyan sells. It’s a fresh, woodsy fragrance. I burn this candle year round, but I could see people prefer it more in the Fall/Winter months. This fragrance has a good throw without being too strong. As a guy, I’d wear this as a cologne. Also, I wish this was available in a room spray so I could take it on the go.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! Oakmoss is a shop favorite as well! We do have more scents in the works for our Room Sprays so keep an eye out!

Love this fragrance!

Strong enough to be able to enjoy without being overwhelming.

Thank you for your positive review! We're glad to hear that you are loving Desert + Agave! We try to create scents that are strong enough to enjoy, without being overwhelming. Thank you for your support!

Nothing I expected

This candle is so warm and relaxing. I think I expected one scent to over power the other but it was a perfect balance of both. My husband is very picky about scents and this was a hit!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad to hear that it exceeded your expectations. And are thrilled that it was a hit with your husband as well!
