Clean, inviting fragrance

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

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.

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!

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!


Rose + Peony Amber Jar
Marilyn Cohen
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!



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. We strive to create unique and enjoyable scents, but we understand that fragrance preferences can vary. Thank you for giving our tumbler a try, and we hope you will consider trying some of our other scents in the future!

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!


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!

Candles with a Cause

I like to shop small. For a treat I often find myself wandering Whole Foods looking for small businesses that are distributing their products there.
That’s how I stumbled upon these lovely candles. I’m so happy I did.
Since that day, I always have one in the closet for a day at home treat. I have given them as gifts and every single recipient has enjoyed them. They’ve become one of my go to simple pleasures. Knowing they are American made and that a portion of my purchase goes to a worthy cause, is an added bonus. You cannot go wrong with this company.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! We are thrilled to hear that you have enjoyed our scents! We are also grateful for your support of small businesses and our cause. Thank you for being a part of our community and for being a part of our fight against human trafficking. We truly appreciate your support!


This candle is just beautiful. The scent is cozy but also clean, so you can enjoy this year round. The sweetness is not cloying. Also, the simple container is classic and minimalist which I appreciate.

Thank you for your lovely review! We are glad to hear that you are enjoying our Cedar + Tobacco. We try to make our products not too overpowering, and that includes our vessels as well so we are happy to know you are enjoying them as well! We appreciate your support and hope you continue to enjoy our products. Have a wonderful day!

It smelled great but only if you got close enough to smell it, and even then, your nose has to be touching it. I was very disappointed that it did not make my entire room smell good. A $10 Glaze candle bought at Publix would make my entire house smell good in seconds. I will not be buying these candles, again. Too expensive, too small for what they are. Cute black design, but that’s about it.

Hi Saul! Sorry that the scent did not meet your expectations and we appreciate your feedback. Our candles are designed to give a subtle and long-lasting scent, rather than an overpowering one. We understand that scent preferences can vary and we will take your feedback into consideration for future products. Thank you for giving us a try and we hope to have the opportunity to provide you with a better experience in the future. I will send you an email to hopefully make thing right!

The best floral scent I’ve ever smelled

Calyan has created another winner. I don’t usually like scents with floral notes as they are often overpowering and artificial smelling, but I love Calyan Wax Co’s candles so I took a gamble and was not disappointed. This is the perfect balance of light rose and peony notes, mixed with a bit of subtle musk. It leaves a light lingering scent in the room, evoking a sense of calm and delight. It has quickly become my favorite candle. I got the Amber jar, which is perfect for a bedroom and plan to purchase the three wick for my larger living room space. 10/10 would highly recommend.

My Favorite Candle Scent!

I loved so much during Christmastime that I decided I need to smell it ALL YEAR LONG. I love that these candles are clean and safe and OH SO YUMMY! :)

Hi Jill! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are thrilled to hear that our Mini Evergreen + Eucalyptus Amber Jar has become your favorite candle scent! We completely understand wanting to smell it all year long - it's just that good! Happy candle burning!

I purchased 5 small candies in the amber jars. They arrived fast and were very well packaged. I have only tried this one so far but LOVE it! I love its all natural ingredients and the mission behind this wonderful company. Thank you!

Thank you for your kind words and for supporting our mission! We're delighted to hear that you're enjoying our candles. Thank you for choosing us!

New Signature Scent

I was first gifted this candle for my birthday and have since placed two more orders to restock. It is officially my home's "signature scent." Its very light and fresh - perfect for spring. I love burning it in our kitchen, bathrooms and entryway when guests arrive. I have been buying Calyan Wax Co. candles for several years now and absolutely love them. The dual wick is a game changer - even burning and no wasted wax. Highly recommend!

Thank you so much for your glowing review! We are thrilled to hear that our Lemon + Sage Glass Tumbler Soy Candle has become your home's signature scent. We take pride in creating light and fresh scents perfect for any season! Thanks again!

One of the best holiday scents I've ever gotten

I bought a Fir & Clove candle at a local store, and since then have gone back for three more. This is genuinely the best candle I've ever gotten for holiday time (and beyond). Most candle makers can't quite get "fir" right — it often smells like cleanser — but this one is absolutely perfect. The clove adds something amazing, and after you burn it for a few hours there's almost an incense aroma to the room. This candle is like a combination of deep forest, hot cider, a cozy fire, and a church all in one. Sorry for being long-winded, but I love it so much. I'm so happy to have discovered the Calyan brand.

What a fantastic review, Susanna!
This is to great to hear that you have loved this candle so much! Thank you for sharing!
Keep enjoying and reach out if you ever need anything.

Not much throw

I wanted to love the candle as I have been searching for good clean candles made in the US. I purchased 2 on Amazon but there was no throw and could only smell it when I was right over the top of it. Maybe the 3 wick has more of a throw. Unfortunately I’ll be returning the 2nd candle.
