Yankee candles make great gifts and they burn a long, long time. You pay a little more up-front, but you get quality.
We did a side-by-slide comparison and tested a Yankee candle vs a cheaper drugstore look-alike and there was no comparison. The lookalike had an inferior wick that made it burn unevenly & created a “sinkhole” in the center of the candle, making it impossible to burn the entire knockoff candle properly.
Unlike Yankee candles (fragranced throughout) the lookalike candle was only fragranced on top… so in its pre-burned state, it looked fine. But once called upon to do its job, the lookalike candle fell flat.
After the candle had burned down 1”, it was evident that the remainder of the knockoff candle was just scented on the surface. The rest was just cheap, unscented colored wax. Side note: Cheap candles often contain paraffin & other chemicals, which create toxic fumes that can be very harmful, especially when breathed on a daily basis.
Yankee candles are made from safe, non-toxic materials.
Although the 2 candles were exactly the same size, the knockoff candle did not burn as bright as the Yankee candle and in fact, the knockoff’s wick made the cheap candle snuff itself out, while the Yankee candle was still going strong.
We used the entire Yankee candle ‘til all the wax was gone. It still burned bright and smelled fantastic.
