Rated 4 out of 5 by BrightAndBeautiful Very Nice Candle!
This candle smells amazing. It's a little fruity, but not overly so. The scent really fills a space without being overly powerful. However, after it burns about 1/3 to 1/2 way down, the scent is gone. It must be poured on top and burns off quicker than the rest of the candle. Kind of a bummer, but still a nice candle.

by baw0412 Beautiful & intoxicating, but BEWARE of burn time!
REALLY love the scent of the Volcano candle. It's a little more than I normally spend on a candle, but I picked this out as part of a birthday shopping trip my husband gave me. BE ADVISED that the first burn needs to be AT LEAST 5 hours--long enough to melt the entire top evenly (not just a circle around the wick). This is supposed to have a total burn time of 87ish hours, but I definitely didn't get close to that. Mine burned straight down, leaving at least 50% of the wax in the jar. I called Capri Blue customer service and they said the first long burn is essential to getting these to burn evenly/straight down every time. I'll try again with another one of these, but at $28 a pop, they should come with a sticker or something calling that out! Disappointed in the quality but the scent is so dang intoxicating that I have to have another.

I love the Volcano candle so much; it smells so wonderful and the smell remains even after its blown out. I would never give anything below 5 stars because I love this candle so much but I will say that the wick tends to burn all the way down before all the wax is gone. It's a shame because that means wasted candle. To fix this, I purchased some wicks (very cheap - only $3 for 10) and put the candle in a pot filled with about an inch of water. I heated it until all the wax was melted and pulled out the old wick with tweezers. Then I put in a new one. While I was at it, I actually combined the melted wax of 2 candles into one. Now I have an almost full candle and lots of wicks to last forever!
