One of my new favorites

I'm discovering that I definitely like certain scent profiles, and Burke and Hare's incense in many of their candles is one of them. Love the Darkwave collection, and this candle burns so nicely - it has a great throw after the first couple of hours (I did notice it took a little bit to "warm up") and has a softly sweet, incense smell without being too powdery. Absolutely love it.

Not what I was expecting

This candle is amazing! I didn’t know if I was going to like it but once I smelled it I was in love. Definitely going to cherish this one for a while ❤️

Love it!

The scent is sweet, deep, and pungent! It fills the whole room and totally reminds me of the incense in church growing up….

Take me to church

If church actually smelled like this I would go and I would bring my friends. Luckily I have this candle instead. All hail Burke and Hare Co

A little too powdery and too much patchouli to actually smell like church incense (as a practicing Catholic, anyway), but good enough. No throw for the first ~hour and a half/2 hours, which was disappointing as I was using this while watching Mass from Rome, but scent grows as the candle burns, which is fine. Overall would buy again!

Outside of the candle, the packaging was nice, included a couple little extras, which I wasn't expecting! Would definitely buy other candles from this company.

Calm and Relaxing

“Cathedral” is 100% spot-on; smells exactly like an old Catholic church, in the best way. Very pleasant and relaxing scent. Bought this one once before — love it, worth it.
