The jars themselves are pretty and fairly sturdy, but the glass isn’t blown evenly on the inside. This can lead the candles to looking lopsided when looked at head on and even encouraged separation between the glass and the wax. I’d give it a 5 star if they could straighten it.

The reason these jars do not get a 5-star review is because when I recieved the package, two of the jars were shattered. Due to my deadline I went ahead and used the remaining 10 jars. The jars are sturdy and look expensive, but just weren't packed the best which is why I assume two of the jars came to me broken. I still do recommend for candle making.
Hi there! Thanks so much for giving us the chance to take care of this for you!
Love these glasses but having trouble wicking it I use 464 soy wax and I've tried cd18 cd22 + Eco 14
I love the jars , they were not packed well, I could hear them bumping around when I unpacked it 1 was broken, not sure hoe to be compensated for that . Please contact me CS , Other than that fast shipping and I’m always satisfied with CS
Hi! We'll be reaching out to you shortly!
I have not received my jars yet, because I literally ordered them 10 minutes ago, and they have shipped already. That’s crazy fast!
I ordered 36 status jars and several of them arrived broken on a Saturday. I sent a message to CS. The next business day (Monday) I went to contact CS and noticed that they had already sent out a case of status jars. More than what was broken. CANDLE SCIENCE IS AWESOME!
I melted the wax out of the jars and it was the wax giving the cracked appearance. So these are nice jars.
I love the jars. I made 1 candle and after my candle set it was fine. Checked on the candle a few days later and there are cracks in the glass. I have not dropped the candle or anything. Not sure if I got a defective batch but scared to sell to customers due to it might get cracks in the glass once they receive it.
Hello,please help me,What size wick would I need for these jar, I'm using Golden Brands 464, 12% FO,and Liquid Candle Dye. Thank you.
The jars are very nice, wicks are great, I can't find lids😢😥
Although these glass jars come with lopsided insides that's visible to the eye, especially when wax gets poured (bummer)--I still love them due to the look. I was wondering what is the best wick for the jars? I use C-6 coco-soy wax. Thanks for any tips.
Hi there! Thank you so much for leaving a review. Our Support Team has reached out to you via email with some helpful tips!
This was my first purchase from CS and I can definitely see why they are a top supplier in candle groups.
The jars are beautiful and solid. Haven’t used them yet but shipping was super quick.
Just placed another order for FO
These jars look great and are best sellers for my company. I use GB 464 with CD 22 wicks and the bronze flat lid. I get 10 oz in the jars and they are full!
I love the look of these jars. Would like to use double wicks with these jars. I’m using 464 which wicks should i try? Thanks
The jars are uneven on the inside in the bottom. All of the insides on these jars are slanted slightly
Having trouble wicking with GW 444, any suggestions?
I love these jars very thick glass and classy. Does the Kraft box work with these jars?
Hi! Unfortunately, we do not carry any boxes that fit these containers.
I love this candle i am currently using the LX wick and its not burning well , which wick size do you recommend for parafin comfort blend
Love these jars. I am now using C3 Wax. Would ECO 14 be a good starting point for testing. 8% Fragrance load.
Love the look of the glasses and very new to candle making. I'm having trouble with wicking my coco83 wax and have only tried CD10 AND CD12. Any suggestions?
Sturdy thick jars. I use them for a specific candle line of mine and they are absolutely perfect. The status lids are also phenomenal. Great for large detailed/complex labels as well.
I use these jars all the time, I love them and I use soy wax & eco wick 10 6" and have perfect burns.
I think this is an attractive, classy jar for candles. Not having the tops designed for screw-on lids elevates the appearance over many other jars, and the extra glass on the bottom contributes to a sturdy, elegant look. I finished off with the silver flat lids.
These were packed well and arrived in perfect condition.
I can fit 10 oz (9 wax, 1 fragrance oil), but it's *very* full.
Love the jars, however, having a little trouble with the wick size. What is your recommendation of wick size for Golden Brands 464?
Hi! Typically, we'd recommend starting with a CD 18 or an ECO 14 for testing with the 464 wax. Depending on your particular recipe, however, you may need to wick up or down a size. If you'd like to tell us a bit more about your materials and process, we'd be happy to troubleshoot further at email@example.com!
I’m using 6006/soy blend which wix do you recommend?
Hi! We would recommend starting your testing with the ECO 8 wick. You may need to adjust from there so be sure to start with a small batch test. Moving forward, our wick guide is always a great resource for selecting a wick to start testing with. You can find it here: https://www.candlescience.com/learning/wick-guide.
I’m using IG 6006 what kind of wick do you recommend?
Hi! For the 6006 wax and the 12oz status jar, we'd typically recommend starting testing with an ECO 8 wick. Please feel free to reach out to our support team with any specific questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org!
These are exactly as described and are great for candles. I am very satisfied and my customers have been as well.
I purchase 5 cases of these jars, 1 case came damage can you please put fragile labels all over these boxes please to avoid them from being toss around. All of your products are excellent very quick and prompt service.
Hi! We are sorry that you had some damaged glassware. Our support team will be in touch soon.
My order arrived in perfect condition. I couldn’t find any flaws in the glassware if I tried. Combined these jars with the bronze flat lid for a classic look. I also like the fact these jars hold a pretty perfect 8 oz of wax. East to center/place the wicks in the bottom of the jar. Very pleased with CandleScience as a whole!
I really like to use these and my customers love them! I can do so much with them.,For example, I can leave them plain or with a great label, depending
on what event show I am doing and the theme of that show. The customers like the style and fits very well with any home decor!
Jars and Lids fit snugly with no manufacturing flaws. Everything worked out fine for me, unlike other customers who were not so lucky. Sounds like a refund is due in those cases.
Like Allison below me, be careful. These lids DO NOT FIT and I have since begun buying my 12oz's from another vendor. Candle Science NEEDS to get the squared away, til then, my money is going to somebody who can give me lids that fit.
I really like these jars. I switched over to them from the apothecary jars for a more upscale look. Only issue I have is the flat glass lids that are supposed to fit them don't always fit. Not sure if it's a problem with the jars or a problem with the lids. However due to this, I have to sell some of them at a discount due to not having a lid and cannot use them in my retail stores at all without the lids which is a problem.
I used these with GB 464 and ECO 16 or ECO 14 with no dye. Burns evenly the whole way down.
I love the look of these jars. I did have a hard time finding the right wick and tested several different brands and sizes. I'm now using (2) Eco 4 wicks with IGI6006 wax. It burns exactly the way I want it to. Very happy.
Love this container.
I did my test with one HTP 126 and burned for over 5 hours and it never went to a complete pool.
Second test I inserted (2) HTP 105 and did test within 35 mins had a complete wax pool leaving the sides clean and a great scent.
Will purchase more....Don't forget the glass flat tops..
This 'status jar' really elevates the appearance of my finished product. The shape is modern and classy and perfect for wrapping my candle labels around. The 'flared' bottom really adds a distinguishing touch!
I love these jars, very simple, sleek and stylish. Great weight to them and will definitely buy them again, if I can find a wick that burns correctly.
I just ordered 7 cases of these containers and I absolutely love them! They give my container candles such a stylish look, they are going to look incredible in my new shop!
