Elegant, more beautiful in person, great jars

I love these jars. They are so elegant looking and really elevate the look of my candles. Some did have a little glass bump along the rim, but it didn't effect the way the lids fit. These will for sure be my new jars.

I love these!

I love these. Yes some of my jars around the brim were not absolutely perfect but they were very very minor and next to unnoticeable.
I love the style of these jars and they have worked well for me. I intend to keep buying them. I wish they also came in amber!!!

Took getting used to, BUT LOVE EM.

I normally use a different style jar with a smaller mouth. So I was accustomed to a lot of single pouring. When I got these jars I was having a sorta tough time with one pour worthy smooth tops, but with a little trial and error and persistence I found the method that worked best for perfect top finishes with these jars. I love them. They’re my main jars for now. Wish they also came in amber with gold lids for everyone’s apothecary collections.

Uneven tops and neck

More than half of each of the three 12 pack boxes are uneven on the top so the lids don’t sit right and the necks are off. One of the boxes was a replacement due to broken glass. I’m testing jars and although I like the look of these, I can’t trust the consistency.

Excellent Vessels, but Wicking is a headache

I really wanted to give this five stars, but I have never had so much issue's wicking any of our vessels until now.
I have tried recommended Candle Science wicks to no avail, and I have tried all recommended wicks from comments , and still cant get a full melt pool.
I am using GB 464 , one oz of fragrance, and have tried Wicks ECO 14, ECO 8, CD 18
Time tested for 2 to 3 hours for melt pool.
On a positive note delivery was prompt, and all vessels were in great condition.

Love these, but they've been out of stock for months

I love these jars, but they've been out of stock for a while now and I can't find anything like them elsewhere to use in the meantime. Such a bummer! I may need to replace these unfortunately.

So Upset

I purchased these jars back in the spring and store them because of illness I had no chance to utilize them until now well I opened my box and to my surprise every last one of the jars had a defect in them not broken but a defect I was so shocked so I have wasted money and I can’t get that back. I don’t know what to do with the jars because I cannot give them to my customers with the lump in each candle rim it looks like I got them from dollar tree. I won’t be purchasing them anymore
