This review may be a little premature given I only poured my candles three days ago. So bear in mind when reading this that I can't speak to the hot throw just yet. I bought this on a whim because I made candles in a workshop once and loved it. I was a little surprised when I got the kit that all you needed to do was microwave the wax rather than heat it on the stove. On one hand, that makes it very convenient and easy. On the other hand, for me, it felt a little too easy. However, I do see the benefit of this simple method for people who have never made candles before, and I appreciate being able to create something lovely in just four or five minutes.
I ended up purchasing additional fragrances because I knew I'd be making more candles after this kit was complete, so I ended up using Apple Harvest and Pumpkin Chai for my kit candles. Both smelled incredible upon pouring, and our entire home smelled like autumn when we woke up the next morning. The candles are currently curing on our bookshelf, and we're giving them a few weeks before burning, but the cold throw is just delightful. You can't help but smile when you catch a whiff of the candles!
The only other shortcoming I noticed was that one of my candle tins was dented along the rim. It doesn't impact how the lid sits on the base, but this would be a downfall if I planned on gifting the candles to someone else.
