This is a great candle. So far it's lasting very well, especially for the price, and the scent is fruity but not girlie so my husband is enjoying as well. The candle holder is very attractive and it burns well, without creating smoke or overly-large flames. I do have to trim the wick after use with scissors. The candle is powerfully scented enough so that when my mom came to visit the other day she actually said "your house doesn't smell like dogs!" which is a miracle as far as we're concerned... will definitely purchase this one again and try the other fragrances as well.
