Dusk candles - low fragrance?

Hey,

Just curious what people think, my purchases at Dusk have been very hit and miss. I like to shop here for the leftover candles that end up with significant discounts, but I find that before much burning they lose their fragrance.

Just wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences. Candles from K-Mart have had stronger fragrance lol.

Cheers.

    Hmm. I wonder if the two might be linked.

      Well yeah fair go, but it's all stuff that would've been front shelf two months ago. Idk is shelf life on candles short?

        Candles no, wax will last forever. But the fragrances depend on complex volatiles, which as the name suggests, vaporise very easily and will fade quickly after manufacture.

    I use to love Dusk candles! I was told they were once made in Australia and now they outsourced to somewhere in China and so went their quality. Sometimes I like to splurge and spend $43 on a Glasshouse candle (probably my favourite). These are great as you can even smell it with the lid open. Light it for 15-20 mins and your room will smell great all day! However you hardly see these go on sale unless you're shopping in the Airport. I mainly use Ecoya candles, not as great as Glasshouse but they go on sale quiet often at Myers and Bed Bath Table.
