      When companies cut costs to keep the price the same, either the quality or the quantity invariably suffer. When a company increases the prices as well as reducing the quality they embark on the road to ruin... For both the brand and the product.

      Problem is that not every customer will accept the same measures... And when all is said and done, we really just want the same high quality, at the same price for the same quantity.




      The brands will always disappoint some of their customers and alienate some with the decisions they make.

      Totally agree with that. I only buy tarts. When I first started buying votives back in the day they were the best value and best scent, then they changed and I sent so many back as they smelled of zilch. I get two tealights worth of scent out of each tart and you can get ten for a tenner on fleabay. Candles are my indulgence and I know a relative waste of money but a tenner at a time isn't out of my price range. Bought a small jar candle a while back and although you could smell it, it was too faint for me. Not worth the money.

      I think Yankee are good, but for me personally, I only ever buy melts - not from Q but either from Yankee themselves or from other online stores -they're just as cheap and cheaper. They sell them in my local garden centre and they work out at around 1.25 each so you can pay 99p online, depending on scent and sale prices, plus you get credits i.e. points if you buy from Yankee. I buy them because for me they're more fragrant than the other options, and I also know that if I forget to put them out, the little tea lights will go out on their own anyway.

      I'm in the US at the minute on holiday & have bought my Mum some YC Red Berry & Cedar as a thank-you for looking after my cats (this is her favourite & retired in the UK).





      I got her a medium jar for $8, two packs of tealights for $5 each and six votives & six melts for $10. That's just short of $30 (including their local tax) for a '37 piece set' (as QVC would say), which is around 24. Bargain.

      It's so much cheaper here & there is way more choice.

      Well done on the bargain hunt. Don't you just hate it when they add sales tax on at the till?! I much prefer our inclusive pricing, you know where you are then, lol.

      I hope you are having a lovely time in the US.
      Thanks warwa100, boffy thanked for this post

As well as the names you give, I like to check out Rhys Candles and Temptation Gifts. A parcel of mine did not come on the allotted day and TG were absolutely fantastic in the way they dealt with it. (Someone rang the courier company and sorted it out whilst I was still speaking and giving all my details to their rep. So when I paused for breath she came on the line and told me what had happened and what she was trying to do. It turned up a couple of hours later. Can you imagine that with Q???)

      I bought a load of Price's tea lights from Robert Dyas last year too - I think the big bags were 3 for the price of 2 so it worked out pretty reasonable. Like you, I find they last a good 5 hours and I really don't see they are any different (apart from in price) to the Yankees that they try to tell us on QVC we must use in our melt warmers.

      I'll be interested to see what the TSV is, and the price, because the standard for 3 large jars on QVC is now 50 + 5.96 postage - if they are going to top that price it will have to be for USA exclusives as it's easy to find all of the UK large jars on ebay for 16.99 and free postage.
      The prices do seem inconsistent but you are certainly lucky if your local shop sells them at 19.99 "full price" still. Is that current ranges?

      Conversely, I noticed last week in Boots, they had already increased the shelf price of the large jars to 23.99. It really annoys me as it's the same fairly limited range that they stock (although they are gradually improving the choice) - Vanilla Cupcake, Vanilla Lime, Black Coconut, Black Cherry ... and I really don't believe they are all brand new stock so they wouldn't have paid the increased wholesale price for those on the shelves already.
