    Is anyone else having problems with the smell of these candles? It’s October 2020 and I bought my traditional candles for fall and they smell like burning engine oil. I’ve never had this problem before but now have three candles that smell terrible. The candles were all three different scents.

      Hi Marie, thanks for the good info,
      I was going to purchase some.

    The absolute best Main Stay candle scent is “Cactus and Aloes” . I can’t find it at any of the 3 Walmarts I have searched. Guess I’ll go to Amazon!

    I love all of these candles!! Especially the woodsy smelling ones. Wood fire apple is my favorite. I think they are strong enough, but, not overpowering. ❤️
