Disappointing candleI buy these candles by the flat - 3 at a time - as I burn candles at my work desk all day. When the candle was re-configured, the quality was cheapened; now about 20% won't burn. The wick lights and within 5 minutes the candle burns out and won't re-light. Additionally, they changed the top of the packaging to a multi-point glue that is difficult and annoying to remove. I have never noticed a scent from these candles, though they burn next to me, so they must be very lightly scented. I emailed IKEA about the issues with the candles and they agreed to send me a gift card, but didn't send the card. So - if you are buying these candles for a wedding or important event - they are inexpensive and last about 20 hours, which is a big positive. But count on issues with about 20% of them.

Not as nice as $0.79 Omtalad candle it replacedI started buying this candle when IKEA discontinued selling OMTALAD silky musk scented white candle in a glass for $0.79. While the scent of SMATREVLIG candle is ok, it is not nearly as nice as the $0.79 candle it replaced. I wish IKEA would reconsider the decision and again stock the OMTALAD musk scented candles. (I burn about 40 candles a month and need to buy the $0.79 candle).
Intense scent of vanilla with a hint of sea salt. The candle has the same beautiful color during its entire burn time, because it is colored through. When the candle has burned itself out the cup can be used as a tealight holder. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/images/products/smatrevlig-scented-candle-in-glass-beige__0498339_PE629553_S4.JPGSMÅTREVLIG Scented candle in glass, Vanilla and sea salt, naturalhttp://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30337717/303.377.17IKEA$0.79
