Great- But not perfect!
The candle smells fresh and sweet (like the perfume). It also comes in an aesthetic and reusable jar. However, the wax burns very unevenly, so I've had to scrape around the sides to make the most of the candle. A great candle- but some improvements are necessary to warrant the price.

I love the Melrose Place scent, so Ouai brought out candles in this scent, I jumped to purchase it. When I received the item from Space NK, I was so impressed by the gorgeous vessel and how it filled up the box with the scent. But that's all the nice things I have to say about this candle. I could barely smell the scent when I first burned it and whatever scent I got from up close felt very synthetic. Both the throw and longevity are next to nothing. Besides, the candle doesn't burn evenly, creating a deep well, which makes lighting it difficult progressively. Ouai, whose products are famed for their wonderful scents, messed up big time with this product. Avoid at all costs.
I really dislike this candle. I had higher hopes for it but it is not very nice at all. The scent feels very synthetic and I was expecting something fresh and not so toxic smelling. Very disappointing. I do not recommend this I suppose the only thing is you can use the pot afterwards.
Mine happened to tunnel really badly. So did the other North Bondi candle. The smell is decent up close but faint. Sephora later put it on sale for $20 and I still wouldn’t re-purchase. Reviews over there were not too great either. The jar is pretty much the only nice thing about it.
Wick broke easily
The scent is great and the candle jar is pretty. The throw of the candle is so so but enough to fill a smaller space. After a few burn, the candle wick dropped to one side, made it hard to burn the candle evenly. I tried to move the wick back to center but the candle wick broke so easily. This candle need a stronger wick.
