Not real bayberry
Dec 16, 2021
I wrote another review before this one, believing I had bought a real bayberry pillar candle. I called the manufacturer about this candle, turns out is is not a real bayberry candle, it is a scented parrafin candle. Lehman's customer service told me that it is a real bayberry candle. The only real bayberry candle Lehmans carries, are the hand-dipped tapers from the same company. Very disappointed.
Lehman's says: We are so sorry that the product was not what you were expecting! Thank you for reaching out to let us know and please reach out so that we can hear from you more and make things right!

I saw the bad review for this candle, but bought it anyway. I got the 4"x 4" pillar candle, so maybe the long-burning type it is, might make a difference. It takes quite a while of burning to fill the room with the scent, but when it does, it's lovely! Not that nasty, overpowering scent from artificial, chemical scented candles, but the real deal. A few years ago, I was given one of those big, artificial vanilla-scented candles, but I only burn that one outside, because the smell is like when someone wears too much awful cheap perfume. I recommend this bayberry pillar candle, I might buy one every Christmas.

I purchased 2 of these candles hoping they would be a true bayberry fragrance reminiscent of the the candles we burned every Christmas when I was a child. Don't waste your money! The bayberry fragrance is faint with a sweet note that reminds one of cheap perfume. I was very disappointed.

Bayberry candle arrived safe and sound and as I had expected. So far just looking at it. It will burn from 12/01/2016 until finished.
Best Bayberry Candle

I have bought these Bayberry Candles from Lehman's for the last two years. They last extremely well and give off the most wonderful Bayberry scent. When I write "Bayberry," I mean REAL Bayberry not just some scented candle. I look forward to once again ordering this year.

Wonderful bayberry fragrance: subtle &, intimate, not overpowering like some candles with artificial scent added. It took my candle about one hour before the bayberry warmed enough to create a pronounced scent & approximately 2-1/2 hours for the fragrance to fill my living room. The directions suggest burning the candle for 4-6 hours at a time, most likely for this very reason. I am very pleased with the pillar, and am very glad I did not read the negative comments before buying it; I am now about to purchase 3 more for gifts! If you would prefer an overpowering fragrance to fill your living space immediately upon lighting, I would suggest that this is not the candle for you.

These candles were a great disappointment. Not a trace of bayberry fragrance. A total waste of money.

I think these are nice quality candles. I bought seven to try them out and I am not disappointed, but a stronger bayberry scent would be preferable.

Lovely scent that brought back childhood memories. My mother loves Bayberry candles, and until the past few years, has always had one in the living room. Alas, it has become difficult to find even artificially scented. Mom was thrilled to get two of these for Christmas this year. It's so much nicer to have the real thing: subtle, pleasant, and distinctive. Thank you Lehman's for having the good stuff!

The bayberry scented pillar, is garbage. It is very low quality, bubbly paraffin and is cinnamon scented, definitely not bayberry. Very disappointed in that one.

Burns nicely, but I personally would like a stronger bayberry scent.
