I have been an avid candle lover for years and always used Yankee brand until I found the Christy Candles. I needed a gift for a friend and stopped in the store in Madison, there is a lot in the store and it was all reasonably priced. I bought the gift and also bought a candle for myself. I purchased the Black Cherry fragrance and it smells wonderful! The scent carries all through the house and this brand has quickly become my favorite. You cant beat the price and the candles last forever it seems.
