    I bought two candles over the summer at Black on the Block for my partner. She had it lit in her apartment one day when I stopped by (it smelled amazing) and I was waiting for my allergies the hit me. It didn’t happen. I just wanted to say that I have never, NEVER, found a candle that I could light and sit with without feeling overly sensitive or nauseous because my senses get overwhelmed. I have a super sensitive nose and awful allergies to scents and perfumes. I had zero issues with these candles. I’m honestly still in disbelief that I wasn’t affected by these….I’m just so happy I can enjoy candles and scents without all the discomfort I experienced in the past. I’m not sure what y’all use but PLEASE don’t change your recipe or ingredients! Stay blessed! <3

    I want to leave a true and heartfelt message about this company and their candles. I finally bought one last week and I was happy to light it each day in my home. It is by far the best candle I have purchased. It has filled my apartment with its beautiful authentic aroma and I hope to get another one soon. I guess I’ve been home a lot, because I have burned it a lot, so now I do need to order another one ;) lol
    I can tell the difference! It is similar to when you taste the best food, that each bite has authentic spices and makes your mouth water hoping for the next experience. There are so many candles on the market and this company indeed has done their research and due diligence to make sure the what you are purchasing and enjoying is pure and unlike a first date, that will continue to fill your heart and your space with continuous melodic aroma and energy. Period. They are the real deal and I hope you support them in all their endeavors ;)
