Hey, not everyone can be a star. Unfortunately, we tried some new wood wicks that are sub-par and sometimes light and sometimes don't. We didn't have the heart to throw away these amazing smelling candles, so we're selling them heavily discounted, as-is. If you get one where the wick doesn't work, a candle warmer works amazing! If you would like to take the chance, you may get a fully functioning candle for less half the price!
