Due to the uniqueness and hand poured quality of our products no two candles are ever exactly the same. We do our best to recreate what you see on our website but please remember we are people pouring your candles with love whipping the wax and creating a unique and special candle just for you. We are not machines pumping out an identical candle each and everytime.
We do not refund monies or make exchanges if a fragrance is not to your liking or if you feel the fragrance is not strong enough. Please remember that cure time is a real thing, if your wax does not smell strong enough upon delivery give it some more time to cure. You can read more about cure time on our "candle care" page http://www.candlesbyvictoria.com/candle-care. If you are unsure of a particular scent, please order a sample size first before purchasing a larger quantity. If you have a damaged product, please contact us immediately via the website.
*Finished "melt" products are measured in fluid ounces where noted.
