My mother loves this gift

5/15/2018 by Ariane

I give this candle 10 stars. I bought it for my mother, the woman who has everything. She loved it and says it was one of the top three gifts I gave her in life. I have given her plenty of jewelry and such but this gift was very unique and beautiful and interesting. I bought her the horizontal candle which I think is more unique. She liked the story of it as well. It matches her cozy and unique house exactly. It was worth every penny. I love grommet for its progressive and unique items.

Awesome piece

I love purchasing from the Grommet. They have great customer service and the response time is quick.

This piece looks great on my kitchen counter and adds a very warm, pleasing ambiance. Will be ordering the replacement candle soon since I light it almost daily, especially in the evening as dinner is being prepared.

I am a Grommet fan and will continue to order from them.

I bought the horizontal version because I really liked the primitive style. I'm using it for a gift for my daughter, which I haven't given yet. But it is her style too so I know this will be a bit hit.


Great conversation peace.

Everyone that visits our house love the candle and wants to know talk about it. Very fun conversation peace.


Looks Exotic / Works Fine

The grandkids are absolutely captivated by the intricate look of our Horizontal Candle contraption. And then when it snuffs itself out... seems like magic! Lots of mini-lessons to learn and share. Love it.


Unique gift idea

My daughter loves candles. When I saw this one, I thought what a great Birthday gift. I was right, she loved it. Her husband thought it was very unique too & they set it up & lit it right away. Looks great on their coffee table. A conversation starter, if I ever saw one. Now I want one for me! I bought her the horizontal style so I think the vertical style is calling my name


Innovative design

This is a unique candle to have out on a table. It gives off a good light and does just what is advertised. I also bought the replacement candle. Well made and easy to use.

The Candle by the Hour Story

Candle by the Hour | The Grommet

“Self-Timed” Beeswax Candles

This coiled beeswax candle lets you set how long it burns. The wick burns 20 minutes per every inch that you pull through the clip, then it’ll put itself out. Its beeswax and cotton wick is eco-friendly, too.

The design was part of the 1600s dating scene. Known as a “courting candle”, protective parents would light one to limit the time prospective suitors could spend with their daughters.

Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
