Sturdy, long-lasting, in an attractive glass jar. A little goes a long way -- you only need burn the candle for a short time to have the natural, fruity-herbal scent gently filling the room. With the cork lid off, the scent continues long after the candle is extinguished. I like that you have the option to preserve the candle a bit better with the cork lid. This is a wonderful addition to the other fantastic products in this line.
