Known as Fragrant Tea Olive, Osmanthus is an evergreen bush that blooms in late fall through early spring. The incomparable fragrance is, at once, fruity and floral. Very exotic and a must experience to believe scent.

My partner and I recently moved to California from Mississippi. While we love our new home, the smells of the sweet olive trees permiating the air is one thing we are certainly going to miss from Mississippi. I found this candle when my partner reminded me of that and the reviews spoke for themselves. The candle smells strong when unlit but when burning throws it's scent just like the sweet olive trees themselves. We are loving it, and missing our Mississippi home less and less!

I love the smell of fragrant tea olive, it's my favorite and my mother's!! I bought two candles and it smells just like it. I am from the south and I can go outside and smell it but I wanted it in my house, now I have it!!! And I had to order my mother some of the wax cubes. I have looked for this scent everywhere and Phebes is the only place I can find it. Thank you so much please don't stop making this scent!!!

My family has grown up in the south surrounded by tea olive bushes. My son recently moved to Brooklyn. I sent the tea olive candle to remind him of home. It hit the spot. It smells just like the real thing.

I bought two of them and couldn't be happier. My nose is so good I can smell everything and this candle smells exactly like the real thing. Not artificial, not fake, just the real scent. It smells soft, strong at the same time and makes me feel warm inside.
I leave one by my bed and even if I don't light the candle, I can smell the light scent in the air.

Exactly the fragrance I wanted. I love the tea olive blossom smell and it's so rare to find it in a product. Quickly fills my home with the fragrance and lasts a long time. LOVE it. Will definitely be purchasing more.

This is my second holiday season purchasing the tea olive candles. The scent is great (you could even smell them through the box!) and the candles are very high quality. I received very thorough customer service from placing the order, discussing packaging options (this was a gift for my girlfriend, so I didn't want to ruin the surprise), and the timely delivery. I was very satisfied and will definitely continue ordering.

Mike provided great customer service. He sent updates throughout the process, answered all of my questions and included a gift note in my order upon request. The candles were well packaged and smell lovely. They even smell nice when not lit. Very happy and will purchase again in the future. My friend who received one as a gift also loved her candle!

I love the tea olive trees in Charleston and was happy to find these candles online. I took a chance and was delighted. Delivery was prompt and the packaging is so nice that I'm going to order some for gifts.
Although nothing beats the scent of the true blossoms, these candles do a very nice job and I'm really enjoying them.
I appreciate that this is an eco-friendly company, a small business and will continue to support them by purchasing their fine products.
