McCall's Buttons & Candle Bars

McCall's Candles Wax Potpourri Buttons are one of the most popular products that we sell at TartBurners.com and we carry them in over 60 fragrances. However, we do occasionally receive some negative feedback on this item. McCall's sells the buttons unpackaged and unmarked and our warehouse does not have the capability to package and mark them. We typically put up to 12 buttons in small poly bags with mixed fragrances. The fragrances do not "mix" into the buttons as the fragrance comes from the scented oils in the wax, which is not released until the buttons are melted. Some of the buttons are pretty obvious which they are by color but many are a similar caramel color.

There are a couple of ways to order McCall's wax potpourri and have a better idea of the fragrance in the product. Buttons come in boxes of 36, so we ship orders with 36 buttons of the same fragrance in their original box which is marked by McCall's. Even orders of 12 buttons of the same fragrance are generally shipped with only 1 fragrance in a poly bag.

A second alternative is McCall's Candle Bars. This product is packaged and labeled and uses the same wax as the buttons.  Candle Bars are 5.5 oz. divided into 6 wedges, making each wedge almost 0.9 oz., which is larger than the buttons that are 0.7 oz. The price is about the same per wedge, so the candle bars are a better value per ounce of wax. We carry McCall's Candle Bars in 37 fragrances, so they may be a better alternative for most fragrances for customers planning to purchase 6 or more buttons in the same fragrance.
