    I don't care how much it costs, I'm not risking burning my house down. What's the obsession with candles in this day and age!

    No Candles. I am an expert advertiser and I've had two customers who were CERTAIN candles were something major. They are not and have not been since 1967. These individuals burned through great many dollars on promoting and neither ever offered enough to make up what they spent.

    You can make candles...it is a fun craft...but never hope to sell more than 2. (furthermore, one of those will be to your auntie and the other will be to your mom.)

    Absolutely NOT.  Candles don't need to be purchased or REpurchased that often, and unless you have a lot of spare money laying around, that price is just WAY too high. I don't care what the branding is. 

    I honestly think candles are just one of those items that everyone can get VERY cheaply if they really want them. Even ones in nice packaging. The market is just flooded with options. And you will need huge amounts of marketing to sell such items--that will cost you a lot.

    Nope, I sure wouldn’t. I’m. It a big candle person, but even if I was there is no way I’d pay 10x more for something, regardless of packaging. Lots of people think they can make candles. Lots of people fail.

    No.

    I don't need candles that cost over a few dollars since the ones that cost a few dollars are often have better smells and look nicer.

    No I wouldn't.

    And why would I want to keep the packaging?    It's not like I'm walking around my house saying, "Gosh, I wish I had a box to put right there."

    You are going to fail.

    That is a lot of money for something that burns away.  You can buy scented candles for a much cheaper price.  You would need to know that there is a market for them where you are and if Chanel and other established companies are already selling expensive candles, why would someone buy one from someone unknown?  It wouldn't matter how beautiful the packaging, it is too expensive for most people.  There is no harm in you making some and trying to sell them to see whether you can find your market.
