The Yankee Patchouli Candle offers the best bang for the buck.  The 22oz jar candle costs $28 and will give you about 110-150 hours of burn time.  Yankee added a bit of sweetness to this patchouli candle, as cinnamon was added as a top note & vanilla was added as a base note.  The result is a sweet, smooth patchouli fragrance.  As with many Yankee candles, it is best burned in a smaller room as scent throw is an issue.
