It's always a tad painful to light a super expensive candle. Oftentimes, folks (us included) will leave one unlit for years simply because it's perhaps either an impressive statement piece from a hoity-toity company, or an I-would-never-buy-that-for-myself $88 candle won from the office White Elephant holiday party. (Take that Pete from IT!)
