Apparently you're not safe even if you spend $700 on a candle:

Are candles becoming more hazardous, or is the intelligence of some of their users dropping?
Government ban on the way?

I'd imagine it would only pose a hazard if you put too much wax in the bowl, causing excess to melt over the side and catch fire. Those cubes look like way too much.

Unusual product in any case. Most people just buy scented candles. In this case, you are apparently buying "scent cubes" and supplying your own candles to heat them. Doubtful that they sell "refill cubes" cheaply for the unit, so somebody who wants to keep using this will be tossing their old burner and buying a new one every time to get more cubes.
Keep candles at least 3 feet from anything flammable. Unless it turns into a blowtirch, it won't throw flames for that kind of distance.
