First impression of Thai Ginger & Osmanthus Flower:
Thai Ginger & Osmanthus Flower was such a pretty candle… I couldn’t resist purchasing when I was at Cost Plus World Market. Yep, even that store carries a nice variety of scented candles worth checking out.
This candle was so pretty, the box especially so. The candle itself was an orange glass vessel with creamy white wax and one centered cotton wick. The box was orange as well to match the candle but two sides had a tapestry kind of pattern printed on it. The whole look was very vintage and “old world.”
Here is the scent description for Thai Ginger & Osmanthus Flower:
The sweet scent of zesty oranges and tropical nectarines float on a salted piece of palm wood and a wave filled with Thai Ginger crashes into a floral osmanthus coastline.
Cool description!! Smelling the wax, the wax had very little scent so I’m hoping the aroma breaks out once the candle was burning.
Time to find out!!
I lit this candle in a small bathroom where it stayed till the very end. Once the wick was lit, it took hours to get a nice melt pool but unfortunately, it never did reach a full one. Because of that, the wax did tunnel and the scent was almost nonexistent. What I could smell was very nice. A sweet orange.
Strength – This candle was very light. In a tiny small room, I would rate this candle a 2 out of 10 and that’s being generous.
As I already stated above, this candle did not burn very well. The candle never reached a full melt pool so it tunneled and left a lot of wax behind.
Very pretty candle and it sure smelled good on cold sniff… it just produced very little fragrance and didn’t burn as well as it should have. Big bummer. Would I recommend it? No. Unless you are just after ambiance or to use as a pretty decoration.
I’m not giving up on World Market candles though… more reviews to come.
Happy candle hunting!
