Type: 26oz large jar
Fragrance: Mandarin Melon
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Mandarin Melon:
As soon as I received an email announcing a few new Candleberry spring/summer scents, I immediately zeroed in on Mandarin Melon. I am such a huge fan of everything melon and couldn’t wait to see what an added citrus component would do to the overall scent.
First impression… my nose detected sweet melon with a hint of oranges. It was refreshing and kind of different.
Here is the scent description from Candleberry’s website:
A colorful heirloom melon variety, carved into thirst quenching geometrical shapes, mingled together with mounds of vibrant sparkling slices of the sweet little mandarin orange.
Time to light my candle!
The last Candleberry candle I burned was really strong so I decided to light this one in my master bedroom just to see how it would perform. Once the wick was lit, it took a good hour or two to reach a full melt pool and unfortunately, the aroma was a little too light for a super big room. Once I moved it to a medium size bedroom, the strength was perfect, and the aroma was just as I imagined… a sweet melon with oranges. This scent was very different. You could clearly smell both elements but the mandarin orange definitely stood out the most to me. The aroma wasn’t too sweet and it wasn’t too zesty so good job Candeberry… this fragrance truly did smell like a perfect medley of melon and mandarin oranges, and definitely a fragrance you need to experience yourself to really appreciate this one.
Strength – On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 10 in a small room, 8 in a medium size room and 6 in a really large room. I found a medium to smaller room to be the perfect size rooms for this fragrance.
This candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to my review:
I have more Candleberry candles to review to stay tuned. More to come in the next few months.
Happy candle hunting!
