Introduction to My Review of a Tangerine Scented Ergo Candle from FatCatCandles.com…
My latest candle experience is an Ergo candle in the flavor Tangerine. Ergo is a luxury brand that makes high quality and unique candles.
With so many luxury brands to choose from, it can be really confusing deciding what to order. Ergo is one of many brands but after trying this candle, I definitely think they’re one of the better. I loved my Tangerine candle and look forward to trying different Ergo fragrances in the future.
When I first smelled my candle, I thought it smelled more like grapefruit than a tangerine. I never trust my noses opinion alone so I asked a friend of mine who is also a candle addict what she thought of it, not telling her what the fragrance was, and she said grapefruit… how very interesting. So, more confused than ever, I lit my candle and after letting it burn for an entire day, I was still unsure if I was smelling tangerine or grapefruit so I decided to ask my husbands opinion. He agreed that the fragrance smelled just like a grapefruit. He even went so far as to say it was the most authentic grapefruit candle of mine he’s ever smelled and that he really liked it. Hmmmmm?
I’ve burned this candle for two days straight now and I’ve decided that figuring out what I’m smelling doesn’t really matter because I really-really like it. The fragrance is very citrusy and to me, smelled very authentic, just like putting your nose up to a juicy grapefruit, sorry Ergo but it smells like a grapefruit. It had that citrus bite to it I’m always after in any citrus candle I purchase so I was really impressed. The scent is very fresh and strong, fragrancing my entire bedroom & adjoining bathroom so it definitely gives a great throw. Citrus fans, you would like this one as it is very fresh & zesty.
My candle burned clean with no soot. A tiny bit of wax residue was left along the glass wall but not much.
Overall opinion of my Tangerine candle from Ergo:
I enjoyed my Tangerine candle and I’m sure Ergo has plenty of other fragrances I would enjoy as much. I will definitely be trying more in the future. They’re great candles and definitely of good quality. They burn clean and give a great scent throw.
Happy candle hunting!
