Pomegranate & Fuji Apple – Candle-Lite Review
By Christina Rylan
Type: 17oz Double Wick Candle
Fragrance: Pomegranate & Fuji Apple
Scent Strength: Light
Introduction to my review:
This is my first Candle-lite review… actually our first ever on Candlefind. Hard to believe since these candles are super inexpensive and available in most grocery stores. The reason… most of the scents I’ve smelled on cold sniff have never appealed to me. At all. The candles (first impression) smelled fake or chemically and I could never bring myself to purchase any. Doesn’t mean I don’t keep trying… I’m always checking out every candle I see **hoping** for a candle in the rough.
Pomegranate & Fuji Apple caught my attention the moment I saw it. I loved the pretty red color of the wax and once I smelled it, I was pleasantly surprised. Finally a candle that actually smelled decent… it smelled like a sweet and classic pomegranate. Sold!!!!
What did my candle look like?
My candle was in a 17oz cylinder jar with a flat chrome lid with “Candle-lite” embossed in the center of the lid. The wax color was a berry red and looked very similar to Yankee Candles shiny mottled wax. My candle had 2 wicks. The label was clear with “Simple Indulgence” at the top of the label with sliced pomegranates and Fuji apples in the center. Very simple, classic and nicely done.
First impression… the wax smelled pretty decent. It smelled like a classic and sweet pomegranate… I wasn’t really detecting apple yet but the overall scent smelled very fruity and pleasing.
Since this is my first experience with Candle-lite… I decided to light my candle in a small bathroom to start out. Instinct proved correct… the scent was super light. It took a good hour for the candle to get a full melt pool and that’s with 2 wicks so this is a very slow burning candle. The scent throw… very light. To smell the fragrance, I had to be really close to the candle, even in a tiny bathroom so that was kind of disappointing. The fragrance (what I could smell) was exactly as it smelled cold… a sweet pomegranate.
How did my candle burn?
This was a really slow burning candle… meaning it took FOREVER to burn from beginning to end. That would normally be a good thing had there been some scent to the candle but there really wasn’t.
Getting a full melt pool with each lighting was a struggle so the candle did tunnel a teeny bit. Not a huge deal but one I still wanted to point that out.
Closing to my review:
All in all, this was an okay experience. The candle burned okay… there was just very little scent to it. Would I buy this fragrance again? Probably not. But I will keep my eye out for more fragrances to try. This brand has been around a long time… there must be some good ones out there I’ve yet to discover. So… the search continues. 🙂
Happy candle hunting!!
