What did my candle smell like?
Pomegranate from Illume was purchased through one of their amazing sales and boy does this candle smell lovely. Initial impression, it reminded me of an exotic red berry scent with hints of amber or musk. Very pretty.
Here is the scent description for Pomegranate:
A rich combination of dark berries and Merlot grapes.
Yes, that is exactly what this fragrance reminds me of. Dark berries, grapes and something else… something sultry and sensual. I keep going back to musk. The overall scent seemed very romantic and definitely not your average sweet pomegranate scent. Not even close.
Time to find out how this candle burns!
I lit this candle in a small room where it performed perfectly there. Once lit, it took about 20 minutes or so to reach a full melt pool and once it did… the sultry aroma of pomegranate and musk traveled all throughout the room. I know there is more to this fragrance, it isn’t just pomegranate and white grapes. It’s sexy, sultry, sophisticated…. And very romantic. A scent you’ll want to burn for a romantic evening or dinner party. It’s not fruity or a scent a child would love. It’s definitely a fragrance only an adult could appreciate.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 10 in a small room. 6/7 in a medium room. Not too strong but a nice and soft medium.
This candle burned great. No wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
Pomegranate was a sensuous and alluring fragrance and not your average berry scent. I loved it.
I don’t see this fragrance listed on Illume’s site anymore so it could be retired or who knows… it may make a comeback. I hope it does because I would for sure purchase it again.
Happy candle hunting!
