What did my candle smell like?
Yes, it’s January and I’m still working on Christmas reviews. How awesome is that? What can I say? December goes by too fast with so much to do, I had a hard time burning all the candles I wanted to review. SO!! I’m running late.
Dashing Through the Snow is the cutest candle… see picture above for visual reference. Cute right? The scent on first sniff… fresh and wintery. The fragrance reminded me of a fresh Christmas tree and fresh air.
Here is the scent description from the bottom of the candle:
“Breathe in the crisp cool air of a holiday sleigh ride with a blend of green balsam, wintery musk and the jingle of sparkling citrus.”
Just smelling the wax, it was hard to tell if I could smell musk or citrus… to me the wax smelled like balsam. It was fresh and crisp. I had my husband smell it before lighting and he liked it too. Time to find out what it smells like burning.
I lit this candle in my master bedroom and would say it took a good 15 minutes to really start noticing the fragrance. Once the aroma filled my bedroom… it was wonderful and the scent….. a fresh Christmas tree but I still wasn’t detecting musk or citrus. The scent was all tree. Also want to point out… my hubby loved it just like I knew he would! He said it smelled fresh and authentic. So… two thumbs up from my pine expert.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8. It wasn’t knock your socks off strong but it was decent and filled my large bedroom with fragrance. It just didn’t travel outside the room.
My candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues – clean burning with no soot or smoke. A+
Closing to my review:
This was a great fragrance and highly recommend it for those after an authentic Christmas tree fragrance. It was pretty authentic minus the musk and citrus which was a-okay with me. The balsam really made this fragrance anyway.
Happy candle hunting!

I admit I am a rookie in terms of candle knowledge but I know this, I love this scent! People breeze through it near my cubicle and they show immediate reactions to the nice smell they just experienced. This scent rocks and is unique. It is sure to please but yes, it is pricy! I think of all the other ways I waste money then said look how much pleasure and lasting results I get for the same amount of money.
Best wishes all.
