Brand: Better Homes and Gardens
Scent: Apple Blossom Freesia
Type: 18oz Candle and 2.5oz Clamshell Melts
First impression of Apple Blossom Freesia:
I purchased both candle and melts at my local Walmart store and couldn’t resist the pretty pink wax. You know spring is here when you start seeing fruity and floral scent stocked on all the shelves. I’m normally not a fan of floral scents but I found myself purchasing one candle and a few of these melts anyway because the wax smelled so fresh and sweet.
Here is the scent description for this Apple Blossom Freesia:
Breezy apple blossom and ethereal freesia greens intermingle with green pear and ripe raspberry touched by sugared currant and sweet apricot.
First impression… the wax did smell floral but it also has a sweet and fresh element to it that I really liked. I smelled so many things… the sweet scent of pear and raspberries, fresh currant and freesia which truly was a lovely and fresh floral. Nothing sweet or heavy in this scent. It was fresh as can be and I was really excited to light this candle.
Time to get started!
As with all Better Homes and Gardens candles, I stuck to a small bathroom to burn this candle in. Once the wick was lit, it took several hours to reach a full melt pool and from then on… the freshest scent of freesia and raspberries filled my bathroom. It was truly one of the freshest floral scents I have ever smelled. Not too floral and not too fruity. It was a perfect balance of both. I LOVED IT!!!!
The melts… the same fresh scent but much stronger! Highly recommend the melts if you love super strong fragrances. It will not disappoint.
Strength – I would rate this candle an 8 out of 10 in a small room. Maybe a 6 in a medium size room. Melts – 10 out of 10 in any size room.
This candle burned perfect. No wick issues. Clean and even burn from start to finish.
Closing to my review:
I absolutely loved Apple Blossom Freesia from Better Homes and plan on purchasing another candle before the season ends. That seems to be the word of the day in this review… fresh, because that’s exactly what this scent was… a fresh and vibrant floral scent. I loved it.
This is a limited addition candle so not sure how long it will be available. So if you want one, don’t wait.
Happy candle hunting!
Strength: 4/5 (Burning in a small room)
