|What did my Chocolate Raspberry candle from Harry & David smell like?
I have to say before I begin, this is normally not a scent I would outright buy… I don’t really care for chocolate scents in any form. I bought it because it happened to be on sale and it was Harry & David. In my experience, most chocolate/fruit scented candles tend to smell fake or synthetic. It never gets pulled off quite right… to my picky nose anyway. But when I popped open the lid to smell it for the first time, I was intrigued… it smelled really yummy. The raspberry smelled creamy, sweet and true with hints of chocolate in the background. Like real raspberries dipped in chocolate.
I couldn’t find a scent description anywhere online and the candle doesn’t list one. I do know Harry & David are known for their Raspberry Truffles so I’m assuming this scent was created to resemble it.
I’ve had this candle burning for a few days now and it’s pretty good. The scent does change a tiny bit when burning… the raspberry really dominates with very little chocolate which was fine by me. Scent strength on a scale of 1 to 10 was around a 6… not super strong but strong enough that you notice the scent the moment you walk in the room. This candle is absolutely gorgeous burning. The wax takes on a dark pink that was striking to look at with the flames going. Loved how it burned.
