Intro To My Candle Review
I am thrilled to do this 9 To 5 candle review for Evoke Candle Company. I have been pleased with all the products I’ve tried so far from this company, and there were so many things to love about this particular candle. It’s pink. I tips its hat to one of my favorite stars, Dolly Parton. And there are rhinetones…oh my! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one and see what it was all about.
First Impressions of My Candle
Unboxing the candles from Evoke are like unwrapping a present from start to finish. The box for 9 To 5…oh, the box! It was this gorgeous fuchsia box with hand-applied Swarovski crystals. The candle was wrapped in a pastel purple tissue paper. Nestled inside was the most beautiful candle vessel I’ve seen in a long, long time. It was bright fuchsia and included the name ‘9 to 5’ on the front inside the outline of a clock. There were hand-applied Swarovski crystals on the candle jar – swoon! It was so blingy and so Dolly Parton…perfect for this themed candle!
This particular candle was soy with white wax and there was a single, well-placed wick. On cold sniff, I smelled the zestiness of a sweet, juicy grapefruit. Perfect! Looking at the scent description:
The uplifting, sweet pink grapefruit scent of 9 To 5 is a perfect way to pick up your mood after a long day of slogging away at work. With its fuchsia colored jar and hand applied Swarovski Crystals, this candle is as bright and shiny as Ms. Dolly herself! So, kick off your shoes, light this candle and pour yourself a glass of bubbly – you deserve it!
I started this candle in a large master bedroom, as I’ve had good luck with the scent throw from these candles. It did not take long for me to start smelling the sweet/tart smell of grapefruit throughout the bedroom. To me, this scent was bright, tangy, and energizing – never bitter, like some grapefruit scents can be. I was able to smell it better once I got a full wax melt pool (see burn performance below) – it was a moderately strong scent that I could smell throughout the bedroom and on out past the door once it got going. Delicious!
How Did My Candle Perform?
I let my candle burn for several hours on its initial burn, but I wasn’t able to get a full wax melt pool. I did have a rim of wax that remained. I did try on my second burn and hoped I would get that full pool, but that didn’t work either – the “memory” was set. I ended up using a blow dryer to even out the wax and then when I burned it the third time I was able to get that full wax melt pool I desired. I had a really good scent throw during the first and second burns, but I had a fantastic throw once I was able to get my full wax melt pool.
The candle gave off a beautiful glow while burning – it was really stunning! The burn itself was clean – I never noticed any black soot.
Closing To My Candle Review
I had such fun burning this candle. I think it was a perfect ode to Mrs. Parton, herself – bright, shiny, energetic, and a little bit flashy. The scent strength and throw were really good and this was a super clean burn. My only hangup with this candle was the inability to get that full wax melt pool initially. I’ve had good success with my other candles from Evoke, so I’m thinking this was just a fluke. This is a candle I would love to get again and I would gift it in a heartbeat. This might be something that would be perfect for Mother’s Day!
