First Impression of Aqua:
Aqua is next up to review in Kringle’s masculine line of candles I’ve been interested in for a while. I’ve always been a big fan of masculine fragrances… they’re just so fresh and happy, and Kringle has quite the selection. Have you noticed that? A huge selection!!
Aqua is described as:
Bright citrus, marine and bergamot notes blend with musk and sandalwood for a fresh, expansive union.
Mmm!! Smelling the wax, I couldn’t stop myself from smiling. This candle smelled awesome!! I smelled it all, the citrus, bergamot, musk and sandalwood and all blended so perfectly, you couldn’t pick one apart from the other if you tried. Basically, this candle smelled like a yummy masculine aftershave and a scent I couldn’t WAIT to have wafting through my living space.
Time to get to it!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom to start out and soon after ended up moving it to a medium size room. This candle could have held it’s own in a larger room, but it wouldn’t have been as strong, and I wanted maximum strength. Once moved, the aroma was much better and as I sat in the room smelling the fragrance, I was trying to think of the right words I could use to describe it and kept coming back to one word – marine. Kringle was right to use that word in the description because although the aroma was definitely masculine, it was very fresh but also sweet and had a soothing quality to it. This isn’t a scent I could imagine my husband wearing out on the town… it was more of a home fragrance kind of scent. It was very soothing, sweet and spa-like. I hope that makes sense.
Strength – I would rate this candle a 10 out of 10 in a small room. 7/10 in a medium room and a 5 in a larger room. I think this candle is definitely more suited to medium to smaller rooms for the best scent throw.
How Did My Candle Burn?
This candle burned absolutely perfect. Zero wick issues, very little wick trimming maintenance and it burned clean from start to finish. A+
Closing To My Aqua Candle Review:
I loved Aqua from Kringle and can totally see myself purchasing this fragrance again. It’s a great bedroom/bathroom scent to really liven and freshen up a room. Every time I walked into my guest bedroom, I inhaled deeply and smiled. It’s a happy scent. Definitely check out Aqua if you love fresh masculine scents. Out of all the masculine scents I’ve tried from Kringle so far, this has been my favorite.
Happy candle hunting!
