I have tried several of the votives from the Excursion collection. The price was reasonable at $2.50 ea. The scents ranged from love it to loathe it. All but Demeter burned well. No soot. Demeter scent for some reason had too small a flame no matter what I tried and was the same with 2 votives. All scents were medium throw, but not bad for votive size. Amalfi (Olibanum, Olive Blossom, Sage) was a favorite and reminded me of Autumn Dubai (Amber, Mandarin, Musk) Great sexy scent. South Beach and men is what comes to mind. Charleston (Hyacinth, White Jasmine, Tuberose) This one was off putting to me. I actually stopped burning it mid way. And this from a gal who adores Jasmine and Tuberose Le Jardin (Bougainvillea,Jasmine, Willow) All I smelled was roses. scent was only so-so. Lanai (Ginger, Pineapple, Mandarin) I have this in a travel tin size and have not burned it yet. the cold smell is wonderfully tropical and strong. This one scents a room without lighting it. I have since reordered Amalfi and Dubai plus will try other scents like Stonehenge. Overall, I enjoy trying these different and sometimes exotic combinations of scents.
