Fragrance: Festive Holiday Cheer
Scent Strength: Light
First impression of Festive Holiday Cheer:
Festive Holiday Cheer from Better Homes smelled pretty good when I first popped off the lid. It smelled fruity, like a sweet effervescent fruit punch. So of course I had to purchase one to review. I love burning holiday scents and even more so when they’re fruity and sweet just to change things up a bit.
I couldn’t find a scent description for this fragrance so I’ll do my best to describe it for you. First impression, the wax smelled fruity and bubbly with a teeny touch of something spicy. It smelled pretty interesting. The label on the candle showed 3 champagne flutes filled with a pink bubbly concoction with raspberries floating on top so I think I nailed it!! Pink champagne with berries. Woohoo!!!!
Time to find out how this candle performs!
I lit this candle in a small bathroom and came back an hour later to the aroma of an effervescent berry scent. The aroma smelled exactly like it did cold before lighting it but, it was very light so I’m glad I chose a very small room to burn this candle in. My favorite part with this aroma? I loved the touch of effervescence my nose could actually detect. It made the scent more unique. Also noting, I still smelled something spicy in the background. It was subtle but distinctly there.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 4 in a small room. Definitely one of their more subtle aroma’s.
This candle burned nice and slow so you definitely get your money’s worth. Just remember to keep that wick trimmed. If you don’t, the flame will get out of hand.
Closing to my review:
Festive Holiday Cheer was a fun and bright fragrance and a nice change if you’re in the mood for a holiday scent that’s sweet and lighter. My only complaint would be the strength. I expect Better Homes and Gardens candles to be lightly scented but this candle was lighter than normal. Other than that, great scent.
Happy candle hunting!
