Scent Strength: No scent
First impression of Mahogany & Ikebana Rose:
I must say, the beautiful box this candle was housed in drew my attention first. See picture above. The box was a lovely rose pink with intricate patterns printed on the top of the box as well as on two sides. So pretty!! The candle inside was a matching rose pink with creamy white wax and one centered wick. Everything about this candle had a luxury feel to it and I loved the overall presentation.
Here is the scent description for Mahogany & Ikebana Rose:
A beautiful fragrance unfolds as the lovely scent of delicate florals and ikabana roses bloom in an enchanting mahogany forest.
Just to be clear, if this candle was solid floral, I wouldn’t have purchased it so that tells you the mahogany component plays a pretty big role in this fragrance. First impression… I smelled an exotic amber type scent which I’m guessing was the mahogany forest along with hints of delicate floral notes. Very pretty.
Time to see how this candle performs!
I decided to start small and lit this candle in my small powder room to start out where it stayed till the very end. Once the wick was lit, it went downhill from there. This candle never reached a full melt pool and tunneled pretty badly. I would say the wax melted an inch and a half around the wick and burned straight down after that. Because of this, the fragrance never really manifested. If I put my nose right up to the candle, I could smell the aroma and it was lovely… a beautiful amber like floral. I was pretty bummed because I would have loved this scent had the candle burned correctly. 🙁
As stated above, this candle did not burn well. The candle never reached a full melt pool and tunneled pretty badly. Bummed.
Closing to my review:
Mahogany & Ikebana Rose was a beautiful candle and one I had high hopes for but it wasn’t meant to be. I think had it burned correctly, I would have had a different result. The fragrance itself was lovely and I may try it again down the road to see if a new one performs better… we shall see.
Until then, happy candle hunting!
