Vintage Linens Pier 1 Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Brand: Pier 1 Imports
Type: 13.2oz large 3 wick candle
Fragrance: Vintage Linens
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Vintage Linens:
The moment I walk into a Pier 1 store, I head straight to the candle section. There is always a new scent to smell and maybe… just maybe… I’ll end up purchasing one to review. Vintage Linens was a fragrance that intrigued me the moment I smelled it. The crazy part, it was floral scent but not your average sweet and heavy floral. It was soft, fresh and powdery – and very beautiful.
Here is the scent description I pulled from Pier 1’s site:
The timeless clean scent of heirloom linens is captured in this blend of orange blossom, sweet mimosa and white hyacinth, intermingled with rose petals, night-blooming jasmine and white peach.
That’s a lot of different notes going on and yes, this fragrance is predominantly floral but so much more. My first observation… I don’t smell any rose in this fragrance. If I did, I would never have purchased it. Rose and I are simply not on friendly terms. What I could smell was the night-blooming jasmine with orange blossoms and hyacinth. All that blended with the white peach and sweet mimosa really toned it all down leaving behind a fresh and powdery scent. It was very feminine and girly, and I’m happy to report… not an old lady in sight.
Loved! Now time to light my candle!
I lit this candle in my master bedroom to start out and about 6 hours in, I ended up moving it to a smaller medium size room for a stronger aroma. Once moved… perfection! The fragrance… a wonderful and powdery floral filled my guest bedroom. I keep going back to the word powdery because that’s what it smelled like to me. A powdery and soft floral that was fresh and elegant all at once. I smelled a sweet mimosa and white peach blended with night blooming jasmine and white hyacinth with maybe even a touch of vanilla. All blended together smelled like Vintage Linens. Loved it!
Strength – I would rate this candle a 6 out of 10 in a really large room. 8/9 out of 10 in a medium size room. I definitely recommend medium to smaller rooms with this one.
How did my candle burn?
This candle was very slow burning, but it did reach a full melt pool with each new lighting. No wick issues. Clean burning from beginning to end. Great candle.
Closing to my review:
I loved Vintage Linens from Pier 1 and could totally see myself purchasing this candle again. It really surprised me and yep, it’s floral!! Go figure.
Definitely check out this fragrance next time you’re at a Pier 1 store. I recommend it to floral and fresh lovers alike. It’s a keeper.
Happy candle hunting!
