What did my candle smell like?
I’ve been really enjoying the candles I’ve tried so far from Shining Sol and I especially love all the names they choose for all their fragrances. They personalize each one which I think is really special and I’m having fun “not” looking at the descriptions before the review, letting my nose decide. Sometimes I’m right, sometimes not. Up next… Family Traditions which from cold sniff, smelled like a warm and yummy apple pie.
Here is the scent description for Family Tradition:
A unique blend of pumpkin pie and kitchen spices that remind you of home made baking recipes passed down from generation to generation.
What? Not apple pie… pumpkin pie! Interesting. I smelled the wax one more time before lighting the wick and truly wasn’t detecting pumpkin. But, maybe the pumpkin notes come to life once the candle is burning. Whatever I was smelling… it was delicious. A warm and spicy bakery. I couldn’t wait to light it up and smell the magic.
Time to find out!
I lit this candle in a small room for maximum scent throw and it was a perfect choice. Perfect! Within minutes of lighting it, the aroma traveled all throughout the room and was even spilling outside the room in the hallway as well. Very nice. The aroma… a nice and warm pumpkin bakery. Yes… the pumpkin did come to life once the candle was burning and it was cozy and delicious. The best part… I could hear the crackle from the wood wick which added the perfect touch of ambiance in the room.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8 in a small room. Medium and above, 5 at the most.
My candle burned perfect! Zero issues. Not one issue with the wood wick and the candle burned clean from start to finish. A+
Closing to my review:
If you love warm pumpkin fragrances, you’ll enjoy this candle. Keep in mind it gave a subtle scent throw but was perfect burning in a small room. So should you want to try it in a bigger room, I would go with 2 candles at once. I do that a lot and it always does the trick.
Happy candle hunting!
Burn Performance: 5/5
