Isabella Luxury Tocca Candle Review
By Christina Rylan
Type: 3oz Candelina
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Isabella from Tocca:
I’m still fairly new to the world of Tocca fragrances but so far, I’m pretty happy with the scent choices I’ve purchased. Stella was the first fragrance I tried (review here) and I really liked it. Next up… Isaballa – another name I love.
Here is the scent description I pulled from Tocca’s website:
As the days grow longer, the fresh, sweet watermelon of Isabella conjures memories of that first slice of summertime fruit on the rind. The perfect summer companion.
Mmm!! Watermelon!! No wonder I was so drawn to this candle. It smelled so sweet and refreshing.
Time to find out how it performs.
Because of the small size, (close to the size of a votive) I lit this candle in a small powder room where it performed perfectly. Once lit, it didn’t take long to start noticing the aroma and once I did… I smelled a sweet and sugary watermelon. It reminded me of tangy watermelon candy. Very nice and tangy.
Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 7 in a small room. I wouldn’t even attempt burning it in anything other than a small room.
How did my candle burn?
My candle burned great. I did have to really watch it and keep the wick trimmed or the flame got out of control. A nice reminder to always monitor your candles burning. Always.
Closing to my review:
Isabella was a summery watermelon fragrance and I liked it but not sure enough to purchase it again. Keeping it real… I could easily purchase a similar scent from another brand (in a much larger candle) for half the price. For me, when paying for a luxury candle, I have pretty high expectations and although the scent was sugar, sweet and delicious… it wasn’t unique which is what I expect from a luxury brand.
I still plan on trying many more Tocca fragrances – this brand is gorgeous and I can’t wait to try more candles in the future.
Happy candle hunting!
Burn Performance: 4/5
Overall Rating: 4/5
We rate each candle we review based off the candles performance, not based on personal opinions so I’m still rating this candle high. Presentation was lovely, the fragrance did match the description, it burned great and the strength was medium and pretty decent for the size candle I purchased.
