Cozy Nights – Signature Soy Candle


Cozy Nights Signature Soy Candle ReviewCozy Nights

By Christina Rylan

Brand: Signature Soy from Illume

Type: 15.1oz candle

Fragrance: Cozy Nights

Scent Strength: Medium



First impression of Cozy Nights: 

Signature Soy candles at Target is a great brand I am really enjoying. If there’s a new scent to be had, I’m buying it. Cozy Nights seemed subtle at first but it still smelled really good, like rustic woodsmoke with vanilla and sandalwood maybe? Mmm! Definitely a romantic scent you can cozy up to any time of the day.

Here is the scent description I pulled from Target’s website:

Woodsy, Bergamot, Vetiver

Yes!! That’s what I smelled. Bergamot, vetiver and wood smoke, and the combination was sultry and delicious. Crossing fingers the aroma stays consistent once the candle was burning. Let’s find out!

Cozy NightsI lit this candle in a small room to start out and that’s where it stayed till the last drop of wax. The fragrance… sweet wood smoke, vetiver and bergamot which all combined reminded me of a light masculine cologne. To me, the wood smoke stood out the most with bergamot and vetiver lightly blending into each other. Loved it, and once again I must say, this was a very romantic and sultry scent you’ll want to burn on a date night or when you’re after a bit of sophistication. It was a really pretty candle to watch burn as well. The wax was gray but once burning, it burned a dark black color and glowed beautifully. The only downside to this candle was the strength. I burned this candle in a small room and although it performed well there, it would have been too subtle in anything larger.

Which brings me to strength – I would rate this candle a 6 out of 10 in a really small room. That’s not super strong but did give a steady medium scent throw. If you dare to go larger, I would try burning two candles at once.



How did my candle burn?

This candle burned perfect. Zero wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.



Closing to my review: 

Cozy Nights from Signature Soy was a romantic scent worth checking out, especially if you love the aroma of sweet wood smoke. I enjoyed the heck out of it and plan on purchasing one again next time I’m at my local Target store. Just keep in mind it was lightly scented. And just to be clear, I don’t mind that at all. It all balances out for me since I do burn candles in smaller rooms anyway. That’s when I go for the subtle aromas such as this one.

Happy candle hunting!
