Fragrance: Cranberry Grapefruit
Scent Strength: Medium
First impression of Cranberry Grapefruit:
I got lucky and picked up Cranberry Grapefruit at a local grocery store that happens to carry a nice variety of Village Candles. It’s always fun (and preferable) smelling a fragrance prior to purchasing it and this one smelled nice and fruity – a perfect scent for spring.
Here is the scent description for Cranberry Grapefruit:
Our Cranberry Grapefruit pairing brings a juicy spark to any setting. Energizing in nature, this colorful fragrance brings a welcome feeling of exhilaration and a fresh approach to every day.
That description doesn’t tell you much, but that’s okay. Smelling the wax, I picked up on an equal measure of both cranberry and grapefruit so that’s a good sign. The best part, one element didn’t dominate over the other. It wasn’t super zesty or sharp, nor too sweet or tart. It was a perfect balance of the two. I liked it just based off cold sniff.
Now let’s see how it performs once burning!
I lit this candle in my guest bedroom (a medium size room) and am happy to report, it did quite well there. Once the wicks were lit, a full melt pool formed in no time (thanks to two wicks) and from then on out, a balanced aroma of zesty grapefruit and cranberry filled the room. Up close to the candle, the grapefruit did stand out a little more but you would never know once you move away from the candle. All I could smell was a sort of grapefruit and cranberry spritzer.
Strength – I would rate Cranberry Grapefruit an 8 out of 10 in a really large room. That’s not bad at all. 10 in medium to smaller rooms.
How Did My Cranberry Grapefruit Candle Burn?
This candle burned great. Very little wick maintenance too which I loved. Clean burning from beginning to end.
Closing to My Review:
I enjoyed Cranberry Grapefruit from Village Candle and would totally purchase this one again. The aroma smelled like a grapefruit spritzer with a shot of cranberry. Totally my kind of scent and a perfect fragrance for spring/summer.
I hit a great sale with Village a couple of weeks ago and bought a few of their newer scents to review so stay tuned. 🙂 More reviews to come.
Happy candle hunting!
