First impression of Fresh Strawberries:
One of my local grocery stores carries a small variety of Village Candles so it’s always fun to smell a scent before purchasing. Fresh Strawberries smelled bright, sweet and wonderful. A fresh candied strawberry that reminded me of strawberry punch with lots of sugar.
Here is the scent description for Fresh Strawberries:
Conjuring lush, languid summer afternoons, peak sunshine and carefree days of daydreaming and sky gazing, nothing captures that perfect summer feeling like ruby-ripe strawberries. Voluptuously tempting in their juiciness, and even more decadent when dipped in a little sugar like we’ve done here. Welcome to summer (no matter what the season).
Strawberry and sugar – yes! I can totally see that smelling this candle, and I liked it. Now hoping the scent stays true once burning. Also hoping it’s strong. I would love for this candle to fill my bedroom with aroma.
Time to find out!
I lit my Fresh Strawberries candle in my master bedroom and ended up moving it a few hours later to a much smaller room. A few hours after that, I moved it again to an even smaller room – my powder room. For a two-wick candle, it wasn’t as strong as I hoped it would be, and that made me sad. Once moved though, the strength was perfect and my entire powder room smelled like a sweet strawberry candy. It didn’t smell fake or synthetic – just a sugary strawberry candy kind of aroma. I thought it smelled pretty good, just a little too light.
Which brings me to strength – I would rate Fresh Strawberries from Village Candle a 4 out of 10 in a super small room. That’s pretty dang light. I wouldn’t even try it in anything larger.
How Did My Fresh Strawberries Candle Burn?
This candle burned great. No wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish and I never once had to trim the wicks. The flames stayed at a consistent level from beginning to end, which was a nice and unexpected surprise.
Closing To My Review:
I enjoyed Fresh Strawberries from Village Candle but wasn’t very happy with the strength. I did purchase this candle at my local grocery store so who knows… I may try it again down the road and see if I get a different result. If I do, will revise my review with the updated results. Maybe I purchased an older candle they had it stock for a long time? You never know…
Village Candles has been having some pretty cool sales lately so if you wanted to try this brand, wait for a sale. The last batch I ordered, I got 30% off. That’s pretty good.
Happy candle hunting!
