Tuscan Moonlight smelled pretty subtle right off the bat but what I could smell…. very nice.
Tuscan Moonlight smelled pretty subtle right off the bat but what I could smell…. very nice. The wax smelled like sweet berries but with a more sophisticated flair. I’m hoping once the candle was lit, the aroma would strengthen.
Here is the scent description from Pier 1’s website:

Yes, that is definitely what I was smelling, blackberries, plums and maybe it was the nectar that gave it the added sophistication I was noticing when I first smelled it? Whatever it was, it was really lovely.
Time to find out how this candle performs.
How Did My Candle Perform?
I stuck to a small bathroom to test this candle in and ended up leaving it there from start to finish. I wanted maximum scent throw and that’s exactly what I got. The aroma… not what I expected. Reality? I didn’t like it. The fragrance morphed into something perfume’y and the fruity notes I detected early on totally went away leaving an – dare I say this – old lady perfume kind of aroma. Gack!
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle a 9 in a small room. 5 in a medium room. Definitely a room filler in a small room.
How Did My Candle Burn?
This candle burned great. No wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish.
Closing To My Tuscan Moonlight Candle Review
You win some and you lose some. I normally love every scent I’ve purchased from Pier 1 but this candle didn’t float my boat at all. Definitely not purchasing this one again.
Don’t take my word for it though… next time you’re at Pier 1 and you see this candle… smell it. Who knows what you may think.
Happy candle hunting!
