Review Summary:

Scent description: Your perfect escort to any holiday party – green sage, sandalwood and Tonka bean.

Candle Size: 14.5 ounces, 3-wick candle

Stated Burn Time: 25-45 hours

Where Burned: Laundry room (8′ x 9′)

Great For: People who like masculine scents, New Year’s celebrations/gifts, Bathrooms, Bedrooms

Comments: Although I found this to be a wonderful scent for its type, it is not the type of scent I usually prefer to scent my home. That is the only reason I would not repurchase this particular candle.

Would I repurchase? No.

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: I love all the candle jars in this line. It had colorful confetti around the front of the jar and a black gift ribbon. The black gift tag was where the scent name was located, in all caps. The wax was black in color – very elegant! The lid was a dull gold with an embossed pattern on it. 5/5
  • Scent: I thought this was definitely a more masculine scent. It smelled like a man’s cologne, but not harsh or cheap. It was very smooth and warm and very sexy. 4/5
  • Scent Throw: This candle had a better throw than Party Dress. It filled my laundry room easily and I even smelled it somewhat outside the door. 4/5
  • Performance: No problems with candle performance on this one. I had nice big flames that never got out of control. I did not notice any black sooting. I obtained a full wax melt pool very quickly. This candle burned faster than Party Dress. I had approximately 30 hours of burn out of this candle. 5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): No CS problems from B&BW. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4.5 (Technically 4.6 but rounding down because of scent throw.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.









Happy candle burning ~

  1. I hear you Andrea. I don’t really gravitate toward the manly smelling candles. However, my husband does like them so every now and then I will use one to keep him happy! He puts up with all my bakery scents that make him hungry so I can take a candle that smells like man cologne too!

    Nice review
