Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: Super gorgeous green glass jar. Although the website photo shows a glass vessel with some transparency, this glass jar was a solid, metallic green color with a silver metallic lining. There were three very thin wicks in the center of the candle. The wax is off white in color. The label on the jar had the scent name (Fir) in large scroll font. A very festive jar! It would be a great addition to holiday decor. My only complaint would be that the candle came without a lid or protective covering. I used an old chrome lid from Bath & Body Works to protect the candle top while not in use. 4.5/5
  • Scent: This scent was awesome! When I first stepped into the powder room, the first word that came to my mind was: beautiful. This is a wonderful Christmas tree scent with some creaminess (from the vanilla) and some crispness (from the mint). A very unique and beautiful combination – different from a typical Christmas tree scent. 5/5
  • Scent Throw: WOW, this candle was strong! It completely overtook the powder room and the laundry room. I could smell it outside those doors as well within minutes. It scented the large open living space very well. Awesome scent throw. 5/5
  • Performance: Despite the three wicks, this candle was a relatively slow burn. I got a full wax melt pool without difficulty. The flames stayed steady throughout and needed little maintenance. A very clean burning candle from start to finish. I got approximately 100 hours of burn from this candle (as opposed to the 150 mentioned). For the alternate burn time, I am downgrading it 1/2 a star. 4.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Excellent. Super fast shipping. Everything was packaged well. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 5/5 (Technically 4.8/5, but rounded up because this is a great candle!)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.

    • This candle was awesome! I eventually had to relegate it to the back of the house because it was so strong.
