Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: I absolutely LOVED the the look of this ceramic jar candle. It was a shiny brown color with a loose fitting lid. The wax was a brown color and there was a single wick in the center. There was a shiny label on the lid that indicated the company name and scent name. This candle looked great on the shelf! 5/5
  • Scent: This candle had a bit of a sweet bite to it on cold sniff – mostly a mix of ginger, amber and patchouli. Burning, it was hard to tell much of anything with the scent because of the poor scent throw. It was mostly a musky, earthy type of scent. 3/5
  • Scent Throw: The scent throw on this candle was little to none. 1/5
  • Performance: It also took an extraordinarily long time to reach a good wax melt pool. There was a well that was created as it did not melt all the way into the corners of the jar. It was a relatively low maintenance candle. I didn’t have to worry so much with the wick on this candle and it burned evenly. No black sooting noted. 4/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): N/A
  • Overall rating: 3 (Technically 3.25 but rounding down for scent throw.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.

Happy candle burning ~
