Review Summary:

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: A beautiful candle, perfect for gift-giving. It came in a black silk hat box style container tied with a gold-lettered black silk ribbon. The hatbox had a large, red rectangular label with the scent name in white scroll font and the company name on top. Once the ribbon was untied, the lid of the hat box could be removed. There was a round cardstock bearing the typical candle warnings sitting on top of the candle (which was good to stick into a drawer for scenting). The candle had 3 thin wicks, well placed. The wax was white in color. The candle vessel was the signature scallop glass with Douglas Little's initials scrawled on the bottom. The glass container was a deep red. Just gorgeous! 5/5
  • Scent: The scent was beautiful! Very sweet and fruity with an end twang. The sharp/sweetness was what was most noticeable and what would be expected from the rhubarb. There were bursts of the citrusy blood orange that were simply intoxicating. The sandalwood kept it grounded and gave it a slightly heavier feel. Perilla is supposed to be a herb - I'm not sure what that smells like and I'm not sure I picked out any herbal notes. This scent was very bright, energizing and refreshing. 5/5
  • Scent Throw: The scent completely filled the smaller room - I was hit by the scent as soon as I opened the door. It behaved similarly in the slightly larger room. Never too strong...it was enough to fill the air and remain a constant presence. 4/5
  • Performance: This candle had a great burn - nice "controllable" flames and a full wax melt pool in a very short period of time. I did not notice any black sooting. The candle did burn down quickly with its 3 wicks. It had approximately a 40 hour burn time. I loved the way the candle vessel glowed while burning - the red candle jar was very beautiful. 5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Excellent CS with fast shipping. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 5/5 (Technically 4.8 but rounding up for scent and performance.)
