Review Summary:

Scent Description: Fun, festive, and fresh, mistletoe is a holiday tradition everyone enjoys. We combined the woody scents of mistletoe, berries, pine boughs, and holly to create a memorable blend that's just right for the season. But don't forget to hang the real deal if you're looking to steal a holiday kiss.

Candle Size: 22 ounces. Large apothecary jar.

Stated Burn Time: 110-150 hours

Where Burned: Powder room (6′ x 6.5′), Laundry room (8′ x 9′) and a large open living area.

Great For: Christmas; New Years celebrations/gifts; People who like woodsy scents

Would I repurchase? Yes

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was their typical large style apothecary jar with dark green wax and a single wick. The label showed a picture of mistletoe branches and berries. I love the jar style and color but was uninspired by the label. 4/5
  • Scent: Deep pine scent with a good mix of berries. Instead of a straight tree scent, this one is sweetened a bit with the scent of berries. This makes it a wonderful mix! I loved this scent. 5/5
  • Scent Throw: This candle had a strong scent throw. It was way too powerful for the powder room. It filled the laundry room and I could smell it past the closed doors. Once I moved it out to my large living area, that’s where it seemed to find its “home.” It scented the lower level of my home well with a permeating scent – not too overpowering, but ever present. 4.5/5
  • Performance: This is a slow burning candle. I easily got 120 hours burn time. I had a full wax melt pool (even though it took a long time to get there). No black sooting I noticed. 5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Excellent customer service. Fast shipping, no problems with this order. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 5/5 (Technically 4.7 but rounded up because this is such a great candle.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.



Happy candle burning ~

  1. Andrea I’m glad you liked this scent! I bought this scent in a melt and really didn’t’ like it. I couldn’t pick up any of the berry notes at all. In fact all I could pick up was a yucky green scent. All I can think of is that maybe it was old. It was super crumbly when I opened up the wrapping.

    • Hmmm, maybe so. I can see this scent being a love it or hate it one. Sorry it didn’t work out for you.
