What better way to close out the month of October than to review this stunning RibbonWick Candle scented in October Sky? This candle can be purchased on the Virginia Candle Company website, but I bought mine during a sale at The Lampstand. I had not burned a RibbonWick before, so I was intrigued by how it would look, burn and smell.
The candle vessel itself is stunning – it is hefty and textured with a rich copper coloring and gold flecks. The shape is a bit unusual but decorative and inside is a creamy white wax. The candle holds approximately 13 ounces of wax and has a listed burn time of 40 hours.
A buttery rich pumpkin fragrance mixed with sweet almond extract baked in a warm strudel.
The cold sniff was mostly a spicy pumpkin and was notably light. Not to be daunted, I decided to light this candle just to see what it would do and how the scent throw would change.
I will say that I was mesmerized by the look and the sound of this candle. It was gorgeous! Something to have on display. And the scent? Pumpkin perfection. It was a rich, heavy pumpkin scent with cinnamon and nutmeg easily detectable. It was very creamy – almost like a pumpkin pie filling. I thought the scent throw was moderate – enough to know the candle was lit in a medium sized room, but not super strong. That was really ok – the beauty of this candle really made up for it! The crackle-crackle-pop-pop was comforting and nice to hear in the evenings. I will say that this candle did smoke a lot more than I am used to with regularly wicked candles. That bugged me a little but not too much. There was no wasted wax on the sides, which made me a happy camper. This is a candle I would repurchase and I would also like to try other RibbonWick candles.
Have you tried RibbonWick candles? What do you think?
Happy candle burning and Happy Halloween!
