Review Summary:

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was a cute little apothecary style jar with a domed lid. The word ‘papaya’ was in green scrolled script and the word ‘mango’ was in a black all caps font. That gave the label a little bit of visual interest. There was a picture of a fruit tree high in the upper right corner that was just visible (looked like a papaya tree). The color of the wax was pink. There was a single, very thin wick in the center. 4/5
  • Scent: The scent was fruity and juicy, similar to the wax melts I used. The mango was the most noticeable scent - sweet and peach fuzzy. There was a slight tanginess to the scent that gave it a bit. The papaya was juicy and fresh. This scent was sweet, almost candy-like. So I wouldn't say this was authentic for the fruits, but very good indeed. 4/5
  • Scent Throw: I was amazed at the scent throw from this little candle. It scented my small powder room well! I could smell it as soon as I entered the room, no problem. It didn't overpower, which I didn't expect with such a small candle. But I was still pleasantly surprised at the throw! It scented well from start to finish. 4/5
  • Performance: The candle gave a full wax melt pool on the first burn. Subsequent burns found it tunneling. I tried the foil trick, but to no avail. There was a lot of wasted wax by the end. I didn't notice any black sooting. 2.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): N/A
  • Overall rating: 3.5/5 (Technically 3.6, but rounded down because of performance.)
