Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: Love the look of this candle jar. It’s their typical 3-wick candle jar with a confetti ring around half the jar. There is a gold gift ribbon around 1/2 the jar and a black gift label with the scent name on it in gold font. Very festive for ringing in the New Year! The wax was a pretty deep purple and the lid was gold with an embossed print on it. 5/5
  • Scent: The scent was not quite what I expected. From the scent description, I expected this to be more floral. It was not. To me, this was a soft, perfumey type candle scent. I thought I smelled some amber and vanilla. This was a very pretty scent, just not what I expected. 3/5
  • Scent Throw: This candle had a very mild scent throw, especially when compared to many other B&BW candles. I could smell it in my laundry room, but just barely. 2/5
  • Performance: I wasn’t happy with the wicks on this candle. Shortly after burning this candle, I got very low flames and a minimal melt pool. The wax did melt all the way across. Because of the low flames, this candle did last longer than many of the newer B&BW candles. Burn time for this candle was close to 40 hours. 2.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Excellent CS from B&BW  5/5
  • Overall rating: 3.5

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.








Happy candle burning ~

  1. Beautiful candle! I always find with B&BW candles that for me they are a 9 out of 10. Meaning every once in a while the scent throw or the scent it’s self isn’t what I thought it would be. So you do get disappointed every once in a while.

    • I love these candle jars. So pretty and festive! I do like the majority of the scents I try from here. I guess no one can like them all.

  3. OMG! I absolutely love this scent!!! by far the best one! It has a very distinct smell to it, almost musky or leathery. I can only find this on Amazon. I can’t wait for it to come back!!
