Candle Size: 14.5 ounces
Type of wax: Exclusive blend of vegetable wax
Stated Burn Time: 25-45 hours

Initial Thoughts/Cold Sniff: This candle smelled of fresh flowers and, surprisingly, green apple to my nose on cold sniff. It was fairly strong.
FUN FACT: The first day of Spring is referred to as the vernal equinox.
- Packaging/Presentation: This was the 3-wick tumbler candle style from B&BW. This candle belonged to the White Barn collection. The label had the company name and scent name clearly displayed. The picture on the label depicted a white picket fence complete with beautiful white flower bushes in full bloom. The bottom of the candle housed the typical warning label with the scent description (Love!). The wax was off a mossy green color and there were 3 thick wicks inside. The lid was a dull gold color (which I didn’t like…it looked cheap).
- Scent: This scent definitely reminded me of Spring. It was fresh with a sweet, floral cleanness to it. It smelled like a mixed floral bouquet, not one particular flower. I was surprised to smell a tart, green apple scent in the mix. I thought it might be my nose playing tricks on me on cold sniff, but I definitely smelled it when the candle was burning. Interesting! I didn’t get any woodsy notes or greenery.
- Scent Intensity: This scent was fairly strong.
- Scent Throw: I could smell this candle the minute I walked into the room it was in. It completely saturated that space. With the door open, I could smell the scent as it traveled out from that room and on down the hallway. I could smell it in the kitchen and caught whiffs of it on into the main living area of my home.
- Performance: I obtained a full wax melt pool in a relatively short period of time. The wax melt pool was very deep and even. The wax melt pool was a beautiful dark green. The flames stayed steady throughout and didn’t give me any problems. I didn’t notice any black sooting and the rim of my jar was clean at the end. No wasted wax on the sides. The candle was a fast burner – I enjoyed it for approximately 32 hours.
Comparison of final thoughts to initial thoughts: Very similar on cold sniff and once burning. The apple I thought I detected did come out a bit more once the candle was burning.
Status of the jar: It is heading to the local recycling center.
Would I repurchase? Yes
