Review Summary:

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was the pillar style candle jar - a tall, relatively slender cylindrical jar with a matte chrome lid. The lid had raised "beads" around the edges with the company name embossed on the top. The label showed a very closeup picture of deep red roses. The wax color was a deep red. This candle had a single wick. 4/5
  • Scent: This was a luscious, deep red rose scent. To me, this was like smelling the actual petals of a red rose. This was a heavier rose scent but very authentic and pretty. 4.5/5
  • Scent Throw: I was disappointed with the scent throw of this candle. It started out moderately strong, but after burning about halfway through it was noticeably lighter in throw. I could barely smell it by the time I was to the bottom of the jar. 2/5
  • Performance: This candle had a clean burn - I didn't notice any black sooting. A full wax melt pool was obtained in little of no time and I had a deep wax melt pool throughout. The wick was easy to maintain. This candle did burn for approximately 80 hours. 4.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): I did not have any problems with this order. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4/5

Comments: Read my comparison of True Rose with Fresh Cut Roses from Yankee Candle Company.

Would I repurchase? No. While I loved the scent, I would not purchase it in this style jar again. I much preferred this scent in wax melt form – read my review here.
