Review Summary:

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This candle was in a pretty, striped dark pink box with the words 'Wild Roseberry' written in playful font, mixing caps and small letters. The company name was in small print on the front of the box. The scent description was printed on one side of the box. Opening the box, there was a protective cardboard flap on top. The candle itself was protected by a clear, plastic dust cover. The jar was heavy in my hand with a thick bottom. It was larger at the top and tapered ever so slightly toward the bottom. The jar was frosted and white, with white wax inside and a single, thick wick. The name Henri Bendel was imprinted on the jar, toward the bottom (in small enough font not to be intrusive). 4.5/5
  • Scent: Ooooh what a pretty scent! The jasmine and violets made for a beautiful floral blend, more floral sweet and not powdery. The coconut was barely detectable but gave this scent a tropical flair. The citrus in this candle kept it fresh and from being too floral. (But make no mistake - predominantly floral, so avoid if you don't care for florals). Amazing blend. 5/5
  • Scent Throw: Super strong throw on this candle. It was too much for my smallest room and had to move it to keep from being overwhelmed. It did much better in the larger room, filling it with scent and beyond. This scent didn't singe nose hairs, but it kept churning out enough scent that it constantly made its presence known. 4.5/5
  • Performance: I got a full wax melt pool in no time with this candle on the first burn. Subsequent burns left me with a small rim of wax on the edges. Nothing the foil trick couldn't remedy, but I'd rather not have to do that on a $30 candle. It was definitely a slow burn and the 60 hour burn time was accurate. I didn't notice any black sooting and the flame stayed big yet manageable. 4/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Super fast shipping. Lightening fast even. Great CS, no problems with this order. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4.5/5 (Technically 4.6 but rounded down for performance.)
