Winter Wonderland – That includes warm notes of cinnamon, clove, vanilla musk and mulberry. Hints of cassia root, eucalyptus, amber, fir balsam, pine, and cedar.
Candle Size: 8 ounces
Type of wax: Soy
Stated Burn Time: Approximately 75 hours
Where Burned: Room size 6′ x 6.5′
Initial Thoughts/Cold Sniff: Fresh, clean, and invigorating! I could smell the balsam and pine with the crisp eucalyptus. Strong cold sniff.
FUN FACT: Chi Soy Candles is located in Menifee, California.
- Packaging/Presentation: This was a squat mason jar candle with a dulled, bronze lid. There was a white label that wrapped halfway around the jar, which included the company name. The scent name was located on the bottom warning label sticker. The wax was dye-free and there was a single, thick wick in the center. There was also one of those stay-fresh packs inside the candle, which I thought was neat. Overall, this was a very clean looking candle that had an air of sophistication.
- Scent: Incredibly beautiful. This was more than the fresh pine or fresh tree scents I’m used to smelling. I could smell the warmth from the vanilla musk and the hints of spice. The tree scent was a bit more complex, as I could smell the distinct smell of sweet cedar mixed in with the pine and balsam. The eucalyptus is what set the entire scent off, making it fresh, cool, and clean. I loved it!
- Scent Intensity: This candle scent was fairly strong.
- Scent Throw: I loved the throw I got from this size candle. I could smell the scent as soon as I walked into the room where it was burning. It filled that room without difficulty. With the door open, I could smell the candle as the scent wafted on out into my hallway and on into my kitchen. Nice!
- Performance: This candle had a nice, clean burn. I was able to obtain a full wax melt pool in a relatively short period of time. The melt pool stayed thin but even. The wick kept a nice, big flame that was manageable throughout. I never noticed any black sooting. The candle burned for approximately 62 hours.
Comparison of final thoughts to initial thoughts: I think the complexity of this scent came out once it was burning. I could smell mostly the pine and eucalyptus on cold sniff, but the other notes really came out once the wick was lit.
Status of the jar: This jar is heading to the local recycling center.
Would I repurchase? Yes
