Fresh citrus, green herbs, and the tangy bite of olive make this a must-try for the kitchen. Complex and sophisticated.
Melt Size: 2.5 ounces
Melt Type: Clamshell
Type of Wax: Blend of beeswax and soywax
Where Melted: Room size 8′ x 9′
How Melted: Bulb melter (with 40W bulb). 2 cubes used.
Initial Thoughts/Cold Sniff: It was green and earthy with some perfuminess to it. A very complex scent with a great cold scent throw.
FUN FACT: Milkhouse Candle Creamery was started by Eric and Janet Sparrow in 2002.
- Packaging/Presentation: This was a typical clamshell style package with a hinged lid. The label on front was plain – no fancy coloring or pictures. The scent name and company name were clearly displayed on front. The wax was smooth on top and soft to the touch. The cubes were easy to break apart. There were no dyes in the wax.
- Scent: I loved this scent. I found it to be something I would enjoy while having a day at the spa. The olive had a twang to it that really made the scent very different. The lemon was a bit subdued, but I could definitely tell the citrus was there. Unusual and nice.
- Scent Intensity: This scent was moderately strong.
- Scent Throw: I was able to smell this scent in the room it was in without difficulty. It wafted on out into the hallway and kitchen without a problem. I could even smell the wax melting in my main living area, which is quite a distance from where this melt wax stationed. Not an overpowering scent, but one I could easily detect from far away.
- Longevity: I had this wax melt in my warmer for approximately 8 hours before I noticed a significant drop off.
Comparison of final thoughts to initial thoughts: I thought I might enjoy this scent on cold sniff and it ends up that I did. It was complex and pleasing, with a good scent throw.
Would I repurchase? Yes, if on sale.
Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.
Happy candle burning ~
