            Pros

            • Great name
            • Nice, complex scent

            Cons

            • Light (could be pro)

            The powerful allure of teak wood meets up with bamboo greenery to present an encapsulating new fragrance.

            Melt Size: 3 ounces

            Melt Type: Clamshell

            Type of Wax: Paraffin-soy blend

            Where Melted: 10′ x 12′ room

            How Melted: Bulb melter with 40 W bulb. 3 cubes used (approx. 1.5 oz)

            General: This natural, outdoor scent won me over with its subtle and complex woodsy blend. The name is super-creative and catchy! This site also offers candles and bar soaps for variety.

            FUN FACT: Bamboo’s natural structure is very durable and strong. It is often used as a renewable material to promote sustainability.

            Rating Breakdown:

            • Packaging/Presentation: These clamshell-style melts came in the typical clear hard plastic package. A sticker with a playful panda munching on a bamboo stick in a brown-patterned oval was on the top of the package. The name of the company and scent were on the sticker, above the picture. The wax itself was a medium green, well-matched to the scent name. I absolutely loved this picture! I give extra kudos to this name, which is so whimsical and perfect for the scent, and whose playfulness matches the panda perfectly! In general, I think clamshell packaging a little plain but this was embellished with a great pic and name.
            • Scent: This is a unique and complex scent. I could smell the “greenery” of the bamboo, more of a woodsy than a fresh green. The teak scent added a touch of musky wood: complex and almost spicy. It is a nice combo. I would say it almost has a “masculine” scent, though I hate to generalize scents. It has a musky-woodiness which typical “masculine” scents tend to have. For me, it’s a little too woodsy but I could appreciate its complexity and know people who would love this.
            • Scent Intensity: This was a light to medium strength scent, both on dry whiff and while burning/melting. It was quite subtle overall.
            • Scent Throw: The throw was light to moderate. I could smell this burning several feet away from the melter but not at the periphery of what is a medium-sized room.
            • Longevity: I could smell this all day on the day it was burning, for about 8-9 hours, which is as advertised (up to 8 hours) or slightly longer.

            Comparison of final thoughts to initial thoughts: I would purchase this as a gift for someone who likes complex, woodsy, light scents with an appreciation for great titles/names and plays on words.

            Hello candle lovers… my name is Ann Frati and I’m absolutely thrilled to be doing reviews for Candlefind & Candle Scoop! As a big fan of everything olfactory, I love candles, melts, room sprays, lotions, butters, shower gels, soaps: basically, all of it. In general, anything with the potential for creating aroma is a product I am willing to try and will likely enjoy. Of course, candles are the core and at the “scenter” –pun intended ;)–of any scent lovers collection.
