Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation:  This wax melt was the typical scallop wax melt from YC in shrink wrap. The label showed a close-up of a few blood-red roses in full bloom. Beautiful! The wax itself was a deep red color. 4/5
  • Scent:  This was a very authentic red rose smell. It was as if I was smelling the actual petals of a red rose. I don’t care for many rose scents because they seem very fake-ish and way too perfumey. This was not the case with True Rose. Loved it! 5/5
  • Scent Throw:  The scent throw on this wax melt was very strong. It completely filled my room I had it in and even beyond. I could smell it in adjacent rooms on the first floor. Not an offensive, gag-make-me-sick kind of strong, but it permeated well. 5/5
  • Longevity:  This wax melt lasted several hours in my bulb melter. I kept this going non-stop and think the greatest intensity was in the first 6 hours. It started to fade then but it was still scenting the space well. 4/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable):  I had no problems with this order from YC. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4.5 (Technically 4.6 but rounding down for longevity. Given the price, I think this should have lasted longer.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.



Happy candle burning ~
