What’s That In My Melter? Gardenia votive, Kringle Candle Company

I recently melted a Gardenia Kringle Candle Company votive in my bulb melter (1.7 ounces, 40W bulb). This was a very powerful gardenia Kringle Candle Company votive candle - #candles-#KringleCandlescent. It was heady and strong – I smelled all flower with no greenery. I love the scent of gardenia, but I do think I would have liked a little touch of greenery to this one to tame it a bit. Even though I enjoyed the melted votive, I don’t know if I could handle a large jar candle in this scent, as it might trigger my migraines. I don’t see this particular scent offered on their website at the moment, so it might be discontinued.

Not the Gardenia you remember, ours stays botanically true and avoids an overly-sweet interpretation

Do you like gardenia scented candles?


Happy candle burning ~

  1. Andrea, I agree with you: the gardenias are such heady scents in general that it’s really a plus to have some greenery to buffer the mega-floral scent of it. Regardless, gardenia is a really nice floral scent. Thanks for the info!

  2. As I don’t use gardenia scented candles yet, I will buy gardenia scented candles. It’s looking good.
