The scent is refreshing and sweet, but not too overwhelming, and it reminds me of strolling on the beaches of Hawaii.
This candle burned perfectly. No wick issues. Clean burning from start to finish. I just had to trim the wick before each lighting. Easy peasy.
The candle is designed to replicate an ‘exotic escape’, and alongside a prominent osmanthus fragrance, you’ll also get other different fruity fragrances, mixed with some warmer ones such as spicy vanilla, musk and woody notes.
This is a more relaxing, me-time kind of a scent.

What reviewers didn't like

Strength – on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this candle an 8 in a small room.
The reason why I will not give it the whole 10 despite loving it so much, is due to the fact that the smell does not linger on for too long.
