While she said the 2016 version was better than 2015, she was hoping the scent would be more like the hand soap.

She said it was a sweet scent early on, but the merlot came through on later burns. In terms of scent throw, the reviewer said she got a inconsistent throw, rating it as a 7 on early burns, but a 5 toward the end. Overall, she liked, but didn’t love the scent and didn’t know if she would repurchase in the future.
