Our Review of the Fresh Balsam Candle

Cold sniff:  On cold, you get a strong balsam scent that is very reminiscent to a fresh cut Christmas tree.  I don’t really get the eucalyptus leaves, pretty much straight balsam.

Lit Scent: Once lit, the balsam scent intensifies, getting a bit stronger than on cold.  Again, nothing really balancing the balsam note.  It really smells like a Christmas tree.   

Scent Throw & Strength: This one is intense.  On a scale of 1 to 10, the scent strength on this candle is a 20.  The throw is also a 10 out of 10, as it filled both our ground floor & upstairs with a strong balsam note.  Some of our family members asked if we could blow this candle out after complaining of headaches, so beware of the power of this scent.  

Final Thoughts: This is a great choice for those who love strong Christmas tree scents.  However, don’t pick this up if candles give you headaches or you’re looking for a medium scented candle.

“It is literally Christmas in a jar, and it fills the room instantly. Almost everytime I pass by this candle in my house, I lift the lid for a quick smell. During the holiday’s EVERYONE comments on how wonderful the house smells. Imagine having a Christmas tree in every room in your house. That is what it smells like. It’s STRONG!! and it makes it very comfortable for everyone. I can’t recommend it enough.” Review
