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.
