Bath And Body Works - French Lavender

This isn't exactly a melt, so I can't rate it with my usual rating system. I'll just tell you guys about this beauty.
I bought this at the beginning of April, along with a lot of other things, because my family had sent me money and one of my best friends insisted that I spend it on myself instead of simply putting it into savings. It was during the introductory $10 offer, and now I wish I'd picked up a second one.
This is simply lavender. Pure, flowery lavender. It's not very sweet, so if you're looking for a sweeter lavender, this isn't for you. It's very strong, too. I filled the entire apartment and half of the lot the apartment's on with the scent of lavender while burning this. To me, this lavender was a very in-your-face scent. You knew someone was burning or melting something whether you were consciously thinking about it or not.
I am a bit disappointed in the burn time. It doesn't feel like I burned this that long, but that could be that I've been doing so many other things over the course of burning this candle down. As you can see, I've burned it pretty low. In hindsight it probably lasted a lot longer than I gave it credit for. I'd light it at the beginning of the day, clean and cook and take care of Diana and do school work, and it'd be midday before I'd blow out the candle. A solid 8 or 9 hours of burn time each time, times... well, the past month. Yeah, I'd say it has a pretty good burn time. I couldn't give you actual hours, though. It also helps hide the scent of crap that stunk that I couldn't locate the source of at the time. In any case, I will be buying this again soon. Maybe at their semiannual sale, if they have it on sale, or at their next 2/$22 sale. I miss when it was just 2/$20. Do you remember those days?
