Candles From the Keeping Room - Red Saffron

Scent Description: Warm and spicy cardamom, pink pepper, grapefruit, mandarin, bergamot, sandalwood and musk.

Date Received: February 2016

Weight Melted: 1.2 oz

Location of Warmer: Kitchen, in tealight warmer

Cold Sniff: 4/5 Wonderfully earthy, ever so slightly sweet incense.

Warm Sniff: 4/5 That sweet note died off and was replaced with a heavy bergamot. All of the other notes are there, albeit they blend together in an almost indistinguishable way. I still enjoyed this very much, but it almost felt like each note was choking the other out.

Scent Strength: 2/3

Scent Throw: >3/3 This filled the entire house, minus the guest room and master bedroom which both had their doors closed. While I enjoyed this, Michael was a very unhappy camper. I don't think he was a fan of this melt. LOL

Melting Power: 3/5 I got about 4 and a half hours of scent from this melt.

Repurchase: Yes! I quite enjoyed this earthy muskiness and it was a nice break from the bakery & sweet fruity scents I've been melting. I do wish that these sorts of scents translated better to wax, though. It's a lot of hit and misses for me, finding a scent that I liked in perfume form and finding a wax version that smells just as awesome.
