Candles From the Keeping Room - Pink Lilac and Willow

Scent Description: Notes of blue willow, water lilies, lilac blossoms, muguet, linden blossoms, wild bamboo, magnolia fields, mandarin leaf nuances, and subtle musk. I get a very flowery vibe from this. It reminds me of Summers at home and shopping for plants with my mom. It's a bittersweet thing. Maybe because I'm on my period again feeling particularly nostalgic about my past as I move forward in life. Maybe it's because I also remember that my Dad never liked the smell of flowers because it reminded him of graveyards.
Weight Melted: 1.0 oz
Cold Sniff: 3/5 Very heavy on the lilac. I couldn't pick anything else out here
Warm Sniff: 4/5 The other notes were able to make their appearance, but this was a very heavy lilac scent.
Scent Strength: 2/3
Scent Throw: 4/5 This didn't quite fill all of the bedroom
Melting Power: 4/5 I got about 15 hours of scent from this tart.
Repurchase: Yes. It was a very nice Spring and Summer type scent.


  1. I'm not a floral fan but I do enjoy lilac scents for, like you mentioned, nostalgic reasons. Growing up, we had a huge lilac bush in our backyard, almost right outside the door. I have so many memories of childhood summers, and all the carefree fun we had in those days. We have a big ol' lilac bush just off our front porch here in my adult-life home. Even the slightest hint of lilac in the air gets me feeling all sentimental. =)


  2. I have been seeing this scent pop up recently and it sounds lovely! :)
