Candles From the Keeping Room - Snowballs

Scent Description: A sexy, spicy blend of peppercorns, nutmeg, and fresh clove; embodied with notes of elderberries, blackberries, plums, and fresh green oakmoss; with magical, effervescent top notes of carbonated fizzy pop and just a hint of cool mint.

Weight Melted: 0.9 oz

Location of Warmer: Living room, in tealight warmer

Cold Sniff: 5/5 Oakmoss is the bed of this blend, with a heavy mix of mint. On top lay peppercorns, a dash of nutmeg, and a healthy dose of fresh clove. Somewhere hidden in between these ingredients are the slightly tart and sweet hints of berries. I feel like I'm walking down the Christmas decoration aisle of any generic craft store you can think of.

Warm Sniff: 5/5 No surprises once melted.

Scent Strength: 2.5/3

Scent Throw: >3/3 This filled the kitchen/dining area, the hallway, the office, the entryway, and part of the living room.

Melting Power: 4/5 I got about 7.5 hours of scent from one snowflake.

Repurchase: Yes! This was a pleasant, earthy take on a classic Christmas scent.


  1. Earthy take on Christmas?!?! Yes, please.
