Smells like a cough drop! Totally not what I was expecting :( going to return.
It's a gift shipping directly to recipient. I haven't experienced Hotel Lobby candles in person, but trust the gift guide I learned about Hotel Lobby from. Plus - the description sounds lovely, it looks beautiful, the reviews are glowing, so I ordered it!
The packaging is amazing and very high end. The vessel is sleek and has an appealing look. The scent of the candle is described as cinnamon, cardamom, bergamot, cedarwood, amber, which are all notes I usually love and gravitate too. However, for some reason the smell of this candle misses the mark for me. It does not smell very nice and in the vessel has a very strong scent. Once burning, the throw is not very strong (which is strange since the smell unlit is very strong).
not very strong fragrance.
The smell is incredible and it lasts hours (literally - almost 12 hours!) after you stop burning the candle. I can’t wait to buy more!
