Review: Thymes Mandarin Coriander Aromatic Hobnail Candle

Thymes Mandarin Coriander Aromatic Candle (1)Thymes Mandarin Coriander Aromatic Candle (2)

Candles are everyone’s favorite way to help deliver fragrance to a “smelly”, particularly odiferous room. They can deliver fragrance without being so strong that it is overwhelming. A good candle can give off a distinctive odor that can help let one associate with memories, hopefully pleasant. It’s worth spending a little bit more money on a candle that will last longer, have an aroma that is stronger and is definitely more pleasant than the less expensive candles you can find.

The Thymes Mandarin Coriander Aromatic Hobnail Candle has a very pleasant aroma that combines cold-pressed mandarin, grapefruit, lemon balm and sweet orange peel. These wonderful, vibrant citrus notes combine with sweet marjoram, coriander, rosemary leaves, bold notes of cedarwood, ivy and Irish moss. When you take a whiff of the candle it smells like a bright, woody citrus fragrance. I love it! These are the only kinds of fragrances I can handle because of my migraines. Having this keep my room smelling clean will be great because I can keep from feeling sick.

This candle is supposed to be long lasting. That is what I am looking for. I lit it up one night and let it go for 4 hours. If DSC03245you look at the photograph on the right you can see that after 4 hours, this is how much the candle burned. It’s not that much. I kept it inside, away from the wind. It was in my kitchen and I wanted it to get rid of the fish smell, because we had cooked fish for Friday dinner. I will say that it did get rid of most of the smell, not all of it. I asked my daughter’s friends who came over if they could still smell the fish in the house and they said barely but it was still perceptible. I am happy about that. Because let me tell you this, prior to using the candle, the odor was horrendous!

The candle comes in a hobnail container, made of glazed white ceramic. It looks good with just about any décor. And it would make a great hostess gift, holiday gift or gift for any occasion.

Thymes Mandarin Coriander Aromatic Hobnail Candle is $30.00 in a 5.5 oz. net wt./155 g container and is available on www.thymes.com or at specialty stores where Thymes collections are carried. There are many other wonderful items in the Mandarin Coriander collection, such as hand wash, soap, hand lotion, larger candles and home fragrance spray.
