Review - Febreze 2oz. Candle
I was not even aware Febreze had such sets available until I'd seen a well known YouTuber mention them. Even then, I was surprised that she liked them so much. I guess I'd just sort of dismissed them because they are 'air freshener aisle' candles. But the set she had in her video, and the only set I found at my store at that time, was the yummy sounding Spice Collection. It contains three candles: Gingersnap Vanilla, Anjou Pear Spice, and Cinnamon Dolce.
The one I chose to burn first is the brown one (left, back), the Gingersnap Vanilla scent. Described as '...the spice of cinnamon in freshly baked gingerbread is balanced by creamy vanilla,' it was sort of a sharp gingerbread scent, not really like the creamy, cozy scent of gingerbread cookies. The cinnamon made it extra spicy. The scent was ok, a bit too harsh for my liking, but the throw was surprising. I admit, I was not expecting much from this candle. This little guy did a good job of scenting our huge living room and then some, but was not overpowering.
When I first lit this candle I had it sitting on the top shelf of my desk, where my tart warmer sits, so I could judge the scent and throw like I would with a tart. I suspect my desk does not sit level because I noticed the candle was burning to one side . . .
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this little Febreze candle. I know there are other sets like this one in a variety of different scents, and I know there are other sizes and types of Febreze candles. (I received a larger 5.5oz one for Christmas.) The air freshener aisle is never where I think to buy candles but after trying this one I think it's at least worth taking a look now and then. Who knew??
