Image for Seville Row Candle- OK, but disappointing

The scent of the Seville Row candle is very nice, but it does not put that fragrance into the air when it is burning!

Considering that I bought this from a mark-down table for $1.99 instead of the $6.39 it originally sold for, I am not going to complain. But if I had paid full price for this candle I would have been very unhappy.

The candle was originally a tall pillar, 3 inches in diameter and 8 inches tall. Using a hot knife, I cut this in half to make two shorter candles. The extra half which is stored in my drawer releases a wonderful scent whenever I open the drawer. But the half on the table, which we light for every meal just doesn’t produce the level of fragrance you would expect from a candle that smells so good when it is cold.

There is no description of the fragrance on the wrapping. I would describe it as some combination of cinnamon and fruity. It seemed appropriate for both fall and Christmas, so I bought it.

I also thought that more of the middle of the candle would soften up as it burned, so that I could smooth the cut edges at the top of the candle. But the wax must be a little harder than in some candles, because instead it is burning a well about 1 1/2 inches across down into the middle of the candle, but the edges are barely getting soft. So, this will result in yet another candle that has to have a small candle put in the hole to keep using it, or else I’ll have to melt it down and make it into another candle. Or I could throw it away, but I never can bring myself to do that. It seems so wasteful!
