[Review] Frostbeard Studios – Pemberley Gardens

This candle is part of the limited time Spring collection!

Time for the candle I had the most concerns with: Pemberley Gardens.

When I opened the tin, it was like I got punched in the face with a rose. Not the most terrible thing to be hit with, but I was hoping for more of the lavender scent to make an appearance. So far, it’s the spring candle with the most scent throw.

Now, I have to say – for having such a strong initial throw, I expected this candle to be overpowering. It’s not though. I burned the candle for a couple hours, and while there’s a definite rose scent to the room right now, it’s not like someone is trying to shove an entire rose bush up your nose. It comes across as the scent you would get if you were walking through an actual rose garden. Sometimes the smell is stronger, and I can just perfectly imagine walking through a rose garden with puffs of wind carrying more of the scent as I go.

As someone who isn’t generally fond of roses, I have to give this candle its due: it’s good. The tin pictured is actually the 4oz, because as soon as the 2oz tin was gone, I turned around and immediately ordered the larger one. I figure this should last me until next year.

Still, I do wish the other scents were actually noticeable

[Review] Frostbeard Studios – Stay Home and Read

Get it while you can. After March, it gets moved to “Bring it Back.”

The candle for today is Stay Home and Read. It’s supposed to smell like a hazelnut cappuccino and a fireplace. I love hazelnut, but I’ve never had cappuccino (that I’m aware of, anyway), so I’m not sure how accurate that part of the scent is correct, but I can tell you I definitely do not smell a fireplace.

Like most of us, I always smell a candle before I actually light it; it’s usually a good indicator of what kind of scent to expect when it is lit. When I smelled this candle, I was immediately concerned that it would be too sweet. I gave it a chance though, and I’m glad I did. The scent is just barely on this side of not too sweet, and honestly? It makes my coffee taste better. Weird, but I like it. Not enough to buy the big candle, but enough that I would recommend it to anyone who likes the coffee shop feel when they’re writing.

[Review] Frostbeard Studios – Bedtime Stories

Finally put in my order for the spring seasonal candles, and I am so ready to find out what Frostbeard Studios thinks a Sexy Librarian smells like.

This candle is now part of their “Bring it Back” collection.

The candle for this week is Bedtime Stories. According to the makers, this candle should smell like jasmine, chamomile and sandalwood, and – while I’m not sure about the sandalwood part – it seems to have hit the mark. It reminds me of when we would get my youngest nephew ready for bed when he was a baby. I’m not sure what baby wash my roommates used on him, but I remember the scent would mix with the lavender and chamomile lotion I use myself, and it would smell just like this candle (his family is more into bedtime songs, rather than stories, but anyway…). I can’t say the candle is a favorite, but I don’t consider it a waste of money either.
