Molton Brown Coco & Sandalwood Candle
Well, I’m not having the best week with reviews! The Molton Brown Coco & Sandalwood Candle is another fail – for being so lacking on fragrance. I’ve had this on the burn (the 3 wick version) for the best part of an hour and it’s very shy on scent. It looks the part, I must admit, with a beautiful, thick, shiny white glass with some frosting round the top edge. The fragrance, when I check the information on it, is supposed to be a blend of coconut, cinnamon and milk a the top, with jasmine, cedarwood and copahu in the middle, and sandalwood, guaiac wood and vetivert to complete at the bottom.
The most I’m getting from this is the slightly sooty smell of the wick. At £55, I would be gutted if I’d bought this to fragrance a room because, it only barely does. Usually, when you open a candle, you get a big, intense blast from just opening the box, and I suppose it was telling that I got only the mildest, milky coconut aroma – pretty enough – from the get-go.
I love some of Molton Brown’s products but this one is too mean and skimpy on the very thing it’s supposed to be. I’m not even linking.
