Scent is very close c to actual smell of lilacs. Not overwhelming. I like the label, too.
Roots Southern had this candle burning in the bathroom. I took a picture and asked the hostess where I could get it from. I purchased 2 and tried a new flavor. This is by far my fav.
Some lilac scents can be cloying or one-note. This one is not that!
This candle somehow captures the entire experience of coming across a lilac tree and smelling it - not just the blossoms, but the whole tree, the freshness of moist soil, etc.
I currently live in NYC, but if I crack the window on a rainy morning and burn this candle at the same time, I can close my eyes and ALMOST feel like I’m back in northern Michigan.
The lilac & willow is my favorite scent by far, smitten comes in a close second. The candles burn so smoothly and have great burn time. My absolute favorite candles!
