Description: Delightful lily of the valley blossoms and violets surround lush lilac in this springtime fragrance
Ugh, where do I begin? So my bf and I were lookin a new scent for Easter. We both were looking forward to this scent as we both love the smell of lilac. On cold throw, it does smell like straight up lilac blossoms…no lilies, no violets, just pure lilac. I heard thru the grapevine that the White Barn version burned better than BBW Fresh Picked version (btw how stupid was it that BBW sold two different incarnations of the same candle and the same time, really?!) so we got two of them of and some bulbs.
So after our last Spring candle burned down, we lit the Lilac Blossom candle. Little did we know that this candle was DID (DUD IN DISGUISE) Three words…hot…shitty mess! The wax melted so unevenly and canyoned like crazy! The poor wicks were struggling for dear life. And absolutely NOOOOO throw whatsoever!!! The only way you could smell anything is if you put your nose directly over the flames. We thought perhaps that the first candle was a dud and that we'd have better luck with the second one. Nope, not so much! It too was a DID! This was baaad! Like beyond "Mahogany Teakwood" bad! So with that said, back to the store they went! Lilac Blossom holds the dubious honor of being the very first candle I ever returned/exchanged at the store!
We did keep the wallflowers though; those SOBs hung on for dear life. But even the bulbs were disappointments; the scent would waver off and on. And unlike the candle, the bulbs smelled very synthetic, like Febreeze.
I will NEVER purchase this again!
Seriously BBW, real talk... get the wax/wick issues under control. This is one of the few really authentic scents that y'all have released ...get it together!!!
