This candle is much too sickly sweet for my taste. The throw is good, and the cold throw is more tolerable than the hot throw, but once the scent spreads throughout the house, it becomes a bit overwhelming to me. I’m burning it down so I can reuse the beautiful glass jar, but this unfortunately is not a candle that I became fond of. Seeing the good reviews made me want to try it out, but the first time I ordered the big one, it arrived broken and ended up cutting my hand on the shards. Target sent a replacement, but this one just wasn’t meant to be. Once it warms up and starts spreading, it has a sickly, medicine-like smell to me. It’s quite artificial. I’ve smelled better-made plum scents, but I think they should rethink the fragrance oil on this one. It lacks balance between sweet and fruity — too overly sweet without having any fruity (or even woody) notes to balance out the sugar. If you’re okay with sweet candles, you’ll likely enjoy this candle, but if you’re like me and want balance between the sweet notes and other notes, skip this one. Project 62’s Jasmine & Ylang Ylang or Honeycomb Rose (same company as this one) are better alternatives to satisfy your candle sweet tooth without being overpowering.
