Ecoya Guava & Lychee Sorbet Madison Jar Candle
Before Christmas, while I should have been shopping for other people, I decided to treat myself to a new Ecoya candle. Ecoya offer quite the range of candles, diffusers, and hand and body items, and with the limited edition ones on the market, I was spoilt for choice. In the end I went for Guava and Lychee Sorbet, and I'm in love.
As the name of this candle would suggest, it is a very sweet scent. The guava scent is quite strong, but I'm not entirely sure I've ever smelt a lychee to even be able to identify it within the fragrance. The combination is divine. I personally like all sorts of scents, and will cherry pick from my collection the one that suits my mood on the day, so own a small range of candles. When I smelled this in the store, I knew I had to have it. it's been great for summer, since I don't really feel like the moody spicier scents work on warm days, which we've had more than enough of.
The Ecoya Madison Jar Candle range has an estimated burn time of 80 hours total. This candle burns well, the scent is decently strong, but not too too much. I find that if I'm going to be chilling out in one spot, and put the candle near to me, I only need to burn this particular candle for 10-15 minutes to fill the space with the scent.
I've been using my wick trimmer to keep the wick nice and short, so I've been able to keep the glass jar mark free. There were a couple of light ones, which I was able to wipe away with my finger. In the past, I've had other candles that got all black up the sides, but can't be sure whether it's the candle burning nicely, or the wick being trimmed well. Possibly, it's both.
I'd say that this isn't the right scent for everyone. It does burn as the same smell as when you sniff it in the shop, so if you like it in the shop, you'll like it when you burn it. If you're buying this one as a gift, be sure that the person enjoys sweet scents. This scent is part of their core range, which means you can get this scent in 8 different products, so if you do love it, you can have it all over the place.
