We only buy highly rated fragrance oils from our suppliers so we know they smell good! However, scent preferences are very personal. We will do our best to be descriptive of the scent but recommend you avoid scent profiles you do not typically enjoy. If there's a candle style you love, but it's not shown in your favorite scent profile, drop us a line and we will see what we can do.
To help you decide which candle scent is best for you, The Gothic Chandlery will refer to three types of fragrances notes: top, middle and base. The top notes are the first impression of the scent. The middle notes (sometimes called the "heart") are those notes that emerge after the top notes fade. The middle notes represent the character of the scent. The base notes are those that carry the scent and linger after the top and middle notes dissipate.
We use quality fragrance oils at load levels that are safe yet strong. We do our very best to cure out candles for a minimum of two weeks. Extra curing time increases the scent strength.
This scent is best described as luscious and sensual.
The top notes are Saffron & Apple. Black Currant, Blackberry, Vanilla are the middle notes while Anise, Patchouli & Amber add depth from the base.
